The automotive sensor market is expected to reach $37 billion by 2022. Automotive sensors detect, measure, and transmit data within and between vehicles to maintain high performance, increase safety and automate driving. While today’s vehicles have as many as 700 significant electronic components, this tally could exceed 2,000 once active driver assistance and vehicle automation technologies proliferate. Key companies including Google, Tesla Motors, Facebook and Apple, along with all major automobile and truck manufacturers, are focused on the research and development of driverless cars, further expanding the need for advanced automotive sensors including imaging, radar, LiDAR, pressure, temperature, navigation, communications and secure data devices. We will explore the wide range of automotive sensors and critical factors affecting growth opportunities including sensor fusion.

Active optical devices, photonic integrated circuits and emerging imaging solutions that leverage RF or Hall effect technologies are advancing the role that imaging plays across almost every imaginable market and industry. Like other sensors, imaging devices need high resolution, linearity, low power consumption, network security and dependable performance. This session will explore ways that new device designs, photonic integration, silicon photonics and III-V hybrids are advancing state-of-the-art performance while indium phosphide (InP), VCSELs, gallium arsenide (GaAs) and other key technologies will continue to play significant roles in near- and long-term sensor evolution.

Advancements in low-power, compact wearables that incorporate sensors, actuators, antennas and smart textiles are significantly impacting the evolution of healthcare, diagnostic and treatment tools. When melded with inexpensive computing SoCs, data storage and wireless access, the road has been paved for low-cost and unobtrusive health monitoring and treatment systems built around advanced sensor technologies. The global medical sensors market is estimated to reach $15.01 billion by 2022, with the disposable/ingestible medical sensors market expected to reach $12.3 billion by 2025. We will explore the impact of sensor technologies across major sectors of healthcare as governments, industry and universities focus massive resources on exciting new ways to diagnose, treat and prevent diseases.

Sensing technologies owe much of their growth to networking and internet connectivity including the burgeoning (IoT) market. While the IoT is just beginning, the Industrial IoT (IIoT) is already reshaping business on the manufacturing floor as part of ‘Industry 4.0’ movements. This session will explore wireless networking standards / protocols, licensed and unregulated spectrum, and the success stories that can lead to optimal networking choices for new IoT / IIoT sensors. We will also delve into ways that Industrial IoT applications rely upon advanced sensors to automate factory and industrial operations, ensuring safety, increasing productivity and providing a wealth of data that enables fast-to-market strategies, cost reduction, waste elimination and continuity between manufacturing centers regardless of their physical proximities.

Advanced sensing technologies play increasingly critical roles in not only the operational performance of advanced aircraft and aerospace vehicles, but throughout planning, development, fabrication and flight test stages. New composite materials, hybrid structures, and factory automation are driving the demand for advanced sensor technologies that can make precise calibration, measurement and data analytics a seamless and coordinated process across decentralized international production facilities. We will explore sensor technologies that support these requirements to satisfy wide-ranging needs through assessing critical variables (e.g., air pressure, temperature, laminar flow, heat dissipation, fuel consumption, etc.) to ensure passenger and crew safety while meeting high performance standards.

Sensor nodes dependent on wireless connectivity face a common yet critical problem: battery lifetime. While energy harvesting cannot benefit every wireless sensing scenario, it is being successfully applied in industrial and consumer applications. Converting available energy from a variety of sources to electricity provides an alternative to frequently changing batteries or complicated low voltage wired solutions that negate the benefits of wireless connectivity. When paired with advanced thin-film batteries, capacitors or emerging power storage technologies, energy harvesting can significantly extend operational lifetimes for highly efficient power management. We will explore popular energy harvesting techniques including photovoltaic, thermoelectric, piezoelectric, electrodynamic and wind resources.
