Artificial intelligence, robotics, advanced electronics, and a heightened focus on sustainability are transforming more than just their respective niches. We've perused the annual list of top innovators from Fast Company and found that digital advances and sustainability aspirations are innovating aerospace, aviation, agriculture, energy, automotive, manufacturing, entertainment, and other markets.

Here we share some of these innovators (some of which we've covered before) for your consideration. You may find some ideas to help spark your own engineering innovations.
