This issue of Sensor TechVision TOE profiles key innovations in sweat-based glucose sensing, mult-gas sensor chips. optical nano torque sensing, magnetic angular position sensors, and infrared sensors that remain dormant until activated by the presence of specific IR wavelengths from a target. 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: Glucose sensors, sensor patches, sweat sensors, multi-gas sensing, nanosensors, torque sensors, optical sensors, magnetic sensors, angular position sensors, infrared sensors
