  • Communication & Control Testbed for Microgrid Applications

    ENERGY & UTILITIES

    There are many challenges today with traditional grid design including increasing demand, new electrical loads, and aging infrastructure. The Microgrid Communication and Control Testbed will introduce the flexibility of real-time analytics and control to increase efficiencies in this legacy process – ensuring that power is generated more accurately and reliably. This Testbed is designed to show how processing, communication, and monitoring technologies can help improve grid efficiency and resiliency. Microgrid technology is thought of as a critical component to help properly manage the growing adoption of renewable generation technology such as wind and solar.

  • Continuous noise monitoring and sound event detection & identification

    INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY

    An online portal with continuous information of sound levels and sound detection and identification of events will be presented as an exposition testbed. The solution uses the information captured by a network of multichannel microphones to monitor and study the impact of sound in urban environments supported by FIWARE platform. With advanced and innovative 3D audio technologies FI-Sonic measures noise and extracts the relevant information about the sound events such as unusual sound levels, the location of sound events, accidents, gun shots, distress situations.

  • Energy, Information, and Avatars

    ENERGY & UTILITIES

    Schneider Electric will demonstrate an array of four, dual-axis solar panels that rotate to track the movement of the sun. While this system does optimize solar energy production, the true innovation comes from the real-time synchronous link between each panel and its digital model. When a physical system is connected in such a symbiotic relationship with its virtual representation, we call the resulting interconnected system a “cyber-physical avatar”.

    Using augmented reality, Schneider will provide an interactive experience in which users can view health and status data from the panels, receive training in installation and field maintenance procedures, and even control the physical orientation of the array.

  • Industrial IoT beneath our cities. Interoperability and IPv6

    INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY

    This testbed will give you the instruments to change conditions of a water stream, then watch how the system reacts by using IoT technologies like low power wireless, IPv6 or FIWARE. Follow the path that starts with a water sensor and continues as a data flow, becoming valuable information for water management. A single sensor may be valuable for many stakeholders, like the Water Utility, the local government, the Port Authority or a farmer association. To allow sharing data (between different organizations or within a single organization) they use an API called FIWARE NGSI which is part of a standardization initiative for Smart Cities and is available as Open Source.

  • Smart Airline Baggage Management

    TRANSPORTATION & LOGISTICS

    Today about 7 out of 1000 airline bags are mishandled (delayed, damaged or lost). The testbed demonstration will be shown using live and emulated devices (such as airline baggage and ground reader) and data.  Actual smart baggage trackers / RFID sensors will be shown that generate live data when they move – illustrating how the trackers are used with and applied to airline checked bags generating baggage data and alerts.  To demonstrate how geographically tracking a bag’s progress from departure airport to arrival airport, works within the testbed applications (delivering data to airline systems, baggage management company systems and to passengers with smartphones) the testbed uses small smart devices that emulate a bags passage, and the geo-location messages and alerts it generates, through the airport and airline systems from checkin to baggage collection at the carousel.

  • Surgical Kit Tracking Solution

    HEALTHCARE

    HCL_IoT_WoRKS

    System integrator HCL leveraged various technologies to develop a surgical kit tracking solution for a leading multinational medical devices player.

    Currently there is a lack of approach to effectively track, route and reduce surgical kit inventory – worth billions of dollars. This IoT solution for a classic inventory management problem with added technical complexity of stringent healthcare requirements, is based on holistic approach to address a business problem – maintaining optimal inventory of assets (surgical kits) to meet uncertain and stringent demands of Providers (hospitals).

  • Time-Sensitive Networking Testbed

    MANUFACTURING

    The goal of this testbed is to display the value of new Ethernet standards referred to as Time-Sensitive Networks in a Manufacturing ecosystem of applications. TSN enables a standard, single, open network infrastructure supporting multi-vendor interoperability and integration. The technology will be used to support real-time control and synchronization of high performance machines over a single, standard Ethernet network. This testbed proposes to be an early implementation of TSN. As such, it will show the value of the technology as well as some of the challenges in implementations from a number vendors. This testbed will not only document some of the value, but will provide feedback to the relevant standards organizations on areas of further clarification or improvement.

  • Transformation of business operations through IoT enabled edge to cloud video, sensors and advanced analytics

    BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION

    The objective of this testbed is to demonstrate the latest transformational capabilities that exist in the service industry using IoT technologies – video analytics, smart screens and advanced dynamic analytics and big data to elevate the customer experience – utilizing a cloud IoT platform. The testbed will consist of NEC and select ecosystem partners providing edge sensors, gateways, user communication devices and edge video analytics engines all generating IoT data. Exhibit attendees will interact and have a hands-on experience with the technology while experiencing its transformational business outcomes. While a retail scenario is used to provide attendees with a familiar experience, the concepts and technology are readily transferrable to any other service, public sector, justice and public safety, or transactional based business or industry.
