Part 1 of this blog discussed sensors in the laundry room in washing machines and dryers. In the kitchen, similar to the laundry room, basic functions can be designed in using established sensing techniques. In the typical home, the refrigerator is the second-largest consumer of electricity (13.7%), with the air conditioner being number one. So, […]
What Dev Kits are Available for New Designs?
At Sensors Expo 2019, Marc Hervieu from STMicroelectronics explains different development kits that are available to help designers expedite their design efforts in several areas, including cellular, LoRa and cloud connectivity for the Internet of Things.

What does complete predictive machine maintenance look like?
At Sensor Expo 2019, Edoardo Gallizio from product marketing for MEMS & Sensors in the Americas at STMicroelectronics demonstrates a complete predictive maintenance reference design. Multiple sensors are part of the monitoring where some sensors are mounted directly on a spinning wheel to continuously measure vibration. The sensors gather the data, a microprocessor accesses the […]
