The MEMS Engineer Forum (MEF) out of Tokyo, Japan is an annual gathering place for MEMS researchers, developers, and engineers to discuss MEMS as a fundamental and disciplinary technology that will drive the world into diversified business sectors over the next few decades.
MicroVision’s own Director of Product Engineering, Jari Honkanen, was invited to join the conversation alongside other key players in the industry. Participating in the discussion about MEMS and IoT for the “smart city,” Jari hosted a presentation surrounding MEMS-based Laser Beam Scanning (LBS) solutions as a platform technology for display and sensing applications. Through his talk, he touched on the challenges and advantages of an LBS approach and highlighted several applications areas, ranging from pico projectors and heads-up displays to eyewear for augmented reality, 3D printing, and mid-range LiDAR.
Held last month on April 26-27, the 2017 forum attracted more than 500 attendees spanning the U.S., France, Finland, Japan, and beyond. Jari engaged over 400 attendees with his discussion about how a single MEMS device combined with laser diodes forms a technology platform to support a wide variety of applications and products.
It was an excellent networking opportunity for highlighting our current PSE-0403 display engine, as well as our upcoming interactive display and 3D sensing mid-range LiDAR engines with our PicoP® scanning technology at their core.
