Dr. Ralf Schellin
Ralf Schellin received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering and his Master degree in Technical Physics at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany. Currently he is based in Reutlingen, Germany, where he is Head of the Product Area MEMS of Bosch Sensortec. Prior to this, he was Director of Product Management of Bosch Sensortec.
From 2010 to 2014 he was leading a cross divisional project at Bosch on Tiny Wireless Sensors for the Internet of Things. From 2007 to 2009 he was leading an engineering group at Bosch Sensortec. Between 2001 and 2006 he held various positions in engineering and product management at Siemens in Munich, Germany, in the area of mobile devices based on IP technologies. Between 1996 and 2000 he was leading various projects in the automotive area of Bosch in Reutlingen working on safety relevant MEMS based sensors. Prior to Bosch he was holding a post-doc position in biosensors at University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands.
How MEMS Sensors and Embedded AI Facilitate Our Daily-Life
MEMS sensors are playing a key role as the silent enablers of todays and future consumer electronics applications. With the growing relevance of social trends like safety, health and presonalization, the complexity of daily-life use cases is increasing. To tackle the resulting challenges, new approaches are required in the MEMS sensor industry. To continue providing additional value to customers, a stronger focus on hardware-software co-design is required by using advanced algorithms and embedded AI.
In the presentation, Dr Ralf Schellin, Vice President and Head of Product Area MEMS at Bosch Sensortec, will illustrate the role of advanced algorithms, MEMS sensors and embedded AI by providing specific use case examples in the context of environmental sensing and self-learning.
