At the start of the 21st century, production is confronted with new demanding situations stemming from globalization and the necessity for environmental sustainability. The growth of micro-/nano know-how signifies that precision engineering is now thought of to be one of many middle disciplines invaluable for dealing with the occasionally serious standards of latest product and procedure improvement. From uncomplicated examine to sensible purposes, complicated process-technological equipment for the layout and synthesis of micro-/nano-systems have gotten a growing number of very important. This number of papers, offered at 11th overseas convention on Precision Engineering, contains top of the range papers for business and medical resources, discusses modern applied sciences and forecasts destiny tendencies. issues lined contain yet are usually not constrained to:

• complicated production systems;

• ultra-precision- and micro-machining;

• nanotechnology for fabrication and measurement;

• swift prototyping and creation technology;

• new fabrics and complicated processes;

• computer-aided creation engineering;

• production method control;

• making plans and scheduling for construction and


Taken jointly, this quantity is an updated resource of data, a foundation of extra paintings for researchers and scientists, and likewise a great reference for graduate scholars in learning principles and strategies concerning precision engineering.

Applications of an acceleration sensor are not limited to airbag systems. It is also used in vehicle motion control systems, such as the Antilock Braking System (ABS), which prevents wheels from locking up based on the deceleration and rotation of wheels during braking. The ABS contributes significantly to vehicle safety, and has been installed in almost all vehicles, including low-price compact vehicles. Fig. 4. , collision-free or minimal in impact to pedestrians and vehicle occupants in the unfortunate event of a collision.

With progress in siliconsubstrate micromachining technology, sensor chips have been significantly reduced in size and costs. The overall volume of an accelerometer has been reduced to one-fiftieth, and the price to one-tenth, compared with the product in the early ’90s. This has made it possible to install airbag systems in almost all vehicles, from luxury cars to light vehicles. As the most advanced accelerometer, a capacitance type sensor (an electrostatic sensor capable of 㪉㪊 Y. Ueno and N. Kawahara detecting acceleration in terms of change in static capacitance) has been developed for practical application.

Piezo-resistors are formed in a bridge configuration on this diaphragm, so that when the diaphragm is deformed by the application of pressure, the sensor can detect the pressure in terms of change in resistance.
