Today intelligent sensors are not only collecting data, they preparing and processing it further to provide information. Sensors no longer just “sense,” and with the beginnings of digitization they are now starting to “think.”
From this point onward, the transmission of information produced in this way is becoming a key technology. The success of networked value creation chains is heavily dependent on the successful integration of sensors in the overall architecture of an application.
