The day included breakout sessions for the Industrial IoT and Consumer IoT Work Groups to review progress and discuss next steps for the applied research projects focused on Smart and Connected Enterprise (predictive diagnostics of equipment) and Smart and Connected Home use cases.
April 2016 Event
The IoT Lab’s Industrial IoT and Consumer IoT Work Groups are actively engaged in developing the project roadmap for applied research projects focused on Smart and Connected Enterprise (predictive diagnostics of equipment) and Smart and Connected Home use cases respectively. In these projects, we are adopting a “learning by doing” approach using real-world scenarios and testbeds to address and learn about significant issues of common interest pertaining to IoT infrastructure, analytics and customer value.
At the April 28 Industry Event, attendees learned about the lab’s proposed plan of action for both Work Group projects and how companies can get involved in and benefit from these projects. Participants also had the opportunity to gain valuable practical insights from member companies, as well as from research projects being conducted by faculty and students in the IoT Lab. After the industry event, lab students shared their projects’ progress at the Poster Session.
February 2016 Events
The Consumer and Industrial IoT Work Groups met February 24 to continue work on the recently launched applied research projects. The Industrial IoT project is focused on Smart and Connected Enterprise (predictive diagnostics of equipment), while the Consumer IoT Work Group is taking on Smart and Connected Home use cases. In both of these projects, the work groups’ approaches are based on “learning by doing” using real-world scenarios to address and learn about common issues of interest pertaining to IoT infrastructure, analytics and customer value.
The day kicked off with updates on lab activities and the results of company interviews conducted by the lab. Next, Professors Shiyu Zhou and Kaibu Liu each gave presentations addressing IoT analytics challenges. In the afternoon, attendees broke into parallel work group sessions to develop study designs and activities and determine next steps.
Immediately after the Industry Session, attendees were invited to join IoT Lab students and staff in the lab for an immersive workshop with IBM engineers. Participants gained hands-on experience with Bluemix and learn how to connect it to Rapspberry Pi 2, temperature and humidity sensors, and smart devices.
