Engineered Materials Systems won “Best Commercialization Award” at IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA. This award was given for the use of their stretchable conductive ink in the successful commercial product MIMO Baby, made by Rest Devices. Rest Devices developed breakthrough wearable technology that combined capacitive sensing, blue tooth transmission of real-time biological data, and a clever way to integrate chip and power. What they lacked was a conductive ink that would meet their requirements of soft, stretchable and durable. Engineered Materials Systems submitted their flagship silver conductive ink, CI-1036 which worked very well according to Rest Devices engineers and was a key enabler to commercialization of MIMO Baby. CI-1036 is applied to proprietary film and insulated with a proprietary top-coat. This combination is reported by Rest Devices to withstand 90 wash/dry cycles of the MIMO Baby kimono with the failure mode not due to the conductive circuitry. Engineered Materials Systems, Inc. (EMS, Inc). is a global manufacturer of conductive inks, insulators, conductive adhesives for the printed electronics market. EMS has developed a highly stretchable/ flexible conductive ink for wearable electronics. For more information see http://emsadhesives.com/ and http://www.IDTechEx.com

ARM mbed OS is an open source embedded operating system for IoT for ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers that can be used to power smart cities, smart homes and wearables. mbed OS accelerates the time to market by providing a core operating system, robust security foundations, standards based communication capabilities, and drivers for sensors, I/O devices and connectivity. mbed OS is built as a modular, configurable software stack to readily customize it to devices being developed for, and reduce memory requirements by excluding unnecessary software components. mbed OS forms the client-side portion of the mbed IoT Device Platform on microcontrollers, and is designed to work in concert with mbed Device Connector, mbed Device Server, and mbed Client. Together this platform delivers comprehensive IoT solutions.
Richard York is responsible for the embedded segment marketing at ARM which covers markets including automotive, microcontrollers, HDD/SSD and smart analogue.
Based in Moscow, Russia, GeoCV is a software platform aiming to bring VR-calibre 3D modelling to the mass market. The highlight is the hardware-agnostic platform, implemented currently on a Project Tango device that is used to show a real estate company’s website with a home being displayed. GeoCV is looking beyond, to implement their platform on next-generation phones so that shooting in 3D is the same as shooting with a 2D camera (without special hardware.)

LiveU Solo is the more affordable bonded live video broadcasting solution from LiveU, to stream from anywhere to Wowza Media Systems, as well as other popular CDNs, OVPs and YouTube Live. LiveU makes devices specifically meant for broadcasting live using bonding technology directly through the Internet: with multiple connectivity options such as 3G, 4G/LTE, WiFi and Ethernet LAN, streaming from the camera using LRT (LiveU Reliable Transport) protocol optimized for video performance using adaptive bit rate and forward error correction technology. LiveU Central is their own server system that can handle multiple video streams to form a control room of sorts where a live producing users can switch and choose between several video feeds feeding into the channel such as YouTube Live.
