PC1: Harnessing the Power of Data Technology in Industrial Transformation
In a world where a factory can generate one petabyte of data daily, where will all the data associated with industrial IoT and its respective embedded systems environments reside? Designing for Industry 4.0 environments means considering how best to meet the storage requirements of embedded systems that need greater resilience, endurance and reliability for industrial operations. Any factory operation from increased efficiency to predictive maintenance, has specific physical considerations such as temperature, pressure, power and performance that must be considered when thinking through how best to capture, store, analyze and share data. Anything from hot vs. cold data, big vs. fast data, data in different formats from various architecture, data in sound, image, temperature, elevation, etc. have special considerations in Industry 4.0. This session will explore strategies for managing the data deluge that is approaching smart factories and other industrial environments in the connected era. Robert Rozario explores IIoT application use cases, their unique requirements, and the increasing role that storage at the edge is playing for industries like the manufacturing and industrial where data processing and analytics in real time are essential factors.

PC2: Autonomous, Low-Power Condition Monitoring with a Nanopower Sensor Monitor
To better ensure the reliability of industrial equipment, sensors are used to monitor environmental conditions such as voltage fluctuations, unwanted vibrations, etc. With the increase of these sensors, there is a driving need for circuits that are lower power, lower cost, smaller size, and autonomous. This session addresses how to design condition monitoring circuits using a nanopower sensor monitor and how to optimize these circuits for power, cost, size, and autonomy.

PC3: The Enabling Semiconductor Industry: Condition Monitoring Goes Digital
Emerging IIoT technologies have the potential to expand the reach of Condition Monitoring to markets and applications not previously practical or economically feasible. Although much of the IIoT conversation has revolved around wireless networks and cloud-based analytics, the real revolution may be taking place at the sensor level. For example, MEMS Accelerometers open the door to highly integrated digital solutions, in physical form factors and power levels that enable the Industrial OEM or Machine Builder to embed specialized CBM sensing solutions inside the machine, not just mounting on the machine after it is installed in the factory.  Digital sensor solutions enabled by solid state electronics can integrate data processing capabilities, generating condition indicators that can be communicated to the machine controller via an appropriate digital protocol. This session discusses the potential for digital sensor solutions enabled by solid state technologies to expand the art of Condition Monitoring to new types of equipment.
