Current agenda – AM technical presentations:

Keynote opening speech from “Lighting Technical Specialist” Jaguar Land Rover PLC

Factors that determine power consumption and range in wireless communication

This presentation will highlight the factors that contribute to the power consumption in Wi-Fi & Bluetooth communication, and how using alternate modulation schemes, it is possible to achieve extreme range in a Low-Power Wide Area Network.

Implementing an Ultra-Low Power Wireless Mesh for Sensor Networks

Wireless sensor networks are one of the fastest growing sectors for wireless communications today.  Applications are driven by countless different market requirements and making a choice of specific implementation requires a clear understanding of what the key objectives are in terms of priorities at a system level and then defining a feature set to match those. Competition in the sensor  networking space is high and under inevitable cost pressure due to volume potential but some networks need to be very special i.e. very low power and highly available.  This is only achievable by building some very specific techniques into the DNA of the network architecture.

Dust Networks, part of Linear Technology Corporation has many man years invested into making this a reality in the form of a simple to implement, positive out of box experience.

Current agenda – PM technical workshops:

Innovative solutions for connecting low-power, remote sensors to the Internet

This workshop will demonstrate and discuss the infrastructure needed to support bridging and gateway solutions, to enable Internet connectivity for remote applications based on Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy and Low-Power Wide Area Networks.

RF Design Tools and Wireless Connectivity in the IoT from Analog Devices

An interactive workshop showing the RF design tools and local support available from ADI and EBV Elektronik. This will give an overview of ADI’s Wireless Sensor Network Platform, identify some of the key technical parameters when defining and selecting a system, and show how ADIsimSRD Design Studio can used to optimise RF Connectivity in the Internet of Things.

LED efficiency and performance

The limits, the achievements, how far to the optimum?
Practical Demonstration of live Dust Networks Solution

A live network with hardware demonstrating live GUI based illustration of the formation of a mesh network with uplink data from sensors and downlink to mesh elements (motes).  Candidates will be able to interact with a live network and take a first-hand look at hardware and see practical implementations of energy harvesting powered network elements.  This will be carried out using the standard demo kit from Dust Networks plus some recent innovations in sensor and mote integration developed by the applications team.
