Voschinin A.P., Skibitsky N.V. Interval approach to single-factor multi-sensor systems analysis


New interval approach to the analysis of multi-sensorís systems is presented under the assumption about the boundedness of calibration errors. A calibration technique is developed that allows to cull known bad sensors and select the best one from the specified sensors set. Within the interval paradigm, the problems of best and worst sensor selection are solved. Calibration curve plotting procedure with selected sensorsí readings integration is suggested. Sensor data fusion criteria are also included.

Khoruzhev G.M. Gas meter: a measuring system or an instrument? Terminology problems


The definitions of measuring system and measuring instrument used in reference literature are examined with the purpose of distinguishing these terms and their applicability to gas meter. The study concludes that according to the existing reference documents gas sensors are measuring instruments and therefore should not be certified as measuring systems.
