An Introduction to IoT Sensors

Article | March 5, 2020

This post will cover various important sensors that are possibilities for an IoT deployment. Sensors are the backbone of any IoT deployment. They gather information and provide software with sensory information it needs to achieve its full potential. In addition, this post will go over considerations and decision-making for selecting sensors in an IoT deployment. Often times, a single sensor is not the best implementation, a suite of sensors can gather more data and even affect behavior for other sensors. In many cases, more than one sensor is necessary to perform the IoT deployment’s function. Sensors are just as critical to every IoT application as the internet. Imagine Alexa or Google Home without a microphone: it wouldn’t work. People wouldn’t be able to interact with the device, or it would need some other kind of sensor such as a keyboard to obtain input from a user.

In 2018 when Apple unveiled its iconic iPhone X with a feature to unlock the phone with Face ID thereby eliminating the use of the home button, it met a lot of eye-rolls. Fast forward to now, people are in love with the biometrics enabled technologies. While iPhone X had a unimodal authentication system, gadget these days have updated themselves in a better way. Let’s try to have a better understanding of the Biometrics. Biometrics are a way to measure a person’s physical characteristics to verify their identity. It can be physiological traits, like fingerprints and eyes, or behavioral traits, that define the manner an individual respond to stimuli. These characteristics are unique to the person. Once collected the data compared with the pre-existing database to find a match. Accordingly, it then produces an outcome. There are many varieties in which this data is collected. Facial and voice recognition, iris and finger scanner, signature verification, hand geometry, keystroke, gait detectors are some of the examples.
