EP1: Advanced In-Situ Sensors & Electronics for Smart Energy Storage
The use of lithium cells is growing at a rapid rate, but it is well known that there are reliability and safety concerns with the technology. A battery management system monitors the state of health by externally measuring characteristics such as current, voltage and temperature. However, this approach fails to identify pre-failure events. This session discusses key challenges of in-situ sensing, review architectures and describes a practical approach for constructing intelligent cells.

EP4: Autonomous Low Power Monitoring with Nano Power Sensor
To better ensure the reliability of industrial equipment, sensors are used to monitor environmental conditions such as voltage fluctuations, unwanted vibrations, etc. With the increase of these sensors, there is a driving need for circuits that are lower power, lower cost, smaller size, and autonomous. This session addresses how to design condition monitoring circuits using a nanopower sensor monitor and how to optimize these circuits for power, cost, size, and autonomy.

EP5: Boosting the Energy of Your Edge Devices
In today’s (industrial) IoT world, the trend is to move the intelligence away from the cloud and closer to the source of the data. This intelligence will improve security and reliability, reduce latency and bandwidth usage and reduce maintenance cost. This is the edge computing. As edge devices usually rely on scarce energy resources, we believe that the advance of edge computing will be possible only if an offer of extremely-low power and high performances processing and sensing ICs exists or edge devices are able to harvest energy from the environment to increase their energy budget, eventually removing their need for batteries. In this session, attendees  learn how to boost the energy and increase the computing power of their devices to be ready for the edge computing revolution.
