Connect a new blood glucose meter, blood pressure monitor, weight scale, digital thermometer, spirometers and other devices to sensors in your bed, on your arm and to your smartphone, tablets etc to monitor your health and help improve lifestyles and prevent disease. Freescale presents a whole range of new technologies to lower the cost of those healthcare devices so everyone can afford to have them at home and want to use them regularly as the data being wirelessly transfered and visualized online makes it easier and very useful for everyone to live a healthy lifestyle, eat good food, sleep well and do enough exercise.
The Kinnetis K50 has integrated operational amplifiers and transimpedance amplifiers, allows to reduce the PCB size and thus cost of healthcare sensor products. Expect to see many Healthcare oriented products arrive on the market using this Cortex-M4 processor.

Different ways to use Freescale's touch sensors in actual products.
They are showing their Sensor Fusion as a pedometer.
This is a robot training kit for $199, you get all the parts needed to start playing around programming with Freescale's microcontrollers, sensors and more. At the Freescale Technology Forum, Freescale is organizing the Make It challenge, where attendees have 36 hours to use one of these and build the coolest robot to win prizes.

Freescale works with Universities around the world to help provide tools to educate students on programming for Freescale processors. At the Freescale Technology Forum, Freescale organizes a Cup where some of the worlds best student teams show off their auto driving cars implemented with all of Freescale's microprocessors and sensor technologies.
They make algorithms for measuring pedestrian navigation, using the Freescale Fusion sensors, accelerometers, gyro, to measure every step and the distance of every step. The target device is a smartphone.
Using Freescale's Sensor Fusion solutions, the accelerometer and some algorithms can improve the magnetometer as so-called e-compass, an improved compass that knows in which direction you are heading, speed things up for augmented reality, and any application that requires the compass.
