From 1990 onward, there were numerous reports of “attack-of-angle” sensors (i.e., sensors that resemble weather vanes) being damaged by bird strikes, ground equipment and jet way collisions. In 2008, an A320 demonstration flight crashed on the French coast, killing all seven on board. Moisture inside two of the plane’s three angle-of-attack vanes froze. This relatively high incidence number makes it more than justifiable to question Boeing’s decision to enable the sensors on the Max model to become empowered beyond merely warning pilots of potential stalls and to instead automatically force a plane’s nose down.

This question of empowerment of where a sensor sits in terms of the decision tree becomes all the more jarring if the likelihood of autonomous vehicle proliferation is considered. When it comes to public safety, lessons learned from one application must quickly be imparted to all related use cases.

Sensors are instruments that identify environmental changes and then provide the corresponding output for events.They sense physical inputs such as light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure or any other object, and react by producing a display output or transmitting information for further processing in electronic form.

They identify main applications in flood and water level monitoring systems, environmental monitoring, traffic monitoring and control, artificial lighting, remote device monitoring and equipment fault diagnostics, and precision farming and animal tracking.

Sensors have become indispensable in many industries because they provide vital information about temperature, position, chemistry, pressure, force and load, and flow and level, which can affect products, processes and systems.As technological advances in electronic control systems increase sensor efficiency, users are calling for advances in sensor accuracy, reliability, response time, robustness, miniaturization and communication capability.

In order to keep track of parameters, smartphones consist of sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and temperature sensor, and provide a centralized system for automated monitoring.

Advances in micromachining have made it possible to produce micron-sized devices on a silicon wafer, an attractive process for large-volume applications using mass production processes. This technology is particularly important in the sensor market, as silicon has been shown to be a very good material for use in sensors.

In the near future, the manufacturing costs and power consumption of wireless sensors will decrease, and wireless sensors will be fully integrated into wireless networks, replacing hardwired configurations.A broad spectrum of wireless communications hardware and software is already available, and the communication industry is the largest consumer of this technology, primarily in mobile phones and base stations.

Fiber-optic sensors will also play roles in networks and communications.

Magnetic field sensors will play roles in magnetic storage media and customer terminals.

Photodetectors for local area networks (LANs) will also see growth in regional, municipal and longdistance network applications. Nanotechnology, which involves manipulating and harnessing chemical reactions and molecular processes of living cells in designs aimed at specific technological functions, will experience strong growth within the sensor market, especially for chemical detection.
