Sensors are used in ICT 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.

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
