TensorFlow is an easy to use and extremely powerful, open sourced library for machine learning applications. Image recognition is highly dependent on the environment, pose, lighting, etc., in most image detection algorithms, Tensorflow uses deep learning and neural networks to accurately identify and classify objects irrespective of these factors. In this paper, the implantation of image recognition is done on a portable Raspberry Pi Board along with a Raspberry Pi camera to obtain a live feed of the surroundings. The entire system runs on Python based code to achieve maximum efficiency. This unique ability can be used in a retail environment to help the customers identify the location of each product and hence make their shopping experience more effective and convenient.

Key Takeaway

What is the need for AI for the future, the stability, and maturity of IoT technologies?
What are the real-world use cases of the technology convergence?
What are the various Machine and Deep Learning Algorithms for Intelligent IoT.

BUILD SMART HARDWARE THE RESPECTS USERS’ FREEDOM

Abhas Abhinav founder & hacker-in-charge, Mostly Harmless

By Abhas Abhinav founder & hacker-in-charge, Mostly Harmless (Speaker Profile)

There are three components of any IoT or embedded hardware product/solution:

  • the hardware itself,
  • the software that runs on the hardware device,
  • the software that runs on the cloud (and which the device talks to)

The speaker will explain the role that free/open source software can (and should) play in each of these areas.

Key Takeaway

How can an IoT solution be hosted completely locally? ie. without depending on any propreitary component on the “cloud”?

  • How can all components of a solution be licensed as free/open source software?
  • What are the benefits of releasing and licensing hardware designs under free/open source licenses
  • Why is it important to care about such an ecosystem so that we can protect our privacy and retain control over such solutions in the long run

BRIDGING OT AND IT

Gokul P Deshpande, CEO, C-MOS Processes

By Gokul P Deshpande, CEO, C-MOS Processes (Speaker Profile)

Industrial IoT has crossed the turf of disillusionment and is on the way to steady growth of success. Biggest hindrance is the Cost Escalation due to innumerable Network Protocols (Modbus RTC, Modbus TCP, ASCII, PROFIBUS, PROFINET, DF-1, EtherNet/IP, CC-Link, MelsecNet, FX, etc.) in the Brown Field as well as Green Field Automation also. As well the requirement of reliable and secured bridging network between OT and IT.

Falling cost of Memory, Internet Speed & Bandwidth, High Reliable and High Performance Servers on the Cloud has brought advanced computing in reach of small factories. Protocols like REST-APC, HTTPS and MQTT has made transfer of data reliable, quick and real time. OPC UA is further making the task easier.

 

 


OPEN SOURCE EDGE PLATFORMS ENRICHING IOT

By Sanil Kumar D (Speaker Profile) and Krishna Kumar, (Speaker Profile) Chief Architects, Huawei India

Sanil Kumar D, Chief Architect, Huawei 

Edge computing allows data produced by the Internet of things (IoT) devices to be processed closer to where it is created instead of sending it across long routes to data centers or clouds.

Doing this computing closer to the edge of the network lets organizations analyze important data in near real-time – a need for organizations across many industries, including manufacturing, health care, telecommunications, and finance.

The flow of this talk is as follows,

    • Story of Edge computing,
    • Compare and Contract with IoT,
    • Open source Edge computing platform – in detail, Key requirements, Architecture,
    • How edge computing can enrich IoT and its future.

      Krishna Kumar, Chief Architect, Huawei 

 

Key Takeaway

  • Understanding of Edge Computing Key requirements
  • architecture and available platforms
  • Also, some future possibilities
