Developer Day 2017
Forum 2: Wireless IoT
RFID and Wireless IoT par excellence!
Lectures in 2017
Digitalisation offers enormous potential for all industries. The challenges: connectivity, interoperability, and security. Data architects, system experts and representatives from RAIN RFID and the OPC foundation explain how you can bring your processes and business models into the IoT.
What is the best route into Industry 4.0 and IoT?
Senior VP Cross Industries & IoT, T-Systems
The growth of the internet knows only one direction: upwards. But the Internet itself is just the start of the IoT. Experts expect over 50 billion devices to be connected in the IoT by 2020. The potential number of networkable objects has been estimated at more than 1.5 trillion. The IoT offers enormous potential for industrial production as well as for new service and business models. But what is the correct individual way into the IoT? This lecture presents application-oriented and technological solutions.
OPC UA Makes the Industry Ready for the IoT
Executive Director, Ascolab
OPC UA is already a standard technology for combining IoT and Industry 4.0. Not only because Microsoft Azure Cloud, SAP Hana Cloud, and Siemens MindSphere Cloud communicate with devices via OPC UA, but especially because OPC UA does not belong to a single company, because it is Open Source, because it is secure, and because data can be modelled.
Bringing Together IT And OT With OPC UA
Senior Director, Industry Services, Global Manufacturing Practice, Microsoft
For technology company Microsoft, the combination of Information Technology and Operational Technology is one of the core elements of Industry 4.0. Companies need support bridging these two worlds. Microsoft relies on OPC UA to solve this challenge. With OPC UA, programmers and machine engineers can use their trusted tools while collaborating with one another.
Integration of Passive RFID Sensor Transponders Into Secure Environments
Dr. Andreas Weder
Business Unit Wireless Microsystems, Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS
Scientists of Fraunhofer IPMS develop and realise UHF RFID passive sensors. Without the need for a battery, these sensors are practically maintenance free and have a nearly indefinite lifespan. This enables gathering data from dangerous or hard to reach locations. The solution enables real-time monitoring of different parameters enabling predictive maintenance. A standardised connection via OPC UA allows an integration of the sensors into industrial software environments, mobile, and cloud applications.
Security Nightmares in the Internet of Things: Electronic Locks and More
Dr. Timo Kasper
Director, Kasper & Oswald
Wireless embedded devices are predominant in the IoT: Objects tagged with RFID and NFC technology, smartphones, and other embedded tokens interact from device to device and thereby often process information that is security or privacy relevant for humans. For protecting sensitive data and preventing attacks, many embedded devices employ cryptographic algorithms and authentication schemes. In the past years, various vulnerabilities have been found in commercial products that enable to bypass the security mechanisms.
RAIN applications and RAIN technologies for the IoT
Director Segment Manager RFID Solutions, Secure Transactions and Identification, NXP Semiconductors
The IoT is changing the way we interact with devices at home, at work and in the world around us. New opportunities and challenges are created by the rapid growth of electronic content, the demand for connectivity and networking bandwidth, and the proliferation of smart mobile devices. RAIN RFID technologies are the basis for countless applications in areas like track and trace, improved inventory accuracy, better consumer protection, or decreased shrinkage in industry, logistics, retail, or healthcare.
RAIN RFID is a backbone of the Internet of Things
President, RAIN RFID
RAIN RFID connects billions of items to the Internet. RAIN RFID offers a simple solution to enable passive objects to communicate valuable data, identifying each specific object at an exact place and time. This unique identification allows these objects to become connected within the IoT. Offering a combination of proven technology and mainstream applications, with a focus on robust interoperability, RAIN RFID adds intelligence to the IoT value chain and facilitates new applications for connected assets.
Smart Santander Deploys IoT Solutions on all City Levels and Sets Standards
Juan Echevarria Cuenca
Innovation Technical Manager, Santander City Council
3,000 sensors control inner city traffic and facilitate the search for a parking spot. 2,500 smart RFID waste bins optimise waste disposal services. Citizens can report and track potholes and construction defects via an app. Santander does not just talk 'Smart City', but is actively living it.
Using Cutting-Edge Digital Technologies to Create Intelligent Cities and Buildings
Head of Communications, Carlo Ratti Associati
The international design and innovation office Carlo Ratti Associati investigate the ways in which new technologies, including digital sensors and portable devices, are changing both the built environment and everyday life. The studio aims to develop innovative design projects, merging high-profile architecture and urban planning with cutting-edge digital technologies, so as to contribute to the creation of intelligent cities and buildings.
Telematics, Apps, Bluetooth Smart – the automated future is networked and expandable
Head of Business Development & Product Support, Openmatics
Bluetooth Smart for logistics optimization enables location information and identification, and displays additional information about acceleration, impacts, temperature, light, and air humidity. The technology base for the innovative application is Microsoft Azure. Second, custom add-ons are a notable advantage of an open telematics platform. The range of services can be expanded with additional apps at will. In addition, third-party suppliers, as is common with smartphone applications, are permitted to develop their own apps and make them available on the platform.
