Engineering professionals are gathering June 6 and 7 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, for the 2012 Sensors Expo & Conference, for new technologies in sensors and sensors-related industries. The event has more than 150 exhibitors, more than 60 technical education sessions, and experts and innovators, delivering keynote addresses. ARM and SENSEable City Laboratory are providing keynote address.

Exhibitors include ROHM, Epson, Texas Instruments, Freescale , Analog Devices, and PCB Piezotronics, among many others, according to Wendy Loew, Group Show Director. "Sensors are the building blocks of many technologies, including Energy Harvesting, Big Data & Cloud, MEMS, Wireless and more, and we are excited to continue to be the venue where these foundations are showcased."

Wednesday’s keynote is Assaf Biderman, Associate Director of SENSEable City Laboratory. As a research group, SENSEable City, explores the "real-time city" by studying the increasing deployment of sensors and networked hand-held electronics, as well as their relationship to the built environment. The presentation is: "A Human-Computer-City Interface" and present a view of the role sensors and other data capturing methods can play in making new connections between people and the built environment as a way to address some of today's more pressing urban challenges. 

On Thursday, June 7, 9-10 a.m., Willard Tu, Director of Embedded, ARM will deliver the Day Two Keynote, "Sensors, Networks and Software: Innovating the Internet of Things." Willard Tu will discuss the idea of connecting billions of products to the Internet. This keynote examines the trends in Sensors, Networks, and Software, the catalysts that will bring about the Internet of Things. These three elements have revolutionized smartphones, mobile computing and soon industrial, medical, security, and other embedded applications.

Exhibit floor includes key technology focused areas, such as the Energy Harvesting Pavilion, MEMS Pavilion, Big Data & Cloud Pavilion, and Wireless Pavilion, and hundreds of products and services in various exhibits. Silver Sponsors of the event are Epson Electronics America and ROHM Semiconductor who will join hundreds of other industry leaders including Texas Instruments, Analog Devices, Libelium, TDK Group, Sensirion, Hoffman & Krippner, HBM, Inc, PCB Piezotronics, and more.

Conference: On Tuesday, June 5 from 9am - 5pm there will be three in-depth symposia: MEMS in the Mainstream: Commercialization and Product Realization-Leveraging the MEMS Infrastructure; Energy Harvesting for Powering Sensors-Tutorials; and Smart Sensors Systems Design. The general conference program will be held on Wednesday and Thursday and is dedicated to exploring the most up-to-date innovations in sensor technology, including Applied Sensing, Big Data & Analytics, Energy Harvesting, Novel Approaches to Measurement & Detection , MEMS, Mobile Sensing, RFID/M2M, Sensor & System Design, and Wireless Sensing. 

Special Events include a passport program, networking breakfast, mix and mingle, and awards.

Mobile app: Sensors Expo, in conjunction with mTribeApps, introduced the first Sensors Expo Mobile App, an interactive, free and downloadable smartphone application designed to enhance the tradeshow experience and provide valuable Sensors Expo information on the go. It is in the Android market and Apple iTune store: search "Sensors Expo Show."

Sensors Expo Connection is a separate networking tool developed by ARI, the event's registration vendor.
