Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/15/2014 -- Smart / Intelligent Sensor Market by Type (Flow Sensor, Dissolved Oxygen Sensor, Temperature Sensor, Pressure Sensor, Touch Sensor), Technology (MEMS, CMOS), Application (Aerospace, Automotive, Industrial, Building Automation), & by Geography - Forecasts & Analysis to 2013 - 2020
The term smart sensor was coined in the mid-1980s, and since then several devices such as accelerometer, optical sensor, infrared detector, integrated multisensor and so on are called as smart sensors. The intelligence required by such devices is available from microcontroller unit (MCU), digital signal processor (DSP), and Application-Specific ntegrated circuit (ASIC) technologies developed by several semiconductor manufacturers. The smart sensor is an analog or digital transducer or actuator combined with a processing unit and a communication interface. Some of the functions of smart sensors are information processing, communications, validation, integration, data fusion, and so on. Applications of smart sensors include industrial automation, aerospace and defense, building automation, biomedical, automotive, and consumer electronics. Some of the advantages of smart sensors are lower cost, self indication, auto correction, auto display, ease of use, high reliability, compactness, and so on.
