Sensors can be defined as devices that detect events or changes in the environment.They provide multiple functions including detecting the event and transmitting a signal about the event to other sensors, IT systems or network elements.

Many sensor configurations include actuators that can control or trigger an event. The data they collect can also be stored and recorded to be analyzed. sensor.

Two key characteristics that define IoT sensors are:
- The ability to connect to an ever-expanding network of computers and to aggregate the outputs of their detection data.
- The ability to simply access a sensor for data recording or event purposes from virtually anywhere.

These two characteristics are rapidly broadening the application of sensors from local and contextual applications to systems and network-wide functions.New capabilities are coming to the fore at a time when sensors already have greatly expanded their capabilities.

From traditional purposes such as temperature, pressure or flow measurement, sensors are now embedded in attitude and heading reference systems (for aircraft), potential voltage measurement or force-sensing resistors, and many other technical and everyday applications in nearly every industry.

IoT sensors can take any of these applications and greatly expand their impact.For example, drivers of select Ford vehicles can obtain an inventory of the sensor outputs of all the dashboard displays at the press of a button.

Homeowners and building managers can control the lighting, heat and security parameters of their environments through a single remote dashboard aggregating the functions of multiple sensors stationed across a building and its numerous electrical and mechanical systems. Civil engineers can detect the potential faults in a bridge by aggregating the stress-detection data from thousands of accelerometers designed to aggregate the frequency and degree of vibrations on the bridge’s superstructure.

Sensors can be embedded in nearly any environment, including personal devices for personal use.This report categorizes all manner of IoT sensors, whether they are in infrastructure, smart devices or technical applications.

Given these parameters, there may be as many as REDACTED sensors per person over the next 10 years—more than one trillion sensors.

The only limitation in this explosive growth, besides manufacturing capacity, is the need to support these sensors with sufficient computing power to make them IoT-capable.For example, a typical data rate of 20 petabytes generated by one million sensors operating 24 hours a day requires 50 hard disks running in parallel.

When the computing network and distributed data centers required to capture and manage that data flow are considered, the chief limitation on IoT sensors is not related to the sensors themselves but rather to how efficiently the data that they produce can be captured and utilized.
