Chirp Microsystems MEMS Ultrasonic ToF Sensors: On display will be MEMS ultrasonic ToF sensors for distance, presence and proximity sensing capabilities. Chirp sensors are offered as a single chip sonar in a tiny package enabling optimal industrial design. They feature ultralow power and high precision range measurement.

Conference: Dr. Rakesh Sethi, vice president, general manager R&D, TDK U.S.A. Corporation, will present on “Future Wearables and Effective Space-Time Continuum: Monitoring of the Human Condition,” from 10:00 – 10:50 a.m. on Thursday, June 28. Dr. Sethi’s session will focus on the low adoption rate of wearables in today’s remote and clinical monitoring spaces. He will discuss the requirements for future diagnostic and predictive systems’ capabilities. This session will review several use cases of upcoming sensor systems for better disease detection modalities.

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
