Gary Atkinson: Director of Emerging Technologies, ARM

garyGary Atkinson, Director of Emerging Technologies, ARM, is based in Cambridge, UK, but spends his time traveling the world looking for new technology that already has or may have a use for ARM-based processors in disruptive, globally scalable and impactful applications. He is also the Chairman of the Board of the Weightless SIG – a wide area wireless technology that will deliver connectivity in $2 chips that can span 10km but last 10 years on a single battery. Application areas of interest are Agriculture, Water Treatment and Distribution, Environmental monitoring and Energy Efficiency. He is particularly interested in how the mass deployment of low cost and low power sensors can provide the real-time data needed to improve production or energy efficiency, or automate how one machine talks to another.
