From inertial celestial navigation solutions in mobile phones and smart wearable solutions for health monitoring to autonomous driving, the demand for sensors has been growing at a rapid pace.

Smart sensors are innovative platforms with involved technologies such as storage, microprocessors, connectivity, and diagnostics tools that help transform conventional feedback signals into true digital insights. These sensors provide valuable and timely data underpinnings to power analytical insights that can, in turn, drive improvements in performance, cost, and customer experience. Rising penetration and utilization of the Internet of Things (IoT), along with growing automation in vehicles and smart wearables, are some of the major factors expected to boost the market for smart sensors worldwide.

Smart sensor computing capabilities have strengthened substantially over a period of time. This, thereby, aids in data processing and analysis at or near the source and reduces the amount of data that is transmitted between the device and the platform. In addition, the emergence of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology has permitted high functioning and the introduction of compact smart sensors by effectively incorporating microelectronic functions in minimal space.

Smart sensors are capable of automatically detecting faults during a particular operation and actively helping troubleshoot problems that may arise in the near future. Smart sensors represent a remarkable advancement over conventional sensors, as they empower automatically generated information about the environment with a fundamentally minimal mistake rate.
