Emerging Acoustic Sensor Technologies and Applications

Sensors are at the forefront of hardware innovation, shaping the way devices are used nowadays. It’s no different with audio devices – what used to be very one-dimensional a few years ago now comes with all kinds of integrated sensors for different purposes that have a dramatic impact on the audio experience and how these technologies can be used on our daily lives. In this webinar we will explore new and alternative acoustic sensor technologies and their applications.

Sensors are what give our machines ears, eyes, touch, movement, and much more. Moreover, in this day and age, data is at the core of every technology and business. Besides the obvious digitally generated data/ metadata, where else is data coming from? Sensors. If you can sense/ measure, you can quantify. If you can quantify, you can generate (and store) data. If you generate (and store) meaningful data – congratulations, your technology is potentially useful (and profitable). Most importantly, because there are so many signals that can be measured, both in the human body and in the external world, the technological possibilities for different types of sensors are endless. This webinar explores new acoustic sensor technologies and other parallel sensor technologies that are being used for sound applications.

Rémi Guastavino, Director of Product Management at GRAS Sound & Vibration 

Rémi Guastavino was born and raised in France but relocated to Sweden to study at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) where he earned an MSc in Engineering Physics and a PhD in technical acoustics.

Rémi then moved to Denmark where he focused on user-centric acoustic solutions working in both technical and strategical positions. He joined GRAS in 2021 and has since focused on the both the technical and user-related aspects of next-generation acoustic transducers.
