EM2: Getting Started with an RTOS on the Raspberry Pi
There's a lot of dogma and disinformation around using an RTOS. When, if at all, is one needed? Aren't they complex, greedy, expensive? How or where do I start? This session will introduce the key concepts behind a RTOS, typical features, development tools and system requirements. eCosPro on Raspberry Pi will be used as a rapid prototyping platform to illustrate determinism, drivers and more, before migrating in moments to a highly constrained Cortex-M. Glorified super-loop be gone!

EM3: RTOS Design Techniques for Sensor Based Systems

Embedded Systems are becoming more complex and requiring more advanced design techniques in order to maintain the systems real-time performance. Employing an RTOS is a good step towards managing real-time complexity but there are many pitfalls that developers can encounter such as priority inversions and deadline. In this session, attendees will learn not only about RTOS fundamentals but how to avoid common pitfalls using RTOS synchronization tools, how to debug an RTOS based system and how to properly manage memory.

EM4: Secure Network Infrastructure for Industrial IoT

This session will focus on core network infrastructure issues related to securely transporting data from millions of Industrial sensors in a slew of verticals to applications residing in public/private/Hybrid clouds. Understand the various security issues from protecting the Industrial asset to securing the data transport to isolation of sensor sub-system to minimize hack proliferation. Explore the provisioning and management issues as scale, OoS/WAN optimization, and edge analytics.

EM5: Is Your Data Acquisition System Ready for Big Analog Data?

With the proliferation of sensing and networking technologies, adding measurements to systems has never been easier and more cost-effective. This opportunity to uncover new insights comes at the risk of spending more time searching for and analyzing multiple data sets. Learn how proper metadata documentation, custom triggering, and the right analysis technique will help you save only the data needed to make informed decisions. This presentation will also explore lessons learned from the Jaguar Land Rover R&D Powertrain test team which generated and analyzed over 500 GB of data per day from more than 200 dataloggers.

EM6: ARMv8-M TrustZone Security for Cortex-M Processors

Security has become an important issue for many microprocessor systems especially those IoT platforms connected to the Internet. Sensors need to be connected to a microprocessor and there must be security schemes present to prevent hacking and ultimate loss of system control. ARM Cortex-M processors are widely used in such systems.  With ARMv8-M architecture, TrustZone hardware is added to provide a trusted system to be implemented.  This includes hardware security such as sensors, GPIO and wireless.

EM7: IoT Industrial Protocols

Internet of Things (IoT), according to IEEE, is a self-configuring and adaptive system consisting of networks of sensors and smart objects whose purpose is to interconnect “all” things, including every day and industrial objects, in such a way as to make them intelligent, programmable and more capable of interacting with humans.

Industry experts indicate that the market of billions of IoT devices cannot be materialized without achieving interoperability, security and the capability to remotely control and update IoT constrained devices. In this session, you will learn how a device management protocol called Lightweight M2M achieves these three objectives.

LightweightM2M (LwM2M) has been developed by Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) which is the leading industry forum for developing market driven, interoperable mobile service enablers.

In this session, you will learn how the OMA LwM2M device management protocol works and how it reuses the work done by other organizations such as IETF, IPSO Alliance, and Eclipse Foundation.

Presenter will walk through the steps involved and schematic of IoT systems and share few examples of integration of Industrial sensors to the IoT cloud platform. The mechanism to transport the LwM2M payload which is done over CoAP developed by IETF. The data model used to represent the network sensors provided by IPSO alliance standards will also be demonstrated.
