Conference Gives Deeper Understanding of MEMS Technology
Monday, December 16, 2013 | Marketwired
MEMS Industry Group (MIG)'s conference session at the 2014 International CES®, MEMS Sensor Fusion - Revolutionizing the Internet of Things, will give consumer-electronics OEMs critical information on gaining all the benefits of MEMS technology--without the drawbacks. MEMS Sensor Fusion features senior executives from companies such as ARM, Bosch Sensortec, Freescale Semiconductor, InvenSense, JAWBONE and Movea, all sharing information on how tiny micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensor fusion will play a pivotal role in creating a more intelligent and intuitive Internet of Things (IoT).
- MEMS Industry Group's Welcome and Introduction - given by Steve Whalley, member, MIG Governing Council, and director, Sensors, Intel Corporation .
- Big Data Begins with Little Data - opening keynote by Mike Muller, CTO, ARM.
- A Trillion MEMS Sensors in CE products in the Future - An Opportunity or a Curse? - featured presentation by Paul Bryan, executive vice president, product management and strategy, Kionix.
- Hardware-Software Co-design: The Secret to Sensor Fusion - featured presentation by Stefan Finkbeiner, CEO, Bosch Sensortec.
- Intelligent Sensors and the Internet of Things - featured presentation by Babak Taheri, vice president and general manager, Sensor and Actuator Solutions Division (SASD), Freescale Semiconductor.
- Wearables and MEMS Sensor Fusion - panel moderated by Ivo Stivoric, vice president of research and development, JAWBONE; with panelists: Sam Guilaumé, CEO, Movea; Sam Massih, director, Wearable Sensors, InvenSense; Tony Massimini, CTO, Semico Research; and Per Slycke, CTO and founder, Xsens.
- MEMS: Unlocking Possibilities of Wearables & the Internet of Me - closing keynote by Michael Luna, CTO, JAWBONE.
"MEMS devices are shipping by the hundreds of millions in smartphones, tablets, video game hardware and wearables of all kinds. And they are increasingly creating a true IoT through smart data connected to the cloud. The challenge for consumer-electronics OEMs is to take full advantage of the capabilities of MEMS, in order to realize all the benefits of the IoT, while still conserving power and size in consumer applications," said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. "CE OEMs who attend our conference session on sensor fusion will learn how to maximize their investment in MEMS--the core enabling technology of the IoT."
