Transducers

Jacob Dison

- Defined as a device that converts one form of energy to another.
- Examples: Motors, Speakers, Microphones, Antennas, Light Bulbs, Potentiometer, Gauges…
- Essentially Sensors and Actuators

- Two tapes, one for input and one for output.
- Converts a input into an output.
- Mealy and Moore machines.

- Invented by Edward F. Moore (1925 -2003)
- Wrote Gedanken-experiments on sequential machines (1956)
- Associates an output with each state of the machine.

- (K, Σ, O, δ, D,s, A,)
- K = States
- Σ = Input
- O = Output
- s = Initial State
- A = Final State
- δ = Transition Function
- D = Output Function

- Invented by George H. Mealy in 1955
- Associates outputs with transitions.

- (K, Σ, O, s, A, δ)
- K = States
- Σ = Input
- O = Output
- s = Initial State
- A = Final State
- δ = Transition Function

- Works in both directions
- Example: Soundex System
- Input: Kaylor
- Output: K460
- Kahler, Kaler, Kaylor, Keeler, Kellar, Kelleher, Keller, Kelliher, Kilroe, Kilroy, Koehler, Kohler, Koller, and Kyler.

- In addition to inputs and outputs, associates a weight, which can be a number of things including time, probability, distance… etc.

- Nondeterministic Finite State Transducer
- Machine is hidden, only outputs can be observed.
