Optical position sensors are used to measure the position of a light or an object in one dimension, two dimensions or multiple axes as per the user’s requirement. Furthermore, the market is expected to grow due to ongoing technological innovation which is leading to the development of smaller and efficient chipsets and modules with added functions.
The market for optical position sensors in semiconductor modules and chips is growing rapidly during the forecast period. The changing government laws in Europe and North America is ensuring the need for enhanced safety in automobiles. The optical position sensors are being actively used to detect the vehicle position and act as a parking assistance. In addition, these sensors are also being used to detect the position of the driver in case of an accident and release the air bags accordingly. Hence the rise in vehicle safety is driving the market for optical position sensors in semiconductor chips and modules market. Furthermore, the global demand for smart mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet is increasing rapidly. The highly competitive environment in the smart mobile devices market is ensuring the launch of technological advanced devices at affordable prices. The optical position sensors are being used to improve the power management of these devices by detecting the external brightness and adjusting the backlight of the devices accordingly. In addition, the optical position sensors are also used for gesture detection of the smart phone by integrating features such as pinch to zoom and also other features which enables the users to control the smart devices without touching the screen physically.
However, there are no standard sets of rules to determine the performance of position sensors at present. The sensors need to be compact, high-speed and immune to environmental variation. In addition, the optical position sensors need to detect position down to atomic scales for its accuracy. Moreover, the optical position sensors are built to detect positions in a specific bandwidth.
In future, the emerging concept of virtual reality is expected to be applied for training. Experiments are being conducted to for creating a virtual reality tool for training humans. In order to create the tool, optical position sensors will be used for sensing and actuating touch. Perception and manipulation of synthetic materials are important in order to be used for medical training and molecular modeling among others.
