The IoT Online Conference has two parts a virtual show floor and online presentations. The virtual show floor is available 24/7 throughout the event with leading companies from the world of IoT. The online talks on December 8th and 9th all have live question and answer sessions when visitors can engage with the experts. For full event information and registration Click here

The booming IoT industry presents a wide range of challenges, from 5G and edge processing to machine learning and AI, as well as big data, the enterprise and security. Finding elusive software bugs, tweaking algorithms that do not perform as well as intended, and solving user-interface issues are all hurdles to overcome.

“Encouraged by the resoundingly positive response to our Embedded Online Conference with more than 6,000 attendees earlier this year, we now replicate this successful format to bring together the leading experts in IoT technologies,” says co-organiser Stephane Boucher. “Over the two days of the event, participants have access to 30 hours of high-quality technical sessions followed by live Q&As all from the comfort and safety of their homes and offices.”

With a keynote from Reinhard Keil, senior director of Embedded Tools at ARM, in which he argues for an open approach to low-power IoT development, the conference programme includes sessions on IoT system security challenges by Professor Dr. Subramaniam Ganesan, best practices for IoT edge device design by organiser Jacob Beningo, and lessons on using Bluetooth Low Energy in wearable projects by senior Google software engineer Jacky Cheung.

Johan Kraft, CEO and founder of gold sponsor Percepio, presents on visual trace diagnostics and continuous software improvement. Percepio will also share two short videos on the virtual show floor to introduce the latest version of Tracealyzer and the new DevAlert IoT device monitoring and remote diagnostics solution, which is used in system testing, field testing and deployment. DevAlert notifies developers about important conditions in IoT software, such as runtime errors, and provides a recording for visual trace diagnostics. Once an improved solution is ready, it can be dispatched as an over-the-air update via AWS IoT Core.

Free tickets to the IoT Online Conference allow attendees to walk the virtual exhibit floor and watch sponsored talks. For the full benefits and ability to watch all presentations, participants need to buy a conference pass. Register here and use the code PERCEPIO to receive a US$100 (€82.31) discount. Pass holders may also watch presentations on demand up to a year after the conference.
