The importance of the Internet of Things (IoT) in today’s device development landscape is undeniable. VDC Research, together with Sensors Magazine, launched a global study exploring the IoT phenomenon and its influence on the sensing technologies market. VDC assessed the current and expected communication and connectivity requirements of sensing-equipped devices and systems, as well as the degree to which future development projects would be impacted by the IoT and its related requirements.
This report examines the role of the IoT in the broader sensing technologies market. It offers extensive feedback from the engineering community regarding its current and expected use of IoT-related sensing technologies. Key questions addressed include:
- Which types of wired, optical and/or wireless support are included within sensing-enabled devices or systems under development?
- What are the most important advantages to IoT connectivity in sensing-enabled devices or systems?
- Which communities have the greatest influence on the development of the IoT opportunities within sensing-enabled devices or systems?
- How will the IoT affect the number and type of sensing technologies integrated within sensing-enabled devices or systems?
