Intelligent Sensing: Past, Present, and Future

Presenter: Mahesh Chowdhary, Fellow & Sr. Director, MEMS Software Solutions

While the concept of MEMS sensors has been around for more than 40 years, these tiny sensors have started making an impact on our day-to-day lives in just the last 20 years. A brief history of MEMS sensors technology will be presented with focus on how bringing algorithms as close as possible to the sensing element, enables more power-efficient devices which can contribute to a greener future. The current state-of-art of the intelligent sensors that can execute AI/ML algorithms such as Decision Trees and Neural Networks will be discussed with a perspective of use cases in consumer electronic devices, medical, automotive, and industrial applications. Trends and expected future evolution of these intelligent sensors in the era of edge computing and rapidly developing AI solutions will be presented.

MEMS Sensors Enable the Sustainable Onlife Era

Presenter: Marco Angelici, VP, MEMS, Sensors & Analog Product Marketing, Americas

With a significant increase in demand for sustainable solutions from manufacturers to end users, global players must become more responsible. From an electronic components manufacturer's perspective, we start by looking at carbon dioxide emissions and the pathway to carbon neutrality. Embedding sustainability practices in our MEMS strategy is essential to our people, our business, and society at large. As we enter the Sustainable Onlife era, with the increasing fusion of technology into our daily lives, sensors are essential in making our world a better place. Sensors are accurate, open, and so smart that they are able to self-configure and reduce power consumption thanks to optimal data processing. These attributes all contribute to providing meaningful information in an optimal and sustainable way in all the sectors as automotive, industrial, infrastructures, and personal electronics.

ST Presence Detection Technologies: TMOS (Thermal MOS) and FlightSense™

Presenters: Alexandra GOGONEA, Product Marketing Engineer, Sensors and Ruchi UPADHYAY, Technical Marketing Manager, Imaging

Introduction to ST multiple product offerings to enable presence, motion detection and ranging applications.ST presence sensors portfolio augments our customers’ products in a variety of applications, from reliable presence detection to complex gesture and motion recognition, from ultra-low power to high performance, enabling more intelligent and power efficient devices. The TMOS (Thermal MOS) is an uncooled, low-power, factory-calibrated IR sensor designed to sense presence based on the absolute temperature of objects within its field-of-view (FoV). The FlightSense™ product family ranges from low-power single-zone to multi-zone depth sensors enabling accurate depth measurements and advanced features such as passing-by, touchless control and people counting.
