The Internet of Things (IoT) is gaining a lot of traction as the importance of high-tech sensor modules are being focused on as an integral part of smart technology. The funding in these sensors have increased in a manner that is nearly three times larger than in the past decade. This means that more developers and consumers are realizing the limitless potential of sensors and what they mean for the IoT. A lot of devices currently have sensors, but if a device is able to actually act on the data collected through sensors, technology will be substantially more powerful and efficient.
North America is leading the push for sensor innovation, but the investment in other areas around the globe are still increasing in number. Companies like Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, and IBM are investing billions of dollars in an effort to further develop sensor technology. It is clear that the future of the IoT is in the hands of sensor modules.
