speaking of the heavyweight helmsman who helps these devices play a role, sensors cannot be ignored. Touch sensors, image sensors and gas sensors are entering our life in an eye opening way

sensors in sports health care are one of the most popular research at present. On the 5th, often carry out the maintenance and protection of the tension machine. For wearable devices, the Honda Usuda comprehensive research institute has developed a three position motion sensor with a weight of only 2 grams. This type I or type II sample sensor is envisaged to be used to build a health enhancement system using big data. Through this sensor, the user's running distance, steps and posture can be collected, and the information can be sent to intelligent devices using Bluetooth

at the American consumer electronics show, taowellness showed a small terminal equipped with a pressure sensor. The terminal has a built-in motion sensor, which can be used as an activity meter. Through Bluetooth and intelligent connection, it can help users calculate the calories consumed

the research on human activities is also an important proposition for the automotive industry. Using a variety of sensors is expected to detect the driver's physiological state and body movements, so that the vehicle control system can recognize and assist the driver to have a better driving experience. My team and I are constantly learning

fingerprint recognition has become a magic weapon of traditional intelligence. Apple's iphone5s has a fingerprint sensor. Users can use this device without hesitation to unlock the device without typing a password. They can even use this fingerprint sensor called touchid to authorize purchases in Apple stores. HTC has also launched large screen intelligence with integrated fingerprint sensors

small devices also have big ways to play

with people's attention to sensors soaring, a variety of novel derivative technologies are also emerging, and various industry cooperation has occurred. At the end of January this year, Murata production Institute of Japan announced that it had developed a new type of air pressure sensor by using the capacitive MEMS technology of Murata electronics, a Finnish company previously acquired. It is planned to use this technology in navigation systems and human activity monitoring systems through mobile devices

Japanese scientists have also developed fuel cells designed to use electronic insects to form wireless sensor networks. Last year, Japan's Radio Industry demonstrated a biosensor using a quartz crystal oscillator, which can detect virus infection in only 10 minutes

last September, Ti released an inductive digital converter that can use coils and springs as inductive sensors, which can be used in a wide range of fields such as home appliances, automotive equipment, industrial equipment and medical devices

robots that play an important role in production activities also need this small electronic device. Recently, American scientists have developed electronic skin for robots with hundreds of sensors. With the help of the information collected by the skin sensor, the robot can use the so-called touch to identify the surrounding situation and find the best activity route

in addition, sensors are also an indispensable part of building a smart city. With the help of sensors, the elevator will not start until someone takes it, which helps save energy. The small black box on the traffic light over there can send a signal to the receiver in the hands of the nearby blind people to remind them that they are approaching the intersection

rapid expansion of market scale

Smart Life connects various items in life, and the growth of IOT has become an indisputable fact. According to IDC's prediction, the scale of the global IOT market will increase from $5.4 trillion in 2013 to $7.3 trillion in 2017. The rise of a series of new lifestyles, such as smart homes and wearable devices, has brought golden opportunities for the sensor industry chain. Including MEMS sensors, as the core of upstream technology in the industrial chain, MEMS sensor systems originally used in automobiles and intelligence have begun to enter the field of wearable devices

according to the data of researchhandmarkets, the global market value of sensors for consumer electronics was US $15.27 billion in 2013, and will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 9.7%, reaching US $29.25 billion in 2020

the spread of such hot spots has footprints all over the world. In China, Ma Kai, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and vice premier of the State Council, pointed out at the national IOT work videoconference just concluded this week that we should strive to break through a number of core key technologies such as core chips and smart sensors in accordance with the principles of demand traction, key leaps, supporting development and leading the future

more and more technology giants have noticed the business opportunities. Finger printcards, a European fingerprint technology company, has developed a touch fingerprint sensor. Its CEO John karstrom once said that at least seven or eight manufacturers will launch smart machines with touch sensors in 2014. The company plans to reach cooperation agreements with most manufacturers

according to the data of Grandview, the global shipment of image sensors is expected to reach 3billion by 2020, with a compound annual growth rate of 6.7% from 2014 to 2020. The value of this global market will reach 12billion US dollars in 2020, and the Asia Pacific region will become the fastest growing region. According to the research of marketsandmarkets, the market value of medical image sensors will be US $10.75 billion by 2018, with an average annual compound growth rate of 3.84%. The shipment volume in 2013 was 1.6 billion and will reach 3billion by 2018

as a senior person who founded seven sensor related risk enterprises, yanushbrizek, vice president of MEMS and sensor solutions Department of Fairchild Semiconductor Company, is called the father of sensors by many people. Last year, he and albertpisano, who led the sensor network pioneer Berkeley sensor and actuator center in the United States and is now dean of the University of California San Diego School of technology, decided to launch this idea

according to their plan, equipment and system related enterprises around the world will establish a society that uses 1trillion sensors every year. This is equivalent to the world's average annual consumption of 150 sensors per person, which is about 100 times the current demand. They envision that now things that have nothing to do with sensors can be equipped with sensors to realize a world in which everything can be connected with ICT, such as adding sensors that can dissolve automatically to tablets

at the beginning of this idea, there were 3.5 billion sensors in the world, while in 2007, this number was only 10million

according to Cisco data, by 2020, the number of goods connected to the Internet is expected to reach 50billion, accounting for 2.7% of global goods. The connection cost will decline at a compound annual growth rate of 25% from 2012 to 2020

this is one of the important reasons for yanushbrizek to carry out this plan. He said that this may be the largest business in the history of electronic devices

improved structural durability

brisek pointed out that in addition to IOT, there are many aspects that boost the demand for sensors, including digital health, redefining the medical industry, the earth's central nervous system, trying to predict global environmental pollution, earthquakes, tsunamis, weather forecasts and oil exploration. In addition, many companies are trying to measure human emotions, feelings and emotions

for example, one of the technologies being developed now is that you can read your mood by looking at your face. Many companies are studying the use of various types of sensors to extract emotions from your body and nervous system, such as optical image processing, extracting information from sound, or extracting information from your nervous system

Japanese media have quoted Professor Tadao Kuroda of the Department of electronic engineering of Keio University as saying that people will first usher in the era of big data and small sensors for qualitative development. Following the era of engineering workstation, PC and, this era will bring a qualitative leap to semiconductors, and the time of its arrival may be 2015

it is reported that one of the latest trends in wearable products is to integrate data collection and sensors internally, and unload algorithms with a large number of computing into the cloud or cluster, using the super power of cloud computing to achieve intelligence. The reasons for the rapid development of sensors include that the use of electronic components led by sensors tends to be intelligent and functional, the potential demand for sensors in the field of social infrastructure is rising, and the information and communication technology industry wants to use more digital data
