Embedded Hands-On Workshop: Prototype an IoT Sensor Node with a Microchip MPLAB Xpress Eval Board
With a complimentary MPLAB Xpress Eval Board, attendees will learn how to develop an embedded sensor node prototype that captures humidity, temperature, and pressure data. They will speed through configuration of the Microchip microcontroller and Bosch BME280 sensor using MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) graphical programming interface. The tool will generate free libraries with simple APIs so attendees can spend time working on their solution instead of messing with registers or communication protocols.

Attendees do not need to install any tools on their computers, as this entire workshop will use the cloud based MPLAB Xpress IDE. All sensor data will be graphed on their computer via an on-board USB-to-serial adapter. Attendees will be shown how to move the solution to a wireless communication method using the same tools, transforming from a simple wired sensor to an IoT or wearable solution.

https://www.microchip.com/mplab/mplab-xpress

Attendees must bring:
  • A computer with Wi-Fi, Windows/Mac/Linux OS, a standard browser and an available USB port (be sure to have the latest version of Java installed)
  • A Micro USB cable
  • A terminal program, such as Putty, CoolTerm, or TeraTerm

[IoT Ecosystem Theater] Understanding How Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) Brings IoT to Everyone

In recent years, the cost of sensors has decreased and the network capabilities designed to connect these sensors have evolved.  As a result, businesses, campuses, and municipalities no longer face a question of whether a wide area IoT deployment is possible—instead, the biggest question is how to best implement wide area IoT solutions. 

Since the requirements for every IoT application are different, a connectivity strategy that may be ideal for one application may fail for another.  With the wrong network, application developers are at risk of offering an IoT solution that is either too expensive to manage or one that fails to meet objectives. LPWAN, or Low Power Wide Area Network, is a network category designed to operate with little power and send data over wide areas.  LPWAN works well in situations where small amounts of data need to be sent up to 30 miles from sensors that will be in place for up to 10 years.  It offers key benefits that include a long communications range, deep penetration indoors and underground, long-lasting batteries, the security of choosing a proven technology with an extensive global footprint, and cost-effective connectivity.

There are several LPWAN technologies in the market today, but one of the network protocols quickly gaining the most global traction is LoRaWAN.  In its May 2017 analysis of LPWAN technologies, Gartner recommended the development of LoRa-integrated solutions to minimize long-term viability risk and maximize market share potential.

In addition to selecting a network type with the right technical capabilities to support your IoT solution, you’ll also need to select a network service provider.  The attributes you’ll want to consider as you evaluate a network service provider include affordability, network maturity, reliability, and security. 

Attending this session will help you:

  • Know when—and why—to use cellular vs. LPWAN connectivity.
  • Understand the differences among LPWAN networks.
  • Develop a list of considerations for finding the network service provider that’s right for you.
  • Learn how other organizations and municipalities have used LPWAN to solve critical problems and build innovative and economically advantageous IoT solutions

[Sensors Live Theater] Connecting the Unconnected: Security in the Age of IoT
The rapid transition from closed/private networks to enterprise-wide networks over the public Internet is uncovering security risks that went previously unnoticed—and justifiably raising alarms about the future of cybersecurity in the age of IoT. Moreover, as enterprises become increasingly reliant on intelligent, interconnected devices in every aspect of their business, OEMs must ask themselves if they are doing enough to protect vulnerable systems that could compromise sensitive data, personal privacy or threaten public safety.

EM3: Layer IIoT Security on a Hardware Root of Trust

This session discusses the importance of providing layered security co-located with fundamental device content for better overall endpoint protection and resilience. An important aspect of this is migrating mutable software roots of trust to hardware roots of trust. A strong case can be made for a hardware core root of trust for measurement (CRTM). While often existing as a software RoT, the CRTM can be vulnerable to numerous attacks and if compromised the whole system becomes "rooted" and untrustworthy. Hardware roots and layered security can mitigate these attacks.

