InvenSense Inc (NYSE:INVN), the leading provider of intelligent sensor system on chip (SoC) for Motion and Sound, today announced Peter Hartwell, Senior Director of Advanced Technology, will deliver a featured speech on the Internet of Sensors at the MEMS Industry Group Conference Asia 2015, September 10 at 3:00 pm in Shanghai, China. Dr. Hartwell’s presentation will examine the accelerating growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) as devices proliferate, enabling the cloud to connect with and sense the ambient world in order to make intelligent real time decisions.
This presentation will further review how MEMS companies have the opportunity to capture additional value by delivering intelligent sensors that create a more efficient system by transmitting not just raw sensor data, but rather information and context to the cloud. IoT companies will accelerate as they focus on applications of information rather than the collection and analysis of raw sensor data. MEMS companies with sensor intelligence, system knowledge, and big data know-how, will not just participate, but thrive, in the forthcoming Internet of Sensors. (Original Source)
