IEEE 5th World Forum on Internet of Things
15-18 April 2019 – Limerick, Ireland

TOP6-Sensors and Sensor Systems

Track Description

Ranging from on-body bio-sensors, to instrumented smart homes, to sensor systems for industrial use and manufacturing, to area-wide networks of environmental sensors, “Sensor Systems” are at the core of the Internet of Things ecosystem. The data generated from sensors is an essential building block in IoT for driving the decisions and actions that create value and that enable new capabilities.

This Track is focused on examining industry and technology trends for systems that sense and transduce informational, physical, biological, and chemical phenomena in relation to highly impactful IoT applications. In keeping with the themes of the World Forum the Track will specifically address the requirements, development, implementation, and operations of Sensors and Sensor Systems for the Vertical Areas chosen for the World Forum.

  • Agriculture
  • Automotive and Transportation
  • Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, and Medical Devices
  • Industrial IoT
  • Maritime IoT
  • Smart Cities and Public Safety

The Track is organized into three two hour Sessions. Through a series of presentations and panel discussions, thought leaders from industry, academia, and government will examine the following:

  • Emerging Sensor Technologies and the Potential Impact to IoT
  • Commercial Opportunities, Applications, and Market Challenges
  • Standardization efforts for Sensors and Sensor Networks

Representatives of the IEEE Sensors Council will be supporting the Track and provide opportunities for collaboration and standardization beyond the World Forum. We hope that you can join us and be part of the vigorous dialog and help build the future of IoT.
