Today, an increasing number of pervasive and connected sensors are intelligently monitoring our daily lives and contributing to the rapid dissolution of the divide between our physical and digital worlds. This sensor revolution is creating a new layer of the Internet -- what some analysts and researchers call the "Internet of Things".

Driven mainly by innovations in power consumption, size and ubiquitous connectivity, sensors are gathering and reporting data on a variety of areas including medical, transportation, energy, security, general consumer and industrial manufacturing.

Gartner reports "By year end 2012, physical sensors will create 20 percent of non-video internet traffic."

Come discover how new companies are addressing sensor-based market opportunities.

* What sensors are currently embedded in the world, what data are they producing and how are businesses leveraging that data?
* The coming 5 years promises to hold an explosion of ubiquitously embedded devices and sensors. Where will these sensors be and what will they do? And how will the data and analytics be of value to businesses and consumers?
* What will be the primary pain points in a world characterised by sensors everywhere?
* What are the top opportunities for start ups in the space and what will business models look like?