MEMS4: Creating High-Resolution Environmental Insights Using Sensor Networks and Big Data
According to the World Health Organization, poor air quality affects 92% of people worldwide. Air quality measurements do not exist in many regions of the world. For places with measurement, existing networks do not provide information on the variability of pollution in neighborhoods and at the street level. Building on advances in small sensors, cloud computing, and big data analysis, Aclima has developed a next-generation sensor network platform that enable wide scale monitoring of the quality of our environment. Recent work using Aclima’s mobile platform in California has demonstrated that air pollution is hyper local, significantly varying over the length scale of a city block. The type of data made possible by large-scale sensing has the potential to be transformative, enabling researchers, public health experts, and policy makers to better understand and quantify the impact of hyper local pollution on communities and to make better decisions on where to focus efforts to improve human health and combat climate change.

Keynote: The Search for Life in Our Solar System: Opportunities for Sensor Development
This Keynote Session examines innovative concepts and technologies aimed at the search for life in our solar system. Repeated cycles of freezing and melting water have occurred throughout Mars' history and represent a potentially habitable environment to search for modern life. This session also examines other potentially habitable environments in our solar system -- the icy satellites of Jupiter and Saturn. Recent missions have provided strong evidence of liquid water interiors on Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s moon Enceladus. The ice-covered ocean environments have all the requirements needed to support modern life, although it is not known whether life can originate in such environments. The only mission to ever search for modern life on another planet was the two Viking missions that landed on Mars in 1976... and since that time, progress on developing sensor technology and mission strategy to search for modern life has been limited. Join us as Carol examines the recent surge of interest in detecting life in our solar system and the new sensor systems and approaches needed to move the research forward.

Securing the IoT and Embedded Systems: A Workshop from Trusted Computing Group

Embedded and IoT systems and networks remain highly vulnerable to attacks, whether malicious or accidental. These attacks result in lost personal and corporate data, legal fines, lost customer trust and lost services – or they can also simply shut down critical infrastructure, from oil and gas pipelines to manufacturing to the financial system. Despite the obvious security concerns, manufacturers worldwide continue churning out unprotected, connected things based on networks that were not intended to handle the security, traffic or things suddenly tied together. What can be done?

With Embedded Computing Design, Trusted Computing Group (TCG) will offer a session to discuss and demonstrate real-world solutions and technologies, based on widely vetted and adopted standards, to secure embedded and IoT systems, networks and data. The session will address the role and implementation of a root of trust, the development of secure software to support a root of trust and how we can embed trust and security into networks. Experts also will demonstrate examples of these technologies and talk about resources and tools to implement them.

All Sensors Expo attendees can attend free of charge; must opt in during registration or in the Attendee Resource Center. Limited space available!

FW4: Printed, Flexible, Stretchable and Functional Fabric Sensors: Opportunities for Wearables, IoT, and Other High-Volume Applications

In recent years, there has been an exponential growth in the field of flexible, printed, wearable and organic large-area electronics and sensors. These new electronics and sensors are fabricated on flexible plastic or paper substrates as well as on/in fabrics, which offer advantages such as mechanical flexibility, shape conformity, light weight and low profile. The judicious use of these substrates/carrier platforms enables low-cost and high-speed manufacturing of devices over large areas using printing technologies in a Roll-to-Roll production line. Targeted applications include wearables, environmental monitoring and eHealth.

Recently, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) awarded $75M to FlexTech Alliance to establish and manage a San Jose-based facility to create a Manufacturing Innovation Institute for Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE MII). Additionally, the recent award of $75M, also by the US DoD, with $250M in matching grants from regional governments, industry and academia for the creation of a research and development consortia, Advanced Functional Fabrics of America (AFFOA), headed by MIT for the development of sensors and other electronic functions has validated the potential of this technology to create “smart fabrics” for consumer and military wearable applications.

This session provides an overview of printed, flexible, stretchable, functional fabric sensors and accompanying electronics and the applications that they are currently enabling as well as their future application opportunities. Examples from current suppliers as well as highlights from leading international research organizations will be addressed.

In addition to these sensors, this session also addresses the challenges of their integration with other functional element of basic Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable applications and the manufacturing issues to create these heterogeneous and hybrid solutions from both a batch mode and continuous process. Concluding presentation topics include barriers to the successful commercialization and recommended strategies for monetization opportunities of these technologies.
