MEMS & Sensors Industry Group highlights near-term and future connected tech at annual Executive Conference
MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG) today announced highlights of its twelfth annual business conference, MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress 2016 in Scottsdale, AZ on November 9-11, 2016. Spanning mobile & wireless, automotive, medical devices, energy, and the intersection of human-computer networks, speakers will share some of the most compelling examples of MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS)/sensors technology with an executive audience from the MEMS and sensors supply chain.
AT&T VP of Product Development for Internet of Things (IoT) Solution Cameron Coursey will offer a carrier’s perspective on technologies advancing the IoT, including low-power wide-area cellular technologies, standard radio module configurations, embedded SIMs, cloud-based data storage and virtualized networks. As part of his keynote, Coursey will explain how MEMS/sensors suppliers can play a more pivotal role in IoT applications such as asset monitoring, wearables, connected cars and smart cities.
During his keynote, Local Motors General Manager Phillip Rayer will exhort Congress attendees to fearlessly embrace co-creation and open collaboration, which he believes could change the world of transportation. As a case in point, Rayer will share his company’s experiences working with a global network of inspired innovators as Local Motors prepares the first 3D-printed autonomous car for highway-ready certification.
“Invention, co-creation and collaboration will continue to fuel the greatest achievements in MEMS and sensors,” said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS & Sensors Industry Group. “Attendees of this year’s MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress will hear how both titans of industry and nimble innovators approach technological innovation holistically — leveraging internal and external ecosystems to introduce meaningful products to market. And for the first time, they can also delve deeper into current, near-term and future MEMS/sensors solutions during breakout sessions led by both business and academic experts.”
