MEMS in wearable products today and needs for tomorrow
Dr. Rajashree Baskaran
Principal Engineer and Director
New Devices Group
In this talk, I would like to review the usages of MEMs based solutions in wrist worn and head worn wearable products released by Intel in the last few years. I would like to focus on existing use cases and also motivate the new use cases for next generation products and what type of sensors and actuators would be ideal for such applications.
