Exponent electrical engineers and computer scientists consult in all areas of integrated sensor systems — from the clean room fabrication involved in making MEMS and solid-state sensors to real-world signals analysis and high-level logic control systems.

How does Exponent's multidisciplinary approach help you resolve complex challenges with sensors and sensor systems?

Exponent's multidisciplinary teams can help you tackle tough problems regarding sensor or sensor systems during all points of the product lifecycle — including design and development, product manufacturing, and failure analysis. We support clients with computer and communication architecture, software testing and validation, and control systems.

Sensors are used in many electronic system applications such as consumer electronics, medical devices, appliances, and automotive systems. Smart phones may be equipped with high-fidelity nine-axis sensors that monitor three axes of rotation, acceleration, and magnetic fields. Medical devices can use miniaturized pressure, flow, and temperature sensors to improve diagnosis and treatment through measurements from inside the patient. Automobiles include hundreds of sensors to monitor the condition of the vehicle and the driver, enabling embedded systems to make real-time adjustments to performance. In industry applications, remote sensing has proven useful for electrical grid operators who need to watch load conditions in real-time, and fiber-optic sensors are regularly employed in oil and gas drilling, allowing operators to receive critical telemetry from the drill-head.
