Abstract:
The paper develops a terminology to describe sensors which have been enhanced in some way by the integration of some additional processing circuitry. Several terms, current in the literature, including 'smart sensors' and 'intelligent sensors' are discussed and the ‘cogent’ sensor is introduced. This is followed by a brief review of existing and potential applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to microsystems, in terms of technology integration, device level performance enhancement and system level added functionality.
