"In-Ear Sensor System" wins SENSOR Innovation Award 2010

AMA Association for Sensor Technology
June 3, 2010


The AMA Association for Sensor Technology has presented its 10,000-euro SENSOR Innovation Award. A joint development project of the CiS Forschungsinstituts für Mikrosensorik und Photovoltaik GmbH, Erfurt, Audia Akustik GmbH, Sömmerda und dem Helmholtz-Institut für Biomedizinische Technik der RWTH Aachen won the coveted award.

As the jury saw it, the winners submitted an especially promising team solution that convinced not only by the optical sensor technology and integration as an in-ear system, but also by the secondary data derived from the primary measuring signals: The pulse rate is determined by way of the low-frequency signal amplitude, thus saving an additional sensor.

Also nominated were teams from the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems (IMS) with their 'Time-of-Flight 3D Distance Sensor with Integrated Pulse Emission' and Gasera Ltd. from Finland with an innovation called 'Hand-Held FTIR-PAS Gas Analyzer for Detection of Toxic Chemicals in Safety and Security Applications Using a Novel Ultra-Sensitive MEMS Cantilever Sensor.'

The award was presented during the opening ceremony of the AMA trade fair SENSOR+TEST on 18 May 2010 in Nuremberg.
