Track 1: Market Landscape: Cypress C
Track 2: Technical Challenges: Cypress B
Our home networks are filled with smart IoT devices and home automation products, but their security lags behind. In this talk we'll break a few myths on home network security, show how easy it is to bypass that NAT and demonstrate recent attacks on IoT devices
Interoperability is key for the success of the Smart Home. However, the technology stack required to deliver these applications is still largely proprietary. This hinders mainstream adoption and ultimately innovation. While some vendors pursue a traditional captive consumer lock-in strategy, many others increasingly embrace the open source model where companies don't compete on the basics but rather collaborate at the development of open standards. In this presentation Cesare Garlati, Chief Technology Strategist at prpl Foundation, will share some key insights on the prplWRT initiative where global operators have joined forces with their ecosystems to develop open source technology stacks open for all for the benefit of the smart society of the future.
The Smart Home market is quite broad, so the selection of a wireless technology is highly influenced by the requirements of the specific solution. There are no “one-size fits all” technologies when it comes to wireless. Some key considerations include:
Track 3: The Future of Home Robotics: Cypress B
Connectivity of devices in the home is pervasive and the average number of connected devices in the home is increasing. Many traditional devices are now connected and “smart”, including lights, speakers, thermostats, and robot vacuums. While there are myriad devices that make up today’s connected home, the consumer benefits of having such devices are primarily limited to individual device functions and narrow features. In order for homes to go from connected to smart, these devices must be automatically orchestrated to provide seamless home-wide experiences. This automation requires physical context about the space in which the devices are operating to be usable and personalized to an individual’s home. This presentation will discuss how home robots in millions of homes today are already mapping homes and are ideally suited to provide such physical context required to address these challenges in enabling the smart home.
