MEMS1: Turning Wearables into Users' Daily Companions with MEMS Sensor Technology
The successful deployment of MEMS sensors into smartphones over the past 10 years would not have been possible without the ongoing effort to reduce sensor system power consumption. With the increasing development of mobile devices like smartwatches and fitness trackers, power consumption is becoming even more important. Usually, higher sensor precision and more demanding sensor use cases come along with higher power consumption. This session describes new power-saving and yet high-precision concepts.

MEMS5: High-Integrity, Fault-Tolerant Open Inertial Measurement Platform for AI-Based Vehicle Automation
Autonomous vehicles, from tiny drones to large freight trucks, all require advanced sensor inputs to localize, perceive, and navigate the environment. At the same time the combination of AI and Sensing must provide safe, hazard-free operations in challenging environments. This session describes how IMUs can be a key sensor to enable safe and reliable AI-based autonomous vehicles and presents a unique MEMS-based component architecture for an open, high-integrity, ISO26262 ASIL compliant IMU platform that is both compact and high-performance. In addition, this session presents how this component architecture can support the safety-compliant integration of additional advanced algorithms such as a Kalman Filter based GPS/INS sensor fusion algorithm directly on top of the IMU hardware processor minimizing overall system cost and size.
