Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Identify Sensors.

Definition

Identification should include
  • encoders (e.g., incremental and absolute position)
  • position sensors (e.g., potentiometers, magnetic absolute position)
  • position sensors (pots)
  • speed sensors
  • hall effect sensors
  • distance, range sensors
  • color sensor
  • pressure sensor
  • light sensor
  • gyros and compass sensors.

Process/Skill Questions

  • Why are so many sensors necessary?
  • How does a position sensor work?
  • How is a gyro sensor different from a pot sensor?
  • What are the functions of gyro and compass sensors?
