Fibre Optic Sensing as a Base of Asset Management – Presented by C. Cordova, Yokogawa

Fibre Optic Sensing as a Base of Asset Management – Presented by Cordova Cordova, Yokogawa, at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, which will take place on November 8, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Fibre optic sensing solutions is one of the latest sensor technologies which is used not only in the automation and process industry but also infrastructure from civil, transport, and power. Its multiple sensing points capability in one single fibre optic—which is equal to multiple sensors—offer a cost effective solution in monitoring large equipment and wide area such as industrial plant, civil infrastructure, and environment. With the data available digitally, integration with any asset management system is achievable easily. Continue reading “Fibre Optic Sensing as a Base of Asset Management – Presented by C.

Preserving critical infrastructures using optical fiber – Presented by Alejandro Dominguez-Lopez, InPhoTech

Preserving critical infrastructures using optical fiber – Presented by Alejandro Dominguez-Lopez, InPhoTech, at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, which will take place on November 8, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Did you know 90 % of today’s communications go through optical fiber? Did you also know the majority of infrastructures, such as railways, offshore farms or dams, feature optical fiber cables along them? And what if I tell you that we could actually “listen” to the structure’s “heart beating” through the optical fiber itself? By measuring the properties of the light traveling through the optical fiber we can turn a single optical cable into several thousand thermometers or microphones placed along tens of kilometers of distance, and, that way, we can accurately address the structure’s current status.

Smart Moves for Smart Maintenance – Presented by Henk Akkermans, World Class Maintenance

Smart Moves for Smart Maintenance – Presented by Henk Akkermans, Director World Class Maintenance/ Professor Tilburg University, at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, which will take place on November 8, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

World Class Maintenance conducted a major research project in 2016 on the maintenance innovation priorities of Dutch industries. Some 50 experts from various industries and knowledge institutes gave their assessments on maintenance-related innovations for the coming years. Working with Smart Sensors came out at #2 in the resulting Top-10. Remarkably, most innovations in the top-10 are process oriented, rather than product and/or technology orientated. All technological innovations were data-driven, and seen as a condition for other innovations to succeed.

We already live in the ‘Matrix’ – Interview with Mary-Ann Schreurs, Vice-Mayor of Eindhoven

We already live in the ‘Matrix’ – Interview with Mary-Ann Schreurs, Vice-Mayor of Eindhoven

Mary-Ann Schreurs, Vice-Mayor, city of Eindhoven will open the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference 2017, on November 08, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands. She has a very clear and outspoken vision on the developments and expectations of the people of her city and region. “We must go from a data-driven economy to a innovative design for life economy,” says Schreurs.

Mary-Ann Schreurs believes in design as an important engine for our economy and being just the right tool for defying big challenges of the city. As the first Dutch vice-mayor of design she therefore introduced design in local innovation policy. Her goal is to improve citizen’s lives by using the methodology of design thinking in co-creation with the citizens itself and other stakeholders in the city. Before she became council member and vice-mayor in Eindhoven, she was co-initiator of (European) innovation projects linked to design.

“Since the end of the second World War Two we have been reduced to numbers instead of human beings,“ starts Schreurs. “Everything has been made secondary to the system, and everybody had to live accordingly to that vision. If you buy a car, you, the human, only have to press the right knobs to get what you want. The car will drive it self (editorial: which it does already for 25 years) we are no more than an extended arm of the IT nowadays. That is why we are already living in the ‘Matrix’.” Continue reading “We already live in the ‘Matrix’ – Interview with Mary-Ann Schreurs, Vice-Mayor of Eindhoven”
