Wireless Sensor Networks, Energy Harvesting & RFID

This event was the first of a global series of events on these topics to be held in Asia. After holding successful annual conferences on those topics in Europe and North America, IDTechEx launched the first Asian version of the series in Hong Kong, part of the country that is the world's largest product manufacturer. Throughout Asia there is significant interest and development of wireless sensors, from the Ubiquitous Sensor Network (USN) program in Korea to wireless sensors already being deployed throughout Hong Kong to monitor pollution.

Tours were held to local organizations including ASTRI, the quasi government/industry research group, who co-organized the event, along with the Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LSCM) association. Indeed, ASTRI demonstrated its piezo-electric powered wireless sensor for tire pressure monitoring.

This event brought the key companies involved in energy harvesting and wireless sensor networks together, with visiting delegations from Taiwan, Mainland China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Europe and USA.

International Conference and Exhibition Assessing the Applications, Technologies and Opportunities for Wireless Sensor Networks, Energy Harvesting and RFID.
Reflecting the development of wireless sensors, using both traditional RFID-based technology and new mesh network-based technology, this event will explore wireless locating and sensing. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), otherwise known as Ubiquitous Sensor Networks (USN) will be used to automatically monitor building occupancy and climate control, oil and gas pumping, industrial manufacturing control, traffic, hospitals and much more over wide areas in the coming years. The WSN industry will grow rapidly to exceed two billion dollars in yearly sales in the next ten years and about six billion dollars during the following ten years.

Energy Harvesting (energy scavenging) is concerned with converting ambient energy into electricity for small devices. This has many exciting applications, such as devices which can run for decades - wireless sensors and switches; to powering electronics – from watches to laptops to new printed electronics.
This IDTechEx event, focusing on the technologies, uses, potential users and market forecasts brings together all of these topics.

There will be over 40 International speakers, covering the following topics:

  • End User needs and experiences, from users in oil and gas, healthcare, automotive, building automation, government, manufacturing/industrial, retail and other industries
  • Case Studies: Assessment of paybacks from Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Real Time Locating Systems
  • Energy harvesting technologies to power wireless sensors and more: electrodynamic, thermovoltaic, photovoltaic, piezoelectric, bioelectric...
  • Energy storage technologies: batteries and capacitors
  • Ultra low power electronics
  • Market and technology analysis and forecasts
