The Smart sensor contains a sensing element, analog interface circuit, an analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and a bus interface, all in one platform. Smart sensors have the capabilities such as self-calibration and self-diagnosis, the ability to use signal processing, and multi-sensing capabilities. In current scenario, the Americas are the leader in the Smart sensor market. The North American market is more dominated currently wherein; the U.S. constitutes of 44%, Canada 31% and Mexico 25%. APAC is expected to overtakethe U.S. and change this situation for smart sensor market because APAC is considered as a center for supplying consumer electronics products and consumer electronics embedded with smart sensors is expected to penetrate into the market.

The Biomedical and Industrial Automation Segment is Witnessing High Demand of Smart Sensors. In biomedical applications, smart sensors are used for smart implants like orthopaedic implants instrumented with strain gauges, knee arthroplasty, and retina implant system using image sensors.So, smart sensors are used strongly in health care, as smart implantable devices. They are also used for voltammetric measurements of glucose or oxygen. Smart sensors are also used as cancer detectors, organ monitors, general health monitors. In industrial automation, the smart sensor reduces the systems and infrastructure costs, maintenance, and improves efficiency of materials by monitoring and predicting requirements. The use of smart sensors in industrial automation improves process safety and is used for various applications such as process monitoring, process control, machine health monitoring, corrosion detection, to ensure regulatory compliance and also helps to reduce environmental pollution. In addition to this, it effectively monitors and processes the vibration and noise signals even under testing conditions, makes them suitable for wide range of industries including food processing, transportation, petrochemical, and semiconductor industries.

A sensor is a device, which is designed to acquire information from an object and transform it into an electrical signal. A smart sensor is a sensor which produces an electric output when it is combined with interfacing electronic circuits. It is a combination of both sensor and actuator. The Smart sensor has intelligence capabilities that are on-board microprocessor or microcontroller. It is used for digital processing, analog to digital conversions, and can be used for other purposes like decision making, two-way communication, and logic functions. Smart sensors have various advantages in comparison to conventional sensor like smaller size, wireless, low power consumption, high performance.
