Over the course of an average day, a typical consumer encounters more than 100 different sensors that inform, alert, entertain, protect and ease comfort. Most people, however, don't even know the sensors are there. Given the growing capabilities of sensors and their proliferation across many markets, our lives might look very different in 10 years. In 2024, the average consumer will interact with well over 300 sensors each day.
