Nine Pronged Technology Evaluation --Fusion of Intelligent Sensors

Sensing and controlling the environment has become an important phenomenon and has garnered considerably increased attention in a wide range of sectors and applications, such as automotive, building automation, healthcare, location, navigation and tracking. Sensor fusion technology encompasses the ability to bring together information from different types of sensors into a single information platform and generate an intelligent response that would lead to coordinated action among devices to satisfy user and system needs. The research service offers insights on breakthroughs in sensor fusion from applications perspective.

Research Outline

Sensor fusion technology encompasses the capability to bring together information from different types of sensing entities into a single information platform that generates intelligence. As a result of such an approach, the generated system/surrounding intelligence is better than intelligence gathered by individual sensors. This technology has been around for a while now, with advances observed rapidly in conjunction with the developments in the sensors industry. With new sensing capabilities being rolled out on a regular basis and the increasing emergence of combo sensors, innovative applications are expected to appear in the near- to medium-term. Sensor fusion has been widely adopted for various application verticals, such as military and defense, and will continue to be the same in the future as well.

This research service offers insights primarily on sensor fusion from nine different aspects. It focuses mainly on innovative and emerging application areas of sensor fusion.

The 9 dimensions of the studies can be listed as:
•Year of Impact
•Market Potential
•Global Footprint
•IP Activity
•Funding
•Breadth of Industries
•Impact on Megatrend
•Potential Points of Convergence
•Size of Innovation Ecosystem
