Exciting Keynotes & Panels, 200+ Exhibitors Including Major Suppliers, and Top Attendee Companies All Making for a Can’t Miss Event Experience in San Jose, California
NEW YORK, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Questex’s Sensors Converge 2022, where design innovation meets tech innovation, takes place June 27-29 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. The event will bring together the design engineering community to network, share ideas, and define the future roadmap for the sensors and electronics industry.
“A lot of advancements have happened in the last year and we’re excited to be providing the place where our community can gather to collaborate, learn, and be inspired,” said Charlene Soucy, Senior Director, Technology – Sensors & Electronics. “From our celebrity keynotes to the presence of all the major suppliers on the Expo Floor, to the record signup of top VIP attendee companies, this is an event that should not be missed.”
The Expo Hall will showcase nearly 230 exhibitors demonstrating “hot” and cutting-edge technologies and applications across 60 categories including: IoT, Wireless, Automation, Automotive, Medical, Pressure, Position, and Wearables. Major industry suppliers will have their latest tech on display including Microchip Technology Inc., Avnet, Infineon Technologies, Analog Devices, STMicroelectronics, TDK Corporation, Sensirion, Allegro MicroSystems, Digi-Key Electronics, Mouser, Synaptics, Murata, Melexis, onsemi, and more. Additionally, the Expo Hall will be home to over 40 of new exhibitors.
The Conference Program offers a dynamic educational experience comprised of technical sessions and tutorials conducted by over 100 speakers, including keynotes from Adrian Grenier, Actor, and Environmentalist, Dr. Kate Darling, leading expert in Robot Ethics and MIT Media Lab Research Specialist and an exciting Keynote Panel “Ripple Effect: Unlocking New Applications and Innovations for Radar through Industry Standardization” with technology leaders from Ford, Google, Blumio, Infineon, and the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®.
Event Features & Highlights:
Women in Sensors & Electronics will deliver a keynote from Sheryl Ehrman, Don Beall Dean of the Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering at San Jose State University and a Panel Discussion on Women in Sensors & Electronic Engineering: Leading the Tech Revolution will feature speakers from Peloton Interactive, N5 Sensors, Linux Foundation, Blumio, and T-Mobile. https://sched.co/v2vA
Hexagon and Murata are partnering to bring a live demo of an autonomous car with fully reliable, robust, and resilient sensor technologies. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience safe and reliable positioning for autonomy in real-time that can be extended to a variety of applications, including V2X, ADAS, and level 3-5 autonomous systems.
Murata will also host live demonstrations of the new 60 GHz radar module for in-cabin detection. The module is based on the TI’s AWR6843 automotive radar sensor and provides occupant detection, localization, and classification which will allow vehicle designers to meet the new requirements for Child Presence Detection and airbag deployment.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology) will be hosting a series of demos and challenges with their students and team leaders. With a theme of transportation, teams were challenged to look at the future of transportation and the movement of goods. The robots at the conference are examples of how each of the different programs met the specific challenge of their programs. Attendees will be able to see and talk to teams about their approach the challenges using different sensors for both movement and vision.
