VIRTUAL EDITION – WEBINAR : Tuesday 8 September 2020, 1.30 PM
TOPIC OF THIS WORKSHOP
Industrial IoT applications often come with very specific challenges and requirements for wireless communication technologies, such as (very) low latency in command and control systems, high reliability in safety-critical applications, and high data rates in computer vision powered IoT.
In this workshop we present technological innovations for wireless-controlled industrial IoT applications, and we link them to use cases presented by industry.
Several innovations will be demonstrated through pre-recorded movies.
Participation in this workshop is open to all players in wireless technology, from technology providers and system integrators, to providers and end-users of solutions for (industrial) IoT applications.
This workshop also serves as the final assessment workshop of the EU-project ORCA (Orchestration and Reconfiguration Control Architecture) in which imec and KU Leuven serve as consortium members.
Virtual edition due to corona outbreak.
Programme: Presentations and Demos
Kris Hermus, Coordinator Wireless Community & Innovation Program Manager, imec
Ingrid Moerman, Professor, imec-IDLab-UGent
State-of-the-Art in Software-Defined Wireless Networking
General intro to the concept of SDR/SDN. What’s available on the market and how can companies use these technologies today?
Challenges & Requirements for Wireless Connectivity in Robotics Applications
Intermodalics and sister company Pickit give eyes to mobile, flying, diving and industrial robots.
This talk gives an overview of some use-cases and challenges for wireless communication technologies in computer vision powered industrial IoT.
|14h20||Challenges & Requirements for Wireless Connectivity in latency-sensitive and reliable applications
Wim Sandra, Director R&D and Product Management, Televic Conference
slides (members only, login required)
|14h30||Boosting the performance of WiFi HaLow with the ORCA software-defined radio testbed
Marleen Boonen, CEO & Founder, Methods2Busines
slides (members only, login required)
We explain how we have combined the Methods2Business WiFi HaLow (802.11ah) solution with ORCA software-defined radio functionality, achieving concurrent multiple sensing for better channel utilization in Wi-Fi HaLow.
General introduction to demos: the ORCA wireless-controlled factory
DEMO SESSION (10min per demo)
Videos are available on the ORCA-project website.
Demo 1 – 26 GHz mm-Wave communication for video streaming
A camera is installed on a mobile robot for live inspection of the factory, it leverages on mmWave uplink with moderate throughput, a low-latency and reliable transmission at the downlink for the beam control, providing the capability of dynamic control on the physical layer (PHY).
Demo 2 – Low latency context-aware IoT control
Robots on the assembly line are simultaneously controlled via an SDR based multi-channel IoT gateway offering user-controlled service on each channel, while a Doppler radar senses the environment (e.g., speed of moving parts in nearby machines) to provide context-awareness.
Demo 3 – Distributed End-to-end Network Slicing and Orchestration
Industrial applications with diverging service requirements can coexist on top of a shared infrastructure, leveraging end-to-end network slicing, enabled through a distributed orchestration of resources across multiple network segments.
AGVs in the ORCA warehouse rely on multi-RAT and control in the cloud to transfer parts between the assembly and the storage. The usage of multiple RATs provides high reliability, and reduced latency links for remote control.
