[Embedded Live Theater] Managing Resource Utilization in Embedded Components

Resource Utilization (memory, CPU, network) is a primary concern when developing deeply embedded software components or deploying software into a SWAP constrained environment.  Gaining insight into memory utilization within your infrastructure components is necessary for architects and engineers as they develop and deploy these systems, but this can be particularly challenging when using commercial software. Learn the tools and techniques necessary to avoid mismanaged system resources that often lead to reduced scalability, poor performance, and increased deployment costs.

[Embedded Live Theater] Develop Secure Sensor Application Code Properly: Use an Automated Tool Suite
The Internet of Things has created a variety of new endpoints – from network printers and “smart” light bulbs, to any of a thousand types of sensor. These sensors often use unsophisticated microprocessors, with few hardware security features. It is therefore vital that they run secure application code. This presentation will discuss how a best-practice development process can provide that code, and how an automated tool suite can make such a process effective and efficient.

[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.

Detection of environment air pollutants, especially toxic gas is important and critical to public health, environment and industry. Nitrogen oxide (NO2), carbon monoxide (CO), and formaldehyde are the most common and toxic air pollutants, which can be generated from combustion or automotive emissions. It is crucially important to develop high performance sensors that are capable of detecting low concentrations of these toxic gases in air accurately, reliably and quickly. Here, we report the integration of nanostructured material on a microheater-based sensing platform to achieve fast, sensitive, selective, and stable gas sensing.

[IoT Ecosystem Theater] What's Next for Sensors and IoT - Bluetooth

For IoT developers, it is well known that there is no one size fits all solution for connectivity needs in the IoT. In this session, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group will give developers an in-depth look at the three major Bluetooth connectivity models that are driving the majority of the IoT, including low energy and continuous point-to-point connections, broadcast, and mesh networking. These Bluetooth connectivity models are being used in smart buildings, industries, cities, and numerous other IoT use cases. The newest connectivity model, Bluetooth mesh, allows for wireless sensor networks of tens, hundreds or thousands of devices to reliably and securely communicate. What’s more, device communication can now extend far beyond the direct radio range of a device and cover entire office blocks, airports, hospitals, or factory floors. So: What’s the right connectivity model for your IoT solution? Geared towards engineers and developers, attendees of this session will get a look “under the hood” at available Bluetooth connectivity models. They will also learn more about how they can use Bluetooth technology to generate new product offerings and revenue streams for their organizations.

[Embedded Live Theater] A Strategy Proposal for the Rapid Adoption and Deployment of IIoT Technology

The growth of IIoT, while impressive, has been impeded in recent years by several factors affecting its adoption and deployment. The success of an IIoT solution depends on a thorough understanding of these factors in the context of the IIoT application. With our impressive background in sensor solutions for IIoT applications, we have crafted a framework to facilitate understanding of critical parameters before working on an IIoT solution.
