Wireless sensors are self configuring and self powered sensors that are used for sensing environmental data and perform actuation functions efficiently and accurately. Wireless sensors deployed with intelligent sensor-interface monitors, informs, and offers granular control of agriculture and environment situations in real-time. The use wireless sensing technology (wireless sensors) help in monitoring environmental characteristics such as barometric pressure, atmospheric humidity, underground water level, wind direction, rainfall, and wind speed, allowing end-users located remotely to manage this information. Thus, wireless sensors are expected to be the major driving force behind the growth of environment and agriculture monitoring market. Wireless sensors when combined with big data processing and cloud computing offers opportunity to achieve easy-human-system interaction. High cost of the wireless technology and uncertainty over reliability of wireless systems are the biggest challenges faced by this market.
In industrial street lighting applications, wireless sensors are coupled to the lighting points or lamp posts so as to control the lighting at these points and get information on its operations, diagnostics, and failures. The use of wireless sensors improves industrial street lighting service and reduces power consumption. Thus, wireless sensors are expected to be the major driving force behind the growth of intelligent lighting systems in the coming decade.
The wireless sensor for environmental and agricultural monitoring market is segmented on the basis of type, and geography.
