Reportlinker has added a new market research report titled “Wireless Sensors for Precision Agriculture and Environmental Monitoring - Global Forecast and Analysis by Sensor Types, Applications and Geography (2011-2016)” to its portfolio.
This report focuses on "ambient intelligence". It also shows forecast of wireless sensors market for precision agriculture and environmental monitoring. According to this report, environmental and agricultural monitoring are considered as areas equipped with use intelligent sensor interface for tracking, controlling, and monitoring environment and agriculture in situ- real time.
In this report, market has been classified based on products, applications and geographies. Based on parameters identified and measured by sensors, the product market has been divided as physical sensors, mechanical sensors, and chemical sensors.
Physical sensors are segmented into pressure sensors, acoustic sensors, flow sensors, temperature sensors, and humidity sensors. Mechanical sensors are divided into level sensors, proximity sensors, position sensors, and motion sensors. Chemical sensors are segmented as biosensors and gas sensors.
Based on application, environmental monitoring features ambient air and greenhouse gas emissions monitoring, water management, and also forest fire detection, and flood detection. Crop growth monitoring, precision irrigation and water management, soil monitoring, pest and disease detection, vehicular movement and management fall under agricultural monitoring.
The report geographically spans Europe, North America, APAC and ROW.
This report extends across the global environment of wireless sensors that supports environmental and agricultural monitoring for the next five years providing perception towards the three main functions of a sensor such as Security & Warning, Monitoring & Control, and Diagnosis & Analysis existing within a system.
