Microsoft & PTC
Hololens: practical examples of  “every day” transformation

Microsoft’s Chris Hardess and PTC’s Paul Haimes will update you on how organisations are leveraging HoloLens and vast amounts of IoT data to create significant gains for simulations, testing, design maintenance, operations and training scenarios. You will also be introduced to one of Microsoft’s partners, PTC, who are empowering the use of HoloLens with their Vuforia Augmented Reality Software.

Ocean Optics
Improving manufacturing outcomes with spectroscopy

Ocean Optics’ Henry Langston will discuss case studies of how spectroscopy technologies, a form of optical sensing, can improve manufacturing outcomes.

Sensor City
The development of sensor technology

Alison Mitchell, executive director at Sensor City, will talk about how SMEs can use the Internet of Things (IoT) for business growth, and the importance of preparing for Industry 4.0.

Innovative Sensor Technology
Platinum temperature sensors for space applications

IST AG is the only approved supplier of ESA-qualified thin film platinum temperature sensors for space applications. Dr. Jiri Polak, chief sales officer at IST AG, will discuss European Space Agency (ESA) space sensors, the development process and an overview of the ESA qualification. 

Analog Devices
Solving the EMC design challenge

Today’s measurement and control systems vary in complexity, functionality and power requirements but all have at least one common requirement when sold into the wider market: Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC). EMC requirements are becoming increasingly restrictive to product development, and in this presentation Analog Devices’ Paul Worthington will explain the noise emissions in the power architecture of control and measurement systems, how to reduce these emissions and why these EMC Standards exist.

Siemens GB&I
Data challenges and opportunities in the process industries

Quickly evolving markets and trends. High levels of competition. Innovative and disruptive technologies. Increased levels of manufacturing data. Digitalisation is changing our world, and data now becomes crucial to a plant and this is represented in the form of the ‘digital twin’. Siemens GB&I business manager for Process Control Solutions, Steve Leech, will explore the challenges and opportunities that data can bring.

Myriad Group
Fast track connected product development

Myriad Group’s Neil Hamilton returns to provide real world insight into what is driving companies to connect their products to IoT platforms and how companies are doing this the smart way, based on the mistakes learned by the early pioneers.

High temperature condition monitoring with a novel, flexible, thin film sensor

Daniel Irvine, Novosound, will present work that demonstrates fit and forget sensors, which have consistent output at elevated temperatures and are durable enough to withstand the industrial environment.

The Defence and Security Accelerator

Innovation partner at DASA Andrew Peaty will give an overview of the Defence and Security Accelerator, including how people from industry and academia can get involved.
