Overview

This presentation describes a new class of flexible and stretchable antennas. These antennas can be used as wireless sensors since they can change their shape, and thus frequency, in response to external stimuli such as strain. The basis of this technology is a micromoldable fluid metal that can be injected into microchannels of an encapsulating material.

Time: 1 PM EST (10 AM PST)
Duration: 1 hour

Overview

Coriolis mass flow meters and resonant densitometers are now being manufactured on silicon microchips. This presentation explains how these MEMS-based sensors are fabricated, packaged, and used. Recent applications – from fuel cells to drug infusion – will also be discussed.

Time: 3 PM EST (12 PM PST)
Duration: 1 hour

Overview

Energy harvesting and wireless power systems enable remote, micro-power solutions for low power applications such as wireless sensor networks. By augmenting or eliminating batteries, wireless sensors can become completely autonomous, maintenance-free, and deployed in far greater numbers than wired or battery-powered sensor networks.

Overview

The BiDi (bidirectional) Screen is an LCD-based device that combines both optical sensing and display – that is, touch and gesture interaction – into a single, thin device. Built on recent developments in the graphics and imaging research communities, the BiDi Screen may lead the way to next-generation mobile and embedded device interfaces.
