First Ever Trillion Sensors Roadmap Outline to be released at TSensors Summit

PITTSBURGH, PA -- MEMS and Sensors Industry Group, the trade association advancing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors across global markets, announced today that it plans to release the outline of TSensors (Trillion Sensors) Roadmap on December 9 at the 2015 TSensors Summit. It will also present the plan for completion during 2016.

The objective of the Roadmap is to increase global awareness about emerging sensor-based applications with huge commercialization potential in the next decade and facilitate key engagements between developers of emerging sensor technologies and interested commercialization entities. It is believed that early visibility of such applications will reduce the new sensor type commercialization cycle from two-three decades to less than one.

The core of TSensors Roadmap will leverage key content from presentations at all seven TSensors Summits organized between 2013 and 2015 at UC Berkeley, Stanford, UC San Diego, Munich, twice in Tokyo and Orlando. The Roadmap will be focused on emerging 2025 ultrahigh volume applications which could contribute to acceleration of Abundance, the World with no hunger, medical care and clean energy to all, and no pollution to be reached in about 20 years.
During these seven events approximately 260 speakers from seven countries presented their visions for the emerging ultrahigh volume sensor-based applications and supporting technologies. Many of these speakers will now contribute to the Roadmap.

It was discovered during TSensors activities that the utopian Abundance dream happened to line up with the largest economic tides in history, namely the Internet of Things, mHealth and Food & Agriculture Technologies, all riding on exponential technologies and TSensors. As a result, the support of Abundance lines up with extraordinary business opportunities.
Multiple visions have emerged for a TSensors market, with the largest forecasting 100 trillion sensors by 2030. These predictions are supported by the forecasted magnitude of the IoT and mHealth, expected to reach $32.5 trillion by 2025 (about 36% of the current GDP).

The explosive connectivity growth of “all things” is obviously not just about the hardware. BrontoBytes (1027) of sensor derived data are forecasted as soon as 2020’s. Such volume of data creates unprecedented business opportunities for data generation (sensors), services, analytics and visualization. These opportunities are estimated by some to represent as much as 50% to 90% of global profits in 2025.

Event Information

TSensors Summit is made possible thanks to the combined efforts of Enterprise Florida, the University of Central Florida, ICAMR (International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research), Orlando EDC and The Florida High Tech Corridor, with additional sponsorship support from ROHM, ams, Kionix, QuickLogic, Tousimis, Qualcomm, PNI Sensor and New Generation M2M Consortium.
