In a time when businesses and consumers are increasingly looking to translate the physical world into digital format, the proliferation of small, durable and sophisticated sensors is playing an expanding role in robotics, artificial intelligence, IoT, electronics, and healthcare applications. Significant progress in Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and Nanotechnology have enabled the manufacturing of a new generation of sensors, which opened up a whole host of markets and opportunities yet to be fully explored. In this respect the aim of “1st International Symposium on Micro/Nano Sensors for Healthcare and Smart City” is to invite global professionals from academia and industry and to discuss the novel emerging sensor technologies and their deployment in real-life applications.
During the event, the topic “Hybrid Micro and Nanosensors” together with several types of sensors (including the one designed in the frame of I-MECH) was presented and demonstrated by Mr. João Gaspar (I-MECH partner from INL). In addition to this, in the INL booth, it was shown and distributed I-MECH flyer, as well as several sensors demos to be incorporated into systems.
