IoT Sensors for Industry 4.0
Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is fundamentally transforming industry and business. It has been dubbed Industry 4.0 (the fourth industrial revolution). New levels of productivity and growth can be unleashed by sensing what matters to businesses and applying actionable intelligence. It starts with sensor devices. In this seminar, Roman will lead us to walk through the big picture of a modern IoT system and focus on what makes embedded sensor devices tick. Roman will describe the trends behind the sensor innovation that are dramatically driving lower cost and power, while increasing performance. He will also cover the latest low-power, long-range wireless communication technologies that will be powering the upcoming IoT solutions - LoRaWAN, SigFox, Ingenu, Weightless, and NB-IoT. Roman will show how efficient energy harvesting to power these low power sensors and wireless radios is quickly becoming a reality. The talk will conclude with a live demonstration of a full IoT system, utilizing LoRaWAN - one of the latest communication technologies - showing all system components working together. We are on the brink of next industrial revolution. Don't miss it!
