Dutch, Belgian companies provide indispensable infrastructure to run global IoT – Interview with Peter Siemkens, DSP Valley

Dutch, Belgian companies provide indispensable infrastructure to run global IoT – Interview with Peter Siemkens, DSP Valley. Peter Siemkens is a speaker at the Internet of Things Event 2017, which will take place on June 08, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is still often called a hype or a buzzword. If connecting devices to the web and making them smart data collectors is such a promising technology, then why don’t we see more IoT solutions in our daily life? But here we’re wrong, says Peter Simkens. The IoT revolution is already well under way, although we may not notice it.

Simkens is managing director of DSP Valley, a Belgian-Dutch cluster organization focused on building a networking platform where companies interested in IoT solutions can find meaningful partnerships. On June 8th he will give a talk during the 7th annual Internet-of-Things event at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, highlighting how companies can find the right tools, knowledge and competence for their IoT strategy.

So how are we wrong about not seeing the IoT?
“Because many solutions that are already genuine IoT don’t market themselves as such. Just look at the medical sector. There are so many applications to monitor body functions, like wearables. A wearable is nothing but a sensor that sends its data to smartphone and the internet, where you can monitor it. That’s pure Internet of Things. Even a sports watch that sends your heart rate details is an IoT solution. So IoT is not only about smart refrigerators, it’s also about human data.” Continue reading “Dutch, Belgian companies provide indispensable infrastructure to run global IoT – Interview with Peter Siemkens, DSP Valley”

Smart Systems – the Internet of Things ecosystem – Workshop powered by DSP Valley at IoT Event 2017

Smart Systems – the Internet of Things ecosystem – Workshop powered by DSP Valley at IoT Event 2017which takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Today, we are entering the era of the ‘connected world.’  By 2020, over 25 billion of devices will be interconnected (wirelessly), the so-called Internet of Things. That opens up a vast range of opportunities for society, labour, industry, house-hold, health care, transportation, etc. We certainly have the potential and tools and technology to realise this change. But if you don’t want to be left behind, now is the time to take action to make it happen! Collaboration is key to proceed effectively and efficiently.  That’s exactly the ambition of the ‘Smart Systems’ project.

The “Smart Systems” project, funded by OP Zuid and Stimulus, focuses on an integrative approach, engaging all relevant stakeholders in the Internet of Things ecosystem, to speed up development and implementation of solutions for health care and smart industries and eventually aiming at enforcing the competitiveness of individual companies in a global market. Together with companies, knowledge institutes and network organisations and guided by DSP Valley, the project is supported by hands-on, in-practice demonstration projects complementing the technological fingerprint of the ecosystem. A new Digital Experience lab, together with tech-multinational Philips Innovation Services Greenhouse enables experimenting, demonstrating, validating and in the end volume manufacturing: faster, better and cheaper!

How to make an IoT solution come true? – Presented by Peter Simkens, DSP Valley

“How to make an IoT solution come true?” – Presented by Peter Simkens, DSP Valley at the Internet of Things Eventwhich 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.

About Peter Simkens
Dr. Peter Simkens holds a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering (1984) and a PhD (1990), both obtained from KULeuven. During more than 10 years, Peter Simkens was involved in development projects for the European Space Agency, including the development of training and simulation facilities for European astronauts, and the development of real-time IT-systems for space applications.
