IEEE Central Texas MEMS & Sensors Committee Meeting Join us for our first Austin area meeting Driving With Your Head - Arrow Semi-Autonomous Motorcar (SAM) with NXP Technology Speaker: Joe Thompson of NXP-Freescale Date/Time: Tuesday, May 31, 2016, 6:00-7:00 pm check-in and networking, 7:00-8:00 presentation Location: Silicon Labs, 200 West Cesar Chavez, Lady Bird Conference Room, 2nd Floor, Austin, TX 78701 Parking: The parking garage entrance is on the East side of 200 W Cesar Chavez, off of Colorado Street. Colorado Street is a one-way street, southbound, so approach the parking lot from the intersection of 2nd and Colorado. Food: Pizza and beverages will be available starting at 6:00 pm for $5 donation at the door Sponsor: MEMSTRONICS will be sponsoring this event. Contact Brent Lunceford at blunceford@memstronics.com if you have interest in sponsoring future events. Abstract: In 2015 NXP partnered with Arrow Electronics to develop an inertial sensor system for the SAM car, which is a modified Corvette that enables a quadriplegic to drive using only his head. This presentation explains the challenges encountered and how they were overcome to use wireless attached MEMS sensors to accurately track the driver’s head movements in a moving car and convert those head movements into car control commands for precise control of the vehicle.”
