From the growing trend of Internet of Things (IoT) through the continuous evolution of smartphones to the increasing demand for automation in general industry, the advances in today's technology are driven by Sensors. As a matter of fact, the exciting IoT paradigm couldn’t exist without smart sensing devices - the so called “things” connected to Internet either directly or through a gateway/access point. These smart devices are able to sense (the environment, building or machines conditions, people’s emotions, movements, or biometric screening, etc.), store and process sensory data, actuate, and communicate data to the remote cloud for being stored and analyzed, using RF technologies in wireless sensor networks. The plethora of IoT application areas, including building automation, retail and logistics, healthcare, transportation, environment, industrial, and so one, are pushing sensor technology to the limits. IoT is just an excellent example that illustrates the many advances that are being achieved in sensor technology, yet there is still much to be achieved.
