This event has now passed but if you’d like to get involved next year, please get in touch.

The audience will be made up of IoT specialists, device manufacturers, system integrators and platform architects from organisations who want to keep abreast of all the important, current and future IoT developments from emerging technologies and user cases.

Our aim is to create a community of experienced, forward thinking IoT practitioners and hear from recognised specialists and experts from the industry at large.

This is a forum where advances in current and future IoT technology can be put forward and considered, alliances made, working case studies discussed and the formation of a working community in IoT.

Optimising for Low Power IoT

Mark Dunnet (Embedded Pro) – ‘Optimising firmware for low power’ will provide a useful overview of the typical requirements of an MCU for IoT applications. Referencing popular NXP and ST MCU’s as examples and will cover the respective IDE’s for building firmware apps and discuss the nuts and bolts of the firmware design considerations.
Tom Willis (SAFT) – will take us through ‘Which long life battery?’, explaining the battery landscape and exploring which chemistries map to which use case.

Beyond dashboards

Kai Hackbarth, (Bosch Software) – will talk about ‘The Smart Edge’. Not all devices need to send all of their data to the cloud, often they only should be sending specific data when conditions are broken/met etc. Kai will discuss the power of EDGE computing/analytics on a device.
David Becquet, (Software AG) – will cover off the power of what can be done with IoT data when it is in the cloud, it’s not always about dashboards it will be more about acting on the data in real time with other systems.
