- Sensor Processing Live Demonstration
For this session one of our group members will bring in a homegrown Software Defined Radio which is used to read and translate various industrial sensor signals across protocols. There will be a live demonstration of this technology with specific applicability to multi-protocol sensor environments. Pizza and refreshments will be served.
- Cloud/edge architectures for collecting and analyzing IIoT data
After a great kick-off meeting, we will spend time in this session learning from each other about the various cloud/edge architectures folks are using behind their IIoT products. This will be an interactive whiteboard discussion, with a focus on connecting to data sources (machines and sensors), moving, transforming, and analyzing data. Pizza and refreshments will be served. 6:00 - 6:30 - Greet and eat 6:30 - 7:45 - Discussion on cloud/edge architectures 7:45 - 8:00 - Wrap-up and planning for next meeting
- Getting started with the smart factory - where does one begin?
**Reschedule of February meeting which was cancelled due to snow storm** For this kick-off meeting, we will host an open discussion about smart factory initiatives - where have folks begun, what are the most surprising things they've learned, and what are their future plans? We will have representatives from some local manufacturing companies talk about their specific projects as a way of kick-starting the discussion. Pizza and refreshments will be served.
