Smart Cities Connect  Conference & Expo

MAY 16-18, 2023 | DENVER, CO



Sensorize Your City!

Monday, April 4, 1-5pm EST

Attend this session for a deep dive into the sensor hardware and software driving our smarter cities. From the sensor manufacturers themselves, hear how the sensor works, the roadmap to improvements, what's next in sensor development and how that might affect your installed systems. From the Product Integrator, hear what they are looking for in sensor capabilities and the features they are planning to introduce. Attendees should expect an open exchange of ideas and plenty of time for discussions and questions. With the rest of the week for listening to success stories from the city planners, CTOs and customers…this session is devoted to the sensor systems that have made it all possible.   

Workshop goals:

  • Establish relationships with Smart City decision makers, sensor system integrators and sensor suppliers
  • Discuss cities' sensor and system needs and opportunities
  • Inform City CTO's about sensor capabilities and road maps
  • Develop new and valuable opportunities

Planned Topics / Areas of Interest:

  • Air quality (indoor and outdoor)
  • Transportation (public transportation, Autonomous vehicles)
  • Networks/connectivity (5G, LoRa WAN, NB-loT, 3GPP, etc.)
  • Vehicles detection (EV charging, parking)
  • Resources management (electricity, gas, water, waste)
  • Safety (pedestrians, gunshot detection, etc.)

Intended audience

This workshop is intended for:

  • City & municipal officials both technical and business leaders / decision makers
  • Public sector innovation professionals
  • Public sector smart city IoT professions responsible for smart city planning / projects
  • Departmental management and technical staff
    • Digital Transformation
    • City Operations
    • Smart Mobility

About the Instructors

Tim Brosnihan, Ph.D.
Executive Director of MEMS and Sensors Industry Group, SEMI

Tim Brosnihan currently serves as Executive Director of the MEMS and Sensors Industry Group (MSIG) at SEMI. The MSIG consortia represents hundreds of companies across the world, furthering the advancement of the MEMS and sensors ecosystem critical to smart devices, big data and IoT. With a goal of connecting companies, technologists and business leaders to collaborate and innovate, MSIG is positioned to promote and grow the global MEMS and sensors supply chain, helping the industry thrive. Prior to joining SEMI, Tim held various management roles in the semiconductor and MEMS industry at Analog Devices, Qualcomm, and Cirrus Logic. He received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley, and a B.S in Mechanical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Paul Carey Ph.D.
Director MSIG, SEMI

Paul Carey joined SEMI in April this year as the Director of the MEMS and Sensors Industry Group (MSIG). He has over 20 years of experience in semiconductor device, process, and equipment optimization while working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Applied Materials, and dpiX. He was a co-founder of his own semiconductor start-up company, FlexICs, out of LLNL. FlexICs's business plan proposed to make flexible active-matrix OLED backplanes for cellphone displays. Although FlexICs failed, very similar technology is used in the flexible cellphone displays first commercialized by Samsung.

He obtained his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from UC Berkeley, and his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Stanford University.
