MEMS2: Emerging MEMS & Sensor Technologies to Watch
This session provides an executive summary of the most noteworthy MEMS and sensor technologies emerging from the research world. Most of today's blockbuster MEMS products originated from academic research, and we expect that pattern to continue. The criteria for noteworthiness are: offers a solution to a known or anticipated commercial market need, has a path to scalable manufacturing, and is a technology game-changer. 

Nearly all of the technologies to be presented will need many more years of intensive development and probably more than $100M in investment to reach full commercialization. Nevertheless, they each hold potential to create new waves of activity and opportunity in the MEMS industry.

EM3: Layer IIoT Security on a Hardware Root of Trust

This session discusses the importance of providing layered security co-located with fundamental device content for better overall endpoint protection and resilience. An important aspect of this is migrating mutable software roots of trust to hardware roots of trust. A strong case can be made for a hardware core root of trust for measurement (CRTM). While often existing as a software RoT, the CRTM can be vulnerable to numerous attacks and if compromised the whole system becomes "rooted" and untrustworthy. Hardware roots and layered security can mitigate these attacks.

MEMS4: Creating High-Resolution Environmental Insights Using Sensor Networks and Big Data
According to the World Health Organization, poor air quality affects 92% of people worldwide. Air quality measurements do not exist in many regions of the world. For places with measurement, existing networks do not provide information on the variability of pollution in neighborhoods and at the street level. Building on advances in small sensors, cloud computing, and big data analysis, Aclima has developed a next-generation sensor network platform that enable wide scale monitoring of the quality of our environment. Recent work using Aclima’s mobile platform in California has demonstrated that air pollution is hyper local, significantly varying over the length scale of a city block. The type of data made possible by large-scale sensing has the potential to be transformative, enabling researchers, public health experts, and policy makers to better understand and quantify the impact of hyper local pollution on communities and to make better decisions on where to focus efforts to improve human health and combat climate change.

This session introduces attendees to this standard low-power, wide-area networking technology. Attendees learn about the technology/specification, the community around it, and optimal use cases. The instructor compares LoRaWAN to competing and complementary technologies and provides insights into technical implementations and best practices for bringing LoRaWAN-enabled products to market.

FW1: Future Wearables and Effective Space Time Continuum: Monitoring of Human Condition
Despite a promising start, the adoption of wearables in today’s remote and clinical monitoring remains abysmal, with utilization at only 2-3%. The doctor-patient gulf remains wide largely due to inability of today's technology to accurately localize, listen to and learn the harmony of the human system. The requirements for future diagnostic and predictive systems’ capabilities will be discussed. This session reviews several use cases of upcoming sensor systems for better disease detection modalities.

The growth of low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) designed for the IoT has uncovered pertinent issues with existing connectivity. 2G and 3G have been perfect for the majority of M2M communications, but ‘sunsetting’ these bands will push traffic onto innovative LTE technologies. Non-cellular LPWANs have huge potential benefits, but a lack of standardization is stunting global rollout, provoking an open-source response. This session discusses the various options available, highlighting the pressing need for future-proofed connectivity.

FW4: Printed, Flexible, Stretchable and Functional Fabric Sensors: Opportunities for Wearables, IoT, and Other High-Volume Applications

In recent years, there has been an exponential growth in the field of flexible, printed, wearable and organic large-area electronics and sensors. These new electronics and sensors are fabricated on flexible plastic or paper substrates as well as on/in fabrics, which offer advantages such as mechanical flexibility, shape conformity, light weight and low profile. The judicious use of these substrates/carrier platforms enables low-cost and high-speed manufacturing of devices over large areas using printing technologies in a Roll-to-Roll production line. Targeted applications include wearables, environmental monitoring and eHealth.

Recently, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) awarded $75M to FlexTech Alliance to establish and manage a San Jose-based facility to create a Manufacturing Innovation Institute for Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE MII). Additionally, the recent award of $75M, also by the US DoD, with $250M in matching grants from regional governments, industry and academia for the creation of a research and development consortia, Advanced Functional Fabrics of America (AFFOA), headed by MIT for the development of sensors and other electronic functions has validated the potential of this technology to create “smart fabrics” for consumer and military wearable applications.

This session provides an overview of printed, flexible, stretchable, functional fabric sensors and accompanying electronics and the applications that they are currently enabling as well as their future application opportunities. Examples from current suppliers as well as highlights from leading international research organizations will be addressed.

In addition to these sensors, this session also addresses the challenges of their integration with other functional element of basic Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable applications and the manufacturing issues to create these heterogeneous and hybrid solutions from both a batch mode and continuous process. Concluding presentation topics include barriers to the successful commercialization and recommended strategies for monetization opportunities of these technologies.
