The sixth annual TDK Sensors Developers Conference is currently under way in Santa Clara, in the US.
Keynote speaker at the event is Jenelea Howell, director of IoT and connectivity at IHS Market.
Sensors often presented as the backbone of the Internet of Things (IoT), measuring and collecting data that enables any IoT application.
The dynamics around the adoption of IoT strategies today have a significant impact on the demand for sensors, which are experiencing significant growth trends directly in correlation with the overall IoT movement, says Howell.
Drones are increasingly being used to survey construction projects and large-scale industrial assets, including agricultural lands.
