Introduction to UltraSense Systems technology


Virtual presentation by Dr. Sina Akhbari from UltraSense Systems Inc.


UltraSense Systems developed the world’s smallest and most integrated ultrasound sensor combined with force sensing capability ushering a new era for user interfaces to be reimagined. As the paradigm shift from mechanical to digital continues to evolve, UltraSense Systems brings a revolutionary sensor system technology that can virtually turn any material, with any thickness into a user interface that can detect and classify various types of touches, gestures, and input events from the user.

Dr. Sina Akhbari of UltraSense System Inc.


Sina Akhbari has a multidisciplinary background in EE, ME, and CS fields with special focus on micro-electromechanical sensor system design and sensing algo development. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley majoring in MEMS/NANO with minors in IC Devices and Dynamics with 30+ publications and patents. He worked on design, analysis, modeling, fabrication, and characterization, of MEMS sensors and actuators, including Piezoelectric Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (pMUT) as part of his Ph.D. research with emphasis on theoretical modeling, FEA simulation, design, and fabrication of high efficiency CMOS-compatible pMUTs for implementation in low-power handheld/wearable ultrasound devices for various applications, such as: motion sensing, health monitoring, therapy, and fingerprint scanning. In 2018, he co-founded UltraSense Systems where he leads the sensor design engineering team on revolutionary next-generation touch interfaces.
