Vanja Samuelsson
Founder and CEO Qoitech

The design of integrated antennas for IoT devices is not as trivial as it seems. Off-the-shelf antennas are not performing as expected because different effects within the device (total dimensions, materials, housing, etc.). The proposed presentation aims to clarify typical antenna concepts and to highlight those parameters to be considered in earlier stages when designing a device with an integrated antenna.

Jordi Balcells-Ventura received the M.Sc and Ph.D degrees in Telecommunications Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, in 2004 and 2011 respectively. Since 2011 he is with the department of Antennas and EM Modelling of IMST GmbH, where he is an antenna researcher engineer, involved in several industrial and public founded projects. He has experience in the complete process of antenna design, including specifications, design, electromagnetic simulations, manufacturing, measurements and final analysis. These antennas targeted different bands and applications such as RFID (13.56 MHz), VHF (127 MHz) ISM (868 MHz), GPS (1.575 GHz), Wlan (2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz), Satellite communications (X-band and Ka-band), WPAN (W-band).

Simon van der Jagt
Founder NOWI

Power remains a bottleneck in large scale IoT deployment. In applications where battery life is insufficient replacing batteries is costly and often impossible. With new developments in energy harvesting technology NOWI is solving this problem and changing IoT devices form Plug&Play to Plug&Forget.

Simon van der Jagt is the CEO of NOWI. Nowi is developing an Energy harvesting PMIC that enables Internet of Things devices to live forever. Instead of needing to continuously bring energy to your device in the form of cables and battery changes, Nowi enables companies to use the energy that is already readily available around the device. This can be light, heat, movement or even radio waves. There is energy all around us that can be used to power IoT devices.

Stefan Zimmermann
CEO Comtac

Nowadays time to market becomes more and more important to bring a good idea as fast as possible to the market. Away from the classical model of serial development towards parallel structures in the entire process. In order to be able to quickly bring larger quantities to the market in series quality, a wide wealth of experience and a broad existing base and infrastructure are required.

The key question is: how to work in parallel on an interdisciplinary basis without errors creeping in?

Speed can only be achieved with a modular system of pre-developed solutions. This allows the processes to be accelerated, parallelized and, through experience with similar solutions, the risk of failures or errors can be minimized due to the shortened development and test time.

The key tasks include a project manager who keeps an eye on all steps, intensive reviews of all steps, immediate involvement of production in order to be able to procure the material and test equipment at an early stage.

Our customers can test standard products concurrently and create the software in the cloud.

The small but powerful development crew of comtac, led in the sense of a start-up, with a 30 year experience background, is embedded in the Amalthea Group with over 300 employees and over 60 million group sales. With the electronics producers www.gesys.ch and www.elfab.ch we have the possibility to offer you everything from one source from the development to the delivery of serial devices. Due to the close cooperation we can react very fast to adapted delivery situations and are treated with high priority within the group of companies.

In the group of companies we are able to develop small devices up to devices which have e.g. to meet high medical requirements. For our producers, quantities in the six-figure range can also be easily achieved. Through the cooperation of partners also outside Switzerland, we are able to realize manual manufacturing processes at optimal cost.

In this talk, we introduce LoRa®TLS as a security solution that approaches the BSI-compliances for Smart Metering in Germany. In particular, the solution achieves Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS), which is a cryptographic feature that is in general recommendable for WAN communication.

Adding TLS (with BSI-complained cipher suites and certificates) to achieve PFS on top of and transparent to LoRaWAN is not trivial. Besides a protocol (fragmentation and scheduling, etc.) implemented on an interlayer between LoRaWAN-MAC and TLS/application, an extended analysis of the up- and down-link capacity of 868 MHz LoRaWAN is required, which is also part of the presentation by hand.

LoRa®TLS was developed in cooperation between Gelsenwasser AG and PHYSEC GmbH.

What is the shortest path to gaining an advantage over competitors in the current days and age? Intelligent connected devices (products) and services which generate data to better understand the world around us, the consumers which use our products and The Province of Drenthe heard about LoraWAN and decided to facilitate the infrastructure needed for the next generation of products and machines. To stimulate innovation and to provide a fieldlab where every citizen living in Drenthe could experiment and benefit from the newest technology.
Adri will show you how the companies, the government, citizens and even the forestry benefit from LoraWAN.

Adri Wischmann is the founder of IoT Nederland, a Dutch Full-stack IoT-solution-provider.

Adri is an electronics engineer and a computer technician who spent the first 30 years of his career in the finance industry doing what we now would call “big data analysis on financial markets”. But as the old saying goes: “once an electronics engineer, always an electronics engineer” he stepped out of the financial industry and back into what is now called Internet-of-Things.

His company does IoT product-design and prototyping for SME’s with lots of solutions which require wireless monitoring. This is one of the reasons IoT Nederland got involved with LoraWAN in an early (pre-kickstarter) stage. Being an avid Smart City enthusiast Adri is a asked to speak at many international conferences on this topic. He has been involved in rolling out a private LoraWAN-network (also connected to TTN/TTI) for the province of Drenthe (500.000 inhabitants on 2700 km2) called DIDI (roughly translated to the Drenthe Internet of Things Initiave). He is also the driving force behind www.WhatTheHackathon.nl a small company that regularly organizes Hackathons (the next one will be on IoT & LoraWAN, March 9&10th 2019)
