Eclipse IoT for Industry 4.0
  • Vito De Gaetano - Industrial IoT architect, Bosch

An industrial environment is a perfect example of variety of data in terms of structure, volume, frequency, format, sources. Collecting data from a manufacturing area in an efficient way means to have the capability to communicate with “things”, understand the content, process locally when time critical and stream the data to a storage where enterprise IT applications can transform data into information and consume it for prediction, analysis and fast decision taking.

In this talk we will present a solution deployed in a manufacturing environment using an end-to-end open source IoT integration framework (based on Eclipse IoT technologies and other open source projects), and taking into account the typical industrial constraints for protection and security. We will put a particular focus on how this has allowed us to interface with an existing IT landscape of corporate tools.

  • Ben Posthuma - Senior Solutions Engineer, Kymeta Corp.
  • Joseph Sheppard - Co-Founder, Focused Mission Inc.
  • Dean Skidmore - Principal Consultant, IoT+LTE Consulting Group, NPSTC, Vice Chair, PS IoT Workgroup

To assure that the life-saving part of IoLST is always available, your connectivity needs to be always on, always available. As we move from private, secured networks to operating over the commercially available – and very congested – Internet, the cost of dropping a call or connection is raised exponentially when dealing with life threatening situations. How do we assure that our networks and devices are always connected?

Pushing IoT Analytics to the Edge
  • David Simmons - Senior Developer Evangelist, InFlux Data

As IoT Architectures mature and evolve the ability to both collect and analyze sensor data has become a mission critical. But forwarding all data to a central repository -- be it on-premise or cloud-based -- becomes more and more impractical as the number of sensors and the amount of data grow. Pushing data collection and analysis further to the edge is becoming a requirement for IoT deployments.

With most data platforms, it simply isn't practical, or even possible, to push collection AND analytics to the edge. In this talk I'll show how I've done exactly this with a combination of open source hardware -- Pine64 -- and open source software -- InfluxDB -- to build a practical, efficient and scalable data collection and analysis gateway device for IoT deployments.
