Internet of Things Breakout Session
Hear from experts in the field of connected device hardware and software on current and future trends to connect the internet to everything.
Makers in IoT: Lowering the Barrier to Entry with Ryo Koyama. The barrier to entry for Makers aspiring to create the next wave of connected products is still too high. Commercial IoT products require mastery of multiple disciplines including embedded software, cloud technologies, security, hardware design for manufacturing, and multi-platform mobile Apps to name just a few. The investment required to master every discipline is beyond the reach of all but a few well-funded start-ups and companies with substantial resources. This presentation will show how Makers are leveraging open software and hardware platforms like Intel Edison and Raspberry Pi to level the playing field.
Controlling your Photon with If This Then That (IFTTT) with Simon Monk. The Photon is a low-cost microcontroller board that includes WiFi hardware, allowing Makers to create hardware projects with an Internet presence. The Photon includes integration with the popular If This Then That (IFTTT) web service that allows anyone to link various software services both with each other and with hardware using the Photon.
In this presentation, Dr. Simon Monk will demonstrate how you can easily set-up a Photon to ring a bell by sending an email to the IFTTT service.
Building the Internet of Things – From Development Dilemmas to Security Concerns with Zach Shelby. Building an Internet of Things (IoT) device comes with a whole new set hurtles and complexity. Developers struggle with the same fundamental problems again and again. Not to mention the imminent threat of hackers and security concerns. This presentation will discuss how the ARM mbed IoT Device Platform can provide a foundation for developers to build on and allow them to focus on their product and differentiation. Find out how mbed is bringing web paradigm to devices and facilitating co-development of applications and firmware.
The Collision of the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet with Alasdair Allan. The Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet are not the same. While the Industrial Internet has its roots in the SCADA systems of the early sixties, the Internet of Things has its roots in the web architectures of the dotcom boom. They don’t share the same history, architectures, technologies or security models. However increasingly we will see smart things make their way into the workplace. Soon employees will not only bring their own device, they’ll be bringing their own Internet (of Things), and that’s going to cause problems.
