Understanding Virtual Sensing Technology, its Benefits & the Need for Up-to-date Sensing Standards

As manufacturers are looking into the use of virtual sensors for safety-critical systems, we explore the current and future role of standards.

White paper preview

As manufacturers are looking into the possibilities of virtual sensors for safety-critical systems, standards that apply to these systems may need to be updated to include the complexities associated with virtual sensing technology.

This white paper covers the following topics:

  • The purpose of virtual sensors;
  • Use cases for virtual sensors;
  • Virtual sensors being used for safety-critical systems; and
  • The current and future role of standards.

Dr. Edgar Sotter, Senior Director of New Product Technology was also invited to speak with other industry leaders at Globalspec Engineering 360 to explore the key differences between consumer and industrial sensors, the sensor data flow in IIOT application, challenges in sensor design, and what the future of IIOT sensors could look like. Watch the on-demand webinar: Sensor Advancement for Industry 4.0
