Paper Abstract

Immense computational power of today's processors cannot be fully utilized unless appropriate sensors and actuators are developed to link them with the outside world. A method is presented here to compare different sensors with each other and to evaluate their relative merits. Sensors are decomposed into two essential building blocks: a sensor shell and a sensing mean. Eleven different types of sensors, having the same sensing shells, are analyzed and compared to each other.
