7th TSensors Summit speakers explore use of MEMS and sensors to achieve “Abundance”


PITTSBURGH -- (September 24, 2015) -- Luminaries from commercial industry and top R&D organizations will explore the potential of MEMS and sensors to alleviate world hunger and pollution, use cleaner energy, and provide affordable medical care at TSensors Summit: a MEMS Industry Group Enterprise, December 9-10, 2015 in Celebration, FL.


Galvanized by forecasts of up to 100 trillion sensors by 2030 enabling “Abundance” for all, TSensors Summit speakers will examine key enabling technologies such as new optical, gas and chemical sensors for food-agricultural, environmental and health monitoring, and flexible/printed sensing and electronics advances to drive ultra high volume solutions.


“This is by far the best line-up of world visionaries and content experts since we started TSensors Summits in 2012,” said Janusz Bryzek, founder of TSensors Summits. “What we learn and discuss together at this TSensors Summit will form the basis of a TSensors roadmap outlining the opportunities, challenges and key technology milestones for the next decade. Those who are getting involved now want to make a positive difference in the world and also capitalize on the demand for sensors.”


“Advanced manufacturing, networked sensors and the Internet of Things are extremely exciting areas for technology research, development, commercialization and growth,” said M.J. Soileau, Ph.D., vice president for University of  Central Florida’s Office of Research and Commercialization. “These areas represent significant economic growth opportunities in terms of new technology advancements, manufacturing and production, goods and services and jobs.”


Event Information

TSensors Summit is made possible thanks to the combined efforts of Enterprise Florida, the University of Central Florida, ICAMR (International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research), Orlando EDC and The Florida High Tech Corridor, with additional sponsorship support from ROHM, ams, QuickLogic, Tousimis, Qualcomm, PNI Sensor and New Generation M2M Consortium.

About TSensors Summit

TSensors Summit: A MEMS Industry Group Enterprise is the first TSensors Summit hosted by MEMS Industry Group, which formed a new TSensors division in May 2015.

The inaugural TSensors Summit, held in 2012, was the brainchild of Dr. Janusz Bryzek, who was inspired by Peter H. Diamandis, founder of both X PRIZE Foundation and Singularity University, and Steven Kotler’s bestselling book, Abundance: The Future is Better than You Think (2012). With Kotler and Diamandis identifying networked sensors and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) among the core technologies that will help to end hunger on earth, provide medical care and clean energy to all, and eliminate global pollution by the mid-2030’s, Bryzek launched TSensors Summit to explore visionary efforts to accelerate a world in which everyone has access to “Abundance.

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.
