Sensors are the essential eyes and ears for monitoring and controlling a range of systems and applications. New enhancements in sensors and imaging technology are transforming the way that sensors are used, and driving increased adoption of advanced sensors in:

  • Medical diagnostics
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Security
  • Offshore renewable energy

These advancements include wireless sensors, miniaturised lower-power sensors with convenient form factors and sensors with greater built-in intelligence.
