Sense & Locate
Reflecting the development of wireless sensors, using both traditional RFID-based technology and new mesh network-based technology, this event will explore wireless location and sensing.
Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS) encompasses RFID, USID (ultrasound identification), SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave), NFER (Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging), Infrared and UWB (Ultrawide band). The benefits of an instant and accurate account of assets and people means that RTLS is being used in manufacturing, healthcare, the military, postal and courier, leisure and retail sectors.
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) otherwise known as Ubiquitous Sensor Networks (USN) will be used to automatically monitor building occupancy and climate control, oil and gas pumping, forest fires, avalanches, the effect and likely effect of hurricanes, traffic, hospitals and much more over wide areas over the coming years. The WSN industry will grow rapidly to exceed two billion dollars in yearly sales in the next ten years and about six billion dollars during the following ten years. In addition, new this year is coverage of energy harvesting and energy storage for small electronic devices.
With a proven track record in organising RFID, Printed Electronics and Smart Packaging events, IDTechEx is applying its expertise in facilitating business to this event dedicated to locating and sensing.
