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.Read More »Key considerations for IoT sensor devices: 1-Versatility

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

What are IoT Sensors?

Internet of Things (IoT) is such an overloaded term that it can mean many things to many people or nothing at all.  The purpose of this series of articles is to explain what some of these popular terms mean in the context of the latest technologies. Then, I will segue into something much more valuable to learn about – the anatomy of (IoT) “things”, how they fit into the larger Industrial IoT landscape, and what are the key considerations for connected sensors (“things”), especially as they relate to industrial applications.Read More »What are IoT Sensors?
