Developer Day 2017
Forum 4: Standardization & Research

RFID and Wireless IoT par excellence!

Lectures in 2017

Get to know the technical, political, and normative framework for RFID projects from users, associations, and political representatives, and hear from leading European research institutes which future technology and applications can already be leveraged today.
The RFID industry is facing huge challenges, but also great opportunities.

Frithjof Walk
Chairman, AIM-D, and President, AIM Europe
Quo vadis, RFID? As a partner of RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2017, AIM supports the forum "Standardisation & Research“ on Developer Day, September 27. The keynote speech by Frithjof Walk, Chairman of AIM-D and President of AIM Europe, will outline the status of the RFID industry today - as well as possible future developments.
UHF RFID – Will Europe Continue to Deviate?

UHF RFID – Will Europe Continue to Deviate?

Josef Preishuber-Pfügl
Executive Vice-President CTO, Business Manager RFID+NFC, CISC Semiconductor
The success on RAIN RFID / UHF RFID is based on standard that have been published already 4 years ago: GS1 EPC Gen2V2 and ISO/IEC 18000-63. So the question is addressed what will come next. Additionally, this session will cover an update on the situation of the European radio regulations. UHF RFID has been released for the 915-921 MHz Band in Europe, however, implementation got stuck. The question on a potential movement forward and the changes for a global future 900-930 MHz band will be discussed.
Requirements on Technology and Standards Developments on Behalf of the Industry

Requirements on Technology and Standards Developments on Behalf of the Industry

Steve Halliday
President, RAIN RFID
RFID is not a new technology, in fact it started way back in the early part of the last century, but adoption of RFID has been slow until now. Steve will look at the impact of standards on the adoption of the technology and the need for a brand to grow the market.
The Latest EU Network Information Security Directive – Impacts on RFID?

The Latest EU Network Information Security Directive – Impacts on RFID?

Dr. Florent Frederix
European Commission, DG CONNECT, Cybersecurity & Digital Privacy – Unit H 1
EU security guidelines require critical sectors such as Health, Energy, Transport, Finance, and telecom services to ensure cybersecurity. Cybersecurity for these sectors, which rely on systems with a lifetime of 20+ years, means controlling access to the network and data repositories. Authentication and authorisation technologies, such as RFID, are enabling technologies to make this cybersecurity leap. In addition, the presentation will also announce the 4,000,000€ inducement prize that the EU will award to the individual or organisation that can present the best seamless authentication solution – a perfect challenge for RFID experts!
Printed RFID – science fiction or next big thing?

Printed RFID – science fiction or next big thing?

Alexander Mityashin, PhD
Program Manager Thin-Film Electronics, Imec
“Printed electronics” has been a buzzword for almost a decade, with RFID applications as one of the headline endeavours. So are we getting any closer to seeing ubiquitously printed RFID tags and sensors in everyday objects? This presentation gives a status update of the applied research work at imec and Holst Centre and sheds light on latest achievements and opportunities in transferring new RFID technologies to the industry.
Holography of Wi-Fi Radiation Provides 3D Image of the Environment

Holography of Wi-Fi Radiation Provides 3D Image of the Environment

Dr. Friedemann Reinhard
Head of Group Emmy Noether Research Group on Quantum Sensing, Walter Schottky Institut der Technischen Universität München
Scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a holographic imaging method that analyses the radiation of a WLAN transmitter and thus generates three-dimensional images of the environment. The process could be used, for example, in the context of Industry 4.0: This way, operators of industrial plants could automatically follow objects on their way through the factory hall in the future.
RFID Based Sensors for Construction 4.0

RFID Based Sensors for Construction 4.0

Prof. Roland Kueng
Full Professor, Zurich University of Applied Sciences, School of Engineering
A passive RFID based sensor system with energy harvesting that measures mechanical stress in reinforcing steel was developed at the Centre for Signal Processing and Communications Engineering (ZSN) at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), Switzerland. The monitoring of building constructions which are made of reinforced concrete for the most parts of the world will be of increasing significance in the future to determine the current condition, structural safety and fatigue behavior of the constructions.
RFID Sensors Enable Automated Bridge Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance

RFID Sensors Enable Automated Bridge Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance

Christoph Strangfeld, Ph.D.
Fachbereich Zerstörungsfreie Schadensdiagnose und Umweltmessverfahren, Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung
The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) wants to detect corrosion of dilapidated bridges in its early stages by embedding component-integrated sensor technology in reinforced concrete and to also enable early reparations via predictive maintenance. In the “KonSens” project, both HF and UHF transponders are being tested. After a comprehensive test phase in the laboratory, the solution will be ready for market deployment and will be commercialised together with partners in the next 18 months.
Benefits for RTLS Applications Through LPWAN, p.e. LoRA at Halle-Leipzig Airport

Benefits for RTLS Applications Through LPWAN, p.e. LoRA at Halle-Leipzig Airport

Hon.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Richter
Manager, Material Handling Engineering and Systems / Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF
The talk is based on comprehensive technology know-how and examines the performance, reach, challenges and advantages for applications – not only in theory, but also via the concrete example of a Fraunhofer IFF cooperation project with Leipzig / Halle Airport and an industrial partner.
