Motivated by the need for a multi-parameter sensing chip for water networks monitoring, we address here the specific case of a flow-rate sensor where the main challenge is the substrate material. Instead of using conventional low thermal conductivity materials such as glass, silicon has to be used. Indeed, a silicon substrate enables the co-integration of various kinds of sensors on the same chip as reported in this contribution. However, it increases the flow-rate sensor power consumption due to larger thermal leaks. We therefore design and study an optimized […]

Design of micro-fabricated thermal flow-rate sensor for water network monitoring

July 20th, 2017|Comments Off on Design of micro-fabricated thermal flow-rate sensor for water network monitoring

Ferdous, S., Regina, H.; Cesar, W.; Marty, F.; Nefzaoui, E.; Bourouina, T., IEEE, Design, Test, Integration and Packaging of MEMS/MOEMS (DTIP), 2017 Symposium on, july-17
We report on micro-machined flow-rate sensors as part of autonomous multi-parameter sensing devices for water network monitoring. Three different versions of the flow-rate sensors have been designed, fabricated and experimentally characterized. Those sensors are made of identical micrometric platinum resistors deposited on two different substrates-glass and silicon with and without insulation layer. The sensors were tested under the anemometric operating scheme. They were characterized under a water velocity range from 0 to 3.68 m/s. We highlight the fact that the glass substrate device is more sensitive and less power-consuming than the silicon one under the identical […]

Internet-of-Things (IoT) can be envisaged as a dynamic network of interconnected physical and virtual entities (“things”), with their own identities and attributes, seamlessly integrated in order to e.g. actively participate in economic or societal processes, interact with services, and react autonomously to events while sensing the environment. By enabling things to connect and becoming recognizable, while providing them with intelligence, informed and context based decisions are expected in a broad range of domains spanning from health and elderly care to energy efficiency, either […]

What is Proteus ?

AdaPtative micROfluidic and nano-enabled smart systems for waTEr qUality Sensing

PROTEUS is a project funded under the H2020 framework program for research of the European Commission. It investigates the smart integration of chemical sensors based on carbon nanotube, MEMS based physical sensors together with a cognitive engine providing on the fly reconfigurability. Produced deviced will be tested in the context of water monitoring.

PROTEUS mix competences from integrated smart systems area, Internet of Things, cloud based computing, long range wireless sensors in the field of water utilities.
