This book provides a thorough overview of cutting-edge research on electronics applications relevant to industry, the environment,
and society at large. It covers a broad spectrum of application domains, from automotive to space and from health to security,
while devoting special attention to the use of embedded devices and sensors for imaging, communication and control. The book
is based on the 2018 ApplePies Conference, held in Pisa, Italy in September 2018, which brought together researchers and stakeholders
to consider the most significant current trends in the field of applied electronics and to debate visions for the future.
Areas addressed by the conference included information communication technology; biotechnology and biomedical imaging; space;
secure, clean and efficient energy; the environment; and smart, green and integrated transport. As electronics technology
continues to develop apace, constantly meeting previously unthinkable targets, further attention needs to be directed toward
the electronics applications and the development of systems that facilitate human activities. This book, written by industrial
and academic professionals, represents a valuable contribution in this endeavor.
