Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to review the sensor technology innovations presented at the combined manufacturing‐related shows which included Design & Manufacturing, Assembly, Electronics, Medical and Green Manufacturing and known as the Assembly and Automation Technology Show or AAT Expo.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper draws on in‐depth interviews with exhibitors of sensor products.

Findings

The paper notes that sensor technology is advancing rapidly to keep up with manufacturing trends such as nanotechnology, automated testing, greater interest in 100 percent testing and the need for better product quality.

Originality/value

The paper shows how sensor users must continue to track sensor innovations as device suppliers make rapid advances in technology to address new requirements such as nanotechnology and automated quality control while working to reduce the user's cost of employing.
