Abstract

Mobile phones and devices are packed with more and better sensors every year. I want to look at what sensors are available today in the devices, but which will be available in the near future. Then explore ideas like; what if there was sensor "X" in billions of devices, how would that affect our daily-lives?

I want to run the parallels between human senses (our wet-ware sensors) and how the state of today's hardware matches biological life pretty well. Are they on par with humans or have they already surpassed today's homo sapien? Where there are gaps, I'd predict are the next generation sensors, but we'll have to discuss and see.

In many ways the Internet is a large biological system and more sensors are added every day to make it even more aware.

This session looks at some of the interesting abilities of todays sensors, but also into the future of possibilities and new sensors in store for our ubiquitous devices.

The abstract seems too much... well, abstract. The topic is interesting but maybe you could be a little more specific about what would you talk.

The topic is surely one of my favorites and I'm looking forward to this topic, nonetheless it would be nice to see some more detail on the abstract...

As an electronics enthusiast, I am very interested in sensor technology. A little more detail would have been better, but I'll go anyway. I'm curious now...

I like the area but the abstract as is is too vague. Are you just gonna discuss the current state of things and what's to come or do you have ideas to bring to the table, prototypes, etc?

Thanks everyone. I'll flush-out the abstract a bit more with what I am thinking and what I plan to cover.

I want to look at what sensors are available today in the devices, but what are in the near future along with some what if there was sensor "X" in billions of devices, how would that affect our daily-lives.

I want to run the parallels between human senses (our wet-ware sensors) and how the state of today's hardware matches biological life pretty well. Where there are gaps, I'd predict are the next generation sensors, but we'll have to discuss and see.

The SAVE/UPDATE SESSION feature isn't working right now, but when it is available I'll certainly add more details.

I think sensors are coming more and more a big part of mobile devices. Having insight on how you can use them is really a plus. Looking forward for this.
