Sensor arrays are used to overcome the limitation of simple and/or individual conventional sensors. Obviously, it is more complicated to deal with some issues related to sensor arrays, e.g. signal processing, than those conventional sensors. Some of the issues are addressed in this book, with emphasis on signal processing, calibration and some advanced applications, e.g. how to place sensors as an array for accurate measurement, how to calibrate a sensor array by experiment, how to use a sensor array to track non-stationary targets efficiently and effectively, how to use an ultrasonic sensor array for shape recognition and position measurement, how to use sensor arrays to detect chemical agents, and applications of gas sensor arrays, including e-nose. This book should be useful for those who would like to learn the recent developments in sensor arrays, in particular for engineers, academics and postgraduate students studying instrumentation and measurement.
