Years ago, the extent of how far sensory technology has come was largely more of a concept than the reality it is today. Looking back, it’s astounding to see how far along we as people and our various industries have come without sensory technology. With their algorithms, data collection, and technological improvements in recent years, smart sensors are slowly becoming a regular facet of workforce technology in dozens of industries, and are transforming how various professions conduct their routine tasks, along with improving the overall quality and efficiency of workplace production.
As we all know, smart sensors are playing a big part in the development of technologies and layouts of smart cities and homes, machine and vehicle-to-vehicle communication, along with utility management. What most people don’t realize is the industries mentioned (where smart sensors have thrived), only scratch the surface of how capable this technology truly is of being utilized in modern industries, and the different roles smart sensors play.
The infographic below contains a simple display of a dozen different industries where smart sensors play a significant role in data collection, maintenance safety, along with facilitating both basic and complex functions pertaining to that specific line of work.
