Charlene Soucy, Senior Director, Sensors Converge said, "We have received an overwhelming positive response from the design engineering community about uniting at Sensors Converge. After a long interruption due to the pandemic, both engineers and exhibitors are ready to network, learn and share ideas in-person. And for those unable to attend in-person, we have created a free Virtual Pass for the engineers to get the content they need and reconnect digitally."

Sensors Converge offers a dynamic educational experience comprised of technical sessions and tutorials conducted by subject matter experts and speakers with practical experience. Featuring engineers sharing real stories and technology applications, the program will cover tracks including Embedded Technology, Autonomous Technologies, Industrial & Environmental Sensing, Intelligent Sensing, IoT & Wireless, 5G, Energy Harvesting, Interoperability, COVID-19 Technologies, IIoT, MedTech, and Smart Buildings & Cities. The full event schedule can be viewed here.

Sensors Converge Highlights

  • The Expo Hall will showcase nearly 200 exhibitors demonstrating "hot" and cutting-edge technologies across 60 categories including: Internet of Things, Wireless, Automation, Automotive, Medical, Pressure, Position, and Wearables. Over 40 of the exhibitors are new to Sensors Converge.
  • 100+ speakers from NASA JPL, Intel, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, 219 Design, PARC, Whirlpool, John Deere, Peloton Interactive will take the stage.
  • Women in Sensors and Electronics panel will focus on diversity and inclusion and include speakers from Peloton Interactive, Root Ventures, Maxim Integrated, and Edge Analytics.
  • The Chip Shortage panel on the Converge Main Stage will feature experts discussing the seemingly never-ending chip shortage that is hurting more than just car production.
  • Interactive Tech Zones & Demos on the expo floor offers an exclusive focus on Sensors, Autonomous & Automotive, Embedded, IoT & Wireless, MEMS, and Emerging Technologies, as well as demos of new and innovative products.
  • Attendees will see some of the newest and never before seen touchless tech on display in the

Theater of Touchless Technology, including temperature scans, robots, gesture displays and more.

  • The Converge Main Stage both allow attendees to see sensing technologies in action – both in person and virtually. Plus, Fierce Electronics Editor, Matt Hamblen, will be keeping us up-to-date on the latest happenings via interviews at the News Desk.
  • Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in Dev Kit and other cool tech giveaways on the Sensors Converge Main Stage. Avnet, PowerFilm, Infineon, and other exhibitors will be participating.
  • The Career Connection, sponsored by Randstad, is the central meeting spot to advance the careers of sensors and electronics professionals.
  • The Smart Sensor Challenge from PICMG allows attendees to bring a live analog sensor to PICMG’s stations to make the sensor smart.
  • In-Person Networking allows attendees to catch up with colleagues and make new contacts through networking opportunities, including roundtables, outdoor lunches, meetups and more. Combine In-Person Networking and the Meetup Lounge for a dedicated area on the Expo Floor where peers and colleagues reconnect to discuss similar interests and design engineering trends. The attendee matchmaking via the event mobile app, Brella, allows attendees to select their networking topics and connect with other attendees that have similar interests.

"In the last few months all kinds of communication devices, enabled by sensors, have been instrumental to keep us connected. Nevertheless, we have missed the face-to-face interaction with customers and prospects. We are therefore excited to finally again contribute to in-person events, presenting our newest sensing solutions in the areas of AIoT and wearables at Sensors Converge," said Marcellino Gemelli, Sr. Director of Global Business Development, Bosch Sensortec.

"Analog Devices is thrilled to be back in-person with the sensors and electronics community at Sensors Expo 2021! The diverse group of engineers that this event brings together is truly special – as the best minds from many different focus areas come together to share ideas, best practices and network to pave the way for the future trends impacting our industry," added Carrie Diforio, Global Events Manager, Analog Devices.

Sensors Converge offers two registration options to attend in-person, the All-Access Pass provides access to the entire event and the Expo Hall Pass offers access to the Expo Hall only. Virtual Passes are free. For more information, visit: https://www.sensorsexpo.com/register.
