The subject solves systems working in interdisciplinary areas, the most frequently in the energy interface - optical, thermal, mechanical, electrical). There are explained physical principles of any sensors, especially of optical and mechanical quantities, principle of biometric pick-up information, principle of tactile display, etc. There re solved the basic methods of the signal pre-processing. Basic principles of actuators are described, ones are using for the control in instruments and systems of multimedia applications. The attention is focused on MEMS elements and systems and their applicability in modern instrument technology.
