IoT Sensors

IoT Sensors are embedded computing platforms that serve as the basis for connecting devices to applications that allow remote device access and management. Most offer remote accessibility via Wi-Fi or onboard network connectivity. Their computing capabilities vary by manufacturer and use case.

IoT Sensors come from a variety of providers and various form factors, including chipsets and boards. The growing demand to connect devices, homes, buildings, and cars will fuel the growth of this segment. Cost will be a key factor and we expect multiple classes of devices to emerge from basic chipsets and sensors to full compute platforms.

A new development is IoT Sensor Data platforms, which is also a market that CRM providers are competing in.

Representative Vendors: Apollo Electronics, Arduino, Arm, Bosch, Dialog Semiconductor, Espressif, General Electric, IBM, Laird Connectivity, MachineQ (LoRa), Microchip Technology, Monnit, Qualcomm, TE Connectivity, STMicroelectronics and Raspberry Pi.
