Samsung Technology Interests

Samsung has held Innovation Days on Jan. 19-21, 2015 in Dresden, Germany. The event was envisioned to be the "focal point for the purchase of innovative technologies in Europe." The list of the technologies that Samsung interested in is dominated by imaging items:

New technologies & innovations for wearable devices:
  • New user scenarios
  • Next generation User Experience (UX)
  • Low power components

New technology for camera products:
  • Auto focus / MEMS actuator
  • Optical image stabilisation
  • Active Lens technology
  • Actuators
  • High efficiency IR sensing image sensor

New material technology:
  • Transparent barrier / film
  • NIM (Nano Insulation Material) Organic
  • Heating surface
  • Material transmitting IR rays
  • Sapphire coating
  • 5 axis CNC
  • Technology for waterproofing / water repelling

MEMS Sensors:
  • Touch Sensor, Dust or particle, Fingerprint, Force, Reed, GSR Sensors
  • Ambient light / RGB Sensor
  • Gesture: Optical proximity sensor / 3D time of flight -TOF
  • Inertial Sensors: Accelerometers, Gyroscopes, Pressure sensor, Humidity sensor & Magnetometer
  • Vital Sign Sensors (for healthcare devices): non-contact, non-invasive, motion cancelling, low power

Sensors:
  • Fibre detection (cloth)
  • Thermopile Sensors: Non-contact temperature sensing
  • ToF = Time of Flight (measuring distance / length): non-contact distance measuring sensor
  • PIR / TIR Bolometer (IR) Sensor
  • Pressure
  • Temperature / humidity
  • Ultrasound sensor
  • Flex Sensor
  • Radon sensor
  • Non contact sleep detection sensor

Update: Here is the UK version of the list, dated by June 16, 2014.
