What is infrared sensor?

An infrared sensor is an electronic instrument which is used to sense certain characteristics of its surroundings by either emitting and/or detecting infrared radiation. Infrared sensors are also capable of measuring the heat being emitted by an object and detecting motion. Infrared sensors are components which can detect and produce light in the IR wavelength range. IR sensors have IR light source, medium, optical components and the IR detector. The medium can be a vacuum in case of thermal imaging systems or can be atmosphere

What are the major applications for Infrared sensor?

Infrared sensors have various end use applications which include night vision systems, temperature control, climate control, pedestrian detection, fall detection, pressure monitor, computers, gaming devices, cellphones, LIDAR, home appliances, blood glucose monitor, toys, optical power monitors, security devices, home appliances, gas & fire detection systems, spectrometers, thermal imaging etc. infrared sensors are also used in machine vision based products for monitoring assembly line and other automation purposes.

Market Research and Market Trends of Infrared sensor
