NSA1: Addressing Agtech and Food Industry Challenges with Sensors

One of the challenges of the sensors industry for agriculture and food applications is its fragmentation. We are witnessing a proliferation of environmental, optical, inertial, or gas sensors enabled by new technology developments and increased availability of AgTech and FoodTech funding. There is now a sensor for everything! It is easy to become lost in this ocean of sensor experiments, but this session has the answers to what’s missing in the “operating system” of how those sensors will collectively transform the ag-food chain from seed to mouth.

NSA2: Array of Things and the Waggle Platform: Instruments for Urban Measurement and Analysis

Based on Argonne's Waggle embedded sensing and computing platform, Array of Things is in the process of installing a 500-node sensor and deep-learning platform with the City of Chicago, with plans to expand to at least 20 more cities in 2017.  The platform is unique in providing not only sensor data collection but deep learning for in-situ analysis of camera, microphone, and sensor data in real time.

NSA3: Solid State LiDAR: Enabling Mass Adoption in Multiple Industry Sectors

Solid State LiDAR is a critical sensor for use in ADAS and autonomous driving.  Understanding how the technology works and the critical components are critical to hit the performance and cost requirements demanded by Tier 1’s and automotive OEMs.  Sensor technologies, such as silicon photomultipliers (SiPM’s), are a major part of this application and designing the system properly will yield the best performance.  This session will explore the trends in LiDAR and provide key design recommendations for building a LiDAR using the latest in SiPM technology.

NSA4: Meeting Sensor Requirements In Industry 4.0 & Smart Vehicle Applications With Extended Temperature Range Solid State Batteries

Ilika has applied its heritage of patented materials discovery with leading OEMs, to develop solid state batteries which enable the powering of autonomous IoT sensors for Industry 4.0 and Smart Vehicles. StereaxTM solid state batteries have small size (~cm2) but long life (>10 years) and, when combined with energy harvesters, provide perpetual energy to small sensing devices in difficult-to-reach, hostile and high temperature environment (operating in Extended temperature range -40 to +150°C) without the need for cabling the device or changing batteries regularly.

NSA5: New Generation of Thermal Activity Sensors Impacts Smart Building and IoT Markets

Cyrille Trouilleau will discuss how thermal activity sensors will significantly improve the ability of smart building applications and Internet of Things to sense the environment, thereby optimizing energy management (HVAC, lighting, etc.), occupant comfort, security and safety in work and public spaces. Accurately sensing and classifying human motion  data (people counting, people localization, posture classification, etc)  are key.
