Ask the Expert - focus on MEMS sensors for Predictive Maintenance

In this Ask the Expert we have Andrea Onetti General Manager the MEMS Sensors Division at STMicroelectronics.

This is your chance to engage with an industry expert and discover more about MEMS sensors, their use in applications and various industry segments.

Are you interested in new applications and discovering more about Predictive Maintenance, AI, Machine Learning and how MEMS can offer you solutions? Perhaps you want to understand more about specific applications, like environmental or automotive, or do you have an application in mind, but are unsure which products you need and how would you integrate them? 

If so, this edition of Ask the Expert is for you. Perhaps you have a more specific question such as;

  • How do I monitor my machines more effectively using MEMS?
  • Can I integrate sensor fusion with MEMS and how would I do this to improve performance? 
  • What are the new emerging applications beyond Smartphones?
  • How can I use MEMS for environmental monitoring?
  • What is new in terms of market trends and industry segmentation?
  • What does the STMicroelectronics MEMS offer cover? What can be measured?
  • Which tools and services are available from ST Microelectronics to support MEMS?
  • Where is this technology moving, what are future developments?
  • Why are there separate products for Consumer & Industrial MEMS?

All these and more can be covered during this edition of Ask the Expert.

To view questions asked so far please open the attachment below.

Simply post your questions below by 25th October and we'll present these to Andrea in our next edition of Ask the Expert, stay tuned for answers.
