Dev Bhattacharya is currently Director of Hardware Engineering at Moog-Crossbow and leads the system and hardware development of complex IoTs and embedded systems based on various sensors and devices including wireless, inertial, magnetometers etc. Dev has a Master Degree of Science in computer and systems engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and has successfully led and managed development of system architecture, system hardware, diagnostics & test software of complex embedded SOC and system products with sensors, networking, wireless and multi-media from concept to volume production at various companies including Cisco, Intel, Logitech and Rockwell Collins.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is driven by an expansion of the Internet through the inclusion of physical objects including industrial devices combined with an ability to provide smarter services to the environment as more data becomes available. Various IoT applications covering industrial domain are already available. Successful deployment of these applications connecting devices, sensors and smart gateways calls for multiple protocols at various layers of networking stack (transport, network, link/phy), layers of application processing and other associated functions including security. The limited capability of devices and industrial nature of applications calls for special system design considerations to make end to end solutions work. The system requirements of various industrial IOT applications are different. Appropriate hardware and software based system design is needed to meet industrial IoT system requirements including range, power, size, cost, performance, interoperability, security, etc. This presentation will cover fundamentals and some examples of system design approach to end to end industrial IoT solution

Industrial Automation is here. We are seeing more and more customers implementing Automation in their Operations of their business. By doing this the huge gap between Operations and Information Technology (IT) is shrinking. In the past the IT department and Operations Departments did not talk and did not plan together. With the advent of Automation in Operations the drive to implement IT into more and more areas is apparent, but incredibly difficult. Historic IT implementations followed IT rules and workflows, but these are completely different to business workflows and implementation needs. To add to the difficulty is the fact that security has to be prelevant, but again using the best of IT and the needs of Operations. With more and more sensors coming to play this explosion is happening and needs to be managed in a unified and single format. We will explore what companies are doing now to support this convergence of IT and Operations and set some best practices from customers in the market.

Title: Lessons learned in fielding driverless (autonomous) vehicles in industrial applications like mining, material handling, and agriculture
Time : 11:30-12:00
Mr. Torrie has a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Utah State University and is a founder and CEO of Autonomous Solutions Inc. (ASI) in Logan Utah. Prior to founding ASI 14 years ago, Mr. Torrie worked at Utah State University where he managed two NASA Space Shuttle Payloads. ASI develops and sells systems of driverless equipment in Mining, Military, Agriculture, Material Handling, Automotive Proving Grounds and Industrial Cleaning.
ASI has driverless systems operating around the world in markets like mining, agriculture, material handling, military, and automotive proving grounds and there have been many lessons learned. Mel Torrie will share examples of fielding challenges and what these challenges have taught his company Autonomous Solutions Inc.
