First IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC 2015) was a big success

Feedback from the large number of attendees who visited PrismTech booth at the first annual IoT Solutions World Congress that has just ended was that the event had been a big success.  Held in Fira, Barcelona, Spain and in partnership with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) the congress brings the world’s IoT players together to showcase the Internet of Things’ market.

Attended by over 4000 international IoT decision makers, with 120 speakers and 83 sessions spread across 6 different congress tracks, this year’s congress theme “Putting IoT to work” highlighted hot topics such as government’s role in IoT, collaboration and partnership models and dealing with start-ups amongst businesses. At the same time core issues such as security, interoperability, big data management, insights and analytics; and mobility remained the focus of many discussions.

Many attendees enjoyed exploring excellent exhibits such as Intel’s Automated Smart Greenhouse, Vodafone’s Connected Car, Carriots’ Lego Smart City and NEC’s Face/Age detection technology to name but a few.

PrismTech announced its Vortex Innovator Program (VIP) on the first day of the congress. The VIP provides access to Vortex Products to qualifying IoT startup companies with innovative new ideas, by removing any up front licensing costs and helping them to kick-start their IoT journey.

On the final day of the event, PrismTech CTO, Angelo Corsaro presented to the main conference on subject of “Smart, Secure and Efficient Data-Sharing in IoT”. The presentation was very well received and discussed the many capabilities of DDS fundamental to efficient real-time data sharing in IoT systems.

With a great atmosphere throughout the 3-day event, the feedback that PrismTech received from delegates, speakers and exhibitors alike was that the IoT SWC conference had been a massive success, roll on IOTSWC 2016.

 

Building Autonomous and Connected Vehicle Systems with the Vortex IoT Data Sharing Platform Webcast

Date: 24th September 2015
Location: Online

Why Attend:

  • Learn how companies are today using the Vortex IoT Data Sharing Platform to build autonomous and connected vehicle systems,
  • Understand the common data sharing requirements for autonomous and connected vehicles,
  • Learn about Vortex’s features that make it ideal for connected and autonomous vehicles.

Abstract:

Although Autonomous and connected vehicles may sound somewhat futuristic applications of the Internet of Things (IoT), the reality is that these systems are being built and operated today in special environments. The design of these systems pose some unique challenges due to the constraints imposed by the criticality of the applications and the heterogeneity of the deployment environments. To put it another way, autonomous connected vehicles should not crash into each other, nor into other vehicles, whilst at the same time have to deal with connectivity that changes depending on their location, e.g. connectivity in down-town San Francisco may not be the same as the connectivity experience in the Joshua Tree National Park.

This webcast will (1) showcase how PrismTech’s Vortex Data Sharing Platform based on the Object Management Group’s Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard is used today as the foundation of several autonomous and connected vehicles, (2) summarize the key requirements characteristic of these types of application, and (3) introduce the Vortex features that make it a perfect match for connectivity in autonomous and connected vehicle platforms and applications.

The webcast will last approximately one hour.
