In the first part of the module the issues
concerning the use of sensors for the control of additive manufacturing systems
and the basic knowledge of the theory of sensors will be analyzed. The second
part of the module is dedicated to the study of the different types of existing
The third part of the course will cover the basics of the technologies
used to manufacture advanced sensors based on the principle of Micro Electro
Mechanical Systems (MEMS).
The fourth and final part of the module will address
the use of MEMS technology for distributed and embedded sensors.
