Infrared sensors are electronic devices that detect and measure infrared radiation emitted by objects within their field of view. Infrared radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths ranging from 700 nanometers (nm) to 1 millimeter (mm). Infrared sensors are designed to detect, measure, and analyze infrared radiation and are utilized in various industries and applications, including consumer electronics, automotive, aerospace & defense, healthcare, and industrial automation. Infrared cameras equipped with specialized sensors are used for thermal imaging in search and rescue operations, building inspection for energy efficiency assessments, monitoring electrical systems for overheating components, and surveillance. They enable the visualization of temperature differences across surfaces, pinpointing areas requiring attention or further investigation. Moreover, increasing demand for automation within various industries, growing awareness about energy conservation initiatives from governments worldwide, and enhanced safety standards have raised the adoption of infrared sensors. However, high costs associated with specific types of infrared sensors and privacy concerns significantly impede the usage of infrared sensors. To address these challenges, companies should focus on research areas such as developing low-cost manufacturing techniques to make infrared sensor technology more accessible and integrating AI & machine learning algorithms to enhance device performance through predictive analytics or pattern recognition features.
