IEEE has announced availability of the IEEE 2700-2014 Standard for Sensor Performance Parameter Definitions, recently approved by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board. With sensors being one of the primary technologies to help improve the lives of every connected person in the world, IEEE 2700-2014 is intended to provide a common methodology for specifying sensor performance in the ever-expanding sensor technologies in the consumer electronics industry.
IEEE 2700-2014 aims to reinforce innovation in a variety of sensor types for vendors considering ways to integrate two or more sensors—all introduced by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and other platform providers with non-scalable integration challenges.
The IEEE 2700-2014 fulfills the need for a common methodology to define sensor performance, and eases non-scalable integration challenges and burdens across manufacturers. Because sensor framework and technology span not only sensor vendors and ISVs, there are numerous types of sensors that require specification terminology, units, conditions and limits, including: accelerometers, magnetometers, gyrometers/gyroscopes, barometers/pressure sensors, hygrometers/humidity sensors, temperature sensors, ambient light sensors and proximity sensors.
The IEEE 2700-2014 resulted from extensive efforts of the IEEE 2700 Standard for Sensor Performance Parameter Definitions Working Group and was developed under the IEEE-SA Corporate Program as an IEEE Entity standard . It is the first standard to come out of the IEEE-SA and MEMS Industry Group (MIG) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) announced in February 2014.
IEEE 2700-2014 is available for purchase at the IEEE Standards Store .
