“How to make an IoT solution come true?” – Presented by Peter Simkens, DSP Valley at the Internet of Things Event, which takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
In order to make an IoT solution come true, a lot of diﬀerent competencies and technologies are needed. From a technology point of view, IoT solutions become possible thanks to Moore’s law for semiconductor technology, bringing miniaturisation, low cost volume production, low energy consumption and compute performance. From a value chain point of view, the semiconductor technology needs to be applied tot he embedded sensor nodes, and to be combined with other disciplines including wireless broadcasting, app development, smart data analysis and cloud technologies. This introductory presentation will highlight some technology evolutions and trends, as well as the need for partnering in an ecosystem context.
