Covers Wireless Implants for Monitoring Oxygen Levels, an Injectable Biosensor for Early Detection of COVID-19 Symptoms, and More
The Sensor Technology Opportunity Engine issue for April 2021 covers wireless implants for monitoring oxygen levels, sensors for hazardous smoke detection, arsenic content detection in water, hydrogen sensors, a multibeam scanner-based LiDAR solution, a wearable hologram-based gas sensor for hazardous gas detection, an injectable biosensor for early detection of COVID-19 symptoms, and a high resolution global shutter CMOS image sensor for smart transportation.
Sensor Technology Opportunity Engine (TOE) captures global sensor-related innovations and developments on a monthly basis. Innovations are directed toward developing smart and intelligent sensors with functionalities beyond sensing. Research focus areas include: low power sensors (energy harvesting), industrial automation sensors (M2M, vision sensor), ubiquitous sensor (WSN, sensor fusion), smart sensors (wearables, quantified self), high sensitivity and smaller size (MEMS, nanosensors), and improved security (CBRNE, terahertz). The need for low power, smaller, lighter sensors with enhanced performance attributes and minimal false alarms is driving innovations in the sensors space.
The Sensors and Instrumentation cluster covers innovations pertaining to technologies such as wireless sensors and networks, energy harvesting, haptics and touch, MEMS and nanosensors, Terahertz, ubiquitous/smart sensors, CBRNE, quantified-self, sensor fusion, M2M communications, and drones.
