Katarzyna Ławniczuk, JePPIX, Will Be Keynote Speaker at Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference. She will speak about “Application Specific Photonic Integrated Circuits”

Photonic integrated circuits offer radical miniaturization, cost reduction and performance enhancement in sectors ranging from fiber optical communications and antenna systems through to metrology and sensing. The implementation of a pioneering generic technology in photonics now allows shared development costs across many sectors and accelerates the design cycle. The use of fewer photonic chips inherently simplifies assembly. In integrated form, photonic chips become compatible with MEMS, integrated electronics and a range of micro-optical systems, creating a roadmap for further smart systems integration.

Smart going-on: When Social Innovation meets the IoT

The Internet of Things

When we talk about the Internet of Things (IoT), we tend to think of connected homes and smart devices making our lives easier and more efficient through technology. However when the IoT is applied to manufacturing, the potential for improvements are immense. By connecting multiple machines, a manufacturer can create an intelligent network reducing the need for intervention by operators. This transformation in manufacturing, through the application of IoT sensors, system logic and big data, is known as Industry 4.0 and has even been dubbed ‘the fourth industrial revolution’, says Klaus Dieter Rennert of Hitachi.

“Towards a Sensing Stadium”, Presented by Dimitri Hehanussa, TNO

“Towards a Sensing Stadium”, Presented by Dimitri Hehanussa, TNO

Almost twenty years ago the Amsterdam ArenA was the first multifunctional stadium in the world. It played a major role in the economic and societal development of Amsterdam South East. Now it reached a major point in its existence. The stadium will be rebuild and transformed into a next generation stadium.

The Amsterdam ArenA Innovation Center has been opened on June 6th 2015. The Innovation Center includes a close collaboration between the strategic partners: Amsterdam ArenA, KPN, TNO, KPMG, Huawei, Municipality of Amsterdam and Microsoft.

Cybersecurity in Smart Buildings – Vulnerabilities, Strategic Messages for the Industry

Background: Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities in Smart Buildings

Today’s smart buildings are increasingly enabled by Internet of Things (IoT) and made functional by the ongoing convergence of operational technology (OT) systems and information technology (IT) systems in buildings. A host of new elements such as the cloud, remote access, data sharing and analytics, and connected and shared networks has fundamentally changed how built environments are being used and operated. Continue reading “Cybersecurity in Smart Buildings – Vulnerabilities, Strategic Messages for the Industry”

Jan Burgmeijer, TNO, Presents: “Smart Data Factory for Logistics”

Jan Burgmeijer, TNO, Presents: “Smart Data Factory for Logistics”

Logistic innovations like Cross Chain Collaboration, Synchromodality and Smart Trade Compliancy & Border Management can only be successful if business data from supply chain partners and sensor data of the infrastructure are combined. Trust, privacy and security are important issues to get access to these data.

TNO is working with partners from the logistics sector and some IT-partners on finding the most interested use cases and see how we can make business cases out of these. To convince the sector partners a real live demo of the logistic innovation is necessary. TNO has developed a data connectivity platform to enable the demonstration of the use cases and to support small pilots. A number of use cases and demo results will be presented. Future plans are presented. Continue reading “Jan Burgmeijer, TNO, Presents: “Smart Data Factory for Logistics””

Tim de Wolf, Koning & Hartman, Presents: ‘From IoT for consumers, to Smart Industry for industrial companies. Smart made Simple’

Internet of Things. We can all imagine the intelligent chain of events: You walk out of the office at the end of the day, your phone registers the time and concludes that you are going home. The heater or air condition in your car was initiated 15 minutes ago and with your estimated time of arrival given the traffic, your house will be heated upon arrival and the bathtub will be filled. Everything automated. For us as consumers the added benefit of IoT is clear and apparent. The question is, how does it influence innovation for businesses? Koning & Hartman, in the B2B Dutch Industry, devised with its partners a plan to adopt Smart Industry. Simple and concrete steps an industrial company can take today, for the Smart Industry of the future.

Goal of the presentation: provide an inspiring and clear view on defining Smart Industry, and presenting steps to achieve it. Continue reading “Tim de Wolf, Koning & Hartman, Presents: ‘From IoT for consumers, to Smart Industry for industrial companies. Smart made Simple’”
