A few of the other transformative changes involving sensors include:
- Increasing adoption of 3D sensors and their integration into monitoring systems;
- Silicon photonics: silicon chips with integrated optics and electronics;
- Biosensors: rapid detection devices to address gaps in healthcare and food safety;
- Energy harvesters: micro-energy harvesting systems that generate electrical energy from solar, vibration and thermal energy;
- Intelligent vehicles: fully automated and driverless;
- Bulk acoustic wave and surface acoustic wave: will enable highly economical industrial and consumer applications;
- Infrastructure and sensor towers: completely automate building monitoring through new integrated sensor systems.
"Wireless sensor networks are the future of connectivity," said Thusu. "Sensor technology will continue to advance in terms of natural user interface, ubiquitous computing, and sensory tracking. By 2025, sensors will not only be intelligent and prognostic, but also autonomous, self-healing and failsafe, paving the way for Industrial IoT (IIoT)."
