September 4, 2014. The T (Trillion) Sensors Summit Munich 2014, the first T Sensors Summit in Europe, has announced its final agenda, which will feature over 40 presentations in two and a half days from September 15-17. The program includes three keynote talks from Dr. Luc Van den hove, president and CEO, imec; Dr. Flavio Bonomi, former Cisco Fellow and founder and CTO of IoX Works Inc.; and Dr. Luc Julia, vice president of innovation, Samsung Electronics.
Presentations from Bavarian and European Commission officials will highlight the impact of sensors in restructuring the future economy, and they will address in the creation of jobs as well as the importance of technical innovations in order to tackle the grand challenges of humanity, including providing sufficient food in a world with 10 billion people, offering affordable medical treatment for everybody, and generating energy without climate collapse—all the while facilitating mobility, communication, and security.
The T Sensors Summit Munich 2014 will provide its participants with an opportunity to obtain first-hand information on the major growth opportunities for all types of sensors. The venue has been designed to provide extensive networking opportunities for the attendees and the ability to meet and share information with the people who will play a major role in the creation of the Trillion Sensor Universe.
The program will feature sessions including “Trillion Sensors Roadmap,” “Sensors Market Forecast,” “Automotive and Driving Sensors,” “Portable Consumer Devices,” “Data and Security,” “Wearables and Health,” and “Flexible Electronics Manufacturing Technologies.” Leading sensor visionaries will present their findings on these rapidly emerging high-volume sensor applications. Conference attendees will include visionaries, developers, and decision makers from global academia, governments, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit companies involved in development and commercialization of sensor-based systems.
T Sensors Summit was formed in Silicon Valley in 2013 to accelerate development of sensors supporting the popular best-selling book Abundance.
Historically it has taken 30 years for new sensors technology to move from concept to prototype to commercial high volume production. The T Sensors initiative aims at producing a significant reduction of this cycle time, with the first step being T Sensors Summits to bring visibility to emerging ultrahigh volume sensor-based applications and the second step being the creation of a T Sensors Roadmap. This will focus global development and commercialization efforts to achieve “Abundance.”
T Sensors Summit Munich 2014 follows 2013 Summits at the University of California (Berkeley) and Stanford University and a 2014 Summit in Tokyo. Additional Summits are scheduled in San Diego (November 12-13, 2014) and Tokyo (December 8-9 2014), with plans for 2015 Summits in Abu Dhabi, China, and United States.
