5 Technologies To Watch: Sensors Are the New Plastics
Forget about plastics. There's an even greater future for sensors in the world of consumer electronics.
Most of CEA's newly released "Five Technology Trends to Watch" - The Internet of Things, Consumer Digital Health Care, Driverless Cars, Robots, and the Curators of New Video - in some way involve the use of sensors to access, collect, monitor, move and aggregate the vast amount of data generated by digital devices. Many of the solutions are emerging, but sensor technology is fully developed and waiting in the wings to be added to a host of categories.
The Internet of Things - the continuous digitization and IP-enablement of consumer and commercial devices - is a good starting point to gauge the role sensors play in today's connected world, said panelists who gathered at CEA's Industry Forum in Los Angeles Monday to discuss how the technologies will impact consumers, retailers and manufacturers.
