ADAS Sensors 2017

April 13, 2017 - 3:28pm
ConferenceWednesday, May 17, 2017 to Thursday, May 18, 2017Detroit, Michigan Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) require vision and range sensors to accurately determine situational assessment and action implementation. Common sensing technologies for ADAS such as video, radar, LIDAR, ultrasonic and infrared (IR) are being increasingly integrated by the OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. For example, market analysts project the use of forward looking cameras going from 30 million units in 2014 to nearly 100 million by 2019. Range sensors are based on radar, or more recently LIDAR technologies, which are projected to be available in production vehicles within the next two years. High-end vehicles can accommodate the cost of today’s advanced systems, which can include eight radar sensors, as well as several video cameras. Extending these systems to higher volume vehicles will pose challenges in cost versus performance tradeoffs. Furthermore, ongoing technology and integration developments in many ADAS application areas are increasing the design alternatives. OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers need to continually evaluate their existing systems and decide how and when to integrate the newest options. Companies that are getting involved also need to consider new technologies and latest advancements in their design. With the US Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) planning to include advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) Star Rating process potentially as soon as 2019 and European safety regulators to start grading new cars in 2018, ADAS sensing will get even greater attention in the very near future. Conference Topics Focusing on recent developments in ADAS sensing, this extensive conference will provide attendees in-depth presentations from industry experts, as well as networking and discussion opportunities, about the latest ADAS enabling technologies and applications with topics such as: Vehicle vision alternatives Solid state LIDAR for production vehicles Radar vs. LIDAR -- are the options changing? Transitioning vision sensing from luxury to high volume vehicles High resolution video cameras / improving the resolution of video cameras Infrared (IR) cameras for both the visible and IR spectrum The role of ultrasonic sensors in ADAS Sensor fusion, as well as dealing with image processing and the vast amount of information from vision and ranging sensors with advanced algorithms and computing power Sensing/seeing beyond 200-300 meters (GPS and cloud data) 5G cellular and dedicated short range communications (DSRC) impact on ADAS

MEMS Manufacturing 2017

April 13, 2017 - 1:08pm
ConferenceWednesday, August 2, 2017 to Thursday, August 3, 2017Santa Clara, California MEMS manufacturing is a key enabler for the production of advanced sensors and actuators used in such applications as IoT, wearables, autonomous vehicles, robotics, digital health, precision agriculture, smart home, environmental monitoring, and many others. According to MEMS Journal research, the MEMS market will reach an “inflection point” in the 2018-2019 time frame which will change the economics of production to dramatically reduce costs and, therefore, significantly increase the utilization of MEMS devices throughout major industrial segments. Given this “inflection point” and sharp reduction in production costs, can the MEMS market grow to $100 billion and 1 trillion MEMS devices per year by 2025? We believe this can happen. Already, the MEMS market has been one of the few “shining stars” among its peers in the overall semiconductor market sector, and the economy on the whole. Currently, the total market for MEMS devices is around $11-12 billion per year and it is expected to grow at 12 to 15% for the next few years. So what are the next-generation MEMS manufacturing technologies? And what are the MEMS applications that are driving the need for new fabrication techniques? These are the key questions that will drive the discussion at this seminal event, MEMS Manufacturing 2017, which will feature talks from the leading MEMS business and technology experts. The future is bright for MEMS -- attend this event to identify emerging MEMS manufacturing technology and application trends, exchange ideas, form new companies, and network with your industry peers!

Workshop on Formalizing Manufacturing Processes for Structured Sustainability Assessments

April 6, 2017 - 1:28pm
Workshop/TrainingSunday, June 4, 2017 to Thursday, June 8, 2017Los Angeles, California The ASME 2017 MSEC conference will host an NSF-sponsored workshop and competition on the modeling of manufacturing processes using a new ASTM standard format. Competitive travel stipends of up to $1500 will be offered to 15 workshop participants including the 8 competition finalists. This workshop focuses on the modeling of manufacturing processes for system-level sustainability assessment. Any process type - including batch, continuous, and discrete event - is acceptable. Models can span from traditional scale down to nanoscale processes and be based on mechanical, electrical, chemical, biochemical, and bio technologies. Since sustainability is a balance of competing objectives including cost and time as well as environmental considerations, many different types of process performance metrics may be considered. In addition, the use of the models for system-level sustainability performance is encouraged. Formal methods for acquiring and exchanging information about manufacturing processes will lead to consistent characterizations and help establish a consolidated repository for reuse of these models. Standard methods will ensure effective communication of computational analytics and sharing of sustainability performance data. The purpose of this workshop is to (1) familiarize the research community with recent standards from ASTM E60 Subcommittee on Sustainable Manufacturing for modeling manufacturing processes, including the recently published ASTM E60 Standard Guide for Characterizing Environmental Aspects of Manufacturing Processes; (2) provide an opportunity for participants to put those standards into practice in modeling processes of their own interest, and to share experiences in applying the standards; and, (3) provide a source of candidate models to populate an extensible repository of reusable manufacturing process models being developed by NIST and its academic partners. The recently published ASTM E60 Standard Guide for Characterizing Environmental Aspects of Manufacturing Processes is the primary source for definition of the standard format. The standard is summarized in the ASME’s Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering paper: “Standard Representations for Sustainability Characterization of Industrial Processes (link is external)” and is available through ASTM for competition participants.
