This chapter summarises the latest trends in the use of intelligent sensors in engineering applications. New approaches and computation methods used in different research areas are discussed here. Materials used for this report were selected from a broad range of academic and public sources. They emphasise the scientific motivation that brings technological development in that area. The key points discussed are: Parameters and types of sensors currently used. What makes the science world interested in intelligent sensors? What are the currently developed applications in academia? Benefits from using sensors. Processing capacities offered by intelligent sensors. The key targets for intelligent sensors are to research and utilise novel technologies that can perform the required functions robustly, inexpensively and at extremely low power.
