Sensors Converge is an in-person and virtual event covering the biggest design engineering trends, where design innovation meets tech innovations. Started 36 years ago, the conference has evolved and diversified to include the electronics technologies and embedded systems that work hand-in-hand with sensors and new and emerging application areas such as IoT, connectivity, autonomous functions, and more.

Ranging has long been the gold standard for precision location systems, powering technologies such as GPS and Ultra-wideband (UWB)—but these are often too expensive for tracking items in an industrial environment and have onerous power requirements or finicky install procedures. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices offer the possibility of significant cost reductions. Still, the absence of an ability to support location determination via ranging has led to insufficient accuracy and limited adoption in manufacturing.

On Sept. 23, 2021, Link Labs CEO Bob Proctor will give an informative presentation on how to use ranging communication technology to achieve high accuracy and affordability in IoT asset tracking. This session, along with the entire event can be attended in-person or virtually online.

Bob Proctor is the co-founder and CEO of Link Labs, a leading provider of an end-to-end IoT platform for tagging, locating and monitoring equipment, supplies and assets anywhere at any time. With a PhD in applied physics and 25 years of entrepreneurial and business leadership, Proctor is also a founding principal of Blu Venture Investors, a venture capital investment company that supports early-stage entrepreneurs in the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S., which gives him a unique point of view on a wide range of emerging technologies and their novel applications and potential market viability.

Proctor will present an overview of the significant technological challenges for ranging-based asset tracking using BLE devices and discuss innovative methods for resolving them in software engineering at the firmware level of IoT devices.

Date: Thur., Sep. 23, 2021
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 12:30 p.m. ET
Where: McEnery Convention Center, 150 W. San Carlos Street, San Jose, CA 95113, Executive Ballroom B (BF)
