I think by 2018 the projected MEMS sensors market of $12.2 billion will still be dominated by mobile phones and hand-held computing devices like tablets BUT there will be significant growth from energy harvesting devices like Piezoelectric MEMS. I believe MicroGen is in this space targeting vibrational energy harvesting.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
