Increasing Plethora of Advanced Technology Motion Sensors to Support Market Growth

Blog Description

Motion sensors refer to any type of sensing system utilized to detect the motion of an object or human beings. These sensors detect physical movement in a designated area or location and then transform that particular motion into an electrical signal. Motion sensors are commonly employed in security systems but can also be utilized in a wide range of applications. The increasing applications of motion sensors within the consumer electronics and automotive industries are amongst the major factor propelling the growth of the market.

MEMS Accelerometers and Infrared Sensors Led Market In 2014

In terms of type, the market is categorized into MEMS magnetometers, MEMS accelerometers, MEMS gyroscopes, ultrasonic sensors and sensor combos. Amongst these, MEMS accelerometers led the market on the basis of revenue in 2014. These are utilized for the detection of earthquakes and in medical devices such as artificial body parts. In terms of technology, the market is segmented into infrared sensors, microwave sensors, tomographic sensors, ultrasonic sensors and others. Amongst these, infrared sensors led the market in terms of revenue in 2014.

In addition, there have been a number of advancements in motion sensors which have brought in a new dimension to the way security at home and at the workplace can been enhanced. Some of the latest technological advancements in motion sensors are mentioned as follows:

  • LED Motion Sensors: These motion sensors add enhanced security and convenience, are easy to install, and present a superior service. This motion sensor comes in the form of a bulb and consumes very low energy as compared to the normal bulbs utilized at workplaces or households. The bulb lights up when an object or human being enters a designated area so as to illuminate it.
  • Driveway Alert Motion Sensors: These motion sensors send notifications when any kind of movement takes place. They comprise a passive infrared sensor for the detection of any fast moving body. If any kind of motion by an object or person is perceived, signals are sent to the receiver via transmitters, after which an alarm goes off.
  • Solar Light Motion Sensors: These solar light powered motion sensors feature a simple and unique design and can be peeled and stuck on any kind of surface. These motion sensors do not involve any kind of wiring. They are weather-resistant, durable, and heat proof. They can be fixed utilizing a hinge and screws and can be fitted on glass, metals, bricks, and wood. These PIR motion sensors get activated automatically after the detection of any kind of movement.

Furthermore, in May 2016, a study conducted by the Stanford University School of Medicine on the use of motion sensors in the tracking of seizures stated that motion sensors—when linked to an online database—can help in tracking seizures epileptic persons. This can be achieved by the utilization of a bio sensing wrist accelerometer linked with an online database. Hence, the above mentioned technological advancements in motion sensors will further raise their demand in the coming years.
