With the advent of the Internet of Things, the importance of sensor technology to provide valid data is crucial for cyber-physical systems to work effectively. Though sensor technology is well established in industry, more robust and smarter sensors are needed in order to facilitate an IoT world.
With intelligent sensor technology comes an increase in supply chain visibility and accuracy, as well as productivity and quality improvements, and a decrease in downtime (long term), as well as reduced labour and energy costs, and other benefits.
