Connectivity & NFC: ST will showcase its NFC, Bluetooth, and LPWAN solutions for machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT applications. Key highlights include a Smart Logistics demo with a smart sensor tag enabled by the ST25DV NFC IC for contactless solutions.
A Smart retail demo based on the latest STM32WB MCU with BLE 5.0 utilizes multiple nodes positioned at various locations simulating a shopping mall aisle. The nodes can detect and wirelessly transmit personalized data to a device as user enters the proximity range, such as displaying coupons or suggesting items to purchase based on previous purchases.
Artificial Intelligence: ST will showcase the AI integration into its family of STM32 microcontrollers through demonstrations using human activity recognition, short commands recognition, and character recognition. Other demos include smart detection of available/occupied parking places in a parking lot.
Power Management: ST power-management demos include the STWBC-EP, an advanced wireless-charging controller that supports Qi Extended Power.
Sensor & Processing: ST demos include a Bluetooth MESH network solution based on the BlueNRG-1; a smart lock by Willowmore powered by a Sigfox gateway with cloud connection for lock-status monitoring; an advanced voice-processing and -transfer platform (BlueCoin) using ST’s MEMS microphones and BLE with embedded sensors for sound, acceleration, rotation, magnetic field, temperature and pressure; BLE connectivity for smart phones.
