Xiaolin Lu, Fellow and Manager of Kilby Lab, Texas Instruments
Xiaolin is Fellow and director of Texas Instruments Kilby Labs responsible for driving research activities on connected sensors, embedded AI, timing and clocking technologies for industrial and automobile applications. She is chartered to drive various differentiated semiconductor solutions into various applications through ubiquitous TI sensors, analog interfaces, embedded processors, connectivity, and power management devices. Xiaolin is well-known as an embedded system expert inside and outside TI and has given keynote and plenary talks at numerous technical conferences. In addition, she is the author/co-author of more than 60 U.S. issued patents and the recipient of the special recognition awards: 2016 Asian American Engineer of the Year, Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and National Women of Color award in the Technical Innovation – Industry category
In this talk we will discuss “Smart Sensing” definition, underneath semiconductor technologies to make “Smart Sensing” work as well as its deployment in an example factory robotic arms-based process flow and its initial results as well as opportunities down the road. Smart sensing together with power efficient edge computing, robust connectivity, embedded AI and small factor system level integration helped to drive the robotics technologies in various use cases such as smart factory, smart buildings, smart cities and smart transportation systems to name a few.
