About Optical Sensors

Optical sensors are devices that convert light or infrared rays into electronic signals. They can function in the presence or absence of light or infrared spectrum and form a part of a large electronic system. A signal from an optical sensor is analyzed or interpreted in different ways to detect the presence of a person, capture an image, or determine the position or movement of an object.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global optical sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 9.7% during the period 2016-2020.
