Sensing strategies, Perception and Characterization at Micro- and Nanoscales
A very short 3-slides presentation of AS2M / SPECIMeN is available here.
Mechatronic systems operating at micro- and nanoscales are based on innovative designs that necessitate specific sensing devices and/or methods in order to optimize the overall performance of sensorimotor loops (sensing, control, actuation) operating at such scales.
Scientist issues explored by the SPECIMeN group are divided into two parts. One is focused on the development of sensing devices operating at micro- and nano-scales and the other is focused on the processing of the information provided by such sensors.
The development of sensors operating at micro- and nano-scales leads to problematics such as modelling, design and calibration of sensors, static and dynamic disturbances or defects characterization and compensation in order to maximize the performance and the quality of measurement must also be addressed (pdf, 1306 Ko).
The processing of information at micro- and nano-scale leads to problematics such as multiscale sensing for task automation, sensing strategies optimisation and multiscale characterization of structures and surfaces (pdf, 1421 Ko).
The SPECIMeN group deals with these scientist problematics in several research or industrial cooperative projects, some of them being conducted in partnership with others femto-st departments like MN2S, DMA and Optical department. The SPECIMeN contribution in these projects is mainly focused on (pdf, 793 Ko):
