In the field of traditional electronics, sensorics and the development of devices sensitive to different variables such as temperature, moisture or pressure, are very relevant and an interesting field of work. Sensors are especially important in the industrial sector, since its implementation is useful both for equipment manufacturing, for measuring variables and monitoring systems. Nevertheless, the industrial sector is not the only one demanding sensors. Sensors are also needed in the medical industry to measure glucose, cholesterol, etc. and in the electronics industry to develop new wearables for measuring the heart rate, the body heat, etc.
According to the last market research published by Technavio, the global industrial wireless sensors market is foreseen to grow US$3.48 billion by 2021, with a year-on-year growth rate of over 11% during the forecast period.
Industrial wireless sensors can be classified according to products into flow sensors, temperature sensors, pressur
