Services

By having us take responsibility for the development of a sensor or measurement system, or of custom software, you can concentrate your resources on designing and implementing a test or an experiment. If you do not have expertise in developing sensors and measurement systems, or in developing software, you may want to have us develop a turn-key system, or software package. If, on the other hand, your operation relies on keeping relevant expertise in-house, you may want to select, integrate, or develop some sensors, instruments, or software modules yourselves, and have us cooperate only on specific parts of your project.

Here is how our expertise can contribute to the success of your projects. Steps relevant to sensor and software projects are somwehat different in scope and are discussed separately.

Selection

Selection of technology best suited for you application is a key step.

Sensors Software

To select the optimum sensing technology we will

  • analyze your test / measurement / process control requirements
  • identify relevant technology or technologies
  • recommend or propose components / sensors.

To propose the optimum software architecture we will

  • analyze the process you intend to model or implement in software
  • identify relevant physical principles, mathematical techniques, and algorithms
  • recommend or propose software modules.

Menu

Integration

If sensors meeting your project needs are available off-the-shelf, we can integrate these sensors into a turn-key computerized measurement / control system. Likewise, if software modules are available off-the shelf, we can integrate these modules into a turn-key software package. Depending on the requirements, we may need to take these specific steps:

Sensors Software
  • adapt and optimize relevant sensing technology to your requirements
  • design and build interfacing hardware (mechanics, optics, electronics)
  • develop interfacing software as well as data acquisition / control software for the integrated system
  • develop documentation and userís manuals
  • install the system at your facility
  • train operators
  • provide technical support.
  • design and implement interfacing software
  • develop documentation and userís manuals
  • install the software at your facility
  • train operators
  • provide technical support.

Development

If required sensors or software are not available off-the-shelf, you may want to opt for the development of custom optical sensor(s), measurement system(s), or software package. To develop such custom products we may need to follows these steps:

Sensors Software
  • develop a physical model of the sensing technology and sensor / measurement system
  • conduct a feasibility study
  • design and build sensor / measurement system hardware
  • develop system control and data acquisition software
  • develop documentation and userís manuals
  • install the system at your facility
  • train operators
  • provide technical support.
  • develop a physical model of a system you want to simulate
  • conduct a feasibility study
  • select optimum numerical algorithms
  • design and implement the software package
  • develop documentation and userís manuals
  • install the software at your facility
  • train operators
  • provide technical support.
