Photonics is key technology for smart factories
Sensor networks for smart industry (industry 4.0 / industrie 4.0) and smart infrastructure are getting more and more essential. Real time information from ‘the real world’ to support decision making and control of vital processes will be an integral part of business processes.

Photonics provides smart factories with optical fibres for high-speed, reliable data communication, fibre lasers for production and sensors for intelligent feedback. One of the most promising developments is the ‘smart laser’, that understand what material it processes, how the process develops and when it is finished. Smart lasers are highly flexible and can adapt to changes in the material, such as shape, reflectivity, thickness and orientation.

The ISN Conference consists of several workshops where endusers and suppliers will meet and discuss what is needed for Smart Industry and how photonics can support this.

Photonics is a key enabler of the Internet of Things
Without photonics, the interconnectedness of physical devices and their ability to share and analyze information about their surroundings would not be possible.

For its implementation the Internet of Things relies heavily on sensor technology. Sensors need to be small, robust and energy efficient to be embedded in machines, appliances, buildings and infrastructure and succesfully collect data over large periods of time.

Fibre optic sensors – manufactured using photonics technology – are not only more sensitive than existing electromagnetic sensors, but also faster operating, better able to withstand harsh conditions and immune to electromagnetic interference.

Some of the most significant photonics IoT applications are: communications, transportation, environmental monitoring, smart homes, factories, and gadgets.

The IoT event consists of several workshops where endusers and suppliers will meet and discuss what is needed for Internet of Things and how photonics can support this.

Augmented reality beyond the wow-factor – Presented by John Schavemaker, twnkls | augmented reality

Augmented reality beyond the wow-factor – Presented by John Schavemaker, twnkls | augmented reality

In his keynote John will show multiple applications with AR that companies today have in place that increase process efficiency, convince the end customer and are exceeding by far the status of “gimmick”.

For example: how did Otolift manage to use Augmented Reality and reduce its entire process from sale to installation from 38 days to 48 hours?

Exploring the Digital Twin concept for use in civil infrastructure – Presented by Joep Paulissen, TNO

Exploring the Digital Twin concept for use in civil infrastructure – Presented by Joep Paulissen, TNO, at Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, on January 18, 2019, at Rotterdam AHOY, The Netherlands.

In 2018 the TNO Unit Building, Infrastructure and Maritime initiated research activities into the use of the Digital Twin concept for civil infrastructure. With the aim of ‘Learning by Doing’ we selected a relevant case study within our context of assessing the reliability of bridge structures.

By connecting TNO knowledge on relevant IT techniques with our domain knowledge on steel bridges we created first relatively simple digital twin of a steel bridge deck susceptible to fatigue cracking.

FIWARE, The Open Source Platform for our Smart Digital Future – Presented by Valentijn de Leeuw, 3IF

FIWARE, The Open Source Platform for our Smart Digital Future – Presented by Valentijn de Leeuw, Vice President ARC Advisory Group, Industrial Expert at 3IF.be, Belgium, at Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, on January 18, 2019, at Rotterdam AHOY, The Netherlands.

Digitalization starts with digital representation of physical assets (buildings, factories, transport means, utilities, etc.) and the environment (weather, traffic, etc.) Activities in different sectors need to exchange information about those assets in a meaningful way. This requires information model or data model, which specifies with information is stored where, what its meaning and content is.
