BTW, I work in large scale distributed RADAR systems.

Iron

Thanks Charles and Jennifer.

Charles' question was: What new areas are YOU working in?

Home and industrial automation

Charles' question was: What areas of the Smart Grid are you involved in?

I am not involved in any.

Thanks Charles, Jennifer et al.

Iron

Charles' question was: Any military applications (that you can talk about)?

I do not know any military application.

 

Charles' question was: If you are working in building automation, what older standards are you interfacing to?

I am interfacing to a x-10 system.

Thanks Charles, Jennifer, DN, Digi-key, et.tal.

Iron

Thanks Charles,  Great Lecture.

Iron

Thanks again Charles, see you tomorrow.

Iron

This fast evolution makes such that the offer goes beyound consumer expectations and ability to cope with. Therefore devices come packed with features that many users will never use.

Iron

Thanks all - see you tomorrow! Back to my "other" job!

Iron

Rebuild the Yugo plant!, cheap dependable transportation

Iron

True @cpu, and I hate the Euro headlights. I'm getting one without the LED light show in front.

@Kevin - good for you! My GC only has 176K but I wore it out.  The one I am enamored to has SIX MILES on it.  A l-o-n-g ways to go! :)

Iron

@cjlord - just got rid of my Grand Cherokee....194K, 18yrs.  Replaced it w/ a Wrangler Sport Unlimited.....so far, I am very happy!

 

Iron

Just watch how fast it all goes.    Intersting field (IOT IIOT) developing, again to fast. It's the reason most can't keep up with all the evolution of digital integration into society.  As for a new vehicle, Fred Flintstone had a rather good one.

Thanks Mr Lord for presentation, to all, enjoyable subject(s).

Iron

Thank you Charles and all. See you tomorrow.

Iron

One of the new Jeeps is Fiat-based. That's scary. But all the Jeeps look good and are selling well. Chrysler is firmly back on its feet.

Iron

thanks for the presentation

Iron

profit sharing and market lasting is in the diversity

Iron

Lots of things to think about -- thanks for the presentation

It was between the 4Runner and Grand Cherokee. I am pretty much settled on the Jeep. I had a GC for 14 years.

Iron

@cjlord other than Jeep, what car lines are you looking at?

Iron

And the Jeep I drove this AM had downloadable APPS for the center console!

Iron

FireFlyBlu - too true. I used to joke about the digital toaster. They are here. I joked about the USB automobile dashboard. They are here.  Digital screwdriver next!

Iron

I like and dislike the idea of a [screwdriver] having levels of features. What to do when the battery dies or it gets hacked? On the other hand, with such devices we could evolve to having universal devices that are used for whatever purpose comes at that moment.

Iron

new value to a screwdriver!! add torque to it right. amazing 

Iron

If corporate has it's way things you can't even dream of will have some digital in it. They take it to far. The user has to make a choice. a nice magnetic field could always put the infringing component to sleep though

Iron

What's unclear is what will come AFTER phones. Seems like we will have personal computing networking devices from now on. Maybe the person's own network with something that comes after Google Glass. A person walking down the street could have the UI integrates within him to control what he encounters.

Iron

is anyone designing a thermostat anymore. one and only dominate the market. any opportunity out of it?

 

Iron

Exactly, Don - like antilock braking

Iron

@cpu: Good point. Letting smartphones provide whatever UI you need (alla Nest) may be very practical in many situations. Of course that's not to say you can't integrate some basic controls into the system.

@cpu - I'm not thinking of a screw driver with a touch screen, I'm thinking of a screw driver that looks and works like your grandfather's screw driver, but transparently delivers some new, value-added service (whatever that may be, this is just hypothetical).

Iron

I think you are both right - web servers and apps are great UIs but not everything NEEDS a UI

 

Iron

See Junko Yoshida's recent article. Interesting stuff.

Iron

@ Don Pancoe @ CJLord Looking from another direction, more devices, cheaper devices, devices in everything... maybe we don't really want a UI in every device. The smartphone may actually become the ubiquitous user interface replacing all else.

Iron

@jamal I agree - fiber is an unsung hero for many many apps

Iron

 medical informatics - Not very well thought out. Just ordered from the top. Really should take a step back and look into the future to evaluate what really nneds to be done to "standardize" the whole system. To many players always doing thier own thing (for money).

Iron

interferences concern the media. fiber optics are best for that.

