Rambus, along with partners MLove and IXDS, hosted “Eyes of the IoT” MWC 2015 workshop in Barcelona, Spain, devoted to brainstorming on the possible uses of lensless image sensors. Some suggestions:
"Lars Stalling of Telefonica/Canoe Lab – who headed the smart transport group – suggested LSS technology could be used to help pedestrians navigate crowded cities like Barcelona and New York by introducing a wearable third eye."
Harald Neidhardt of MLove proposed “Lensless smart sensors [which are approximately the size of a human hair], are small enough to be painted on city walls and street signs to supplement existing safety requirements and help make true intelligent lighting a reality. We call this concept 'City Glaze'.”
Reto Wettach of IXDS said “We’re thinking about enabling ultra-smart appliances such as a refrigerator that is capable of sensing what groceries need to be ordered and what food items are close to their expiration date. LSS is inexpensive, low-powered and small enough to make it the right technology to bring intelligent appliances to the next level.”
