Wireless Sensor Networks
& RTLS Summit Europe 2011

International conference and exhibition covering Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS) and other forms of Active RFID.

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.

Benefits of attending:

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.

The event will cover the following topics:

  • Case studies from WSN/RTLS adoptions in industry, healthcare, consumer, military, aerospace and other applications
  • Wireless/mesh networks assessed: ZigBee, 6lowPan, Wireless Hart and other protocols
  • Real Time Locating Systems assessed: Wi-Fi, Ultra Wide Band (UWB), ultra sound and other protocols
  • Energy harvesting powered wireless sensors
  • Passive RFID sensors
  • Progress with ultra low power electronics
  • Networking and system architectures, scaling, implementation challenges

Co-located Event

This event is co-located with the annual IDTechEx event "Energy Harvesting & Storage". The co-located conference will be shedding light on the latest uses and technology trends from major innovators in these sectors.
