STUDY, DESIGN AND TEST OF A TELEMETRY SYSTEM EXPLOITING RESISTIVE SENSORS

Applications in which an environment is hermetically sealed or presents harsh features, like extremely high temperatures or pressures, require the respect of specific criteria for designing a proper measurement system. Those concern dimensions, materials to be used, power supply and communication of the information. Telemetry devices represent a suitable solution to this issue. They consist of a readout unit able to supply a passive sensor, placed inside the measurement environment, and to receive information from it through the magnetic coupling created between them. The research activity focuses on the analysis and design of a telemetry system that uses a resistive sensor for its operation, which is tested through software simulations and experimental trials on real devices.

 
DEVELOPMENT OF A MEASUREMENT DEVICE FOR THE EARLY DETECTION OF BACTERIAL GROWTH

In clinical field, early detection of pathogens present in a sample is fundamental for the effective diagnosis of a desease. This activity studies different measurement configurations to investigate the best option for properly instrumenting a Petri plate to detect bacterial growth in the culture medium inside it. The resulting device be integrated in an automated platform.
