As the only technical program that is entirely committed to the sensor industry, the 34th annual Sensors 2019 Conference will provide attendees with the industry’s largest collection of sensor-focused events. This year’s event, which will take place at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California from June 25, 2019 to June 27, 2019, is expected to host over 9,000 attendees from around the world.
About the Sensors Expo and Conference
The Sensors Expo and Conference is considered to be the largest event purely dedicated to promoting sensory technology in North America. Each year, this three-day conference aims to bring the leading innovators, practitioners, academic scholars and other industrial professionals together for the unique opportunity to explore cutting-edge sensor technologies in action.
The Sensors 2019 Conference will feature more than 65 different sessions covering a wide variety of topics ranging from artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT), to machine learning and wireless technology applications. In fact, this year’s conference has been expanded to include more interactive opportunities for attendees as a result of an increased number of demos and hands-on application activities that will be available throughout the event.
With an additional 10 conference tracks that have been updated to this year’s Sensor Conference and Expo, attendees can select between the following tracks that specifically cater to their professional needs:
- Chemical and Gas Sensing
- Energy Harvesting and Power
- IoT and Wireless
- Optical Sensing
- Process Manufacturing
- Sensor Applications
- Sensor Data and Advanced Analytics
- Sensors in an AI Universe
- Smart Cities
In addition to the new and updated conference tracks that will comprise this year’s Sensors Conference and Expo, three distinct co-located events will also be offered to all attendees. The first event will include the Autonomous Vehicle Sensors Conference, which will include numerous technical sessions and interactive panels offering attendees an in-depth look at the current manufacturers leading the way in developing purely autonomous vehicles, as well as how sensing technology will play a role in this rapidly advancing field.
The second co-located event will be the Medical Sensors Design Conference. This portion of the conference will feature unique educational and networking opportunities for individuals currently developing innovative sensors for medical and healthcare applications.
Finally, the third co-located event of this year’s Sensors Conference and Expo will be the Embedded Technologies Expo and Conference which will include various sessions, symposia and interactive workshops across the three-days. During the course of this event attendees will gain an intimate understanding of the challenges that many professionals in the industry face during the development of their products. Some of these topics will include AI and Machine Learning for Industrial Applications, Designing for Industrial Applications, New and Emerging Wireless Protocols, Security, Debugging the Most Efficient C/C++ Code, Automotive Applications and much more.
The Sensors 2019 Conference and Expo will feature two keynote speakers for attendees that have purchased registration passes for these events. The first keynote speech, which will take place on Wednesday, June 26, will be presented by Allison Barto, a program manager for the James Webb Space Telescope at Ball Aerospace Corporation.
This keynote speech, which is titled “Engineering Discovery: Building NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope”, will discuss some of the key questions many astronomers face during the design and development of telescopes. More specifically, Barto aims to address the precision and accuracy requirements that were followed for the development of the James Webb Space Telescope, which is the largest, most powerful and complex space telescope ever to have been built.
The second keynote speech, which will take place on Thursday, June 27, will be presented by Gerardo Giaretta, the Senior Director of Product Management at Qualcomm Europe, Inc. Giaretta’s speech, titled “What Does 5G Mean for IoT,” will discuss the vast potential of 5G technology to deliver multi-Gbps peak rates at an ultra-low latency and massive capacity compared to other mobile networks. Furthermore, Giaretta plans to provide the audience with the preliminary information required to begin incorporating 5G technology to edge processing, LTE IoT, robotics platform, private LTE networks and much more.
In addition to each of the discussed events that will take place during the Sensors 2019 Conference and Expos, all attendees will have the opportunity to access and network with more than 300 different exhibitors on the Sensors Expo Floor. The excitement and anticipation surrounding this year’s event has been further promoted by the evaluations of past attendees, who have boasted about the immense passion they feel whilst listening to the speakers, exhibitors and attendees during the course of this event.
