The European Smart Sensor Market Expected To Hit $2,408.2 million by 2018

Smart sensors are among those sensors which come with smart concept. It enables the sensor to stand alone with the processing power normally associated with much larger data acquisition systems. It allows measurement, storage and processing of raw data on multiple channels within a compact, rugged and technically advanced recording unit. Smart sensors also have the ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions. A Smart sensor utilizes multiple sensing technologies and processing techniques together in a package which is tailored for various environments. It can transmit more information to the users than the simple and traditional sensors.

Europe is one of the most technologically advanced application market, it is mainly focusing on interdisciplinary research to produce reliable and intelligent sensors that can be used in various applications. Due to relatively large size of aerospace & defense and automotive application, Europe holds a leadership position in smart sensor market.
