mCube is the provider of the world's smallest MEMS motion sensors, key enablers for the new Internet of Moving Things (IoMT). Virtually anything that moves can take advantage of a motion sensor, creating a huge market opportunity for MEMS manufacturers. By 2020, analysts predict more than 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet and a large percentage of those devices will be in motion. From smartphones to tablets, from gaming devices to augmented reality experiences, from smart clothes to wearables, a plethora of new applications are coming to market that will further transform the way consumers live and businesses operate.

To connect anything that moves to the Internet and monitor, analyze and deliver real-time insights from the data requires a brand new approach to MEMS inertial motion sensors. Requirements include: extremely small size, very low power, cost competitive, and high performance.

Small as a grain of sand, over 100 million units of mCube's MEMS accelerometers have already shipped for use in a range of smartphones, tablets and wearables. As one of the only private companies with the patented sensor technology needed to achieve the cost, size, low power and high performance needed for this growing market, mCube.

WANDA is a remote monitoring healthcare analytics and management company for primary care patients with chronic diseases. The Remote Monitoring System (RMS) channels data from patients’ home to the WANDA analytics module which highlights to clinicians which are high risk allowing action to be taken before they have an adverse event, potentially reducing hospitalization rates.

WANDA brings to life personalized medicine combined with secure computing and revolutionary data-mining and analytics which represent a paradigm shift in modern healthcare. Globally, 75 per cent of all healthcare costs are attributable to chronic diseases, with heart failure, coronary vascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes amongst the most costly. In 2010, the United States spent 17.6 per cent of its gross domestic product on healthcare, whilst the United Kingdom spent 9.6 per cent. A 2011 report from the World Economic Forum further predicts that if there were no change to chronic disease management, overall global healthcare costs up until 2030 will result in a cumulative output loss of $47 trillion, roughly 75 per cent of global GDP in 2010.

WANDA is among the first movers in what will be a very large and fast growing market. The company is based in Silicon Valley and has an on-going collaboration with the Wireless Health Institute at UCLA. The clinical collaborators are currently using WANDA analytics on a research basis in seven major California hospitals, including UCLA, UCSF, Berkeley and Cedar Sinai.

MIPI Alliance is a global, collaborative organization comprised of companies that span the mobile ecosystem and are committed to defining and promoting interface specifications for mobile devices.

Sensors are experiencing rapid growth in mobile devices – reaching a critical milestone of 10+ sensors and 20+ signals per device. To compound matters, the digital interface landscape is fragmented and current standard architectures do not scale to reach future demands.

To address these issues in collaboration with the MEMS Industry Group (MIG), MIPI Alliance formed a Sensor Investigation Group that will further investigate requirements related to integrating sensors into mobile systems and review technical proposals against these requirements, with the goal of selecting a possible approach for a future Specification development effort.
