Detection systems with fast and precise timing are intensely part of ongoing and future detector R&D for the unique measurements and selection condition that they can offer to experiments and applications. Each specific case requires specific timing precision together with other distinct requirements. A few examples are radiation hardness, rate capabilities, granularity and large area coverage. In this wide and varied context of requests, different technologies and detection systems are proposed. High precision timing requires a strong interplay between sensor, readout electronics and signal processing. Every single part will play an important role in the results and common aspects are present between the different technologies. The aim of the talk is to overview ongoing developments on different sensor technologies targeting tens of picoseconds of time resolution. Principles and methods behind timing measurements and detector response characterization will be discussed, using examples coming from the ongoing R&D activities. Particular emphasis will be given to beam studies and hardware setup.
