Advanced Sensing Technology Design is an exciting field of research and development that is enabling designers to create adaptive and adaptive-augmented systems that use physical signals to operate and make decisions. Designers are able to use sensing technology to create systems that can accurately detect motion, pressure, temperature and other physical signals. With the use of machine learning, sensors can be programmed to understand the context of their environment and then autonomously make decisions based on the data they detect. This technology is not only being used in autonomous vehicles and medical applications, but is also being applied in the field of design and art. Designers are using sensors to create responsive installations and interactive art pieces, which can react to changes in their environment and respond to user input. Advanced Sensing Technology Design is an exciting field that is pushing the boundaries of what is possible in design, art and creativity.

Automated Test Systems

Automated Test Systems (ATS) are setups designed to enable automatic testing of products and services. This allows for more consistent and reliable testing procedures across different products, in a wide range of industries. Examples include integrated circuit testers, software verification systems and robotics controllers. ATS are typically composed of hardware and software components, allowing for detailed testing of physical items and services, as well as simulation of scenarios and environments.
