This issue of Sensor TechVision TOE profiles advancements and innovations in sensors for environmental monitoring and indoor air quality sensing, including sensors for particulate monitoring, indoor air quality sensor platforms, metal oxide gas (e.g., VOC) sensors, and networked sensors. 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: Environmental monitoring, indoor air quality sensors, sensor platforms, cloud, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, volatile organic compounds, metal oxide gas sensors
