Re: [sensors] Clarify scope of generic sensor

Sensors take measurements and produce values that are defined in terms
 of a standard unit. By definition, cameras and audio microphones are 
a kind of "sensor" and both use sensors to achieve their purposeā€”but 
neither are a tool solely used to measure some specific environmental 
attribute and produce a standard unit value for that measurement. 
Wikipedia covers the subject nicely:

Bluetooth isn't a sensor, it's a standard protocol for transporting 
data over short distances.
