The Industrial Summit just closed its doors, and it was such a privilege to receive nearly a thousand people physically, which was almost twice what we expected. Moreover, nearly 12,000 virtual attendees joined the plenary session, one of the five tracks, or one of the demos on display. All the live streams were both in Chinese and English and are already available on replay. Attendees can visit the Industrial Summit page, click “Watch the replay”, then select “Live Stream”. After filling up a form, our teams will send an email with all the links to the videos.
Coincidentally, while world leaders wondered, at the COP26 conference on climate change, how to save the environment, demos at the Industrial Summit 2021 showed that green farming was a reality. Some presentations exposed how it was possible to drive LEDs efficiently to help grow certain crops. ST also had sensors to monitor soil and environmental conditions. Moreover, the rubber tree tapping machine was a tremendous success. The product, already used in the field, uses ST LDOs, microcontrollers, and more to optimize collection while reducing bark injury. It thus increases the trees’ lifespan while also improving the plantation’s return on investments.
There were so many other demos and presentations that we set up a photo album to give a taste of what took place. Attendees got to see our EtherCAT rover, EV charging stations, and smart infrastructures, but there was also so much more. Engineers got to try new TouchGFX innovations. Developers saw machine learning on STM32 in action. There were presentations on our latest MASTERGAN family of devices. And motor control innovations shone bright thanks to the STSPIN32G4. Ultimately, it was the best way to bring meaningful innovation to our partners and communities in the region. The Industrial Summit 2021 was a celebration of what makes China and the Asia Pacific region special. In a humble way, it was also a unique opportunity to fuel the drive, ingenuity, and spirit that will lead to a better tomorrow.
