MEMS Is Revolutionizing the Internet of Things

MEMS Industry Group Speakers Reach Out to Consumer-Electronics OEMs at 2014 International CES

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2013) - MEMS Industry Group (MIG)'s conference session at the 2014 International CES® -- "MEMS Sensor Fusion - Revolutionizing the Internet of Things" -- will give consumer-electronics OEMs critical information on gaining all the benefits of MEMS technology -- without the drawbacks. 'MEMS Sensor Fusion' features senior executives from companies such as ARM, Bosch Sensortec, Freescale Semiconductor, InvenSense, JAWBONE and Movea, all sharing information on how tiny micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensor fusion will play a pivotal role in creating a more intelligent and intuitive Internet of Things (IoT). 

Conference Agenda
"MEMS Sensor Fusion - Revolutionizing the Internet of Things" features:

"MEMS devices are shipping by the hundreds of millions in smartphones, tablets, video game hardware and wearables of all kinds. And they are increasingly creating a true IoT through smart data connected to the cloud. The challenge for consumer-electronics OEMs is to take full advantage of the capabilities of MEMS, in order to realize all the benefits of the IoT, while still conserving power and size in consumer applications," said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. "CE OEMs who attend our conference session on sensor fusion will learn how to maximize their investment in MEMS -- the core enabling technology of the IoT."
