Mbed Connect USA 2018

Learn from the world's leading IoT developers

  Oct. 16, 2018   11:30:00

Mbed Connect has been Arm TechCon's IoT developer day since 2016. This is a developer-focused event, created and instructed by developers for developers. Join us to hone your skills with the assistance of our experts with a full day track of keynotes and hands-on workshops.

Who Should Attend?

Attending the developer event puts you a step ahead of your peers providing you the ability to deliver key insights about Mbed as well as an array of other IoT devices, highlighting key industry trends and learnings. This program allows you to immerse with leading IoT innovators and participate in experiences ranging from keynotes by technical founders to smaller, hands-on forums.

Agenda: IoT Expert Speakers & Hands-on Workshops

The day will consist of a full day track of IoT developer talks with the added option of joining one of the developer tabletop workshops occurring in the afternoon. The tabletop workshop will be small group hands-on workshops that will run for approximately 1 hour at a time. See below for more detail on the available workshops. Note: Space is limited at the tabletop workshops.

Afternoon Hands-on Workshops

Hands-on Workshop Leader Description
Indoor positioning Comtech Determining the position of a device through GPS is great but it is not always an option. Modules can be expensive, power hungry, and only works outdoors. This workshop introduces alternative positioning methods and gives a practical introduction to indoor positioning through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy.
Bluetooth Low Energy Austin Blackstone,
It's estimated that in 2018 around 1 billion Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices will ship. That's an unbelievable number! Interested in being part of this massive market and want to learn how to develop BLE devices, join us at this workshop. This workshop will cover the basics of BLE and how to use Mbed OS to develop BLE applications.
Introduction to LTE Cat-M1 Avnet Cellular connectivity works almost everywhere and has great range, but is also power hungry and is not always a good fit for IoT devices. Not anymore, LTE Cat-M1 is an optimized version of LTE specifically for IoT devices, offering great range, improved power consumption, and a data-rate much higher than competing IoT networks. This workshops lets you build your first LTE Cat-M1 device.
Introduction to Data Science Takuya Kitazawa,
Treasure Data
Gathering vasts amount of data is only part of what the Internet of Things is. How do you do something useful with all that data? This workshop introduces you to data acquisition, visualization, and running machine learning models on big data sets.
Using LoRaWAN with The Things Network Johan Stokking,
The Things Network
LoRaWAN is a networking technology that combines kilometers of range with very low power consumption, which is a perfect fit for IoT devices. And because it's operating in the unlicensed spectrum everyone can set up a network. This workshop introduces you to the worldwide community driven by The Things Network, and shows how to build and connect LoRaWAN devices.
Introduction to the Mbed simulator Jan Jongboom,
The feedback loop when developing IoT devices is slow. It requires compilation, flashing, and getting the device back into the state that you were testing. In addition, it always requires hardware, which is not always practical. Wouldn't it be great if you could test the software on a computer first? This workshop introduces you to the experimental online Mbed simulator and shows how to dramatically shorten your feedback loop.
Getting started with ARMv8-M on the Nuvoton M2351 Robert Ling,
Traditionally, microcontrollers have a flat address space and no process isolation; that has changed. The new ARMv8-M architecture brings Arm TrustZone to Arm Cortex-M MCUs, allowing multiple security domains to run on the same processor. This workshop introduces you to the new security features in ARMv8-M, and gives you hands-on experience with the Nuvoton M2351, the first development board to implement these new features.
