Sensor technology is rapidly evolving as developers look to embed information in more and more products. Novel form factors, sensitivity, specificity, and robustness are key traits that can differentiate tomorrow’s sensor technology from today’s incumbents. From materials to devices, the push to create an Internet of Things, and bring intelligence to systems is driving innovation in sensors. The Lux Research Sensors service works with our clients to track sensor innovation and help them build strategy around it.
