14th work meeting – Remote Sensing Technologies

imec, 10 December 2013

Wireless technologies for remote sensing
gaming – automotive – food – robotics – medical – industrial 

Wireless technology is capable of much more than communication of data. Intelligent measurement and processing of the characteristics of reflected or transmitted EM waves allow us e.g. measuring the position and speed of cars (radar), interpreting the movements of hands and fingers (gesture recognition), characterising biological tissue etc.
In this session we will discuss the technologies behind these “remote sensing” applications.
The focus will be on the wireless building blocks, but we also address the necessary signal processing and interpretation.
Join us and share your vision on future applications for remote sensing.
