Smart Sensors: A New Technology to Be Introduced in the 21st Century

In recent years, the breakthrough in product/technology, the continuous deepening of application scenarios, the introduction of industry standards, and the increasing demand in the upstream and downstream markets have all contributed to the maturing of the sensor industry. Today, "without sensors, there is no modern science and technology" has become a recognized point of view of the world.

Perception is the leading technology of the Internet of Things. To ensure the stable operation of the Internet of Things, it is inseparable from the blessings of many perceptual technologies. One of the most critical technologies is the sensor.

As the “touch point” of the Internet of Things, sensors have a crucial role to play in today’s information age. At present, the sensor has penetrated into many industries and industries, such as industrial production, environmental protection, biological engineering, and medical testing, and is increasingly becoming intelligent, miniaturized, and digitized.

Multinational products/technologies have surfaced

Today, "there is no sensor without the modern science and technology" has become a recognized point of view of the world, countries will put the sensor to a higher position, no one in the development of the sensor industry do not want to fall behind.

Not long ago, the Chinese Academy of Sciences successfully developed the first black-phosphorus-based optical fiber chemical sensor to realize ultra-sensitive detection of heavy metal ions. It is reported that this is the first time that the research team has combined black scales and tilted fiber gratings, and a new type of ultra-sensitive chemical sensor was born.

Coincidentally, at the same time as the achievements of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in public research, the Korea Academy of Science and Technology has also made new achievements. According to the sources, during the development of a photodiode, it can sense from ultraviolet to near-infrared light, which is expected to be widely used in next-generation image sensor components.

In addition, new smart MOF photonic sensors have also been developed like Oxford University; Germany has developed a quantum sensor that can be used in micro-magnetic fields; Manchester University has developed a graphene sensor embedded in RFID that has been radically changed. Networking expectations.

Autopilot and fingerprinting are the main positions

With the further development and continuous breakthrough of sensor products and technologies, the market for sensor applications continues to deepen. Among them, the field of fingerprint identification and automatic driving has always been favored by the industry, and the robot and medical industries may become new fertile ground for the development of sensors in the future.

Specifically, in the field of automatic driving, since the space of the automobile body itself is limited, it is obviously difficult for common sensors to meet the new demands put forward by the time. At this time, the advantages of the smart sensor are highlighted. Compared with traditional sensors, smart sensors can not only achieve accurate data acquisition, but also can control the cost within a certain range. In addition, its automation capabilities and versatility also add a lot to smart sensors.

For example, Google Auto, in addition to sensors used in laser scanners, camera, radar, inertia and Other components / systems also use sensor technology. At present, the more common sensors used in self-driving cars include laser radar, image sensors, and millimeter-wave radar.

Autopilot is just one of the sensor application scenarios. Another big favored application market is fingerprint recognition. In the past two years, the development speed of smart phones is very rapid, and carrying fingerprint identification has become a must-have feature for public brand smartphones. According to statistics, in 2016, the fingerprint sensor was almost equal to 700 million, and the compound annual growth rate exceeded 133%. With the continuous development of intelligent products equipped with fingerprint recognition, such as smart phones, wearable devices, and intelligent door locks, the fingerprint sensor market will usher in brighter development prospects.

Many industry standards will be launched in 2018

Regulating the market order is an important guarantee for the healthy development of the industry, and the sensor market is no exception. In order to speed up the development of sensors on the basis of existing talent, market, technology and other basic resources, the introduction of favorable policies and the formulation of industry standards are essential.

In the past few years, the relevant policies regarding the development of the sensor industry are numerous. For example, the “12th Five-Year Plan for China Electronic Components” issued by China Electronic Components Association in 2011; and the “Twelve Five-Year Plan for Internet of Things” promulgated by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in 2012 also highlighted the development of miniature and smart sensors and wireless sensors. Network related work.

In 2015, the “Made in China 2025” strategy also mentioned again, pointing out the direction for the development of the sensor industry; and in July 2016, the “Thirteenth Five-Year National Science and Technology Innovation Plan” was issued, emphasizing the R&D and innovation of new sensors.

Entering 2018 in a blink of an eye, the implementation of a series of industry standards will continue to “assume escort” for the sensor industry. In 2017, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine and the National Standardization Administration approved 203 national standards and 10 national standards in foreign languages. It is reported that these new standards will be implemented in 2018, which involves a number of instrumentation standards, including smart sensors, smart recording meters, intelligent flow meters.

With the landing of a number of new national standards, the sensor industry will usher in a new era of growth. In addition to intelligent, digital and other development trends, standardization may become one of the labels for sensor development.

The breakthrough in product/technology, the continuous deepening of application scenarios, the introduction of industry standards, and the continuous increase in the demand of the upstream and downstream markets are all driving the maturing of the sensor industry. Perhaps this is what the smart sensor is called. The reason for the high-tech force.
