Industrial Sensors: The First Door To The Industrial Internet

The development of industry is inseparable from the blessing of many sensing technologies, one of the most critical technologies is the sensor. It can be said that industrial sensors have made automated smart devices with perception capabilities. After more than half a century of development, my country's industrial sensors have made certain progress in system, scale, product types, basic technology research, production, education, research and use of one-stop construction, and basically meet the needs of national economic construction.

Industrial sensors are the embodiment of the national industrial base strength

  Industrial sensors are used in various industrial scenarios such as energy, petroleum, chemical, metallurgy, electric power, machinery manufacturing, automotive and other industrial manufacturing processes. They generally refer to the force, heat, light, Magnetism, sound, humidity, electricity, environment, etc. are measured and converted into electrical signal output devices and devices. It is a kind of industrial product involving the integration of multi-disciplinary basic technology. It has the typical characteristics of intensive technology, multiple varieties, small batches, flexible use and wide application distribution.

  The German Sensing and Measurement Technology Association (AMA) pointed out in the "Sensor Technology 2022-Connecting Innovation" report that sensor technology is the core technology of many machines, equipment and vehicles' competitiveness, and a means to increase their value. Like the current rapid development of the Internet, the development of sensors brings opportunities and challenges to it. The advanced level of sensors in the future determines the international competitiveness in the fields of machinery manufacturing, automobiles, process control and manufacturing. The United States established the International Technology Group (BGT) in the 1980s to coordinate government resources, enterprises, and related departments at the national level in all aspects of sensor technology, functional materials, etc., serving the US industrial manufacturing, intelligent manufacturing, and military industry. field. At the end of the last century, Japan listed sensor technology as the top ten technology of the century. The Japanese business community directly believes that “the new era can be governed by sensor technology” and the development and utilization of sensor technology is listed as a national priority in this century. Develop one of the six core technologies.

  After more than half a century of development, China's industrial sensors have made certain progress in system, scale, product types, basic technology research, production, education, research and use of one-stop construction, and have basically met the rapid development of the national economy since the reform and opening up. need. However, the common basic research problems in my country's industrial sensor industry itself, weak innovation capabilities, few core technologies, inability of core components to get out of laboratories, and serious lack of localization of core components have not been fundamentally resolved. The shortcomings of basic scientific research in our country are still outstanding. Enterprises do not pay enough attention to basic research, lack of major original achievements, insufficient underlying basic technology and basic process capabilities, basic components, basic materials and other bottlenecks are still prominent, and the situation that key technologies are controlled by others has not fundamentally changed . As the foundation of modern industry and the cornerstone of the industrial revolution (industry 4.0), industrial sensors have an important value for the development of my country's entire industrial industry.

Suggestions for Promoting the Development of Industrial Sensor Industry

First, in view of the failure of the production, learning, research, and use chains, the weakness of core key common technologies, and the lack of attention to industrialization issues, it is recommended to rebuild the national common technology research and development institutions with reference to the construction model of the international refined, specialized, special, and standardized sensor industry. , The national sensor industry cluster, from the perspective of ecological construction, complements the one-stop sensor design, packaging, and detection, and the sensor industry pulls the one-stop, and faces the new infrastructure and the upgrade of the new generation of information technology industry. Achieve a virtuous cycle of iteration and R&D, and develop and complement the shortcomings of industrial sensors in stages.

Second, strengthen the construction of the national sensor basic industrial chain, adopt the in-depth integration of MEMS technology + IC technology and other emerging technologies, adopt cluster construction and one-stop mode to build the industrial ecological environment, and classify and build new products according to the needs of design, packaging, testing, and service ecology. Various types of sensor specialized industrial clusters for infrastructure construction.

Third, promote the construction of a public sensor technology platform under the guidance of policies, relying on national R&D platform institutions such as the National Sensor Engineering Research Center, the National Key Laboratory of Sensors, and the National Venture Capital Center for Smart Sensors, to rebuild the national sensor common technology platform, and concentrate on Basic technology research and development, promotion and industrial transformation support, endow the common technology platform for the research and development of basic common technologies and processes of sensors, as well as national third-party refereeing and evaluation capabilities in the industrial chain, and protect the uninterrupted basic and common technologies of sensors Development, promote the research of core key common technologies and new sensors, and promote the industrialization of existing scientific research results.

Fourth, build an interdisciplinary comprehensive talent training base for sensors, and provide incentive policies for common technology platforms and various invisible champion technical talents and management talents.

Fifth, there is an urgent need to introduce a series of relevant policies and systems for policy guidance, corporate responsibility, and market demand liberalization, to create an environment for sensor companies to enter the main battlefield of current new infrastructure construction, and to provide compliance companies with product access, capital, taxation, etc. Favorable conditions in many aspects, to promote the entry of domestically-made sensors by compliant companies, to continuously and quickly solve the domestic supporting problems of domestically-made sensors in stages, and to completely solve the domestic industrial sensor demand in the current new infrastructure and the upgrading of the new generation of information technology industry Difficulties to ensure a solid foundation for the construction of new infrastructure.
