Solutions for the Globally Connected Population
Buildings are where people live, work, eat, shop, learn and heal. However rapid urban growth (approximately 2/3rd of world’s population will be urban by 2050 according to United Nations) is putting increasing strains on buildings and corresponding infrastructure across the globe. At the same time an ageing population, pollution and climate change present significant challenges and constraints on how these buildings are designed, constructed and used during their lifetime. Collaboration of construction, real estate and technology industries is the path to delivering more sustainable, responsive and resilient buildings while at the same time providing value to its investors and providing a comfortable, safe and productive environment for its occupants. Internet of Things (IoT) technologies will allow us mitigate these challenges while addressing the needs of an ever more connected population. Intelligence has the potential to better peoples’ lives all over the world and make them happier. This can start with the buildings we spend so much of our time in. What will connected intelligence buy us? It’ll allow buildings to optimize resources and reduce operating expenditures while improving comfort, health, productivity, safety and security of its occupants. This will undeniably enhance the building’s responsiveness and resilience to external factors. Now, a smart building is only as smart as the data it captures and the intelligence it derives from that. We need technology to be ubiquitous yet invisible; omniscient yet secure; powerful yet incredibly efficient. For that we have to start with the needs of the occupants rather than the capabilities of today’s technology. Technology should be an invisible enabler rather than an end in and of itself. This session will discuss how the underlying technologies of IoT, such as embedded operating systems, machine learning and artificial intelligence, are already future proofing today’s buildings while spurring the innovation that will underpin those inhabited by our children. It will present a topography for such IoT implementations in buildings that includes sensors, nodes, gateways, the connecting glue and the supporting applications that will deliver IoT’s benefits. It will also provide a roadmap of key technologies that will allow the audience to jump start their own Smart Building implementations.

Derive Value from IIoT in Production Industries
Sponsored by:   CFE Media
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) -- as a means to secure connectivity and contextualized intelligence – adds value in the worlds of process automation, enterprise-assets management and industrial-IT-based business operations.  In a plant environment, IIoT efforts might start with pervasive use of sensors and wireless to allow monitoring of things like pumps, motors, steam traps, heat exchangers, valves and piping systems. In process automation, by substituting open-computing for proprietary standards, IIoT-based integration encompasses legacy systems, to improve productivity of existing processes without major operations disruptions.   It isn’t just about hardware, firmware and middleware, however. It’s about powerful applications made possible by connectivity. This session is about how production environments can benefit from the possibilities inherent in the Internet of Things.

  • Tracks: 
Congratulations! You’ve taken the first steps to get that great IoT idea of yours into production. You’ve even hired a team of engineers to build out your dream. But in the rush to market, security (and software security in particular) cannot be an afterthought with IoT. Unlike a server crash in an enterprise environment, failure of an IoT device or component can result in direct physical harm. Think of medical devices. Or connected cars. Or industrial control systems. So, are you doing all you can to make sure your software does not contain weaknesses and vulnerabilities that could bite you later on down the road? In this talk I'll discuss the need for software testing, early and often, both known and unknown vulnerabilities. Not only for the code you create in house, but also for the code you adopt from outside sources -- up to 90% can come from sources outside of your control.  Topics covered include static analysis, fuzz testing, software composition analysis, interactive application security testing, and test optimization.

Overcoming the Natural Enemies of IIoT: Organizational Inertia, Cultural Bias, Task Saturation and More
  • Room:   Breakout Theater 1
  • Wednesday, November 02, 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM
  • Tracks: 
The Industrial IoT is a new, disruptive technology.  As such, there are many obstacles to its successful deployment. One way to think about this situation is to examine IoT’s natural enemies and explore how these enemies interact with the IoT technology and the implementation team. Organizations are reluctant to transform to a new operational model because individual judgments have been relied upon for decades. “Soft” factors driving this conservative attitude include:  Organizational inertia (habit).  We will continue to wrestle with this – it’s a natural human reaction to maintain the status quo.   Missing analytics.  We aren’t measuring productivity and efficiency accurately enough to make a compelling case for widespread adoption.   Cultural bias.  Staff believe only they can understand the unique situations and problems that are present in their operations.   Personal satisfaction.  Individuals have been the ultimate decision-makers and this carries with it a high level of prestige.  IoT is viewed as a threat to their prestige and to their position. Task saturation. This is an item that technology can solve if the context of decision-making can be fully understood.  Each of the issues listed above have been faced in other industries that have faced technological innovation and change.  How these industries addressed these challenges will be discussed.

The population of Nigeria is projected to surpass that of the U.S. by about 2050, at which point it would become the third most populous country in the world. Developing economies need infrastructure: power, water, agriculture, transportation, construction, healthcare and telecommunications. Will this infrastructure be built the 20th century way? Or, as we’ve already seen in China, will developing economies leapfrog and move to 21st century cellular technology and never use 20th century landlines? This talk will first describe a simple framework for IoT, which can be used by both software developers and business people. Next we’ll discuss the three business model implications to enterprises that build machines, e.g. wind turbines, gene sequencers, scissor lifts or combine harvesters.  Finally, we’ll cover the benefits of those precision machines on the fundamental infrastructure for the planet: power, water, construction agriculture, transportation and healthcare. The machines of the future are going to be composed of sophisticated sensors, powerful software and a range of actuators.  New features in these machines will arrive with a simple software release.  Just look at a Tesla to see an early example.  By connecting these machines to the cloud we’ll be able to apply advanced artificial intelligence that today helps Facebook recognize people or Google to beat the best Go player, to the challenges of providing the essential backbone services for the planet. Software truly has the potential to change the world.

