Freescale Xtrinsic sensing solutions are scalable to support the vast requirements for the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT developers have to incorporate various sensor technologies to differentiate their products, manage their system power, get to market quickly, and plan for next gen products. There are unique challenges of incorporating sensors. Freescale expert Michelle Kelsey will review four foundational Xtrinsic sensing technologies with multiple platforms for enablement and the basics of sensor fusion. With that foundation, we will then take an exploration of the underlying design decisions for achieving low power, sensor fusion solutions on Freescale’s market available ARM devices with market available Xtrinsic sensors. Ultimately, we will address opportunities for the four main areas where IoT sensor developers need solutions – Reduce Time to Market, Power Management, Sensor Data Management, and Scalability.

You Will Learn:

  • Learn about Freescale Xtrinsic sensors that support the Internet of Things
  • Learn about the role sensors play in the Internet of Things
  • Learn about sensor enablement for fast time to market for your IoT device
  • Obtain tips and tricks for developing low power sensor fusion solutions
