Reshaping Industries with Sensor Technology

TE Connectivity is on the cutting edge of sensor technology. To discuss this innovation that’s disrupting many industries, Tyler Kern chatted with VP and Chief Technology Officer, Erin Byrne, of Sensor Solutions on today’s episode of Our Connected World.

Byrne highlighted many examples of how sensors are already involved in people’s everyday use. “Sensors are ubiquitous…they’re ubiquitous in improving our lives, across our work or play. Examples that I think about that people are familiar with: You know, they’re following their sleep through using an aura ring for example, or maybe tracking their heart rhythms on their Apple watch. Or, you know, they’re getting driver assistance in new systems in cars that are being installed.” Byrne said.

Sensors are revolutionizing several industries, particularly those focused on sustainability and healthcare. In electric vehicles, sensor technology helps drivers to optimize charging, preventing the unnecessary use of electricity. Similarly, building sensors intelligently manage lighting and heating, contributing to energy conservation.

The healthcare sector is benefiting significantly from remote sensor capabilities. Doctors can now perform remote surgeries and monitor patients continuously, enhancing healthcare delivery. Erin Byrne explains the development of devices like piezoelectric films, “These films act as a dynamic stream gauge,” she says. This technology eases healthcare staffing pressure by monitoring patients when human oversight isn’t possible.

Beyond traditional applications, sensors’ potential is vast. We can anticipate more transformative sensor technology contributing to challenges like sustainability and healthcare efficiency in the future.
