    An overview of fluidic technology-a technology that provides an additional dimension to conventional microfluidic technology by adding sensing, computation and control is presented. Since the fluidic elements has very few or no moving parts the technology provides significant operational advantages in harsh environments. It also offers advantages in harsh environments by eliminating the need for interfaces.
