Sensors Expo 2018: Flexible Sensors Take On Next-Gen Apps

 

  • It’s quite obvious that sensors are evolving to accommodate the myriad applications that require their assistance. Equally obvious, based on the burgeoning market for wearable electronics of every type and category, is the escalating need for sensors that can fit into, stretch over, adhere to, and conform to curved and other oddly shaped surfaces. It would not be far off to say that the market for sensors now is about one quarter for wearable, flexible, stretchable sensors of every type from temperature to position.

    New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

    Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

    At Sensors Expo & Conference 2018 in San Jose, CA, a very unique and innovative symposium will be held on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 from 9 AM to 5 PM. The symposium, titled “Commercialization Opportunities for Printed, Flexible, Stretchable, and Functional Fabric Sensors and Sensor-Based Systems for IoT and Wearables”, will offer attendees deep insights from 16 experts working in the field of flexible sensors from every angle from design to commercialization of end products. Speakers include:

    1. Dr. Gregory Auner, Professor, Wayne State University
    2. Ben Bazor, Director of Research & Development, TacSense
    3. Roger Grace, President, Roger Grace Associates
    4. Allyson Hartzell, Managing Consultant, Veryst Engineering
    5. Dr. Hu Long, Postdoctoral Researcher, Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC)
    6. Maurizio Macagno, CTO & Co-Founder, Sensoria
    7. Dr. Charles MacLeod, UK Sales & Business Development, Pressure Profile Systems
    8. Mary Ann Maher, Founder & CEO, SoftMEMS
    9. Daniel Marriott, President, Spectra Symbol
    10. Leland "Chip" Spangler, Ph.D., President, Aspen Microsystems LLC
    11. Robert Podoloff, CTO, Tekscan Inc.
