Investigate top trends that help engineers optimize applications across diverse industries.Register today
With a user base of 35,000 companies and hundreds of education and technology partners, NI is in a position to examine engineering trends as they happen and connect leaders in academic and industry to help engineers leverage these trends to maximize results. More details on this years’ trends coming soon.
Researchers and scientists of system design technologies and tools, engineers and engineering managers on system-level design teams, system designers using processors and FPGAs, and technologists wanting to learn about the latest research in system design.
Learn how UC Berkeley and NI have created a design and verification system for cyber-physical systems and robotics. The system combines the LabVIEW Robotics Simulator with UC Berkeley's state-of-the-art verification and debugging techniques to create and assess robot navigation and hill climb routines.
Many organizations are investing significant sums in creating and filling the "data lake"-the collection of structured and unstructured data that provides the broadest context around equipment we've ever known. However, data doesn't solve problems, so engineers need methodologies, tools, and techniques to find value in that data. The process of acquire, analyze, and act is worthless without the act phase, yet Big Data is often a technology looking for a problem. At this session, explore some of the issues Rolls-Royce faced and solutions it used to deliver equipment health management services for more than 12,000 jet engines.
Industry 4.0, Smart Factory, and Industrial Internet are some of the terms used to describe the social and technological revolution that promises to change the current industrial landscape. Bosch Software Innovation has been on the forefront of these developments. At this session, get an overview of the status quo and the road ahead based on concrete examples and use cases.
Discover the state-of-the-art systems that technology companies are already implementing to apply Big Data to improving R&D efficiency, predicting problems, and anticipating future needs. Also explore what Big Data's future holds as increasing ubiquitous networking infrastructure, intelligent sensing, and machine-based analytics become the norm.
As companies attempt to acquire more and more data to diagnose problems and improve product quality, intelligent, networked DAQ systems capable of on-node analysis and decision making are increasingly being used to ensure that the right data is captured. At this session, discover how real-time analytics provide instantaneous business insights.
Cellular communications technology today is typically used for connecting devices and people and for transmitting a variety of content. In contrast, we use separate infrastructure for wireless controls, from remote controls of entertainment sets to cranes and vehicles on construction sites. A cellular infrastructure, correctly specified and implemented, could not only connect but also network all distributed embedded systems. This would enable us to ubiquitously connect cyber-physical systems. At this session, explore the requirements for the next-generation cellular standard, referred to as 5G. Also get an overview of the new applications of the Tactile Internet.
Today's connected world generates more data than ever before with endless possibilities for better decision making. Because of the continued growth of sensors, mobile devices, and automation, this data has taken on new characteristics in how we move it, ingest it, process it, and use it to drive decisions and actions. At this session, explore the emerging work through the lens of successful projects, best practices, and lessons learned in handling the next generation of information creation. Examine advanced technologies including hardware and software innovations for scalable computing and algorithms for intelligent data processing.
