ESC Chicago 2010, More Embedded Systems Knowledge and Fun
ESC Chicago 2010 is only a month away, and there is little time left for embedded systems enthusiasts to make their plans. Here is the latest information. The Convention will be going on June 7 – 9, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont IL, and the EXPO is June 8-9. The Sensors Expo and Conference will be held concurrently, and attendees will be able to access each others keynotes and expo floors.
The keynote speakers for ESC Chicago look interesting. Ronald Mallett, theoretical physicist and professor at the University of Connecticut, will talk about his time travel research on June 8th at 9:00 AM. Everyone would like a little more time for play, but he wants to go back to the past. Come to the conference and find out how and why.
CEO and Board Chairman of Synapse Wireless, Inc., Wade Patterson, is keynote speaker on June 9th at 9:00 AM, and will be talking about Machines that Tweet. Come to his talk and learn about Machine-to-Machine (M2M) wireless communication and its application to energy, healthcare, vehicle tracking, building automation, and asset management.
One of the many industry tracks at ESC Chicago will look at robotics and motor controls. See how embedded systems are changing the landscape in motion control software and hardware, sensors and vision systems for robotics. Embedded systems are also improving the performance and energy efficiency of motor controls.
Another industry track, medical electronics, should draw a lot of attention. They have already drawn the attention of venture capitalists, who invested almost four billion dollars in medical devices last year. Because of the nature of their use, medical electronics must be reliable. Greg Davis, Director of Engineering at Green Hills Software, will discuss the trials and tribulations of programming embedded designs using C or C++. He will provide some tools and techniques to improve reliability.
ESC Chicago promises to be enlightening, and fun this year for the embedded systems enthusiast. To find information about registration, travel and cost, check out ESC Chicago web site.
