Sensors Council, Chicago Chapter

Welcome to the Chapter website of the Sensors Council, Chicago Chapter! The Sensors Council, Chicago Chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) serves engineering and computer professionals in the twelve counties of the greater Chicago area. As part of the Chicago Section, the Sensors Chapter provides a local interface to the worldwide network of the IEEE.

The Sensors Chapter organizes technical presentations, lectures, webinars, social events, and networking opportunities of interest to sensors, transducers and integrated sensor-actuators professionals. The Chapter’s Fields of Interest include “the theory, design, fabrication, manufacturing and application of devices for sensing and transducing physical, chemical, and biological phenomena, with emphasis on the electronics, physics and reliability aspects of sensors and integrated sensor-actuators.”

The Chapter’s activities will be devoted to the following topics: physical, chemical, electronic and optical sensors, biosensors, electromagnetic and radiation sensors, micro- and nano-sensors, integrated sensor systems, manufacturing, packaging and modeling of sensors, sensor system networks, sensor data processing and analysis, and emerging applications of sensors in internet-of-things (IoTs), smart cities, Industry 4.0, wireless health, autonomous vehicles, intelligent agriculture, cyber-physics, and robotics.

The Chapter Committee operates under the Code of Practice, which has been made in accordance to the by-laws of the IEEE Sensors Council and the Chicago Section.
