Sensor technology and its system industry is the fundamentality and strategic industry of the Chinese national economy, and is the source of deep integration of informatization and industrialization, playing an important role in promoting transformation and upgrading industries, developing strategic emerging industries, promoting modern national defense construction, and guaranteeing and increasing people’s living standard. With the coming of an intelligent society, trillions of sensors will be used to help people live better. From November 12th to 14th, “the First World Sensors Summit in 2018”, jointly organized by China Instrument and Control Society, Intelligent Sensor Innovation Alliance, Zhengzhou Municipal People’s Government, and Management Committee of Zhengzhou National High-tech Industrial Development Zone, was held at Zhengzhou International Convention and Exhibition center in China grandly. With the theme of “Sense the World, Win the Future”, the summit attracted about 1,500 representatives of related-sensor teaching-research-production institutions from 35 countries and regions.
Experts and scholars attending this summit included: Shuji Nakamura (Professor of the University of California, Nobel Prize in Physics 2014), Jin Guofan (Professor of Tsinghua University, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering), You Zheng (Vice President of Tsinghua University, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering) , Jiang Zhuangde (Professor of Xi’an Jiaotong University, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering), Zhou Liwei (Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences), Tan Jiubin (Professor of Harbin Institute of Technology, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering), Yao Jianquan (Professor of Tianjin University, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences), Wang Tianran (Researcher of Shenyang Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences), Fang Jiaxiong (Academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, Researcher of Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering), Yang Xiurong (Researcher of Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences) and other well-known experts in the international and domestic sensor industry.
Liu Wei, deputy governor of the Henan Provincial People’s Government, said: “Henan Province will take intelligent sensors as a strategic emerging industry supported by the province. We will formulate special actions and strengthen the policy support. We will focus on the synergy upgrade of the intelligent sensor industry chain and the industrial ecological improvement. We will pay more attention to promoting the materials, equipment, design, manufacturing, subpackaging and testing of intelligent sensors, the development of the whole industry chain, and promoting the construction of the “One Valley and Two Bases”, that is, China’s intelligent sensors valley in Zhengzhou High-tech Zone and the Sensing Bases in Luoyang and Xinxiang. We will strive to create an industry highland with an international influence to research, develop and manufacture intelligent sensors through three to five years of hard work. ”
The summit issued the “Zhengzhou Consensus”, establishing that the international sensors summit will be held in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province for three consecutive years from 2018. The summit will jointly build a global communication platform with relevant domestic and foreign institutions, experts and scholars at home and abroad, as well as representatives of entrepreneurs to promote the global production, learning, research, use of sensors and the interaction and amalgamation of the upstream and downstream industry chain, and to promote development and innovation in sensor technology and industry in the world, especially in China.
During the summit, nearly 280 domestic and foreign well-known enterprises, including Panasonic, Siemens, E+H, GE, Emerson, and Baidu, showed the latest technologies and products related to intelligent sensors. The summit also held 20 sub-forums in the segmentation field of sensors, involving academics, design, packaging and testing, standards of sensors, and the automotive, rail transit, water supply and drainage applications of sensors. Other summits focused on grain, oil, environmental monitoring, agriculture, chemical, power grid, and aerospace applications.
