Panelists will include Harry Forbes, ARC Analyst; Jose Gutierez, Eaton, Director of Technology Embedded Systems; Bob Karschina, Emerson Process Management, Director of Technology; Kang Lee, National Institutes for Science and Technology, Leader, Sensor Development & Application Group, Manufacturing Metrology Division, Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory; Anoop Mathur, Honeywell, Director of Wireless Technologies and Embedded Controls; Wayne Manges, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Director, Oak Ridge Center for Manufacturing Technology; and Hesh Kagan, Invensys, Director Business Development.
