  • 10:15-10:45am RTOS Fundamentals Using FreeRTOS Jacob Beningo
Real-time Operating Systems (RTOS) are becoming a core component in every embedded system. This session will cover what an RTOS is and why a developer should use one. Attendees will walk away withan understanding on how to create tasks and synchronize them using semaphores, mutexes, message queues and event flags.
  • 11:00-11:30am Embedded Machine Learning Accelerating Innovation for the IoT Long-Tail Nicolas Sauvage
This session will review how best Embedded Machine Learning with Sensing Fusion can enable the upcoming innovative use-cases from the highly fragmented IoT single-digit developers long-tail.
  • 11:45am-12:15pm Skunkworks Engineering: Rapid Prototyping Towards the Modular Smartphone, Project Ara Andrew Meyer - LeafLabs
LeafLabs joined Project Ara before it was clear what exactly a modular smartphone should be or even could be. LeafLabs helped to reimagine the digital architecture of the smartphone as a network of communicating modules. In 7 months, a working form-factor prototype was built using 7 FPGAs. This session will present some of the key early challenges behind Project Ara and argue that rapid, iterative prototyping is key to success on skunkworks projects.
  • 12:30-1:00pm Ultra-Fast, Highly Sensitive Printed Moisture Sensors for High-Speed Sensing Applications Vijaya Kayastha - Brewer Science
An ultra-fast, printed moisture sensor, with high moisture sensitivity, will be presented. These carbon-based, resistive-type sensors have almost instantaneous response to humidity fluctuation, with a response time ofless than 10 milliseconds. They are able to detect moisture at a trace level of < 100 ppm, can operate atultra-low power (<30 pW), have a flexible form factor, can be printed on any surface, and can be integrated with many existing devices.
  • 1:15-1:45pm IoT Sensors Needs New Components - Why Existing Memory Device Architectures Aren’t Good Enough Bård M. Pedersen
Previously, memory specifications accommodated the needs of desktop PCs. Energy consumption wasnot an issue with outlet power. Mobile computing made battery life essential, new semiconductors provided groundbreaking energy efficiency. The IoT represents another revolution of embedded systemswith reduced energy consumption mandatory. Semiconductor memories are trailing other system components. This session examines the requirements for efficient IoT memory, tracks technological progress and looks at trade-offs between existing and new memory architectures.
  • 2:00-2:30pm The Transformative Power of Cellular IoT for Embedded Sensor Applications Quinn Jones - Digi International

The release of the new 3GPP standards for LTE-M/Cat-M1 and NB-IoT, are already having a transformative effect on market applications for embedded sensors that will make getting to market easier, more reliable, secure, and cost effective than ever before; changing the game for the way we will interact with devices.  This discussion will help developers understand the new tools and capabilities with this uniquely enabling technology that is helping OEMs unleash innovation.

  • 3:30-4:00pm Jump-Start Your Next IoT Design with the SensorTile Francesco Doddo
This session will show you how to simplify the integration of sensors, low-energy Bluetooth Smart connectivity, a low-power microcontroller and sensor fusion libraries into your next IoT design using the SensorTile development kit.
