Summary

Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) are miniature devices or machines, which integrate elements such as actuators, sensors, and a processor to form microsystems. The automotive sector is currently the biggest consumer of MEMS and this market is expected to grow, driven by safety legislation. Emerging applications in the aerospace field will face unique challenges related to harsh environmental conditions and reliability requirements. Part one covers MEMS in automotive applications, including safety systems, stability control and engine management. Part two describes MEMS in aircraft such as navigation systems, devices for health monitoring and drag reduction. MEMS thrusters for nano and pico satellites are also covered.
