It's certainly handy to know how fast gears or wheels are spinning, but equipping them with external sensors can be awkward and may affect their performance. That's why scientists have devised a method of 3D-printing wireless sensors right into the things.
Building sensors and even intelligence into objects themselves will be a new frontier for the semi sector as not only sensors, but control systems as they get closer and even interwoven in to everything and even maybe into drugs for efficacy. This could be an entirely new area for the semi sector. Any thoughts, additions or comments appreciated.
