Small size, low power consumption, and networking capabilities of sensors will stimulate expansion potential across sectors.
According to Frost & Sullivan’s latest review of new sensor technologies for environmental monitoring, the environment is shielded from hazardous viruses and poisons by sophisticated and diverse sensing and monitoring systems. Green sensors analyse the chemical make-up of the soil, the quality of the water, and the atmosphere. The major drivers of development prospects across industries will be sensors’ tiny size, low power, signal processing, and communications capabilities.
To benefit from cutting-edge sensor technologies:
- If their devices have long-range, low-power capabilities, hotspot users can monitor their surroundings and take preventative action based on gathered data.
- The employment of sophisticated environmental detection systems in a range of applications should be a collaborative effort between universities, research facilities, and sensor makers.
- Participants in the IoT industry should make use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, cloud computing, and big data to offer environmentally friendly solutions for a safer and more satisfying existence.
The most recent addition to Frost & Sullivan’s TechVision research and analyses, which are made available through the Frost & Sullivan Leadership Council and aid organisations in identifying ongoing growth opportunities to succeed in an uncertain future, is Emerging Sensor Technologies for Environmental Monitoring and Their Global Growth Opportunities.
“Technology convergence is playing an important role in ensuring that sensors benefit humans,” said Varun Babu, TechVision Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Data analytics, cloud platforms, and other advanced machine learning (ML) retrieve data from the green Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled environmental sensors and provide actionable insights.”
Babu added: “Smart cities are an emerging concept leveraging the application of sensors, primarily to monitor air and water conditions in urban areas to ensure sustainability for the livelihood of residents. Further, developing policies and guidelines prioritizing environmental sustainability and control while stepping up efforts to reduce carbon emissions is essential.”
