Investigate top trends that help engineers optimize applications across diverse industries.
This two-day summit brings leaders in industry and academia to discuss how the Internet of Things links our physical world with digital infrastructure and the resulting impact on engineering from design to manufacturing. Attend this summit to hear about the enabling technology behind the IoT; see examples of how organizations are benefiting from smart, connected systems; and gain insights on how they are looking to create a smarter, more inter-connected world.
Business leaders, 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.
Join a panel discussion led by industry experts as they share their unique perspectives on the business opportunities and technical challenges to design and build the Internet of Things (IoT).
The IoT has evolved into an advanced connection of products, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications; nevertheless, designers must still speculate how their work fits into this picture. Through an open dialogue, examine how engineers and scientists should approach the IoT and how they can shape the ecosystem in the future.
Implementing Industrie 4.0 solutions across the manufacturing value chain can impact the business in numerous ways. From improving operational efficiency to enhancing customer service, organizations are achieving tremendous return on investment from their Internet of Things (IoT) technology deployments. Bosch Software Innovations is working with various customers to enhance the operational performance of manufacturing plants both internally and externally. At this session, explore Bosch’s approach for enabling smart manufacturing operations in the IoT and learn about the company's success in implementing IoT-based solutions at manufacturing plants. Also view a live demo of a solution that a global car manufacturer implemented to enhance its safety-critical tightening processes.
Through the advent of cyber physical systems, productivity and efficiency are being driven by smarter control and secure connected systems across a broad base of industrial applications. Real-time acquisition, analysis, and subsequent control “at the edge” is becoming the standard for cyber physical systems. These systems are now expected to have intelligent awareness including real-time processing capability, secure connectivity with increased performance and reduced footprint and power consumption. This session shows a comparison of traditional industrial control architectures and design approaches to new innovative programmable SoC architectures and design methodologies to realize cyber physical systems.
This session will outline the opportunities and challenges associated with scaling IoT solutions. Shahram Mehraban, Director of Industrial and Energy Solutions Division at Intel, will review market trends and key industry challenges with scaling IoT, as well as strategies that will allow industry to accelerate the benefits IoT solutions bring.
The world economy is facing enormous pressures to manufacturing domain for a fast, flexible, and scalable production with higher quality. This drives manufacturing companies to search for innovative developments to achieve those requirements. Plug-and-produce devices, robots and machines are key enablers to embrace the conceptual transformation to the Cyber-Physical Production Systems paradigm, aiming to deploy it into production environments. A case-study for the Future of Aircraft Factory will show how the use of an Open Robotic Interface permits to achieve a Platform Based Design and Real Time performances for the automation of assembly and check operations of aircraft components.
With the Internet of Things (IoT) condition monitoring and predictive maintenance testbed environment that IBM and NI jointly created under the umbrella of the Industrial Internet Consortium, this presentation demonstrates a scenario using data continuously monitored from an industrial system to visualize measurement data and apply predictive maintenance analytics with a cloud service. Learn how to integrate and apply complementary NI and IBM IoT technologies to deliver real-time decision making. Also explore how to take advantage of IoT connectivity to the cloud to rapidly deliver new business services.
The Industrial Internet Consortium has established two critical goals for its reference architecture: interoperability and security. Without both, the promise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) cannot be achieved. The Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA) establishes an open framework to realize these two goals. Underpinning the IIRA is a secure standards-based databus and gateway-based communication. At this session, get an overview of the IIRA’s databus and gateway-based connectivity framework and then discuss the benefits of providing communications security in a data-centric implementation using the DDS standard to protect against malicious insiders better and trade off needed security with performance in IIoT systems.
Join a panel discussion to explore designing and building the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT has evolved into an advanced connection of products, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications; nevertheless, designers must still speculate how their work fits into this picture. Through an open dialogue, examine how engineers and scientists should approach the IoT and how they can shape the ecosystem in the future.
Historically, the overall coordination of the electric power system has primarily been delivered through centralized management systems. This mode of operation has served the utility industry well for a number of years. However, a new model using both centralized and distributed information management is necessary because of the evolution of more intelligent field devices that generate massive amounts of data and because of the dynamic landscape of distributed generation, bidirectional load flow, and customer-driven technologies. Attend this session to hear how Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, such as open publish/subscribe messaging protocols like DDS and MQTT, can help meet some of our energy challenges moving forward.
Li-Fi (light fidelity) technology uses light waves instead of radio technology to deliver data. Li-Fi is a bidirectional, networked, mobile, high-speed data communication technology that complements Wi-Fi and features the benefits of greater capacity, security, and energy efficiency. At this session, learn how University of Edinburgh researchers have shown that solar cells can be used for Li-Fi detectors and have demonstrated speeds of up to 45 Mb/s. This provides a new avenue for self-powered autonomous wireless transceivers. Also see demonstrations of the huge opportunities Li-Fi and solar cell receivers have created for the Internet of Things.
