11:00-11:30am | Oxide Gas Sensing Material and MEMS Process - Dr. John Harley, Vice President VP Technical Marketing and Business Development, Micralyne
The need for ubiquitous gas sensing provides an outstanding emerging opportunity for miniaturized devices created with MEMS technology.  Key features for metal oxide gas sensing include integrated thin film heaters, thermal isolating membranes, and metal oxide sensing films with catalyst doping. Material choices will be presented along with process flow considerations.  

11:45am-12:15pm | Mobile Robots: New Sensor Fusion Package Gives Precise Location From the Shape of its Surroundings - Spencer Krause, Director of Product Management, SKA
This session will demonstrate a Kaarta that allows robots to know precisely where they are combining data from an inertial measurement unit and a laser scanner using a process called SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping). The session will show a non-functional unit and some videos of data from functioning units as well as explore how SLAM works in general.

12:30pm-1:00pm |  IoT Ecosystem Beyond M2M - Raj Rentala, Director of IoT Solutions, Techwave, Techwave Consulting Inc.
The Session will go through indigenously built hardware and software solution used by industry leading heavy equipment OEMs. The solution is a scalable cloud platform with real-time monitoring and analytics that works with both mechanical and intelligent engines (CANbus / Modbus). This IoT solution has significantly helped OEMs to create new avenues in equipment leasing business and also saved fuel costs for the end customer.

1:15pm-1:45pm | Pressure & Temperature all in one device with DURAsense® - DunAn Sensing

2:00pm-2:30pm | How Environmental Sensors Help Maintain Healthy Homes and Offices While Saving Energy - Dr. Heiko Ulmer, Director of Business Development, Sensirion AG
People spend approximately 90% of their life time indoors and 40% of the total amount of energy is used in buildings especially for heating, cooling, and ventilation. When MEMS sensor technologies are properly applied for indoor air quality monitoring, they are a cost-effective solution to help reduce health risks, improve comfort, and save energy.

2:45pm-3:15pm | Sensor-Driven Healthcare: Innovative Applications Today & Tomorrow - Michael Plishka, President, ZenStorming LLC
The world of medical sensors seems to be transforming the world of medical products on what seems to be a daily basis. Michael Plishka of ZenStorming, will share some of the sensor technologies that he believes are making waves in healthcare. He will also discuss and extend the definition of what ‘sensor technologies’ are and where to find them, opening the door to new business opportunities for medical products and services. Here’s to creative solutions and a better world!
