What is a sensor?
sensor is basically a device which detects and converts your signal of interest into a measurable or observable quantity (mostly an electrical signal). Say for example, a pressure sensor detects pressure and converts it into an electrical output which can be further processed for actuation or to be displayed.

Somewhere on the block, try gooseneck attached to upper hose or proximiny. Remeber it threads into water jacket somewhere.
Knock sensor "listens" to the engine for the sound made by the engine when the octane level of the gasoline it is burning is too low for the current operating conditions…. The Electronic Control Module uses this information to adjust engine spark timing to alleviate the knocking that would be caused by the air/fuel mixture igniting too soon and eventually damaging the engine. Knock sensor is on the top rear of the engine nestled behind and under the intake manifold.
it should be in the air intake box, i beleave on the right side of the engine compartment, or it may be before the box (the bit with the air filter) normally after or on the i…nside of the the filter. it is in the airbox. its the only thing on the airbox with wires connected to it. its removed by simply pulling on it. if your air box has a little hole in it, the sensor has been removed. look around the area for a couple of wires with what looks like a black plastic bullet plugged into the end of it. just stick the bullet into the hole and youll be fine.
usually there is about a foot of wires coming out of the sensor and then there is a clip that connects to another set of wires
Compressor Inlet Temperature sensor for a Gas turbine engine.
The simplest detection of a magnetic field is done by another magnet. Or by an apparatus such as a Fluxgate magnetometer or similar.
A knock sensor is a piezoresistive sensor whose signal is varied by the amount of force or pressure applied to it.
A sensor is a device which responds to a certain cindition or state and responds to it, however the output signal of the sensor is quite low and sometimes unmeasureable. A sma…rt sensor is a device which senses and also processes the low level signal i.e. amplifies it to a measurable form.
A crankshaft sensor senses the engine revolutions to basically tells the the car when 2 inject and ignite the fuel
Which "sensor" are you asking about? I have many in my truck beginning with the seat-belt sensor that says if I have buckled-up or not.
The sensors that an engineer puts on a robot are entirely dependent upon the functions that the engineer perceives that the the robot will be called upon to perform. Some, b…ut not all, of the sensors may be: proximity sensors, pressure sensors, light sensors, magnetic sensors, a camera, temperature sensors, accelerometer, speed sensor... The question isn't, "what sensors does a robot have", but rather, "what sensors does the engineer think that the robot should have?"
a CKP or crank sensor provides the PCM with a crankshaft position signal. The PCM uses the signal to determine the firing order for each cylinder. a CMP or cam sensor is very …similar to a CKP, but produces pulses in relation to only cylinder #1 at TDC, a CMP determines the timimng for fuel injection on each cylinder
Robotic devices can have whatever sensors the designer WANTS them to have. A robotic device can be as simple as performing a basic operation, such as swinging an arm through… a 90 degree arc whenever an event occurs, to as elaborate as a humanoid robot that walks and performs basic tasks. The builder of the robot may wish to include a photo-sensor, that detects when a light beam is interrupted, or pressure sensors that detect when and how hard a robotic manipulator (imagine a hand) grasps an object. A robotic device can have temperature sensors, position sensors, angle sensors, voice recognition modules, television cameras that are connected to visual processors... as I said, whatever the designer wants to implement. But recognize that as the degree of complexity of your robotic devices increases, so too does the development time and the potential for component failure.
An OD sensor determines when your vehicle is in overdrive. If the overdrive light comes on in your vehicle, then there may be a problem with the transmission.
A sensor is a device or mechanism for detecting and quantifying a phenomena. It can be mechanical, electronic, biological, etc. A sensor net is a network or array of s…ensors that work together for some purpose. The sensors may be identical or different in type, depending on the purpose of the network or array of sensors. A few examples are: worldwide array of seismograph sensors used to determine magnitude and location of earthquakes around the earth national arrays of sensors (seismograph, air pressure, satellite based x-ray/gamma ray) for detecting possible atmospheric nuclear tests by other nations particle detector array for detecting the products of high energy particle collisions in accelerator experiments the rod and cone cells in the retina the eye that detect incoming light etc.
