A sensor has a very crucial impact on the industry. It is only likely to see steady growth in the coming future. With advanced technologies like the Internet of Things, the sensors become more robust and the benefits for a user are not limited to just a few.
Sensor systems are at least as important in enabling new use cases of existing product types, improved user experiences, and even wholly new device types.
With the breakthrough of the new implementations of sensor technology, it has been possible to place a heart monitor in a wristband that a person can wear 24/7, to enable color analysis 60X more sensitive than the human eye in a small, handheld instrument, or to provide ambient noise cancellation in a device so tiny that it fits in the ear.
The next step? Shaping the world with sensor solutions, by creating new core sensing technologies, developing algorithms that make sense of sensor data, and building application-ready devices that OEMs can implement easily in end products.
Today’s digital transformation is only just beginning—and sensors will be at the heart of the coming waves of change.
To lay down a few of the trends that will be prominent in the coming years are as follows:
1) Sensors for Efficient Healthcare:
It will be a time for micro-sensors which while implanted in patients, tracks the healing process for internal injuries, enables health care professionals to take remedial action based on continual data from the system. Healthcare sector growing at a rapid rate is predicted to be a sector where innovative and advanced sensors will be utilized.
2) IoT Based Sensors become Omnipresent
IoT is already one of the major trends in 2018 and in the coming years, IoT based sensors are going to dominate the sectors across the industry. The sensors will be connected, predictive in nature and will enable a wider range of situations and events to be detected. New algorithms will emerge to deduce more information from current sensor technologies.
3) Paper-based Sensors take over
Paper-based sensors are a new alternative technology for fabricating simple, low-cost, portable and disposable analytical devices for many application areas including clinical diagnosis, food quality control, and environmental monitoring. Although paper-based sensors are very promising, they still suffer from certain limitations such as accuracy and sensitivity. However, it is anticipated that in the future, with advances in fabrication and analytical techniques, that there will be more new and innovative developments in paper-based sensors.
4) Automotive Sector Opts for ADAS
The technological advancements in the automotive sector coupled with early adoption have catapulted the market on an upward trajectory. This trend is likely to perpetuate in the foreseeable future.
The Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Market is completely dependent on the automotive industry. Thus the increasing or decreasing demand of the automotive industry directly has an impact on the ADAS market.
