Advancements in Electronic Skin, Electronic Nose, Smart Sensors, Mobile Sensors, and Temperature Sensors

The new report by the Telecoms and Computing Market Reports has been published today. It provides updated in 2018 year analysis of telecoms and computing industries.

This issue of Sensor TechVision TOE covers recent developments in electronic skin, electronic nose, smart sensors, mobile sensors, and temperature sensors. A graphene-based electronic tattoo for healthcare applications, an artificial intelligence-based electronic nose for gas detection, smart sensors for building automation, mobile sensors for enhancing workplace productivity, and a novel temperature sensor for powerline monitoring have been profiled.

Sensor TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) captures global sensor-related innovations and developments on a weekly basis. Innovations are directed toward developing smart and intelligent sensors with functionalities beyond sensing. Research focus areas include: low power sensors (energy harvesting), industrial automation sensors (M2M, vision sensor), ubiquitous sensor (WSN, sensor fusion), smart sensors (wearables, quantified self), high sensitivity and smaller size (MEMS, nanosensors), and improved security (CBRNE, terahertz).

The need for low power, smaller, lighter sensors with enhanced performance attributes and minimal false alarms is driving innovations in the sensors space. The Sensors and Instrumentation cluster covers innovations pertaining to technologies such as wireless sensors and networks, energy harvesting, haptics and touch, MEMS and nanosensors, Terahertz, ubiquitous/smart sensors, CBRNE, quantified-self, sensor fusion, M2M communications, and drones.
