This issue of Sensor TechVision TOE identifies and clarifies innovations in MEMS-based micro speakers and piezoelectric actuators; stretchable, self-powered sensors; thermal imaging traffic sensors; magnetosenstive electronic skins; and hyperspectral imaging. 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: MEMS, micro speakers, piezoelectric actuators, stretch sensors, self-powered sensors, energy harvesting, thermal imaging sensors, infrared cameras, traffic sensors, microbolometers, spin valves, GMR sensors, magnetic sensors, electronic skin, hyperspectral imaging