  • Tracks: 
IIoT at the factory level promises significant increases in efficiency. But getting to a successful IIoT implementation requires knowledge, structure and resolve. Tangible value must be proven through business cases built on the savings and revenues created. Infrastructure—new radio spectrum networks will be critical, along with better IoT standards and greater sensor options. Coordination between the Operational Technology and Info Technology disciplines will be necessary. Both human and technical elements will be in play--new forms of data will have to be fed to production applications, while IT staff will need awareness of real-time plant activity to eliminate problems resulting in false alarms and wasted effort. All of this will requires a strong business and technical strategy, changes in operational and IT behaviors, and savvy change management techniques. This session outlines the barriers to effective IIoT implementation, along with tips and strategies for dealing with the challenge.

Securing IoT Devices with Measured Boot and Remote Attestation
Sponsored by:   Avnet
Trusted Platform Modules provide a cost-effective method of implementing a Measured Boot to ensure only verified software is loaded to a system. The Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC enables a root of trust using Secure Boot from the internal ROM, and RSA SHA-1 is used to authenticate partitions as they are loaded. Statistics are securely passed to the Remote Attestation server in the Cloud, where results are evaluated and the device can be validated for the network or excluded when violations are detected. End to end connectivity is possible using the infrastructure provided by Wind River Pulsar Linux, included with all Avnet Zynq SoMs.   In this two part session, we’ll begin by describing the multi-layer security that the Zynq-7000 provides including Measured Boot, leveraging the Infineon TPM, and conclude with details of the Cloud connectivity software on the embedded system and Remote Attestation Server operation. Together, these features provide a solid foundation for anyone interested in building new Industrial IoT devices.

Developing an IoT Project; Tales from the Trenches
Sponsored by:   RF Digital
I worked with hundreds of engineering and marketing people for over five years to turn Bluetooth® technology into "an overnight" success. There were many great ideas, (sometimes perhaps too many great ideas) but it wasn't a straight line from start to finish.  Many wrong turns were taken on the road to shipping over 3 billion devices per year.  As Executive Director of the Bluetooth SIG, I worked with many companies which had one piece of the puzzle. However, it was very difficult for them to put a complete solution in place. For a product to have any chance of commercial success, a multidisciplinary effort is required. What we learned is that creating a robust wireless technology which serves multiple industries is difficult. Creating a viable ecosystem for projects implementing that technology is even harder. Bluetooth plays an important part in many IoT solutions. However, it is just a part.  For a complete solution today, you need to also include mobile apps, network connectivity, backend services and web visualization.  This fact complicates product development.  What starts as a simple project often spirals out of control adding engineers, designers and managers.  Before anyone realizes what hit them, a team of 10 or more has spent a couple of years and millions of dollars with nothing to show for it.  Ranging from start-ups to fortune 500 companies, they all face the exact same problem. There is a better way.  The Simblee Alliance has been formed to make tomorrows IoT vision, become todays reality.  Come learn how to make your product a commercial success and become a leader in your market.

How Machine Builders Can Utilize the IoT for New Revenue Streams and Asset Management
  • Room:   Breakout Theater 1
  • Thursday, November 03, 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM
  • Tracks: 
New advances in multi-sensory inputs allow vending systems to collect more and more information about customers, Machine Performance and environmental factors. This allows for metadata combinations to enhance machines capabilities, customer demand data thus driving enhanced machine performance. Imagine a vending machine for soft serve ice cream that can sense temperature and adjust not only machine parameter for the perfect frozen treat but determine the demand and raise or lower the prices accordingly. Now take that same machine over a given city, state or region and do a price elasticity study with the stroke of a few keys. The power is unmatched in any brick and mortar location and can be changed on the fly. Now add the predictive service that can be incorporated and you have a capital asset set to maximize revenue for the owners. IoT and Machine sensor technology is at a pinnacle where only you imagination and creativity limits the experience.

IT/OT Convergence: The Impact from the Industrial Internet of Things
  • Room:   Keynote Theater
  • Thursday, November 03, 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM
  • Tracks: 
The integration of IT & OT promotes process management tools help ensure that every stakeholder in an organization has accurate information. As OT products such as PLCs and RTUs become more aligned with commercial software infrastructures, integrating OT information with IT systems at a process level is difficult. Getting these systems to work together to maximize business efficiency is more challenging. IoT networking technology enables large quantities of information to be readily available – these high-speed data transport technologies are the true enabler in IT/OT convergence. Critical industries like utilities need high-speed connectivity, but also want to maintain security standards and protocols. With high data capacity OT networks, the overhead of Internet and security protocols is no longer critical to network latency and SCADA applications for communications. OT/IT networks now use the same Network and Transport layers, clearing one of the fundamental barriers to convergence.

  • Tracks: 
In 2009, Apple introduced iPhone OS 3.0 and along with it, the opportunity for third parties to connect custom hardware, both wired and wireless, to the Cloud. Companies began introducing accessories that used a mobile device as a sort of gateway or hub. Now, in 2016, there are many choices for connecting the same wired and wireless accessories directly to the Cloud. It’s true in 2016 as it was in 2009 - adding a third player into the scene of the sensor-gateway-Cloud architecture continues to be a challenge for engineers and manufacturers. In this session, we’ll explore modern examples of sensor-to-Cloud connectivity, considerations for deploying these types of sensors into the field, and pro’s and con’s to various architecture choices.