Iron

@ Charles : I guess inter-operability and "immunity" will become major issues !  Here (Québec) many groups are warning against RF smart meters (hydro electricity) and too many RF sources (like cell phone towers, etc.) ; many Ethernet-protocole devices sharing a same network could 'in theory' mis-behave !  Many RF devices would probably raisae the noise floor level in (RF) environments, so RF immunity but also 'functionality immunity' with so many radios listening for data !   Anarchy ??   future IEEE standards ?

Iron

I think embeded systems will be a huge part of the IoT. We are still in the "do everything with your iPhone!" stage, but people will start to realize a smart phone is not the best user interface for a lot of things. Embedding technology, smartly, in traditional devices is the next phase.

Iron

Interested in industrial applications with a great deal of steel.  Is there preferred communication protocol that is tolerant of interference?

Iron

Plug and Play, I guess. shift from component to device

Iron

Very true - medical informatics is its own tower of babel

 

Iron

Most Industrial robot code is proprietory, your communication is through a user interface (limited), it may do but for saftey you cannot get to the main program. You may be working with Make type robots, that's a different story

Iron

@fumplethumb - I think that it is a huge opportunity. There may be some new skills to learn but a good embsys engineer can make dissimilar things talk together. And that is IMHO a HUGE growth area.

Iron

@cghaba - I was wondering same thing. Value will almost certainly be found in cross-referencing data from seemingly unrelated sources, but each industry has its own protocol. Even a single field such as "medicine" has many incompatible systems.

Iron

@cghaba - see ancient story of Tower of Babel

 

Iron

@cjlord: What do you think the onset of the IIoT means for embedded engineers? Do you think the IIoT will render any particular skills more valueable or towards obsolescence?

Charles, for the moment there are some well defined areas where IoT applications are on their own way of development (specific platforms, protocols and standards). What is your opinion on the integration of IoT applications from different fields (ex. health monitoring and automotive)?

Iron

@Baruce:  Embarcadero Firemonkey (Delphi Pascal) has a robot control example for Android. Do some digging.

Iron

master protocol interpreter/translator?

Iron

read June Elektor FT311-D based Android user interface builder. It allows you to communicate with what ever with your android phone

Iron

Thanks Y'all - didn't know I had an AC-CENT...

Iron

There are a few questions about where M2M, Industry 4, and IIoT fit in. They do, depending on who you talk to. They all express the same concept and are different takes on the same basic function, although IIoT is more "global" in reach as it includes some human and making all protocols work together. I4 and M2M are more limited as to talking between two autonomous nodes.

We still need some better standards! IEEE IoT Task Force will be a big help here.

Iron

Outstanding lecture.

See you all hump day...

Iron

A prime example of the smart grid is the agrucultural industry's development of ISO 11783 the ISOBUS standard which allows any tractor and implement equipped with that technology to talk to each other. The tractor may control the implement or vice versa so that the farmer has complete control of which process he is controlling at the time. The industry has gone to "Plugfests" which are test meetings where each manufacturer's application software and hardware is tested in a common source to assure the systems work together. 

This is part of the larger farm management software being developed to use the data in the individual processes to develop knowledge for the entire system management.

Thanks Charles, Jennifer, Digikey & IEEE !

Iron

I  guess that I just have to research for myself how I can construct an IP/TCP stack protocol that my Android can invoke to speak  to  my robot.  This shouldn't be a big deal, after all. It's been public knowledge for at least twenty years.

But I'm slow.

I just thought that you'd show me how to hook it up.

Thank you.  (And I love your N. Carolinian  accent. It reminds me not only of a friend, but also of a I-wanted-her-to-be a girlfriend. And that was long ago. And you ain't her....)

 

Iron

@Gilbert3d-p, can I ask what your interest is in vehicle health monitoring and inspection?

Iron

What new areas are YOU working in?

At present knowing what and how.

Iron

Thanks much everyone!

Iron

Thanks Charles lot to think about.

Iron

Thank you.  Audio still wacky on IE.

Iron

Automated cars and trucks

Iron

?? What are the differences between IIoT and Industry 4, M2M ?

Iron

@Baruce, once again, as DaveWR and I both said, check out Fred Eady's class.  There are many many examples on the web that have tutorials on this.  Also, check out Adafruit tutorials.

Platinum

Thank you Charles, great lecture.

Iron

 

Jennifer, have you enabled the Course Eval link-?  (SurveyMonkey)

I forgot to thank ALL.

Iron
I'm interested, generally speaking, in hooking up sensors of all types (largely environmental) to computers/APIs via all sorts of connectivity means.
Iron
Exploring home security control, and deer (pest) warding via wireless controls. Want to push that into house status monitoring and control (e.g. sump pump failure, power failure, text alerts, etc, etc).
Iron

?? Charles, on slides 9 and 15, how do assets such as cars and trucks communicate with central data collection -- cell phone towers? satellite?

