This issue of Sensor TechVision TOE profiles advancements in leaf monitoring sensors, monitoring of critical equipment, fiber optic distributed acoustic sensors, LiDAR systems for wind speed measurement, and electronic nose sensors that use metal oxide semiconductor nanowires. Sensor TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) captures global sensor-related innovations and developments on a weekly 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. Keywords: Leaf sensors, plant management, crop management, thickness sensors, electrical capacitance, equipment monitoring, fiber optic sensors, distributed acoustic sensors, electronic nose, LiDAR sensors, odor sensors, metal oxide semiconductor sensors, nanowires, wind speed, oil pipelines, food quality, environmental monitoring, security
