Sensors: Measuring the World Around Us
Sensors are devices used to measure physical characteristics of the environment, such as temperature, light, and sound. Data captured by sensors is used to monitor, control, and automate tasks in our daily lives. Examples of sensors include temperature probes, pressure gauges, and barometers.
