Try as you wish, you cannot avoid them in your day to day life and within industry they are ever present. Almost everything can be sensed these days, presence, vibration, sound, light, movement, temperature, humidity, velocity and even colour. Sensors also allow us to interact with technology in ways we never thought possible, touch sensors allow us to work alongside bench robots in a safe and controlled manor, with a multitude of application possibilities sensors really are industrial solution providers.
This hub is the place to post application information, product solutions and key insight around sensing technologies. Check back for regular updates.
