DRESDEN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - May 15, 2015) - ZMD AG (ZMDI), an award-winning global semiconductor company headquartered in Dresden, Germany, and specializing in enabling energy-efficient solutions, today announces that it will be sponsoring a luncheon and providing a presentation on automotive sensing at this year's Automotive Sensors and Electronics Expo in Detroit, Michigan, on May 20. As a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications, ZMDI values this opportunity to present their leading-edge sensor technologies at this major event.
"The automotive market worldwide has bounced back and is thriving. In 2013, approximately 75 million new light vehicles (cars and light trucks) were shipped worldwide. This number is projected to reach 110 million by 2020. Currently, each vehicle has an average of 60 to 100 sensors on board. Because cars are rapidly getting "smarter," the number of sensors is projected to reach as many as 200 sensors per car. These numbers translate to approximately 22 billion sensors used in the automotive industry per year by 2020," states Mike Pinelis, CEO of MEMS Journal. "So what are the emerging applications enabled by the next-generation sensors and electronics? And what are the technologies that will enable new applications? These are the key questions that will drive the discussion at this annual event, Automotive Sensors and Electronics Expo 2015."
Frank Schulze, Director of Strategy for ZMDI, states "ZMDI looks forward to being involved in this annual event, which brings together leading experts and professionals in the field of automotive sensing." Mr. Schulze further comments that "ZMDI has over 50 years of technical expertise and a solid history with major automotive manufacturers, so I am excited to share the latest innovations of ZMDI's sensing technologies at this important industry event."
