10:20 AM - 11:00 AM

Vision 2020: Megatrends in Sensors
Kiran Unni, Research Director, Measurement & Instrumentation, Frost & Sullivan
Dr. Rajender Thusu, Team Leader, Sensors and Instruments Practice - Measurement and Instruments, Frost & Sullivan

Convergence of manufacturing, distribution and retailing; energy harvesting and sustainable habitats; emergence of 'green engineering' and cleantech; and smart machines becoming intelligent machines. These are the various aspects that define the sensors industry today. How are these factors going to impact the industry of the future and what are the parameters of technology development, environmental and regulatory aspects, geopolitical implications that you need to be aware of to attain market share and mind share leadership in the next 10 years.

These global, sustained and macro economic forces of development impact business, economy, society, cultures and personal lives thereby defining our future world and its increasing pace of change. What will be the impact of urbanization, emobility, new technologies such as the smart cloud, zero emission technologies, and hybrid and electric vehicles?


11:10 AM -11:50 AM

Developing Motion Control and Pointing Applications for 3D-Like User Experiences
Chuck Gritton, CTO, Hillcrest Labs

The Wii spurred consumers’ interest in motion-control, but because it is still relatively new, many challenges exist. This session discusses keys to overcoming the challenges of implementing motion-control technologies to create a 3D-like user experience – at the quality level required for mass market acceptance and for increasing monetization.
• Learn the ways open source libraries can help you create easy-to-use applications and interfaces that incorporate motion control consumer products.
• Learn about interactive motion-control and pointing technologies and their affect on the gaming industry.
• The various motion control approaches in consumer electronics (gyroscopes, MEMS sensors, infrared/optical and RF).


1:50 PM - 2:30 PM

Benefits of IP Sensors for Use in the Home and Healthcare Applications
Geoff Mulligan, Chairman, IPSO Alliance
Jon Adams, Business Development, Freescale Semiconductor

Smart Objects using Internet Protocols is becoming the new revolution in connectivity that is not only enhancing our personal lives through smarter homes, but is creating advances in areas such as the healthcare industry.
• Learn the advantages of using IP in home and healthcare applications.
• Define what is a smart object.
• Why the old ways of proprietary and ad-hoc protocols are no longer necessary.
• How IP will be used in making both homes and medical applications smarter.


2:40 PM - 3:20 PM
