Sensors plays a key role in every day activities, such as temparature control, traffic control, blood pressure monitering and many more. In short with out sensors we can not imagine the present world.

Hi

in our company we are developing sensors that are located in your hands free or Headset and your boss will be able to know when you are in front of your PC and for how long you've been away of your work station, great tool for micro-management.

 

:D

I agree wih you but i wasthinking in line of how many major or minor surgery a person has to under go every time there is a need to maintain the sensor (s)

Adeniji, the answer is obvious :-) but the chaces are rare as with normal day electronic items. But for a sensor industry the solution can be to put another sensor to monitor the first one. The chances that both the sensor will fail simultaneously are even rare.

"There are both pros and cons of using sensors everywhere. Although there are lot of potential applications of using sensors, we need to make sure that users privacy is not violated."

Unfortunately most of the abuses are by big business and generally governments tend to regulate after the fact, that is to say laws are not generally made to cover fantasy situations but real live situations, this is where the whole system fails, because in many cases we  are dealing with fantasy. consider the naughtiness that google got up to recently with scanning the WIFI networks , legally there is nothing to stop them performing this action, but as a result they now have a geo-location system based on WIFI routers acting as the homing beacons.

Then there is the issue related to Android, which is based on the open source Linux kernel, but Google did not want to play that game, so they closed off part of the operating system(what happened there !!), specifically the part that allows them to track you, delete your software, revoke your licenses and potentially many other things that have not yet come to light.

Yes  technology can be used for good or bad, but unfortunately 'bad' is where it is at right now, specifically because theft of personal information is currently BIG business, adding cheap sensors into that, will only extend the ways in which Google/facebook/Linkedin and any number of future startup companies can invade your privacy, and all for the want of making a quick buck, or in the above cases a few billion bucks.

These clown need to be reined in and fast, but again we see that there has been a consolidated effort by the big abusers of technology to try and block a Californian discussion on laws enabling parents to find out and control what their children are doing, why?, because they know children are easy targets and lack the social skills of knowing when to keep their mouthes closed, as a result children are a massive source of information.

Things will really take a sinister turn once they produce toys that are sensor enabled and linkable to the internet.

About Sensors

Computers, computer systems, systems, mobiles, automated systems, etc. are nothing without  the embedding sensors inside them. Sensors give to our device some human characteristics and the ability to "sense" . Without sensors, we can't control, measure and calculate things. More sensors mean more options and more features to do with our products.  Adding with small cost some sensors we can give to our product bigger value.

What would be really cool is if we can embedd a sensor into our body that keeps track of our calories intake and calories expenditure. That way we can know at any point in time how much excess we have to burn or how much more we can eat. That way alot of the obesity problem can be controlled.  I wonder if there is such technology out there. I'd be the first one to buy!

"Potentially we are entering dangerous times, in which companies such as Google will be leveraging the internet and closed software such as Android"

There are both pros and cons of using sensors everywhere. Although there are lot of potential applications of using sensors, we need to make sure that users privacy is not violated.
