The Technology that Puts the ‘Smart’ in Smart Sensor

The dynamic duo that makes an effective smart sensor includes not only the sensor, but also its signal processing function. At the very least, an intelligent sensor is comprised of a sensor, a microprocessor, several additional components and even software elements to take input from the physical environment, process the data and execute instructions based on that signal.

This issue of Future Technology Magazine explores key components and technology that make sensor intelligence happen in cameras, gesture control, automotive, touch sensor technology and much more.
