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.

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.
