10:15 - 10:40 "Connected Body - Connected Life"
  • Megatrends Wearable Technologies & IoT
  • Connected body interacting with a smart environment
10:40 Break
11:15 - 11:40 "Central Monitoring and Troubleshooting of IoT Networks - Meeting the SLA Challenge"
Information from the IoT connected devices is just 'expected' to be available and up-to-date.
But actually for the data to get to the cloud it should be transferred from different networks, using multiple/still-evolving protocols and implemented by a variety of vendors - interoperability in the lab can not address all issues.
In light of these constraints, some of the challenges to address include:
  • Having an out of band monitoring and troubleshooting path that is transparent to protocol changes and vendor implementation
  • Analyzing remote M2M wireless and wire-line networks via non-intrusive probes
  • Automatic preemptive fault identification
  • Independent data logging - for debugging and audit purposes
  • Providing tools for service providers - helping to meet SLA
  • Supporting of both low level call center needs as well as sophisticated, professional, back-office personnel
11:40 - 12:05 "Real-time Communication in Wireless Sensor Networks for Satellite and Spacecraft Applications"
• Satellites and spacecrafts are currently relying on dedicated cabled communication means for the ground tests as well as in-flight control applications, for which the rising cabling complexity of the ever-increasing number of sensors becomes unmanageable. The resulting constraints in terms of timeliness and throughput cannot not be met by current wireless standards.
• However, the advances in WSN technologies (both at the physical layer and the protocol levels) allows for the development of dedicated wireless networks based on commercial off-the-shelf components. CSEM has been addressing such bespoke systems for more than 10 years, and has developed an unrivalled expertise in WSN deployments for critical applications.
• The presentation will present the main requirements for intra spacecraft communications. Given the highly metallic structures, IEEE 802.15.4a IR-UWB has been selected. However, the IEEE 802.15.4 medium access control does not meet the needed predictability and performances. The presentation will show the options that were selected to meet the requirements. The talk will show how the chosen solutions may be applied to similar problems in transportation and industrial applications.
