Measurement technology

Individual course

This course focuses on measurement systems and introduces basic skills to understand the measurement of physical quantities.

The course introduces the basic concepts related to the measurement system and provides the skills to define properties  related to the measuring of quantities. The participant will learn the static and dynamic properties of a measurement system and knows how to define them to different measurement equipment. Also the analog and digital measurements are learnt and the signal analysis related to them.

Upon completion of the course a student will be able to apply fundamentals of measurement and understand analog and digital signal conversions. The basic skills are useful when designing measurement systems for different applications.

Course contents

  • Static properties of measurements
  • Measurement accuracy and uncertainty
  • Dynamic properties of measurements
  • Signal conversions with AD and DA conversions
  • Digital and analog signal I/O connections
  • Digital filtering of measured signals
  • Digital measurement and control with machine vision and RF tags
  • Applications of digital and wireless measurement and control
