The rising demand for automation, security and comfort leads to a permanently increasingneeds for smart sensors. Recent technological trends, such as Internet of Thing (IoT) and Industry 4,0, lead to more challenging requirements for smart sensors.
Smart sensors achieve their functionality through an interlocked interaction of sensor structure, manufacturing technology and signal processing and profit therefore from recent developments in these fields. The technological development in the field of micro and nano technology provides promising future solutions for smart sensors.
The aim of this session is to highlight smart sensors and their interaction with technologies and applications fields.
