Wireless Sensor Networks and RTLS Summit Europe 2011

Start Date:21 Jun 11 End Date:22 Jun 11

WSN and RTLS will be used to automatically monitor building occupancy and climate control, oil and gas pumping, industrial manufacture processes, forest fires, traffic, assets in hospitals and other buildings and much more over wide areas over the coming years. The technology is taking off thanks to established protocols and standards, lower power electronics and better energy harvesting and storage technologies. The technologies are creating a multibillion dollar yearly industry.

This event appraises the technologies, markets and opportunities, bringing the community together. The first day of the event is dedicated to end users who will discuss their needs and experiences with the technology, followed by a day covering all the technologies. With a proven track record in organising RFID, printed electronics, WSN and energy harvesting events, this IDTechEx event will cover the complete value chain for you with assessment of the technology, user needs and the opportunities.

• Do business and network with the key players in the locating and sensing industries at the exhibition
• Discover the latest developments and implementations with WSN and RTLS during the two-day conference through case studies presented by end users
• Expert opinions will be given by end users, industry thought-leaders and researchers, giving you a comprehensive view of the industries
• Experience locating and sensing in action during local company tours
• Access the independent view at the masterclasses led by IDTechEx analysts, leaders in their fields

• Case studies from WSN/RTLS adoptions in industry, healthcare, consumer, military, aerospace and other applications
• Wireless/mesh networks assessed: ZigBee, 6LoWPAN, WirelessHART and other protocols
• Real time locating systems assessed: Wi-Fi, ultra-wide band, ultrasound and other protocols
• Energy harvesting powered wireless sensors
• Passive RFID sensors
• Progress with ultra low power electronics
• Networking and system architectures, scaling, implementation challenges

Over 50 world class speakers – some presenting exclusively for the first time here – cover the components, materials and applications in the following topics:

• Home and industrial automation – rapid roll-out
• Real time locating systems: roll out
• Keynote presentations
• Footstep harvesting for grid replacement
• Application of energy harvesters to textiles/fabrics
• Assisted living and healthcare applications
• Bringing radical changes to vehicles
• Home and industrial automation – rapid roll-out
• Significant energy storage progress
• Thermoelectric energy harvesters
• Vibration- and motion-based energy harvester
• New photovoltaic options: printed and flexible
• Ultra low power electronics and system design
• Mesh networking: roll out
• New consumer electronics applications

This event is co-located with the annual IDTechEx event Energy Harvesting and Storage. The co-located conference will be shedding light on the latest uses and technology trends from major innovators in these sectors. Attendees have access to events and the common trade show to maximise value.
