Accelerating innovation, productivity, and value with IoT

Monday Oct 24 at 9:45-10:15am

Keynote description: 
2015 was the year that the IoT gained legitimacy; 2016 is the year it goes mainstream. Over the last year, enterprises shook off a "start small, think big" mind-set around IoT, and are now building it into their future strategies and business models. Today’s IoT platforms and partnerships need to address head on the problems of complexity and fragmentation that up until now have been two of the biggest barriers to IoT innovation.

Come with us on the journey of what is shaping how development process is simplified and in turn allows enterprise users to drive the creation of new product and service categories as a foundation for better experiences for consumers, businesses and citizens.

Proportional security to meet the business needs of IoT

Proportional security to meet the business needs of IoT

Monday Oct 24 at 1:30-1:55pm

Session description: 
This talk will consider how IoT security investment choices can be adjusted and justified for each IoT application. Here we show how security is not a one-size-fits all, black and white, choice but a continuum of security technology choices which should be motivated by business needs rather than abstract fear and paranoia. We illustrate this with some example use cases and show how the mbed IoT Device Platform provides a security framework in which these choices can be made.

Developing IoT devices with mbed OS 5

Developing IoT devices with mbed OS 5

Monday Oct 24 at 2:00-2:25pm

Session description: 
For embedded developers the 'Internet of Things' might very well be just a buzzword invented by marketing. We've been building embedded devices with a radio for years, how is this different? Two words: scale and security. If we want to deploy millions of devices, the requirements for our firmware are different than when we just deploy a hundred. Patching devices gets a lot more expensive, and squeezing every last bit of power out of a battery will incur a significant cost saving. And as your product increases with popularity by customers, your product will then become a more interesting target to attack.

So why build everything yourself? ARM mbed OS 5 is an application middleware that bundles an RTOS, communication libraries, a scheduler, and advanced security features - including uVisor - that help you build IoT devices faster and more secure. In this session we'll show you how to get up and running with mbed OS 5, so you can just focus on writing the actual application firmware.


Presenter:
Jan Jongboom, Developer Evangelist, ARM. Jan is an embedded engineer and is always looking for ways to connect more devices to the internet. He is regularly contributing to the mbed project, by writing new libraries, thinking about better APIs, or spamming feedback back to the core development team. He takes a particular keen interest in wireless connectivity methods, having built Bluetooth and LoRa devices in a previous life.

Mac Lobdell, Applications engineer, ARM. Mac is focused on helping partners bring their technology, products, and services to the mbed ecosystem. He has broad experience with embedded systems software with focus areas including real time operating systems, power management, security, and network connectivity software. He is on a mission to make embedded systems development more efficient, collaborative, connected, secure, and fun.

Overview of mbed Device Connector & connecting to the application cloud

Overview of mbed Device Connector & connecting to the application cloud

Monday Oct 24 at 2:30-2:55pm

Session description: 
Often when people think about the Internet of Things, they think about physical devices. But the real value of IoT lays at the application layer, where the data from these devices is gathered, analyzed and used to make business decisions. But how do you get your data in the application cloud of your choice if you have hundreds of thousands devices connected over many communication protocols?

In this session we'll show how you can use mbed Device Connector for your device communication - including device identity, device management, and providing a data pipe - regardless of the device's radio. We'll also show you how you can relay your data stream to any application cloud - whether its IBM Watson IoT, AWS IoT, Azure, or your own custom application.

Build a smart lighting device

Monday Oct 24 at 4:00-5:25pm

Session description: 
Tired of sitting in a room listening to people all day? Let's get our hands dirty! In this session we'll incorporate all parts of the mbed IoT Device Platform to build some connected lights. We'll grab an mbed Enabled development board, a motion sensor, a radio and a light source and write some firmware to talk to mbed Device Connector. When we have the device side ready we'll build an app to retrieve events from the device, and send data back to the device.

This hands-on session will prepare you for building real-life products on top of the mbed IoT Device Platform, drawing upon lessons we learned while building commercial lighting fixtures - including tips on how to provide local fallbacks in case your internet goes down.

Location on Internet of Things

Location on Internet of Things

Monday Oct 24 at 4:00-4:25pm

Session description: 
The rapid growth of IoT sensors poses a substantial logistics problem in keeping track of these devices. While many devices may be stationary, determining a device’s location can be challenging given that one standard location technology cannot be applied ubiquitously. Delivering a robust indoor/outdoor location solution requires that the next generation of locations services be lightweight with respect to memory, bandwidth and power efficient, and distributable to support both cloud and local area network topologies common in IoT infrastructures. This presentation is an overview of Comtech’s distributed hybrid-location technology being developed for ARM Linux and mbed OS devices targeted for the specific needs of IoT.


Presenter:

More connected devices means more opportunities for attacks, and we're all exposed to news stories talking about the hacking of 'things'. The silver lining is that we are moving from people talking about how important security is, to people realizing that they must start securing their systems. Now is the time to 'do'. We'll talk about the concept of a trusted sensor, security tools available for building them, and walk through a practical demonstration of a trusted sensor node relaying its data to a cloud-based system.
