“Survey of Noteworthy Next-Generation Sensor R&D and Commercial Implications”
Sensors are used in almost any type of electronics-based equipment, device and instrument used in any area where measuring needs are important. As technology advances make sensors easier to manufacture in quantity and easier to integrate into smaller devices, it's possible to bring sensing capabilities to many more products in the future. In fact, sensors may be limited only by the imagination of how they can be deployed.
This report on the business/commercial implications behind sensors highlights a selection of more than 70 developers in the U.S. and other locationsat commercial companies, venture start-ups and universitiesand their innovations that are being commercialized, nearing commercialization or in the proof-of-concept stage, but may one day move from laboratory research into production application.
The scope of next-generation sensor R&D is very broad, covering pressure sensors, extreme temperature sensors, MEMS accelerometers and multi-axis sensors, safety sensors, millimeter-wave radar sensors, tactile sensors, body worn and in vivo sensors, wireless sensors, among others. This overview report reveals important themes that tell us to prepare for a future where:
- Sensing devices have better measurement precision and energy efficiency.
- Sensors do double duty as energy scavengers.
- Sensors push the boundary from microscale to nanoscale dimensions.
- Flexible and conformal substrates allow the design of new wearable sensors, medically implanted sensors and integrated sensing devices.
- New generation energy storage devices, based on 3D architectures, MEMS and nanomaterials, help power future sensors.
- Improved integration technologies put multiple sensors in one package.
- Advanced localization, navigation, materials science and sensor fusion create more autonomous and intelligent sensor systems.
- Sensor nodes more easily use multiple wireless systems, with embedded connectivity for cellular to body area networks (or with reconfigurable MEMS RF in the future).
- Sensor data and operations and M2M services are accessible via the internet (cloud).
Next-generation sensors with these advanced capabilities and made of advanced materials will underpin common high-volume consumer products and higher-performance, higher-value automotive and medical products. In the next decade, any one of many possible applications, as explored through examples in this report, may come to fruition.
This report explains why:
- Sensors are increasingly found in everything from blood pressure monitors to the clothes you wearand future sensors may be in the prescription drugs you take and even your contact lenses or hip replacement implant.
- Nano-biosensors are ready to ignite possibilities for faster, more accurate bedside assays for diagnosing cancer and other diseases and, ultimately, implantable organ sensors.
- Sensor-directed robots may help better manage healthcare and one day remotely guide doctors during even more complex surgeries.
- Advanced automotive-grade MEMS and radar sensors make driving in our cars safer.
- Subsurface sensors may make possible the next big energy discovery in underground wells.
