Sponsor Keynote: How to Leverage the Rapid Transformation of Sensors into Edge Computing Devices
Sensors are rapidly evolving into intelligent multifaceted edge computing devices enabling real-time data for use across all industries including Industrial, commercial, medical, smart buildings and more. Bluetooth® technology is seeing rapid growth in sensor devices and is present on more IoT devices than any other communication technology. In this talk Jim Katsandres from the Bluetooth SIG (the Bluetooth standards organization) will speak on the key Bluetooth® low power technology advancements fueling its rapid adoption in non-consumer devices. This talk will cover enhanced range (greater than 1km), Angle of Arrival/Departure (AoA/AoD), mesh networking in highly challenging environments like industrial, manufacturing buildings. It will also cover the the use of Bluetooth® technology to help with the safe return-to-work by reducing the spread of Covid-19 using exposure notification, contact tracing, social distancing and process monitoring.

Women in Sensors & Electronics: Challenges & Opportunities
Despite advances in STEM programs and targeted initiatives, not enough women today are choosing—or sticking with—a technical career. Women at all levels make up a distinct minority of the technical professionals working with sensors and electronics. In short, we have much more to do to truly achieve diversity in the workplace and to retain and promote women in STEM-related positions. This panel consists of exception women working in the field of sensors who will discuss how we can expand access for young women and mentor, advocate and serve as role models to help women that have entered the workforce thrive in their careers.

Tech Talk: Delivering Pandemic Control: How ams Innovation in Spectral Sensing Technology is Improving Rapid Access, Accuracy, and App-to-Cloud Connectivity for COVID-19 Control
The capability to do large-scale, fast, and highly reliable testing at the point of care (POC) is key to overcoming the current pandemic situation. ams is driving these efforts forward through developing spectral readout technology for Lateral Flow Immunoassays for antigen (measuring saliva) and antibody (measuring blood) detection. Since its initial development in the 1980s, Lateral Flow Test (LFT) technology has gained wide acceptance because the tests are compact and easy to use in a simple, cost-effective design. Vitally, they provide results within minutes without the need for laboratory equipment. However, their sensitivity as well as the possibility to provide deeper, quantitative results is limited when analyzed by the naked eye.
ams developed a spectral readout module, that addresses these challenges and drawbacks. Through using spectral sensing, LFT test lines can now be objectively measured by a multi-channel sensor with spectral resolution, adding sensitivity and quantitative capabilities to the system without compromise on size, simplicity and fast, point of care results. In addition to improved measurement performance and user handling, the data can be digitized via an app and uploaded to the cloud, and therefore can become part of a pandemic monitoring system.

The Spectacular Sensors Smackdown
Engineers are the original DIY’ers, with the know-how and creative genius to build their own gadgets—from highly practical devices to just plain old silly and fun creations. Many of these inventions showcase sensors and switches in action, from an animatronic graveyard display for Halloween to a machine that uses motion detection to dispense pet treats.

We invite you to tell us about the most clever gadget you’ve ever built. Wow us, and you could be named a contestant in our first annual Spectacular Sensors Smackdown. In rapid-fire, five minute video demonstrations, five participants will demonstrate their DIY gadgets, describing how they work and the underlying technologies used. Event attendees will vote online in real time for their favorite gadget, with the winner taking home a prize!

Participants for the competition, aired online, will be selected on the basis of novelty and engineering ingenuity of their designs. Five candidates will be asked to demo their gadgets in five-minute videos for the live competition.
