Material selection is essential to the design of electronics devices. Ever since the invention of the light bulb, engineers have been trying to choose the right materials amongst metal, ceramics, rubbers, plastics etc. to make structural and functional components for electronic devices. Due to the insulate properties of engineering thermoplastics (ETP) and the ease of injection moulding process for mass production, lots of different ETPs have been used to make electronics parts and enclosures. At chemistry level, resins were designed that are suitable for various electronic applications: for example some are resistant to high temperatures and flame-retardant according to industrial regulations. Depending on their inherent material properties and the purpose of the particular part, different materials can also be put together with the plastics into 2D or 3D forms. In recent years, with the needs to design consumer electronic devices in a more and more sleek, fashionable, intricate, and miniaturized way, material scientists are forced to think ahead to develop smart materials with special functionalities at micro- to nano- size scales, which can in-turn enable functional-integrated new designs at ODM and OEMs.This tutorial session will first provide a fundamental look at the overall material collections and properties, with a focus on specialty engineering thermoplastics in our current portfolio. Then several examples will be illustrated in details to show our resolve in providing smart material and form solutions to display and electronics applications in consumer electronic industry. One example is optical material solution for future photonic data and signal transmission; another example is our innovative transparent conductive film solution for formable multi-touch screens at 2.5D or 3D.

The first selfie (image of me), captured by a J-SH04 phone from J-Phone (now SoftBank) in Japan in November 2000, was a 0.11-megapixels narrow field of view image with the ability to send the photos electronically. With the combination of a camera and connectivity in the same device, the era of visual communications started, opening a small keyhole into people’s day-to-day lives. Since then, a variety of electronic products embedding cameras, such as wearables, mobile phones, web cams, home cams, tablets, sports cameras, drones and cars, have appeared in the consumer market. This availability has driven the growth of video communications and the demand for high resolution sensor and lens technology. Today, most connected devices still offer a narrow field of view experience, while most camera designs are an incremental improvement on the original late 90’s design. On the back of the race to higher resolution and better image quality, another trend is emerging: to capture, share and experience immersive content. One of the challenges of the 360° and virtual reality (VR) industry is to define a video standard between devices and software that ensures a plug and play immersive experience. This presentation will introduce different initiatives to capture, share and experience 360° content, and will present the future user experience resulting from a complete standardized ecosystem of interconnected 360° devices and software. Users are ready to move away from narrow angle keyhole capture devices and open a large 360° window to share experiences of their daily lives.

16:40 Energy Detection Analytical Model for Handoff Process to Support Mobile Cloud Computing Environment
Qassim Bani Hani and Julius Dichter (University of Bridgeport, USA)
Mobile devices play an integral role in our day lives and have brought the revolutionary change in business, education, and entertainment. Moreover, the emergence of cloud computing technology greatly extended the significance of smart device. On the other hand, the smart devices experience the problem when obtaining the multiple cloud services during the handoff process. In this paper, we propose an energy detection (ED) analytical model for handoff process that calculates the energy consumption for each handoff process in the cloud computing environment. Our ED analytic model is developed to examine the consumed energy for different handoff processes in cloud computing. The model helps the mobile users to get prior information for the status of the mobile when executing the handoff process. To reconfirm the validity of ED analytical model, we have test programmed in NS2. The results demonstrate that the ED analytical model efficiently detects the energy consumption of mobile devices during the handoff process in cloud computing environment.
