Key considerations for IoT sensor devices: 1-Versatility

 

With my two decades of experience designing complex electronic systems as well as recent two years focused on building IoT systems and solving System Integrators’ pain points, several key characteristics became evident to me that define the best-in-class industrial IoT sensor devices:

  1. Versatility
  2. Power consumption efficiency
  3. Ease of use
  4. Security
  5. Industrial deployment readiness
  6. Cost effectiveness

Now, I will cover each consideration in more detail. More info

What are IoT sensor devices?

The previous article – “What Are IoT Sensors?” – gave a high level overview of IoT system, now let’s drill down to what are IoT sensor devices.

Executive Summary:

  • IoT sensors are necessary components of any IoT application
  • Consist of sensors combined with communication capabilities
  • Many different types of sensors exist
  • Wireless communication is key to new applications
  • Multiple wireless standards exist since no one size fits all
  • Need a way to abstract application from sensing and communication methods
