Impact, Importance and Inclusion of IOT in Product Manufacturing

John Chambers noted that by 2020, 40% of Fortune 500 companies will not exist. IOT is allowing manufacturers to keep up with the paradigm shift of expected after sale product enhancement. Attendees will understand the changing market environment, how cloud computing can address the need to stay on top of this change, what to look for in an IOT cloud platform in order to be successful in manufacturing, and how platforms can help you without needing to also change your IT business. Mark Wright, Director of Product Management, Ayla Networks


Enabling Smart Sensor and IoT Applications with Application Specific Instruction Set Processors

The demands of IoT and Smart sensor designs is breaking the one size fits all paradigm of traditional embedded design. To achieve the power, performance, and cost requirements, new solutions are needed. Application Specific Instruction-set Processors (ASIP) deliver the ability to optimize a processor to the exact needs of the design. However, traditional ASIP design techniques have required expertise beyond the reach of most SoC design teams. In this presentation we will show how a new approach, combined with advanced automation, makes ASIP practical for any IoT design. We will utilize a smart sensor example to demonstrate the process, however the approach is applicable to many other IoT type devices. Neil Hand, VP Marketing, Codasip


Building Industrial Internet Solutions using MicroServices based Architecture

We will discuss topics like data access level security for patient cases, concurrency, and event loops and how they play into building secure, responsive, resilient, scalable application In addition we will discuss on how OSGI based  Machine gateway built for Industrial Machines is used to collect data from various sensors on Industrial Wind Turbine and the data analyze. We will discuss topics like Big Data Analytics , Stream processing and how it is used to build mission critical industrial applications. Jayant Thomas, Sr. Engineering Manager, GE Software


Complex Event Processing Model in IoT

There are different characteristics and dimensions to every IoT application; yet they also have some commonalities. These are mainly in terms of, connecting different objects, to sense physical awareness, in order to achieve rich interactivity amongst things, empowered by intelligent decision making systems. Even though more focus is on end results, we cannot undermine the importance of frameworks and methods that enable processing of events that arrive from heterogeneous sources like sensors, RFID readers, GPS etc. During this session a detailed walk-through of some real-world case studies will enable audience to understand the role of different frameworks in a complex event processing. Umesh Kanade, General Manager -Technology Solutions, Harbinger Systems


Data Analytics Techniques for IoT Sensor Data

As more and more devices are connected to the internet and as the data from these devices is aggregated in the Cloud, there is an increasing need to analyze this data in order to gain insight and take action on the data. In this paper, we will demonstrate several different techniques to clean- up and analyze data from real IoT data streams. To demonstrate these analytical techniques, we will look at data from different IoT edge devices including a weather station and an instrumented beverage dispenser. The data from these edge nodes is sent to ThingSpeak, a free IoT data aggregator. We then use MATLAB to retrieve this data, remove outliers, find trends, change the time granularity of the data, perform basic statistics on the data, and replace missing data with interpolated data. Eric Wetjen, Product Manager, MathWorks


Protocols and Standards for Internet of Things

There is a broad set of protocols and standards that are available in the IOT space. The objective of all the protocols is the application data transfer, processing and communication with the devices. All these protocols differ in their implementation, data transfer capabilities, communication , security, strength and weaknesses. It is really confusing how to choose the right protocol and standards for the right set of use case. We will take a look at basic protocols and standards, its advantages and disadvantages, deployment challenges and methodology to choose the right protocol with respect to the use cases. Saghar Abbas, Senior Technical Manager, Mindtree Limited


Semiconductor Technologies of the Future for IoT

The IoT market demands a low cost and ultra-low power ASIC, and this is where the former process nodes (180nm, 90nm etc.) are more appealing. Moreover, low-power design schemes, IP tuned for IoT applications, security architecture for IoT applications and ultra-low power cores need to be considered for making a compelling IoT ASIC. Also at this stage the IoT market seems to be more driven by software, but the scenario will soon change when the demand of running imaging algorithms, fusion stack, and other DSP functions in hardware will arise. The key thing to consider here is that not everything could be put into hardware, so partitioning becomes important. To achieve an optimum solution, a clear understanding of which elements should be partitioned in hardware and/or software is necessary. Kalpesh Sanghvi, Sr. System Design Eng., Open-Silicon Inc.


IoT Integrity: How to Control the Expansion of Endpoints for Test

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the feedback or functionality of various IoT endpoints (sensors or devices), your brand reputation depends upon each of the many moving parts being secure, reliable, and compliant. To truly protect your brand, it’s critical to ensure that each third-party endpoint you leverage is truly aligned with your organization’s business priorities. After all, if your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won’t care if that failure stems from code you developed internally or from a component that you’ve integrated. If you consume it, you own it. So what can you do to ensure that the endpoints you leverage actually enhance, not erode, your brand? Wayne Ariola, Chief Strategy Officer, Parasoft  


Bridging the Multicore Applications in the IoT: Sensor to the Cloud

Sharing data in the multi/many core devices in the IoT is more than a partitioning memory. This presentation looks at the IoT from a software development perspective of the sharing data from the sensor to cloud. The challenges in the flow include writing software for edge device communications APIs to moving data to the applications processor to communicating with the cloud. Today’s challenges are highlighted. Then, the presentation provides a vision for securing data and moving data in the IoT, that is, to/from the sensor and to/for the cloud. Sven Brehmer, CEO, PolyCore Software


Lessons Learned From Successful Medical Multicore Software Development

In order to benefit from progress in hardware, software development faces a paradigm change to parallelism. In the medical domain, this has even more impact. Certification of software is expensive. Therefore, reuse is mandatory and the life-cycle of software is much longer than that of hardware. To utilize the potential of multicore systems, software architects are recommended to have a closer look on scalability, granularity and decoupling. For illustration of the lessons learned from successful multicore software development, examples are shown. Which and how design decisions contribute to sustainable solutions and a personal forecast of major trends are presented. Matthias Pruksch, IT-Architect, sepp.med gmbh


Runtime Analysis of Parallel Applications for Industrial Software Development

Utilizing the parallelism offered by multicore CPUs is hard, though profiling and tracing are established techniques to understand, debug, engineer, and optimize codes. While many tools are available to capture profiles and traces, these tools are often difficult to use in industrial contexts. Tool development often started with sequential codes to transition to parallelism not until later, resulting in improper feature sets and usability. In contrast, parallel tools are often targeted towards HPC. As this renders these tools less suitable for codes using alternative threading models (POSIX, Qt, and ACE), this talk presents extensions to the open-source tools Score-P and Scalasca. Score-P captures detailed execution data allowing Scalasca to perform an automatic performance analysis. Tobias Schuele, Senior Key Expert, Siemens
