Each day of Sensors Innovation Week Fall will feature six hours of curated content from more than 30 speakers sharing their insights and experiences through keynotes, tech talks, breakout sessions, panels and more across three tracks: IoT & Wireless, Industrial, Smart Sensors, MEMS and Next Gen Innovations. 

Keynote speakers include:

  • Dr. Kathleen Gallagher Boggs, Capability Integration Strategy Lead, NASA presenting “From Low Earth Orbit to the Moon, Mars and Beyond: Capabilities Needed for NASA’s Human Exploration Campaign”
  • Reinier Van der Lee, CEO, Vinduino LLC presenting “Design Evolution of an Open-Source, Affordable Crop Optimization Technology”
  • Mehdi Bentanfous, CEO, Kinexon NA presenting “Using Sensor Technology to Mitigate the Spread of COVID-19 in Sports Leagues”
  • Phil Cheetham OLY, PhD., Director of Sport Technology and Innovation, United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee presenting “Turning Technology into Gold for Team USA at the Olympics & Paralympics”
  • Dimitrio Damianos, Technology Market Analyst, Yole Development presenting “The General Pervasiveness of MEMS Sensors on Everyday Life & a Glimpse in the Human-Machine Voice Interface”

The virtual event will also offer networking opportunities and a Sensors Resource Center with relevant content from event sponsors.

Event highlights include:

  • Best of Sensors Awards. Outstanding innovations that are driving improvements and transforming the industry will be showcased during this virtual awards ceremony. This year’s program highlights the best innovations, technologies, and individuals in the sensors industry.
  • Women in Sensors & Electronics. Despite advances in STEM programs and targeted initiatives, not enough women today are choosing—or sticking with—a technical career. Women at all levels make up a distinct minority of the technical professionals working with sensors and electronics. This session will discuss how to achieve diversity in the workplace and to retain and promote women in STEM-related positions.
  • The Spectacular Sensors Smackdown. In quick five-minute videos, engineers who have created gadgets using sensors will present a brief overview of their invention and vie to convince attendees of its design ingenuity. Winners will be determined by audience voting.
