We may not realize it, but in our everyday lives, sensors are ubiquitous. They range from simple temperature sensors in refrigerators and heaters to complex electronic sensors in our smart phones, smart speakers and smart homes, our cars, trains and planes, and sometimes even our bodies.
The growing availability of wireless internet connections and the ease of use of cloud services have led to a focus on the connectivity of sensors in the past 15 years. It is comfortable for private and industrial users alike to be able to access a sensor’s data without needing to be physically connected to it by a cable.
However, more recently, users and developers of electronic sensors are reevaluating this focus on connectivity, as they are increasingly aware of the dangers associated with an easily accessible connectivity of sensors.
Our speaker, Prof. Dr. Thomas Ortlepp, is Managing Director of CiS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik GmbH, a privately organized, non-profit, business-oriented research institution and one of the leading institutes for the development of high-quality, silicon-based microsensors and microsystems, especially in the fields of MEMS and MOEMS. Since 2015, he is also Distinguished Professor at Yokohama National University in Japan, heading the Chair of Sensor Technology and Energy Efficient Microelectronics.
Prof. Dr. Thomas Ortlepp will take us on a journey through sensor development, looking at the past two decades and future trends.
