Sensors Expo returned to Rosemont Illinois in June and the mood inside the convention center was noticeably more optimistic than last year. Outside, the town was in the grip of a heat wave; but inside it was the technology itself that literally raised both the excitement level and the level of performance for new designs which made things seem, well, hotter. Here are just some of the highlights
