Motion Processing Software for Next-Gen Mobile Devices 
Bryan Cook, Manager of Advanced Research and Design, Hillcrest Labs

MEMS accelerometers first revolutionized the UI by introducing natural motion as an input mechanism in game consoles and smartphones. This session discusses how inertial and magnetic sensors are now a critical component of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices and how motion processing software enables higher performance devices.
● How new MEMS accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetic sensors are paving the way for next-gen smartphone applications including mobile games, health monitoring, location based services, and more.
● Learn the role of software in the race to package numerous MEMS sensors together for better overall performance (of the system and for the end-user).
● The key performance and integration requirements for sensor fusion, calibration, device management, motion APIs, and application level software in mobile devices.
● How lower prices are helping drive wider adoption for natural motion interfaces, resulting in more cost-effective and efficient methods for turning sensor output into useful applications.


11:00 AM - 11:40 AM
Sensor Hub for Smartphones and Tablets
Vijendra Kuroodi, Principal Systems Architect, Design Center, ROHM Semiconductor USA, LLC

With the growing use of sensors in smartphones and tablets, manufacturers have been considering the benefits of using a sensor hub. This session explores the different approaches for smartphones and tablets, the architectural tradeoffs and expected evolution of the sensor hub.
● About typical sensors used in smartphones and tablets and key factors to consider when selecting sensors.
● Understand sensor hub options for smartphones and tablets.
● Software and system integration.


1:40 PM - 2:20 PM
Chem-Tag: A Next-Generation Personal Gas Detection Device to Protect Every First Responder
Debra Deininger, Vice President of Strategic Business,Synkera Technologies Inc.
Joshua Dennis, District Chief, Chicago Fire Department 

A novel concept for personal mobile devices as personal gas detectors is being jointly developed by the Department of Homeland Security and its industry partners. The goal is a device platform that is small, low-cost, and flexible enough to meet the needs of every First Responder in the nation.
● How recent advances in MEMS technology is enabling chemical detection in modern mobile devices, such as smartphones.
● How devices such as the Chem-Tag concept set the stage for practical commercial implementation of chemical sensors in every mobile phone, just as cameras and accelerometers are ubiquitous today.


2:30 PM - 3:10 PM 
Machine-to-Machine Driven: What ‘Embedded’ Mobile Means for Business
Alex Brisbourne, President and COO, KORE Telematics

By some estimates, there will be 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Most don’t realize that this growth is driven largely by existing products fitted with cellular connectivity. This session explains, by highlighting current real-world applications, how machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity is boosting the aftermarket.
● Learn the steps required to enable cellular and satellite connectivity on existing products.
● How the dropping cost of devices and ubiquitous wireless connectivity are paving the way for new embedded applications, even on a global basis, like never before.
● Real-world case studies of connected devices making a business productivity and profitability impact.
