- New Division will Focus on Accelerating Development of Emerging Ultra-high Volume Sensors Supporting Abundance, mHealth and IoT
PITTSBURGH -- (May 14, 2015) -- MEMS Industry Group® (MIG), the trade association advancing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors across global markets, today announced the creation of a new TSensors division headed by TSensors Summit, Inc. Founder Dr. Janusz Bryzek. MIG’s new division will extend TSensors Summit’s visionary efforts to accelerate a world in which everyone has access to “Abundance” -- food, safe water, clean air, healthcare and other vital resources -- through the foundational use of sensors and MEMS.
“TSensors has proven itself to be vibrant and incredibly innovative, with initiatives designed to positively change the human experience through the widespread adoption of sensors,” said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. “Clearly this is an ambitious goal -- but with the success of past TSensors Summits, combined with MIG’s global membership base and organizational structure, I am confident that this goal has a greater potential for realization. We are thrilled to welcome Janusz Bryzek and the TSensors community to MIG. Together we aim to realize the vision of trillions of sensors improving the quality of people’s lives.”
“One of the greatest strengths of TSensors Summit has been our visionary speakers, who have given TED-like talks while outlining an amazing future enabled by new sensor-based systems,” said Dr. Janusz Bryzek, TSensors Summit founder, now heading MIG’s TSensors division. “By joining MEMS Industry Group -- with its depth in promoting MEMS commercialization -- we will be able to increase the momentum and breadth of TSensors’ initiatives. This will help to both accelerate solutions to major global problems through the use of sensor-based systems as well as to bring unprecedented business opportunities to member companies involved in the design and production of sensor-related products and services.”
TSensors Summit – a MEMS Industry Group® Enterprise will take place on December 9-10, 2015 in Orlando, FL. For more information and to register, please visit: http://tsensorssummit.org/orlandosummithom.html
About TSensors Summit, Inc.
TSensors Summit, Inc. was formed in 2012 by Dr. Janusz Bryzek to accelerate the development of sensors supporting “Abundance” – as defined by Peter H. Diamandis, chairman and CEO of the X PRIZE Foundation, and Steven Kotler in their bestselling book, Abundance: The Future is Better than You Think (2012). The Abundance vision is that by the mid-2030s, we will end hunger on earth, provide medical care and clean energy to all, and eliminate global pollution. Such utopian goals are made possible mainly by eight exponential technologies producing goods and services faster than the growth of global demand for them. Networked sensors are among these exponential technologies.
TSensors Summit has held six international events to date, located in UC Berkeley, Stanford University, Tokyo, Munich and San Diego, with over 200 visionary presentations in all. For more information, visit www.TSensorsSummit.org.
