Featured Event

Automotive Sensors & Electronics Expo 2013
Currently, each vehicle has an average of 60-100 sensors on board. Because cars are rapidly getting "smarter" the number of sensors is projected to reach as many as 200 sensors per car by 2020. These numbers translate to approximately 22 billion sensors used in the automotive industry per year. This event will bring together leading experts in automotive sensors and electronics who will discuss business and technology issues, ongoing trends, and emerging applications.
