OS1: Computational Sensors: What’s After Pixel Pushing?
Video traffic is the major contributor to the growth of both wireline and wireless IP traffic, including the Video IoT. 5G and Multi-Access Edge Computing bring processing to the network edge, but developers have another option, computation sensing, which evolves beyond pixel pushing. This session covers computational sensors, applications, and technologies, with an emphasis on the system-level benefits from fusing sensors, processing, and software. This session provides definitions, use cases, market outlook, trends, and drivers/inhibitors.

OS2: Derivative Optical Technologies: Potential of Integrated Photonics Beyond Telecom
Optical (on-chip) telecommunication led the development of ever more mature, mainly Si-based, integrated photonic technology platforms. This session introduces a targeted diversion of these platforms to enable wave-based sensing and actuation in (quasi-)optical domain. It demonstrates novel systems for Life-Sciences, Flat optics, Imaging, Spectroscopy, Optical beam forming for LiDAR or THz RaDAR, that redefine the typical trade-offs between form factor, performance and price point.

OS3: Photometric Measurement Development Challenges & System Considerations: A Case Study in Liquid Analysis
Liquid sensing and analysis applications using optical methods, including those based on absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence, and backscatter, share several common challenges. System develop encompasses mechanical, optical, electrical, and software integration with the need for rapid prototyping. Technical challenges and mitigations techniques such as ambient light rejection, noise reduction, and calibration are presented. This session discusses how these concerns were addressed during the development of a photometric measurement platform and how the concepts can be extended to varied applications in environmental measurement, safety, and smart buildings.

OS4: Innovations in Spectral Sensing
Spectroscopy applications have typically been reserved for markets where large capital expenditures of expensive lab equipment are necessary for daily operations. In recent years, innovations in miniaturizing sensor technology has opened up new market opportunities for spectroscopic applications. Cost & size of equipment has been reduced where today, a handheld spectrometer provides nearly the same measurement capabilities as expensive benchtop laboratory equipment. This session examines recent innovations in spectroscopy, new use cases never before realized, from farmers analyzing grains to pharmaceutical companies managing drug fraud within their value chains, and more.
