Simply logon and navigate to Overview > Introduction to IoT _________________________________________________________________________ Presenter: Geoff Sizer, Chair of Engineers Australia’s ITEE College and CEO, Genesys Electronics Design Description: Internet of Things (IOT) has been described as the defining technical trend of the coming decade, impacting every industry and business process. This webinar will provide an introduction to IOT for engineers from any discipline including ICT professionals not expert in the area. We also introduce the Applied IOT Engineering Community and outline how its activities will help any engineers drive innovation in their field. IOT refers to the integration of physical objects with a range of communication technologies, enabling them to be monitored and/or controlled remotely over the internet. However, IOT is far from simple. The spectrum of technologies that enable IOT include advanced electronics and sensor/actuator technologies, next generation communication networks, cloud services to store the massive proliferation of data, big data analytics to make sense of it, mobile app development to interface with it and a whole range of protocols to enable it all to work together. A key driver of IOT has been the relentless miniaturisation of computer chips, sensors, actuating devices, and radio transceivers in microcontroller ICs. This trend how now reached a tipping point where embedded systems can now be built into things and devices of almost any size at an affordable cost with sufficiently low power to enable batteries to operate the devices for up to ten years. This trend is opening a vast new landscape of potential applications for control systems. While there are a number of technical challenges still to be resolved to take full advantage of the potential of IOT technologies, the main challenge is business related. Chet Geschickter, research director at Gartner, said: "Many organizations have yet to establish a clear picture of what benefits IoT can deliver, or have not yet invested the time to develop ideas for how to apply IoT to their business. The second set of hurdles are the organizations themselves. Many of the survey participants have insufficient expertise and staffing for IoT and lack clear leadership." About the presenter: Genesys founder and CEO Geoff Sizer has a lifelong passion for electronics and technology, and an ongoing commitment to the electronics engineering profession. He has more than 35 years experience in electronic product development ranging from complex systems to simple consumer goods for a diverse range of industries and applications. Geoff is a Fellow of Engineers Australia, a Chartered Professional Engineer and registered on the National Professional Engineers Register. As a former President of the IREE, Geoff was instrumental in the formation of the ITEE College in Engineers Australia and is currently its chair. He has championed the formation of the Applied IOT Community of practice.. During his career Geoff has acted as a Director or Chief Technical Officer for several leading technology firms including Advanced Systems Research Pty Ltd, Advanced Spectrum Technologies Pty Ltd, EMC Assessors Pty Ltd, Telezygology Inc and Embertec Pty Ltd.

Navigate to Industry Applications > Smart Cities ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Presenters: Ryan Messina, Director and Systems Engineer, Messina Vision Systems What you will learn: How to design for humans and why machines think differently. What role machine vision brings within larger networks. How uncertainty affects information systems. Developing information systems that grow and cope with tacit knowledge. Description: This presentation will discuss machine vision and unstructured data types in the use of IoT systems. These technologies unlock many new opportunities, some examples of these are generating traffic flow control and monitoring, feeding into an IoT system and how this information can benefit a Smart City. We will discuss methods to measure environmental conditions that can impact how systems operate in the tested conditions. Further, we will suggest methods of contingency planning using information to turn a human-operated task to semi-autonomous and could eventually be capable of being a completely autonomous system. About the presenter: For the past three years Ryan Messina has been the Director and Systems Engineer at Messina Vision Systems focused on delivering machine vision solutions for rugged environments, his experience covers many industries including surveillance, manufacturing, Defence, agriculture and infrastructure. Ryan has a bachelor of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics) from Swinburne University and uses machine vision to assist gather additional information.

If organisations are to take advantage of the benefits of IoT, there needs to be a step change in the ability of engineers to take advantage of advanced analytics. However, there remains a lack of skilled resources and a bewildering variety of options in the solution stack (hardware + software + platform). In the energy analytics area, companies globally are expected to spend up to $4 billion annually in the manufacturing and utility sectors alone. However, they are also expected to only reap 30% of the potential value from their investments, due to poor identification and leveraging of actionable insights. As a result, it is expected that analytics as service will grow rapidly along with a range of business model innovations but organisations still need to understand what services they are procuring. This webinar aims to help prepare organisations to invest in data analytics by setting out the basics of the field and then addressing the massive changes taking place due to the Internet of Things. It will show how to get started, how to deal with vendors and how to bring people in your organisation along with you. The presentation will also include a number of energy analytics case studies, including from the textile industry in Asia. About the presenters: Umesh has over ten years’ experience in energy efficiency having worked with clients like the World Bank Group, IFC, Sweden Textile Water Initiative, Tat Motors, TERI, NALCO, Aditya Birla Group, SIDBI, Mardec, and Welspun across India, Bangladesh and Malaysia. He was the Energy Manager of the Year in 2013 for Energy Engineers India and was recognized for pathbreaking work in Energy Analytics in 2017 by AEE Western India Chapter.

The system moves soil moisture and climate data across the farm using a solar-powered 2.4GHz ZigBee mesh network and up to MEA’s ‘Green Brain’ web-application in the cloud that allows farmers to access their irrigation data from anywhere, at any time. To break into this field required a huge investment of funds over three years, a multi-disciplinary approach that hauled together electronic, mechanical, communications, software and web engineers plus external industrial design skills, a manufacturing link into China and all sorts of technical skills to set up the production line. Dr Skinner said: “It also took some thirty years of making environmental measurements in the bush to battle-harden the team. We then had to sell Plexus and keep it working until we crossed the ‘valley of death’ between early adopters and the early majority.” Over the past three decades MEA has built more than 2500 systems for wind and solar monitoring, irrigated agriculture, remote weather station networks, a web-enabled radio measurement system for Australian farmers, novel soil moisture displays for African farmers, salinity sensors for farmers in Bangladesh and a new-to-world sensor for getting living plants to talk to irrigators about their state of water stress. This is an end-to-end case study of the development of an IOT product - from sensors to radio to communications to web-applications, as well as marketing, product development and service. About the presenter: Dr Andrew Skinner’s founded MEA (Measurement Engineering Australia) in 1984 to carry out the three-year SA Wind Energy Survey. While running the company full-time, Andrew completed a Masters Degree and PhD in environmental measurements. His forty-year engineering career began in 1971 with studies in electronic engineering at the SA Institute of Technology. Andrew was awarded a Dean's Commendation for his PhD thesis from Adelaide University in 2009 and was the Engineers Australia South Australian Professional Engineer of the Year for 2015.
