Sensors Midwest Unveils 2017 Conference Highlights

Sensors Midwest, the region’s only event dedicated to sensors & sensor technologies and sister show to the national Sensors Expo & Conference, unveiled the exciting conference lineup for this year’s event. Hosted October 3-4, 2017 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, the annual event will feature three compelling keynote sessions and three all-new half-day workshops dedicated to innovative sensor applications in Health & Medical, Automotive & Autonomous Vehicle Sensors, and Real-Time Operating Systems. By bringing together thousands of engineers, engineering professionals, and scientists who are looking for firsthand access to the latest sensor advancements, Sensors Midwest is the region’s best opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.

During the 2017 event, attendees will hear from three unique keynote speakers. Tuesday morning, Nimbelink will present a keynote on their journey from a component to a solutions company, followed by Charlie Catlett, Director, Urban Center for Computational Data, University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory who will a discuss how sensors and embedded computation can enable cities to make can better use of existing data and provide insight into urban challenges. On Wednesday morning, Supratik Guha, Director of the Nanoscience and Technology Division and the Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne National Laboratory will give his keynote address highlighting how sensors and cyberphysical sensing networks can be leveraged for water and agriculture use.

As the growth of the sensors market continues to rapidly expand, understanding the newest advances in the industry, trends, and applications of sensors is paramount. Sensors Midwest is the only event in the region with a technical program covering 100 percent sensor technologies. Featuring compulsory educational sessions across three tracks Applications, Software Systems, and Technology; full-day IoT University; multiple networking opportunities; and a packed Expo Floor with an anticipated 75 exhibitors, Sensors Midwest will assemble the area's greatest technology leaders to discuss new and innovative ways to jump start solutions to today’s sensor challenges.

David Massner, Senior Mechanical Engineer at Molex and a 2016 Sensors Midwest attendee noted, "Sensors Midwest was a great way to connect with others in the industry and see the availability of products that I would've otherwise not been exposed to. As a result of contacts I made there in 2016, we have already begun a business relationship with a new company that manufactures sensors that fit our current need."

Innovative exhibitors such as Anaren, Cognex, Coto Technology, Libelium, LORD Sensing Microstrain, Nimbelink, Powercast, Renesas, and TT Electronics will be onsite for the 2017 event showcasing the latest advancements in sensor technology.
