Sensors are used for detection of changes in the physical and/or logical relationship of one object to another(s) and/or the environment. Physical changes may include temperature, light, pressure, sound, and motion. Logical changes include the presence/absence of an electronically traceable entity, location, and/or activity. Within an Internet of Things (IoT) context, physical and logical changes are equally important.

Important sensor types in an Industrial IoT (IIoT) context include:

  • Acoustic
  • Ambient Light/Optical
  • Electric/Magnetic
  • Force/Pressure
  • Chemicals/Gas/Radiation
  • Humidity
  • Leakage/Level/Flow
  • Locked/Unlocked
  • Motion/Acceleration
  • Temperature

Through 2021, business investments in sensors will shift to Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Sports and Fitness, Transport and Cargo and Utility due to increased confidence in using IoT and sensors for various purposes including industry automation, tracking and measuring events on real time basis, and remotely controlling things.

This report assesses the overall sensor marketplace for IoT, evaluates leading vendors, identifies key IoT functionality in support of sensors, and forecasts the market for sensor adoption and revenue. The report covers three key areas within the sensor ecosystem:

  • Sensors: H/W and S/W designed and Developed to Suit IoT deployments
  • Protocols: Designed and developed to drive Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) in IoT
  • Sensor Data: Through Sensor Fusion / Multi-sensing / Soft Sensors

The reader of this report will better understand the role of sensors in the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as their relationship to Intelligent Endpoints.
