In the IT market, sensing is not a new technology. Not only has the technology been mature for a long time, but it has also been widely used. The industry has pointed out that sensors are the first line of the sensing network. In terms of technology, motion sensing is the most popular technology at present, while sound sensing is still in the state of development, but it has considerable development potential in the future.
Looking at the future trend of sensing technology, whether it is the Internet of things or wearable devices, there are still several common trends of sensing components in the future. The first is the multi axis of the system. The development of the sensing system towards multi axis is an important trend in the sensing application market. In fact, the multi axis pace of the sensing system has not stopped. From the early generation of single axis sensors, it has evolved to the common 3-axis, 6-axis, 9-axis, 10 axis and 11 axis, Even the new 12 axis sensing system, multi axis is already an irreversible road.
What are the so-called "multi axes" of the sensor? Which axes are necessary and which are only secondary? Generally speaking, from three-axis accelerometer, three-axis gyroscope to three-axis electronic compass, this 9-axis has almost become the standard equipment of smart phones. Most applications can be completed through these three sensors, which can be called the "three main axes" in the sensing system.
In addition to these three kinds of sensors, including altimeters, pressure gauges, thermometers and light sensors, have been added to the sensing system and become one of the members of multi axis. Since multi axis is an established trend, more manufacturers will continue to develop more axis sensing platforms in the future to meet the market application needs.
