Published: 12 Oct 2018

This issue of Sensor TechVision TOE profiles advancements in MEMS-based inertial measurement units, moisture measurement, torque sensing, load cells, and self-powered implantable biosensors. 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: Inertial measurement unit, MEMS inertial sensors, micro-electromechanical system, moisture sensing, moisture balance, load cells, self-powered biosensors, implantable sensors, glucose sensing, diabetes testing
