Sensors give input to a system, actuators take output from a system. Sensors can be used in almost limitless applications ranging from satellites in space to seismic research underground. Sensors and actuators are essential in the devices and robots of the future.
The faculty researchers in this area exemplify the collaborative nature of the work done at Cornell Engineering.
