Trend Spotting Ahead of Embedded World 2019

18 February 2019

Every year, thousands of developers, researchers and decision makers flock to the heart of Europe to network, learn, and get inspired by the latest trends and product developments in the world of embedded systems. With an exclusive focus on embedded technologies, the Embedded World fair in Nuremberg offers a comprehensive reflection of the trends we can expect to see play out in the fast evolving future of IoT.

Imagimob will be among those in attendance at Embedded World this year. Besides attending meetings with partners and customers, we’ll also have our eye on a number of key players and trends that show promise of driving vital change for our industry in 2019 and beyond.

The by far biggest trend is the impactful move of computing from the cloud to the edge. With that, comes a greater demand for Edge AI, powerful microprocessors, ultra low-power hardware and new efficient communication systems like LPWAN and 5G.

Two Embedded World keynotes we’re looking forward to this year, which will really dig into the heart of this trend, will be given by Jim Tung from MathWorks, and Jean-Marc Chery from STMicroelectronics International NV. Here’s a preview.

Developing Game-Changing Embedded Intelligence
In this keynote, Jim Tung will look at the promising opportunities and practical challenges of building AI into our systems and services. To get there, he says that teams that combine specialized knowledge, domain expertise, and business objectives must navigate through numerous choices — algorithms, processors, resource location, architectural allocation, communications, and more. All while keeping their eye on the application that will create game-changing value for their organization.

Embedded Intelligence for the Next Wave of Smart Systems – Opportunities and Challenges on the Edge
The way data is collected, processed and shared across smart systems — from the edge device and edge servers to the Cloud—is an evolving topic which creates both opportunities and challenges for smart system designers. This keynote by STMicroelectronics CEO Jean-Marc Chery will look at some of the different approaches to distributing processing across a system, and the role AI can play down to the smallest smart system nodes.
