Cognex: The Vision Sensor Leaders

Top 10 Sensor Technology Solution Companies - 2020

Sensors are proliferating across countless applications as we move to an increasingly connected world. Many of those applications require multiple sensors in a small footprint with no degradation of performance—and often with very low power requirements.

With so many applications playing in the IoT space, the shift to digital is required for intelligent sensors that not only capture sensing data, but also interpret that data for a variety of applications. Sensor fusion represents the third major trend. As with the trend towards digitization, multi-sensor integration is directly related to IoT proliferation and the expectation that everything is connected. The need to capture multiple types of measurement in extremely small packages is pushing the development of multi-sensing elements.

Recent advances of sensor technologies have been powered by high-speed and low-cost electronic circuits, novel signal processing methods, and advanced manufacturing technologies. The synergetic interaction of new developments in these fields provides promising technical solutions increasing the quality, reliability, and economic efficiency of technical products.

Choosing the right scalable smart sensor system for your business is not an easy decision and it can be difficult to know where to start when navigating the array of options available. The benefits of getting the right sensor technology vendor are huge—from financial efficiencies to a reduced impact on the environment, and even an increase in staff wellbeing— but making the wrong decision can be costly, hitting your reputation as well as your profits.

Any solution you install needs to be future proof so it’s important to ensure the manufacturer or supplier you use can adapt quickly to meet new demand and is used to processing high volumes.

We present to you, “Top 10 Sensor Technology Solution Providers - 2020.”
