The latest technologies and innovations in applied sensors, mobile sensing, RFID/M2M, MEMS, big data &analytics, wireless sensing solutions, energy harvesting, sensor and system design as well as approaches to measurement & detection will be displayed at the 2012 Sensors Expo & Conference to be held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL from 6th to 7th June, 2012 with a Pre-Conference Symposia being held on 5th June, 2012.
Sensors Expo & Conference
The 2012 Sensors Expo will showcase the latest sensing trends and will witness a gathering of more than 4000 scientists, industry professionals and engineers from countries around the globe.
Highlights of the 2012 Sensors Expo include an energy harvesting pavilion, a MEMS innovation area, a wireless pavilion, a data & cloud pavilion and a technology update theatre. The BOSE (Best of Sensors Expo) Awards will be presented to the winners by Sensors Magazine. The 2011 Gold BOSE winners included Austriamicrosystems, InfraTec Infrared, Plessey Semiconductors and Synkera Technologies. The Silver and Bronze award winners included Meggitt Sensing Systems, MicroStrain, DTS and Libelium.
The Group Show Director at Questex Media Group, Wendy Loew stated that several new conference tracks on RFID/M2M, sensor & system design, big data & analytics and applied sensors, reinforcing that the exhibitors have their pulse on the latest developments and key issues of the sensor markets. Loew also added that an exclusive education program featuring Assaf Biderman, the Associate Director of SENSEable City Laboratory and a professor at MIT has been arranged on June 6th, 2012. Professor Assaf Biderman, in his presentation, will present the role of sensors and data capturing methods and the opportunities created by microprocessors, sensing and network connectivity.
The topics of the pre-conference symposia include MEMS infrastructure and commercialization; analysis of energy harvesting technologies, power management and smart sensor systems design.
