This issue of Sensor TechVision TOE highlights advancements in laser triangulation-based sensors, blood oxygen assessment, time of flight imaging for self-driving vehicles, a long-range backscatter system for transmitting sensor data, and distributed fiber optic sensing. 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: Laser triangulation, blood oxygen saturation, blood oxygenation, hypoxia, hyperoxia, time of flight imaging, self driving cars, backscatter, radio signals, flexible electronics, distributed sensing, fiber optic sensors
