What is TSensors?
TSensors (Trillion Sensors) is a sensor based initiative to focus on a future world with food, medical care, clean energy and a clean environment for all. Sensors will play an integral role in these four major vertical markets and the TSensors initiative aims to accelerate the commercialization of low cost sensors and new sensor types to address these applications. MEMS and silicon based devices will play a key role in these areas and over time flexible-hybrid and printed sensors will also contribute to delivering ultra-high volume solutions.
The world's biggest problems represent the world's biggest opportunities. Learn more by reading the TSensors Vision Background document which lays out the TSensors Initiative and our path to a Trillion Sensors.
Through TSensors content at all MSIG events, and dedicated TSensor Summits, MSIG continues to support and create energy and commitment toward the fruition of the TSensors vision.
Call for Papers for TSensors Vision Reviews
Singularity University identified twelve Grand Global Challenges https://su.org/about/global-grand-challenges/. Abundance360 community http://www.abundance360summit.com/ believes they represent the largest business opportunities in history, and forecasts that solutions to Grand Global Challenges will consume 45 trillion Internet nodes in mid 2030s, many with sensor arrays. These solutions are also expected to accelerate Abundance, the future World with food, medical care, clean energy and a clean environment for all.
The TSensors Initiative has converged on six areas considered to represent the biggest opportunities for sensor based systems:
- Unobtrusive health monitoring
- Food and AgTech
- Sustainable environment through novel sensing
- Clean energy generation and conservation
- Monitoring of global disasters and aging infrastructure
- Printed electronics (sensors for the above, transistors, displays, batteries, energy scavengers, etc.).
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/PAPERS
We are seeking visionary papers to characterize emerging technologies and applications in these six areas, with a potential for volumes measured in billions and trillions by 2025, thus impacting global economy.

MSIG has collated TSensors content from past TSensors events and posted it in our extensive resource library, for access by MSIG members. Click here for access.
In 2016, MSIG made TSensors an important part of its content during our flagship events. MSIG Conference Asia and MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress both include TSensors presentations with support from key players in the industry.
