Talk Title: Taking the Internet of Things out of the Lab and into Industry 4.0
Series: Cyber-Physical Systems Joint Seminar Series
Abstract: This talk presents the author's experiences of commercializing academic Internet of Things (IoT) research. It will begin with an overview of recent IoT research conducted by the DistriNet research group of KU Leuven and the reason we took the plunge to incorporate an IoT spin-off company -” VersaSense. The presentation will then discuss our experiences -” good and bad -” of deploying contemporary IoT technologies in industrial scenarios, with a focus on the gap that exists between contemporary academic research and the industrial IoT. The talk will be illustrated with a number of demonstrations and examples drawn from running real-world systems.
