‘Mike Might Know — understanding sensor linearity and accuracy’ - .PDF file.

Typical sensors that have an intrinsically linear output include pressure transducers and loadcells. However, many commonly used sensors exhibit very non-linear performance, leading to the conclusion that they are also not accurate. In truth, as this article from Sherborne Sensors explains, a sensor can be highly accurate but also have a totally non-linear output function, and sensors with very linear outputs can be highly inaccurate.
