A report is out detailing the future of the demand, size, and growth of the gas sensor industry by 2022. Good news. The future is bright.
Drones are slowly working their way into every aspect of our lives. (Click here or check out the video below to see a drone beverage caddy designed by StoneWall Engineering and Aerobotics Energy Group from the 2016 Opportunity Machine Expo.) In casual settings, they are a fun recreational toy that allows use of their cameras to fly around and see the yard in a completely different way. In commercial settings, their uses range from helping directors film movies to allowing farmers to check their livestock many acres away without leaving the house. With a seemingly limitless amount of uses for drones, it makes sense the air safety industry should make use of these invaluable tools.
Gas leak detectors, as their name implies, detect gas leaks by using sensors that identify potentially harmful substances that our eyes fail to see. Although the name may be obvious, humans had to come up with many creatives ways to discover if an area was inundated with gas before the technology that we use today became widely available.