Platinum

What new areas are you working on?

Water quality monitoring. Challenge is going from underwater sonde, to HF then to internet (somehow).

 

Iron

Medical IoT is my focus.

Challenge is to link device wifi to any local smart device through browser and store data when in rural area without internet access.

Then later link async connect to the cloud based server when smart device connected to internet.

Iron

Negative further, Out.

Iron

Q: What new areas are YOU working on?

A: The new areas to me are home automation, mesh networks, and vehicle data collection/display.

Thanks for the presentation.

Iron

The conversations move too fast. How do I find the answer to my question in this fast moving stream. Is there a way to see just my threads?

Gold

Thanks Jennifer, and Charles. Great lecture!.

Iron

Rick753 - too many!! LOL

Iron

Thank you Charles and Jennifer

Fine presentation Charles - thanks.

 

Iron

Thank you. Looking foward to the rest of the week.

Iron

Show me an example of an Android that tells a robot what to do,  please!

 

Iron

Thank you Charles and Jennifer for providing today's segment.

Iron

I work in very large scale entertainment (think theme parks)

Iron

the home energy management killer app is to trade kilowatts and negawatts in realtime -- but only when customers see realtime prices.  when power prices get to $1000/mwh, i'll turn off my electric hot water heater, and turn down my a/c -- but only if you pay me the incremental/decremental price

Iron

Thanks Charles and Jennifer.

Iron

Thank you Charles

Iron

More data on Vehicle health inspection and monitoring

I'm looking to work with Robotic systems. 

Iron

I am working on the interface between personal networks and WAN.

Gold

Thank you for another outstanding presentation Charles.

Iron

Not working, yet, on IIoT.

Iron

Charles, thanks again.

How many cups of coffee does it take to be able to talk that quickly :-)

Iron

I like the fact that you are (audatorially and obviously) from North Carolina.

 

Iron

Thank you Charles, Jennifer, and Digi-Key

Platinum

Thanks Charles and Jennifer

Some new areas that i am interested in are Video Confercing, and VOIP.

Iron

I am doing some early-stage work in consumer devices that could potentially integrate with the smart grid. Very early stage, can't really say more.

Thanks again.  Wiil be here tomorrow.

Is the audio over? It cut out on slide 16 or 17.
Iron

Working on enterprise devices.

Iron

Environmental and medical applications

Iron

Home automation, health management

Iron

Environmental sensing

Iron

A lot of Big Data will be stored and mined later by social and behavioral researchers probably.

Iron

Aerospacecraft telemetry and information data files

Iron

78rpm - interconnection of electrons (e.g., wind, solar) is very different from interconnection of data.  data is where the value is

Iron

I am working on the interface between personal networks and WAN. How to capture, analyze, and use the data. 

Gold

Charles' question was: What new areas are YOU working in?

I was doing a little smart grid work, load-shedding devices etc., way back in the early-mid '90s.

Iron
Smart grid...still researching & experimenting; but so far mostly edge applications.
Iron

What is the different between cyber-phisical system (CPS) and IoT?

Iron

1984 Orson Wells, a few years off.

Iron

smart-grid will take off when customers are exposed to real-time electricity prices and can build interfaces to react in real-time

Iron

What technology stack should we use to organize and analyze the Big Data from IOT. Yes, some of this is structured data such as IIOT data, but other data such as healt data is unstructured. Will you discuss this?

Gold

My typo: "enable my Android to tell my robot to the turn left...." should read "enable my Android to tell my robot to turn to the left...."

Sorry about that.

 

Iron

@Robandee, my experience is that some utility companies are hostile to grid connection of solar and wind generation.  They try to make it hard on you. Some utilities are cooperative and some are hostile.

Platinum

Everyone...But someone needs to start the big investment which seems huge looking at slide 14

 

Iron

I am not working in the smart grid, but it seesm that it could control things like the power outage we had in the Northeast a few years ago.  It could automatically reroute the grid.

 

Iron

smartgrid is value-added and vendors will do the interconnect -- as long as they have access to your data.

Iron

To answer your question of slide sixteen:

Just show me how to enable my Android to tell my robot to the turn left. Then the right. Then, to bow his head. And then I want him/her/it to ask me how I'm feeling on this bright, sunny morning!

 

Iron

Everyone, only way to get it done

Iron

who is going to pay for smart grid? Tax payers? Users?

