Edge computing has the potential to transform and upend the way data is managed, processed, and delivered. Through edge devices that collect and take action on data on a local level, edge computing eliminates reliance on the network, achieving faster and more reliable data processing, lower costs, increased application efficiency, and enhanced safety and security.

But in what may be a massive shift to computing at the edge, questions abound: How will the move to edge computing impact sensors and the engineers who design sensors, integrate sensors into systems and end products, and implement and maintain sensors on the factory floor? How fast will this shift happen? What are the challenges and opportunities that early adopters are experiencing? Will sensors be getting smarter and, if so, how smart? What are some of the early use cases?

Through a groundbreaking research study Sensors at the Edge: Trends, Opportunities & Challenges, conducted jointly by FierceElectronics and VDC Research, this session will provide answers and actionable insights for anyone involved with sensors—from sensor manufacturers and OEMs to manufacturing companies--looking to gain, well, an edge in today’s competitive marketplace.
