Embedded Sensors and Intelligence on the New Edge
Much of what comes together in the Internet of Things depends on the first node in the network, which is most often a sensor. Transformational Industry 4.0 analytics and automation require even better input, which has kept vendors busy trying to bring smarter embedded sensors to market.
This is among the drivers leading Allied Market Research projecting the global IoT sensor industry will grow from $12.37 billion to $141.8 billion by 2030, achieving a CAGR of 28% over that period.
As in the past, today’s embedded sensors must measure temperature, humidity, pressure, proximity and a wide assortment of other phenomena. Miniature accelerometers, magnetometers and other devices have come to form complex sensor fusions that combine disparate types of sources.
