The current engineering revolution sees advances in cutting-edge technologies in computing, artificial intelligence, and communications. These technological advances have further fueled with the integration of real-time signal processing with the help of intelligent sensors, which would lead to more reliable, productive, and efficient industries and businesses in the future. The real-time information acquisition is challenging without the help of these sensing devices. The use of these sensors is highly varied, and they are used in areas as diverse as the agriculture, health, and military sectors, to name a few.
In the past, sensors had very constrained computing capabilities, so their functionality was mainly limited to data acquisition and transmission. Recently, many researchers have shown interest in the non-invasive monitoring such as monitoring through ECG, limiting the mobility of patients, and the spread of contagious infections between patients and hospital staff members such as in the case of COVID 19. Scientific researchers and innovators have been experimenting with wearable sensors to promote remote monitoring and early diagnosis of chronic diseases. Sensors are also used for storing obtained data in the cloud and local data repositories for future decision-making processes. Due to the increment of smart devices in a computer network, IoT devices have numerous issues, including low security, low storage volume, energy inefficiency, privacy breaches, and low scalability. Most researchers are interested in cloud computing and IoT sectors since both areas are highly researched and enriched with artificial intelligence (AI) and wireless wearables with numerous sensors. In agriculture, sensors installed in the greenhouse measure temperature, leaf moisture, sunlight, and carbon dioxide. Artificial intelligence analyzes these values, combines them with weather forecasts, and sends warnings to farmers via an app and become helpful in good yield. Security systems rely on smart and intelligent sensor technologies and, hence, sensors have become an essential part of military systems also.
The current trend is to merge information from various types of sensors to have a more productive and more reliable system like assistive systems using adaptive learning and decision making.
Within this framework, this Special Issue tries to bring together all the latest developments in the area of “Intelligent Sensors trends in Real-time Signal Processing.”
