Sensors and Actuators

One of the main components of IoT devices is its hardware part, as the very definition of IoT refers to the link between hardware and software, but how do you actually link these two, processors or computers only process the signals and computations digitally, but where do they actually pick up physical signals or provides the response which processor gives?? This work is done by Sensors and Actuators, read this section to know more about these physical components which form a major part of IoT.
What is a control system? MEDIUM
In this article, we will discuss about control systems, their types, implementation, applications, importance, advantages, disadvantages, and so on.
Sensors Characteristics EASY
This article discusses characteristics of sensors i.e. static and dynamic sensors. Check out the different features of sensors in detail.
Choosing the best sensor for the job EASY
In this article, we will discuss what sensors are and what are ways to choose the best sensor for a given job.
Choose the right Actuator
This blog discusses all the factors involved in selecting the right actuator.
Sensors vs Actuators
This blog discusses sensors and actuators in IoT. It highlights the key differences between the two along with their applications.

Types of Sensors

As we have studied sensors in the previous section, we're gonna be looking at some of the sensors which are widely used making IoT projects and have become a standard in these cases. Sensors are like sensory organs of our body, they are very delicate and should be handled very carefully, similar to organs in our body. They come with certain specifications and should, and these specifications should be kept in mind while working on these sensors. Let's take a look at some of these Sensors in this section
Light Dependent Resistors (LDRs)
In this blog, we will learn about light-dependent resistors, how they work, and the projects that can be created using LDRs.
