Abstract:
The 2012 Sensors Expo & Conference will bring together over 4,000 engineers, scientists and industry professionals from around the world to see the latest innovations in sensor technology, learn about the most important sensing trends, and network with industry leaders. The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center will be hosting the conference again this year in Rosemont, IL June 6-7, 2012. Highlights of the event include a MEMS Pavilion featuring a MEMS Innovation Area, Energy Harvesting Pavilion, Wireless Pavilion, Big Data & Cloud Pavilion, a Technology Update Theater, the Best of Sensors Expo Awards presented by Sensors Magazine and much more.

Sensors Expo & Conference Is the Only Industry Event Focused Exclusively on Sensors and Sensor Integrated Systems: First Day Keynote to Be Presented by SENSEable City Laboratory Associate Director Assaf Biderman

Newton, MA | Posted on March 6th, 2012

"As the leading sensors event in North America, with a 25 year history, we have kept our finger on the pulse of the most pressing issues and have added several new conference tracks focused on Applied Sensors, Big Data & Analytics, RFID/M2M and Sensor & System Design," said Wendy Loew, Group Show Director for Questex Media Group, LLC, producers of Sensors Expo. "We have worked closely with leaders in the industry to create a comprehensive education program, which will feature futurist, Assaf Biderman, an MIT Professor and Associate Director at SENSEable City Laboratory."

The Pre-Conference Symposia will be held Tuesday, June 5 from 9 am - 5 pm. Topics will include:

MEMS in the Mainstream: Commercialization and Product Realization - Leveraging the MEMS Infrastructure led by Session Chairman and Organizer: Karen Lightman, Managing Director, MEMS Industry Group. Organized and hosted by MEMS Industry Group (MIG), the leading trade association advancing MEMS across global markets, this pre-conference symposium will explore the many models of achieving MEMS commercialization and product realization. System-level customers attending this pre-conference will learn how to leverage a mature MEMS infrastructure capable of delivering system-level components without the cost, development time or performance risks of years past. Speakers will discuss how MEMS fabrication has evolved, creating a new era of in-house fabrication as well as fabless and fab-lite manufacturing. Presentations will include different perspectives on how companies have incorporated MEMS solutions into their current product line -- while using their existing infrastructure. They will also address the product development challenges and the market-pull vs. technology-push issues that are unique to MEMS. In other words, MEMS is in the mainstream.

Energy Harvesting for Powering Sensors Tutorials led by Session Organizer: Randy Frank, President, Randy Frank & Associates, Ltd. Presenters in this symposium will provide an in-depth analysis of the challenges and solutions of using energy harvesting techniques of varying types for powering sensors. In addition to exploring the energy harvesting technologies, other system aspects will be addressed including high efficiency, low-power microcontrollers, wireless connectivity, and power management. By explaining the design-in requirements for existing energy harvesting products in real-world applications, attendees will have new tools to consider in the design of next-generation sensor systems.

Over fifty sessions will be offered during the two day conference broken down into nine tracks on the following topics: MEMS, Energy Harvesting, Wireless Sensing Solutions, Sensor and System Design, Novel Approaches to Measurement & Detection, Big Data & Analytics, Mobile Sensing, Applied Sensors, and RFID/M2M. For specific conference sessions and speaker information visit the Conference Tracks section of www.sensorsexpo.com.

Engineers and executives planning to attend the Sensors Expo & Conference will have the opportunity to hear from Assaf Biderman who is currently teaching at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and is the Associate Director of SENSEable City Laboratory -- a research group that explores the "real-time city" by studying the increasing deployment of sensors and networked hand-held electronics, as well as their relationship to the built environment. Biderman will deliver the keynote presentation "A Human-Computer-City Interface" on Wednesday, June 6 at 9 am.

In this keynote, Assaf Biderman will present a view of the role sensors and other data capturing methods can play in making new connections between people and the built environment as a way to address some of today's more pressing urban challenges. The presentation will focus on how cities are facing unparalleled opportunities now that distributed digital technologies like sensing, microprocessors, and network connectivity are becoming an integral part of the built environment. This new condition allows individuals to monitor the city and make smarter decisions as they move around, consume, and interact with the urban environment. We can view this as a new type of human-computer-city interface, through which individuals and organizations can create and connect with new urban services, and which opens multiple avenues for innovation to make its way into our cities. With the global move toward urbanization, and given the challenges that cities face -- environmental impact, energy consumption, transportation -- such opportunities have become particularly relevant.

The Expo Hall, featuring leading hundreds of vendors showcasing the latest sensing technologies and systems, will be open on Wednesday, June 6 from 10 am - 5 pm and on Thursday, June 7 from 10 am - 3 pm. Conference sessions will run from 10 am - 4 pm both days with keynote presentations starting at 9:00 am. The event will take place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, 5555 N. River Road, Rosemont, IL. Silver Sponsors of the event include EPSON and ROHM Semiconductor. Registration is open at www.sensorsexpo.com and packages are available at low early bird rates for a limited time.
