Honeywell Sensors on the Agenda at MEMS Industry Congress

Honeywell Sensors on the Agenda at MEMS Industry Congress

09 March 2015

Honeywell: Sean Clay, Vice President & General Manager of Honeywell Industrial Safety Sensors, is due to deliver a keynote presentation at the European Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) Executive Congress this week in Copenhagen (10th March 2015).

The subject of the presentation is ‘The Connected Worker & how the industrial sector is enabling the commercialisation of connected technologies”. Sean will deliver a use case from Honeywell which explores the opportunities for intelligent sensors and edge devices in the Industrial Sector, the development of the Connected Worker and effective positioning strategies.

The Congress is organised by the MEMS Industry Group® (MIG), the trade association advancing MEMS and sensors across global markets. It brings together all the globally recognized MEMS and sensors leaders from the fabrication industry and algorithm and device designers to integrators and end-users.

Sean Clay, VPGM, Honeywell Industrial Sensors, commented: “Connecting intelligent sensors and edge devices creates unprecedented user value from the environments we can sense, the data we can aggregate, the decisions we can make, and the application specific solutions we can create.
“The MEMs Congress provides an ideal platform to talk about the commercialisation of sensor technologies and the value Honeywell can bring in terms of creating a pathway for connecting the installed base and engaging existing channels. We can draw on real examples in the industrial world where we are developing operating models for realising the commercial potential of a connected strategy.

“We have seen exponential growth in connected devices and applications, whilst in relative terms, it still only represents a small proportion of the total available market. The presentation will cover ways to reach and engage the customer and drive majority adoption of new technologies by anticipating the whole life cycle influencers in the value chain. The connected worker gives us a great capability for connectivity, integration and collaboration.”
