    Hello everyone, I am Rose. Welcome to the new post today. Today I will introduce smart sensors to you. Traditional sensors are no longer able to perform certain data processing tasks, including self-inspection, self-calibration, and self-compensation, due to the automation and intelligence of measurement and control systems. Intelligent sensors and multipurpose sensors have been developed and are already being used. This article thoroughly describes smart sensors in terms of their structural features, application domains, market development, and technological advancements.