 

Iron

weather underground (wundergroud) and cwop weather have already done a great job of connecting thousands of personal weather stations and integrating the data

Iron
Not working in Smart Grid, but interested in home power generation (solar, wind) and think coordination with Smart Grid might be helpful, or even required.
Iron

Actively working on integrating sensors into the smart grid.

Iron

What areas of the Smart Grid are you involved in?

none/ however good to know

Iron

?? : Not working in the IIot market but would be interested in joining...

Any suggestions ?   ;-)

 

Iron

Charles' question was: What areas of the Smart Grid are you involved in?

Not directly involved in this yet but I am considering it with green power to grid.

Iron

Smart grid - is being worked on but the rebuild of our electrical infrastructure seems to be just a political carrot. If this were China it would have been rebuilt already. No real energy policy or motivation to just do it.

Iron

Monitoring plant processes interfacing with PLCs and, for personal use, some home automation.

Iron

Not working with Smart Grid yet.

Iron

Not working on smart grid

Smart grid local control system within an islanded microgrid

Iron

Elster, L+G, and Itron are working on an IPv6/6LoWPAN based networking stack over sub-GHz in the Neighborhood Area Network (NAN) Working Group. Wi-Sun is doing the same in the Japan centric consortium for NAN networks.

Iron

You might add connections to the weather sensing network to your Smart Grid slide: local short term weather forecasts (temperature, wind condidtions) are critical to power dispatch decisions with renewables as part of the generation mix...

Iron

I've not done any smart grid work but am interested.

Iron

Q: What areas of the Smart Grid are you involved in?

A: None so far. 

Iron

Not working yet with energy smart grid systems.

Iron

Providing equipment for power generation.

Iron

I previusly worhed as an Operator/Dispatcher for 33.5 years at a Hydro electric Generating Station

Iron

Charles' question was: What areas of the Smart Grid are you involved in?

not working in smart grid

Platinum

Highway assest management, sensors, cameras, lighting control, etc. Seems like it does not totally work as eveyrone is sitting at a red light, standing still on the Xway - more carbon build up, more tax. Needs some help.

Iron

Stop teasing me! Show me how to hook up my Android so that I might rule the world!

 

Iron

Interesting....smart structures w/ stress sensors, temp sensors, pressure sensors, etc.

Iron

Working on militry primarily proprietary protocols over TCP/IP on copper or glass ethernet.

Iron

I made some university profs uncomfortable when I described a vision application I worked on because they were all working on black projects doing exactly the same thing. I never worked on any black projects. 

Iron

@FireFlyBlu Seriously I am considering such cars. No electronics to fail.

Iron

No military, just industrial.

Iron

@mcurry, comment about previous military.  Right.  Been doing this a long time ,long  before name of IoT

(Nor am I working on asset mgmt)
Iron

me neither...just hobbies mostly

Iron

We use asset tracking, via RFID, through our engines and other high-end products in our warehouse.

Iron

Any military applications (that you can talk about)?

Military stuff I worked on in the past required very, very, reliable communications. Internet to unreliable for critical mission stuff.

Iron

stick with a '69 Ford or Chevy, easier to trubleshoot

Iron

No military applications.

Iron

Not exactly asset management, but another area is the new farming systems management approach which manages all the inputs for crop growth and applications so that a farmer has complete knowledge of his crop process.

Not currently working on defense-related projects
Iron
No military applications to talk about.
Iron

no Military applications.

 

Iron

Not working with building automation either

Iron

Military work was sensitive.  Assets were tracked very well. And long before anyone called it the IoT.

Iron

@Baruce, Check out the Design News CEC archives for January 13-17 for connecting Android device to internet.  Class by Fred Eady.

Platinum

No asset management or mililtary application.

Iron

Iron

@Baruce -- see the Fred Eady classes. Also Embarcadero Firemonkey.

Iron

We use an RFID & WIFI hybrid system to track equipment cycles, run times and automated maintenance notifications

Iron

No asset management exp. I've worked with the Air force in Automatic test sets.

Iron

Startup coming out with smart cars costing $10,000

Iron

Not working in military applications but read an example of asset management on cruise ships

Iron

No current  military applications.  Cannot talk about the past applications.

Iron

From Slide 11, Charles asked about Asset Tracking:  Previous contract  had been earlier developing a method of tracking foot soldiers on the ground.

100+ processors in high end veichles

Platinum

Charles' question was: Any military applications (that you can talk about)?

Hi Charles, the RTI system/asset management looks interesting, where would a person find some more information on that?

Iron

I want to connect my Android to a device!

Where do I learn how to do that?

(And just by the way, I do recognize that you DO KNOW what you are talking about. BRAVO!)

 

Iron

If you are working in building automation, what older standards are you interfacing to?


