Abstract
The paper presents a dedicated IEEE 1451.1 Transducer Block that enables plug & play transducers according to the recommendations of the IEEE 1451.4 standard. The Transducer Block is self-configurable based on the information stored in the Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS): basic TEDS and transducer type templates are used for transducer self-identification; and calibration templates are used for transducer self-calibration. The Transducer Block is also network-enabled by exposing its functionalities through a set of Web Services.
