SYMPOSIUM 5: Hey Network, It’s Me, Sensor: Opportunities & Challenges in a Connected World

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Internet of Things is giving rise to unprecedented amounts of sensor data, which is poised to transform nearly every aspect of our lives from smarter cities to more efficient manufacturing plants and better energy management to health and wellness applications. Not only is there a challenging set of requirements with respect to functionality, cost, power, connectivity, and physical dimensions of these IoT devices and systems, there are connectivity and networking issues and concerns that are new and unfamiliar to engineers that work with sensors and electronics. These include power management, RF interference, data synchronization, and competition among resources for bandwidth access. This symposium gives design engineers:
  • insights and advice on how address these issues
  • strategies for managing the myriad decisions and trade-offs in IoT systems design
  • insights on how to select system components including sensors and wireless communications options
  • guidance on taking their designs from concept to commercialization faster and more effectively
Organized and moderated by FierceElectronics.
