Narrator: Autonomous sensors are the bridge that connects the physical and digital worlds.
Images move through to show a world globe covered with a network pattern, cars moving along a multi lane highway and data can be seen next to the cars, and a city with a network symbol over it]
As sensor technologies evolve, a whole new world opens up, a world where technology can make reliable human like decisions based on local and global data, bringing forth new ideas for existing fields in science to be explored.
