Some of the basic sensors and their operating principle have been explained in this chapter. There is the certain advantage of capacitive/inductive sensors over resistive sensors. The operating principle of capacitive sensors and type of measurement techniques are also explained. Finally, design and development of a low-cost portable sensing system were explained which can measure the impedance of a capacitive sensor and might be useful for different applications. There are some various applications explained by using capacitive sensors.
