Presentation Halle ICM - Internationales Congress Center München SEMICON EUROPA > SMART Workforce > Session 2: Technology’s Impact on Sustainable Development
11:25-11:45 Uhr | ICM - Internationales Congress Center München ICM Room 1, Ground Floor
Themen: SEMICON EUROPA
Chairman: Emir Demircan (, SEMI)
In the next decade, a tremendous growth of number of embedded IoT nodes is expected, fueled by rapid technological developments in micro- and nano-systems (MEMs/NEMs) and embedded intelligence (microcontrollers and compute engines). This technology can be easily designed to fit in many applications addressing challenges in our society. These range from environmental monitoring, reducing waste, improving food and water safety, increasing efficiency in farming and logistics, and many more.This talk will introduce the basic architecture of an IoT system and embedded connected devices. The technological challenges involved in their deployment will be summarized.The IoT ‘with a soft touch’ is an essential ingredient for a sustainable future. We designed a building box for technological experimentation. It will be provide to groups of high-school students enabling them to establish their own remote sensing applications. We aim to appeal to and engage a diverse young community. Their creativity can fuel the innovation looked for!
Liesbet Van der Perre received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from KU Leuven, Belgium, in 1992. She graduated summa cum laude with a PhD degree in electrical engineering from the same university in 1997. Dr. Van der Perre joined Imec as a senior researcher in 1997 in the wireless group. She took up responsibilities as system architect, project leader, program manager, and was the director of Imec’s Green Radio program. Currently, Prof. Liesbet Van der Perre is a full professor in the DRAMCO group (www.dramco.be) of the Electrical Engineering Department of the KU Leuven and a Lise Meitner guest professor at Lund university.Her main research interests are in energy efficient wireless communication for IoT and (beyond) 5G systems. She is (co-)author of over 350 scientific publications. Dr. Van der Perre is a member of the Board of Directors of the companies Zenitel and Crescent.
