A sensor is a type of transducer and provides various types of output, typically using electrical or optical signals. Sensors are used in everyday objects, for example, in touch-sensitive elevator buttons and lamps that dim or brighten by touching the base, in addition to numerous other applications. The use of sensors has expanded beyond the traditional fields of temperature, pressure and flow measurement. Analog sensors such as potentiometers and force-sensing resistors are still widely used in applications that include manufacturing equipment, machinery, airplanes and aerospace applications, cars, medicine and robotics. However, technological progress and the use of micromachining and
microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology in microsensors is allowing the manufacture of an increasing number of sensors on a microscopic scale. In most cases, microsensors can reach significantly higher speeds and sensitivity compared with macroscopic sensors.

Sensors convert physical phenomena into quantities measurable by data acquisition systems and are thus an important part of many measurement and automation applications. Sensors are being used in an increasing number of industries, and applications are being continually opened in new fields. Today’s production technologies, such as modern vehicles, innovative medical devices, smart power supply systems and building technologies, are inconceivable without sensors. Advanced electronic control systems provide users of sensors with ongoing advances in sensor accuracy, reliability, response time, robustness, miniaturization, communications capability and efficiency. The quality of sensors continues to improve as they become more specific and robust. They are able to impart more information yet are becoming less expensive because of improved production methods.

The need for sensors is increasing dramatically due to the ongoing boom in smart mobile communication technologies and tablet PCs. Many companies are researching novel types of sensors for these applications. For example, mobile phones with face recognition are already on the market. Even mobile phones with integrated spectrometers to measure food freshness are now possible.
