We are signed up with aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus.

These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a "patron-driven demand" model.

A considerable amount of effort has been devoted, over recent years, towards the development of electronic skin (e-skin) for many application domains such as prosthetics, robotics, and industrial automation.

Electronic Skin: Sensors and Systems focuses on the main components constituting the e-skin system. The e-skin system is based on: i) sensing materials composing the tactile sensor array; ii) the front end electronics for data acquisition and signal conditioning; iii) the embedded processing unit performing tactile data decoding; and iv) the communication interface in charge of transmitting the sensors data for further computing.

Technical topics discussed in the book include:

  • Tactile sensing material;
  • Electronic Skin systems;
  • Embedded computing and tactile data decoding;
  • Communication systems for tactile data transmission;
  • Relevant applications of e-skin system.
The book takes into account not only sensing materials but it also provides a thorough assessment of the current state of the art at system level. The book addresses embedded electronics and tactile data processing and decoding, techniques for low power embedded computing, and the communication interface.

Electronic Skin: Sensors and Systems is ideal for researchers, Ph.D. students, academic staff and Masters/research students in sensors/sensing systems, embedded systems, data processing and decoding, and communication systems.
