Re: Familiar applications
There is an unlimited application for Cloud based IoT.  However, it is possible that sensor technology could not meet the IoT requirement. For example, let us build smart city or building. I image how many sensors could be required for making the smart city. Alternatively, sensor function could be extended.

Re: the age of sensor technology
"Most SaaS (Software as a service) and PaaS )platform as a service) vendors are looking at a bring future where sensors market will boom, and the change is being bought by Samsung, GE, LG and other electronic supply chain giants. The rate they are moving, it might be before a year when sensors would be the household name."

Yalanand, there is no doubt for that. Cloud and 'sensor as a serve' can complement each other.  Wherever there is automation or IoT based systems, sensor can be an integral part of that.

Re: the age of sensor technology
@yalaland yes you're right most cloud vendors are looking for bright future here but sensor market is still in early stage and its going to takes some time before we can see some result.

But there's some great advances like the recently launched Kinesis service, a fully managed service for real-time processing of streaming data at a massive scale, Amazon's description of Kinesis service is pitched mainly to its AWS customers who are looking for an effective way to capture and process live data. It's going to a year or even a decade before we can fully see the impact of sensor technology.

Re: the age of sensor technology
@Myanalog : that depends upon the area you are in. Most SaaS (Software as a service) and PaaS )platform as a service) vendors are looking at a bring future where sensors market will boom, and the change is being bought by Samsung, GE, LG and other electronic supply chain giants. The rate they are moving, it might be before a year when sensors would be the household name.

Re: the age of sensor technology
@Tzubair : Ineed. Beauty lies in the integration of such sensors into device grod (where sensors and devices can talk to each other without operational latency), and this device grid is the concern of most standardization boards lik IEEE who constantly hold meetings and conferences on how should the IOT grod ( and the underlying basic architecture itself) be designed for assembly lining.

Re: the age of sensor technology
@SachinEE I believe its already started but still in the early stages. The lack of standardization makes programming for sensor devices an arduous task, after a sensor-based program is completed and released, and its usually dependent on the type of hardware.

Using one or more solutions to enable deloyment of sensor-based system has limited and slowed the integration of sensors with hardware. There must be interoperability, Can you imagine a world without standard? cars ould not fit in the driving lane, apps would not work on mobile devices,each manufacturers would need to invent and build solutions to its problem.

Re: the age of sensor technology
but for me the single biggest issues facing the sensor industry is the lack of standardization across various operating systems, this limit the use of the full capabilities of the sensors.

@Netcrawl, I agree with you. I am not sure why there is no standardization across vearious operating systems. I am curious to know if the process of standardization has already started or do you think the same trend will continue ?

Re: the age of sensor technology
Sensors are undergoing a renaissance of sorts as MEMS technology becomes less expensive and further minituarized,

@Netcrawl, totally agree with you. As sensors sizes shrink we can add more and more functionality to the existing system. I am sure MEMS technology will find applications in many other fields which so far was considered highly unlikely to implement.

Re: the age of sensor technology
"This is very interesting sensor as service, i,e, now we don't have to search for sensors separately, all of them could be found under one roof. Any company in your knowledge already providing this kind of service."

Samicksha, so far it's not commercialized like cloud services. But can happen within a year.

Re: the age of sensor technology
"Sensor fusion is taking a leading role in IoT, advancement in sensor fusion could led to some new exciting new applications and big development, today's sensor technology is taking a big leap, its now starting to mimic the ultimate sensing machine- the human being"

@Netcrawl: Sensor technology is indeed aiming towards getting closer to how human beings perceive objects. The technology is not only aiming for higher accuracy but is also looking to broaden the range of data that can be sensed. And, of course, the beauty lies in the integration part.
