A light sensor is a sensor that converts light signals into electrical signals using photosensitive elements. The light sensor is usually composed of a set of light projector and light receiver. Light sensors are generally composed of three parts: light source, optical path and optoelectronic components. The measured changes are converted into changes in optical signals are further converted into electrical signals with the help of photoelectric elements. In the future, with the development and popularization of Internet of Things technology, the application of light sensors will penetrate into all aspects of human life.
The development of new technologies of the Internet of Things has brought the whole world into the era of the Internet of Things, which is a new era that is more intelligent than the information age. In the process of developing the Internet of Things, smart sensors play an indispensable role.
With the rapid development of emerging industries such as the Internet of Things and mobile Internet. Smart sensors are composed of sensing elements, and signal conditioning circuit controllers, and have data acquisition, conversion, analysis, and even decision-making functions. Intelligence can improve the accuracy of the sensor, reduce power consumption and volume, and achieve easier networking, thereby expanding the application range of the sensor and making its development more rapid and effective.
Smart machinery manufacturers must accelerate innovation, gain the policy resources of the production and innovation platform, develop the domestic industrial acceleration scale group, and the intelligent diagnosis maintenance system (IDMS), which has been successfully introduced into the innovative application of high-tech industries.
After "Cloud Computing", a new term "Fog Computing" has been added in recent years. It mainly comes from the phrase "fog is a cloud closer to the ground".
Industrial robots use a large number of sensors to achieve good operation and control in industrial automation production processes. For example, collaborative robots integrate torque sensors and cameras to ensure the best perspective and safety. What sensors are integrated with industrial robots?
An important issue in the development of smart manufacturing is human-computer collaboration, and true human-computer collaboration does not only mean cooperation and coexistence. As the frequency of man-machine operations working together in the same workspace is getting higher and higher, many sensors are also appearing to assist in monitoring and preventive control.