I worked in the past in building automation using BACnet protocol (Ethernet, RS485, RS232)

Iron

Pack of gum may not have RFID tracking, but a pallet full of cases of packs of gum would.

Iron

LONWorks has been a common standard for passenger rail vehicle control sytsems (doors, propulsion, diagnostics etc.), but Industrial Ethernet is gaining grounds. Just need provision for dust, vibration in connectors, e.g. M12 connectors.

Iron

No building automation, but some automated sensing

Iron

RS485 and DALI for lighting

Iron

Target store have automated ligting. and i actually thought the store was closed but it was automate lighting

Iron
Interested in home security LED lighting control
Iron

Lighting - Lutron sends control data for dimming over the AC line. e.g. their DIVA system. Anyone familiar with whether this is standards-based?

Iron

@kchandra - Article in Washington Post just today about the Nest Developer Program. 

Iron

In some buildings the heat from the lights IS the source of heat for the building.  I used to work in one.

Standards for ModBus and other CAN products.

Iron

No matter what the phisical transport layer is, all the systems I have worked with used alpha-numeric ascii characters as the data within the message. Very few used raw binary such as floating point format.

Iron

Google's Nest has great potential for home automation.

Iron

Not working in building automation.

Iron

My first job was buildinmg automation.  Never since.

Iron

Not working in Building automation but I've seen Zigbee, Wifi and Bluetooth with POE.

Iron

Deterministic timing of ethernet is required for use in aircraft avionics systems

Iron

for Determinism in ISA100.11a and WirelessHART both use Time Sycnronized Channel Hopping (TSCH)

 

Iron

What slide are we on?

Gold

Charles' question was: If you are working in building automation,

 


I havent worked on this

 

Iron

Many years ago I helped design portions of the "SMART HOUSE" protocols (that was a trademarked phrase at the time but has been defunct for years). Also worked on DeviceNet and ControlNet and CAN but those aren't really building automation oriented. Currently doing mostly BTLE and Wi-Fi.

Iron

ProfiBus, MODbus, DH+, ProfiNet...

Iron
Not working in building automation, but industrial comm system was very primitive (Rs-485 with custom serial interfaces)
Iron
Re building automation, not really working with existing older standards
Iron

I'm not working in Building Automation, but would like to learn.

Iron

I've run across 20mA loops just recently in a rail application.

Iron

unshielded cat 4 5 5e

Iron

Ethernet and RS485

Iron

Wireless for Industrial is dominated by ISA100.11a and WirelessHART... ZigBee is not used as far as I know.

 

Iron

Also at lot of ModBus RTU over RS485

Iron

I am using Zwave home automation, i picked this as equipment was reseasonably priced and also the Vera 3 acts as a router and also caries the internet along with Zwave.

Iron

Have not worked on this

Iron

Indusrial noise is a nightmare

Iron

No Building automation.

For Industrial Automation I'm moving everything to Ethernet/IP with some ControlNet from Allen Bradley/Rockwell

Iron

Industrial Ethernet, PoE, profibus, devicenet, proprietary 485

Iron

Bldg automation (sort of) 900MHz link with custom protocol.

 

Iron

Zwave is a common home/building automation protocol. Don't know if that qualifies as "older".

Iron

Not working with building automation systems

GPRS and ZigBee within a wireless sensor network

Iron

As AB PLC are included and Johnson controls, software from them are included.

Iron

Charles' question was: If you are working in building automation, what older standards are you interfacing to?

You are eligible to earn IEEE Professional Development Hours by attending these courses and participating in the chat function. Additionally, we are no longer using the points system, offering "graduation", or giving grades. The IEEE hours are taking the place of that. There are some important things for you to know about earning the hours. The most important ones are that you need to attend these courses live, you need to attend a minimum of two of them per semester, you need to fill out a course evaluation form within 2 weeks of the end of the class, you need to attend 4 out of the 5 classes per course, and you need to participate in the chat function every day you attend. Please click on the link at the top of this page that says "How do I earn IEEE professional development hours" to read all of these important details and more.

The streaming audio player will appear at the top of this web page when the show starts at 2 PM Eastern time today. If the audio doesn't start automatically, click on the play button to start it. Note however, that some companies block live audio streams. If when the show starts, the audio bar doesn't appear or you don't hear any audio, try refreshing your browser. If that doesn't work, try using Firefox or Google Chrome as your browser. Some users experience audio interruptions with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. If that doesn't work, your company is likely blocking the live stream. The class will be archived immediately following our live taping and you will be able to listen to it then. You shouldn't experience any problems with the audio when listening on-demand.
