Connected Home and Building Conference (Room - Forum 17)
Let There Be Light in Industry
For most industrial settings, connecting sensors and equipment to the facility network is difficult and tedious; particularly in retrofit applications, where installing new wiring is troublesome, if not impossible. On the other hand, data shows that building owners who have upgraded their lighting infrastructure to wireless lighting controls are easily able to take advantage of additional IIoT opportunities and use the wireless lighting system as the backbone for enabling other IIoT technology applications.

Autos and Autonomy: Keeping the Right Eyes on the Road
Parallel Parking, Auto Braking, and Collision detection. All of these are precursors to the autonomous vehicle predicted in the future. What is the implication for driver adoption of new technologies? This session drills down on the question - are we ready to let go of the wheel?

Analytics 101: Avoiding GIGO and Gaining Insight
Our recent study suggests that only a quarter of the Enterprises trust the Big Data they are getting from IoT Analytics. Where does this concern come from? Is it that the data is immaterial to processes, or is it that we have value - laden theory as to what the data provides? This panel takes a close look at how to ensure your data is relevant, valuable and trusted.
IoT Developer Conference (Room - Forum 15)
“Snappy” IoT Application Development and Delivery with Ubuntu Core
The Ubuntu operating system is widely understood and deployed in desktop, server, and cloud environments, with over 40 million users and counting. Its open source foundation, vast community support, and extensive documentation make it an ideal candidate as an IoT OS, but there is one problem: The Ubuntu distribution, with all its bells and whistles, is too heavy to run on resource-constrained Internet of Things gateways and edge devices. That is, until now.
Enterprise IoT Track (Room - Forum 19)
Industry 4.0: IoT and Manufacturing
One of the key points for the Industry 4.0 philosophy: the unification of the factory floor with the decision-making enterprise-based systems. This 4.0 philosophy focuses on digitizing production processes, enhancing efficiency, reducing costs, increasing safety and security and, last but not least, innovating with smarter products and services. The industrial production no longer simply manufactures the product; the manufacturing process becomes fully integrated, automated and optimized leading to greater efficiencies, changed work flows and enhanced communications between humans and machines.
IoT Smart, Connected & Secure (Room - Forum 22)
Cold Chain and the Food Safety Management Act
Locus Traxx Worldwide
The Food Safety Modernization Act is changing the way that food processors manage the handling of food from farm to fork. This panel discusses the changes in food management and how IoT systems are going to impact and report on food safety.
