Most often, people use Fitness trackers for keeping track of their fitness activity, set achievable goals and to motivate themselves. Fitness trackers are mostly wearable electronics that measure/track your activity such as steps taken, distance walked, calorie consumption and even heart rate in some cases. Most fitness trackers have an accelerometer that helps in tracking our activity. Some fitness trackers may also have altimeter, music player and many other features. So, how does the fitness tracker do it?
Date: 8 – 12 June 2015Venue: Centre for MEMS & Micro-Fluidics
While finding engineers and machinists with micro-manufacturing skills, there is definitely a skill gap in micro-manufacturing throughout the world. It is a global issue. Research work in the field of MEMS and Microfluidics also get delayed due to the lack of manpower with the knowledge and skills in the area of Micro-manufacturing. Since the investment cost for micro-machining processes and maintenance cost of clean room facilities are very expensive, only very few Institutions like IITs have the full-pledged facilities for micro-machining technology. We have also developed very important micro fabrication facilities at this centre under various sponsored projects. Participating in this internship will surely be a very good opportunity.
“IEEE Workshop on MEMS & Microsystems with Hands-on training in Device Simulation & Microfabrication Process” is being jointly organized by IEEE Student Branch, WiE Affinity group of IIT Kharagpur and IEEE EMB Student Club IIT Kharagpur. The workshop aims to provide an excellent forum to interact and share ideas on the MEMS and microelectronics system, technologies, emerging applications with hands-on simulation and fabrication procedure to the students, researchers and faculties working in the area of MEMS sensing and technology. This will be a three days workshop where experts from industries and academia are invited to share their knowledge in the respective fields.
