While the use of sensor technology has long affected how industrial organizations, manufacturers, and utilities operate, the addition of internet of things (IoT) to sensors has expanded their impact and applications, bringing more connectivity and analytics to business processes than ever before. Today, smart sensors benefit businesses in several ways. For one, they provide greater visibility into existing operations and workflows, identifying items, locating them, and determining their environmental conditions. For example, smart sensors in industrial IoT environments help keep track of temperature and humidity, can log data for historical records and quality management, and also be used as triggers for alarms in plants or warehouses.
From a healthcare perspective, we are at the beginning of what is called a ‘digital health revolution,’ which is the unique convergence of health and technology, and sensors are leading the way. Today a large number of medical facilities are using passive sensors to continually monitor each patient’s vital signs and store data or share it wirelessly (via wearables) with healthcare professionals. There are also a handful of sensor-based technologies that are being developed to make it easier for doctors and patients to diagnose breast cancer, sub-dermal issues, and even enlarged kidneys.
As a multitude of these applications is set to nurture the growth of sensor technology, APAC CIO Outlook has compiled a list of top 10 sensor technology solution providers to guide organizational leaders in harnessing the power of the technology to tackle today’s business challenges, reduce workload, and increase efficiencies.
Bringing you a package of exciting and happening revelations in the sensor tech, our cover story, featuring Omron Corporation, a sensor technology solution provider that serves the industrial automation needs for factories and organizations across the world. Another featured company is Acare technology, who steps up to provide sleeping therapy and diagnostic equipment paired with sensor technology creating a butterfly effect. Alongside, companies like ACEINNA and AMS are constantly stepping up the game with their leading-edge sensor solutions for developing innovative inertial measurement units and sensor-supported wearables, respectively. To further substantiate the sensor technology’s transformation, CIOs working in the sensor realm have also penned down their insights on the use of the technology in flexible batteries to unleash the power of smart wearables.
