Sensors have been around for many years in military, aerospace, automotive, and industrial applications. With the adoption in game controllers and smartphones just seven years ago, we have seen an explosion in their use in consumer electronics, the internet of things and wearable devices. And there is much more to come in new market segments. Steve will describe how the next-generation of sensors are creating opportunities to shape the future of products, buildings, cities, healthcare and more. He'll explore where sensing devices and applications will invade our lives for our good or maybe our detriment. Either way, opportunities abound.
