22nd Workshop: Innovations in Wireless for IoT

6 December 2016 at imec – Leuven

Innovations in Wireless for IoT

This workshops builds on our successful workshop on wireless technologies for IoT. This time, we will cover the whole chain: from sensor to the app.

Our speakers from industry and academia will present recent innovations that enable the creation of smart and reliable IoT applications, such as smart high-resolution radars, reliable and accurate positioning, 169 MHz communication, automatic network orchestration, rapid (Sigfox) application development, and IoT testbeds.

Our speakers will inspire you by many applications, some of which will be (live) demonstrated.
