Upcoming Webinars for October 2018

Susan Olsen

Good Afternoon IoT Community,

We would like to bring your attention to a couple of Webinars happening in the next two weeks.  Brief outlines are below, with more details and the registration links found on the IoT Calendar. https://iot.engineersaustralia.org.au/calendar.

We hope you can join us for these events.

9 October - IoT for Critical Applications – Making Regulatory Standards Work For You

Presenter:  Geoff Sizer, IoT Community Leader

Description:  IoT is increasingly finding its way into applications where safety, reliability, security and functional effectiveness are paramount.  This includes use in medical, transportation, industrial, defence and even aerospace applications.

The design, development and manufacture of electronics devices and software for use in these environments needs to comply with the requirements of international regulatory standards which go beyond the electromagnetic compatibility and radio communications standards which apply to all electronic devices. 

The presentation will draw on experience gained in taking an electronics and software development team through the process of certification of its Quality Management System to ISO 13485 for medical.

16 October –  IoT in Defence Part 2: Case Studies from Thales

Presenter:  Kerry Lunney, Country Engineering Director / Chief Engineer, Thales Australia. /International Council of Systems Engineering (INCOSE) President-Elect

Thales in Australia is part of a leading international electronics and systems group serving the defence, aerospace and space, security, and transport markets in Australia and throughout the world.

Description:  The ability to capture and analyse data from distributed connected devices offers the potential to optimize processes, create new revenue streams, and improve customer service. However, the IoT also exposes organizations to new security vulnerabilities introduced by increased network connectivity and devices that are not secured by design.  Likewise the ability to fully utilise an IoT product within the constraints of defence industry acquisition frameworks is not without its challenges. This presentation will cover these aspects, including technical governance regimes, to operate IoT “stuff” in the defence world.
