Wearables have started to be used in consumer (e.g. smart watches and fitness trackers) and professional markets (e.g. smart glasses in production industry, logistics, health or education). Recent progress in technology (e.g. in microelectronics/sensors, displays, flexible products, wireless interfaces, energy) and use-cases (e.g. Internet-of-things/IoT) have enabled advanced functions and new applications. One of the "Wearables" flavors are smart-glasses augmented-reality (AR), that has arrived in production industry and logistics today. Next step will be to move wearable AR from "professionals to citizens” by enabling networked, everywhere augmented-reality (in-/outdoor localisation, scene recognition, cloud access,…) which is non-intrusive, exhibits intuitive user-interaction, anytime safe and secure use, and considers personal privacy protection (user’s and others). Various hardware improvements (e.g. low-power, seamless interactivity, small form factor, ergonomics,…), as well as connectivity and network integration will become vital for consumer adoption.  >>more information

Smart Health is an overarching term, commonly used for smart applications on the mobile phone and fitness parameter tracking in sports. But to gain benefit for the health care system and patients, much more is needed to be “smart”. Smart Health is a patient-centric approach for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of health-related burdens. It stands for interconnected point-of-care-diagnostic tools, smart medical devices (invasive and non-invasive), e-health products and services with constant data exchange and processing. The generated data in combination with specific information about individual patients will turn standard treatments into precision diagnosis and cure. Acute and chronic diseases will be facilitated by preventive healthcare and health management. The session will give an overview of already existing "Smart Health"-applications and cutting-edge research.  >> more information


The Internet of Things raises high hopes for improved business outcomes as rarely any technology paradigm before. The connection of low-cost sensors and actuators, efficient data analytics and new digital business models is being adopted by companies and consumers very fast, but not without great effort. The technology is complex and costly, real world applications that go beyond proof of concepts are still rare and most importantly: The revolutionary shift in business models enables by IoT is not yet widely understood by the industry. A lot of the know how to succeed in this area is concentrated in Saxony: With its long history in semiconductor manufacturing and engineering, the growing software industry and its excellent research facilities, the German federal state is a global hot spot for the IoT. Backed by the strong support from industry and leading academic institutions, this expert session will present real world IoT applications for the benefit of our attendees.  >>more information

Digitization is one of the three megatrends that will shape the mobility of tomorrow. The car of the future drives autonomous, cross-linked and electric. In the future, vehicles will communicate with each other in order to make traffic safer. We would like to discuss with you in the expert session how the car of the future looks, which propulsion systems are used and which new technologies should facilitate driving.

Since drones have entered the consumer market out of the shelf, technologies are available for easy use and low cost applications. Also this opens up the enormous potential of drone technologies for commercial applications. Visionary applications as parcel delivery are widely discussed and the need for open technologies for high sophisticated drone systems raises. The excitement in this field of innovation is driven by new approaches to autonomous flight missions and high performance image processing. This opens up a higher degree of automations to reasonable complex applications scenarios. There is a high need for applications as object inspection, support for agriculture and forestry, documentation of urban aerials and much more.   >>more information
