Title: Mixing IoT technologies for better performances.

Abstract: Internet of Things is developing very fast to provide solutions to resolve problems in many verticals of our life: Health and wellbeing, smart building, smart cities, security, automation, smart industry… Those verticals are working under different constraints where finding a common denominator is completely impossible. Hence, technologies to offer connectivity to things couldn’t satisfy all the constraints and should focus on specific problem.

Constraints of the IoT verticals are the resources that we should save because they represent the weakness of the things that we try to make smart. For example, a sensor that we introduce in the human body should have a permanent energy source (a battery coin that should work for at least 20 years); while a video surveillance camera is connected to a power supply and need high bandwidth network.

From the other side, technologies offer solutions for IoT that optimize dedicated vertical resources. There is no existing technology that could optimize at the same time the energy, the bandwidth, the security, the localization, and the cost.

The objective of the Panel is to debate around the Intelligence we need to provide to IoT solutions in order to switch between technologies while optimizing resources.
