Making Sense of Smart Sensors: Not as Easy as it Looks!

Brian Clark Brian Clark

The power of the Internet of Things (IoT) is clear: A world connected by sensors will enable organizations to significantly increase the efficiency of their resources while lowering costs and risk. However, this ideal IoT-powered world does not reflect reality. Utilizing the strategy of patching together IoT software solutions from open-source components to manage sensor data oversimplifies the ingest process and puts businesses in a dangerous position should a particular tool fail. This presentation will discuss the pitfalls of this DIY approach and reveal what to seek in a solution to analyze data relationships, guarantee transactionality, and dramatically improve performance.

A Gateway to IoT – Connecting the Unconnected

David SmithDavid Smith
MultiTech Systems

This talk will explore how customers particularly in the industrial space are harnessing the power of IoT, through low but robust bit rates where cellular struggles to reach and often where access to electricity is not an option. One scheme for addressing this is known as LoRa®. It gains its name from the fact that it is able to provide 'LongRange' communications using very low power levels. LoRa is a wireless technology developed to enable low data rate communications to be made over long distances by sensors and actuators for M2M and Internet of Things, IoT applications.

Beyond the Industrial Internet – Using the Digital Thread for Contextual Insight

Jennifer BennettJennifer Bennett
GE Digital

While the Industrial Internet may be new to some, early adopters are starting to understand the benefits of the "Digital Thread" – a data web created once the Industrial Internet journey was initiated. The digital thread is the result of several advanced manufacturing initiatives, creating a seamless flow of data between previously isolated systems. This data is essentially the manufacturing health record, which includes data from everything to operator logs to weather patterns, and can be added to as needed. This record provides data context and correlations between downtimes and outside factors, allowing operators to be proactive in their maintenance strategies.

IoT-Driven Analytics for Smart Homes

Marilyn WolfMarilyn Wolf
Georgia Institute of Technology

We will describe algorithms and system architectures for rich, behavior-oriented analytics for smart homes. Many current IoT applications are singular Internet-of-Thing, in which a smartphone interface is added to an existing device. To move toward a true Internet-of-Things, we need to understand the relationships between devices and how they are used by people. We can use advanced algorithms, such as Markov Chain Monte Carlo event analysis, to extract long-term activity of people from a set of sparse sensors in a smart home. We will frame the problem using our practical experience with smart home applications, describe edge/cloud architectures for IoT analytics, and introduce new event-driven activity analysis algorithms.

Pushing the Envelope in Form and Functionality of Wearables

Piyush SevaliaPiyush Sevalia

IoT devices, and wearables in particular, must meet certain size and power consumption requirements. At the same time these devices are increasing in functionality. For designers of wearables, these requirements are seemingly conflicting and challenging to meet. How have designers been able to continue to reduce device size while increasing battery life and functionality? MEMS technologies are one of the key enablers in supporting these trends. While MEMS sensors have been at the forefront, MEMS-based timing solutions have quietly begun to proliferate in wireless applications that demand the smallest form factors and lowest power. This presentation will introduce a clocking architecture based on the combination of miniature, micro-power, high-accuracy clock source that allows the system to stay in sleep mode for longer periods.
