The Internet of Things (IoT) is a rather nebulous term that is being applied to everything from consumer-oriented smartwatches to smart cities and the industrial IoT (IIoT). If you’d like to find more about the latter two, you might want to join me at Penton’s three-day IoT Emerge conference at Chicago’s McCormick Place, starting on Nov. 1.
I will be hosting the IoT Engineering Track. The other tracks include Industrial IoT, IoT Security, and Smart Cities. You can check out trends and strategies, best practices, and technologies that are being employed in these areas. There will also be some real-world case studies presented. It will be a cross-industry event since IoT brings together many (often disparate) technologies and groups.
The technical sessions include:
- Smarter Products, Complicated Architecture: A Look at Common Pitfalls in Developing Connected Products
- A Low-Cost, Open-Source IoT Solution for Irrigation Management
- Why Executing on an IoT Strategy is Much More Than Simply Engineering a “Thing”
- IoT Strategy: Engineering, Science, and Art
- Exploring the Use of Sensors to Create Compelling Digital Journeys
- Connecting the Unconnected: Hardware Pitfalls to Avoid
- IT/OT Convergence: The Impact from the Industrial Internet of Things
