Group Description

This group is dedicated to sensors and transducers.

Sensors are multidisciplinary objects. I've put this group into a more specific "Engineering > Electrical" category, because sensors are often viewed as a part of the EE domain.

Questions such as "I need to measure (or control) something. What sensors do I need? How can I interface them to the rest of my device?" are most welcome, because brainstorms are fun. Any well-formulated questions related to sensors are welcome.

Who should join: engineers, researchers, educated hobbyists, students. We like to help students, but we will not do your homework for you.

Now then, pay close attention to the next sentence… This group is not for helpless or inconsiderate.

No spam. Ban on 1st offense. I consider job postings spam. This is an engineering group, not an HR group. There are special groups for jobs. However, rare exceptions can be arranged in advance for the active members.
