IDTechEx on Emerging Sensor Technologies

IDTechEx CEO Raghu Das and analyst Matthew Dyson present their view on "Emerging Image Sensor Technologies 2021-2031."


  1. Am I the only one who has difficulties reading the chart? 16 different but partly very similar colors. Plus the sequence in the index seems to be different from the chart itself, can anyone decode the chart for me please? I thik my teacher in school would not have accepted such a chart I think.

  2. Read it like a book. Left, right, then one line down, etc. That seem to be the sequence. The bar then is build from bottom up. An example: The third one is a green and if you look at the right bar on the bottom there is a green. If you count from back, the second last is lighter green and the second one on top of the bar is also the light green. I am not 100% sure this is right, but it made sense to me.

  3. If you want to communicate effectively, you need to make graphics that require only two seconds of attention to be understood. Graphs like this are made for the writer, who wants to show extreme cleverness in compacting, rather than communicating, data. Everyone needing to communicate graphically read the series of books by Edward Tufte.
