Here a sensor, there a sensor…

Sensor technologies can be used to detect a wide range of inputs, from temperature and light to air pressure and ultrasonic waves. Across engineering disciplines, they are used by faculty members to collect data needed for groundbreaking work in energy, health care, manufacturing, infrastructure and more. Engineering researchers, it seems, are putting sensors everywhere. 

In this illustration, an ultrasound transducer sends a wave that pushes against arterial walls and records the wave propagation.

Sound on

Humans use sound to see where our eyes can’t — like when you’re putting up a shelf and tap the wall to find the studs. Those sounds, traveling through waves, answer questions — is this where the stud is, or is this just drywall? Over the years, technologies like ultrasound have used these sound waves…
