sen·sor

(sĕn′sər)
A device that responds to a physical stimulus and converts the stimulus into a signal conveyed to another device. For example, a sensor in a printer detects that the paper tray is empty and sends a signal to the digital display that the tray is out of paper.

sensor

An equipment which detects, and may indicate, and/or record objects and activities by means of energy or particles emitted, reflected, or modified by objects.

sensor

A device for sensing and measuring light, pressure, or temperature, and sending information back to a computer.
