MindSphere – the cloud-based, open IoT operating system: rigorous expansion with new partners and further solutions

Siemens is presenting its continuously enhanced Digital Enterprise portfolio for Industrie 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution. “We created the technical prerequisites for this transformation with our range of consistent solutions. By implementing Digital Enterprise solutions, users and customers can now tap into the full potential of Industrie 4.0,” said Klaus Helmrich, member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, at the press conference for Hannover Messe on April 23. On 3,500 square meters of exhibition space in Hall 9 at Booth D35, Siemens is using the motto “Digital Enterprise – Implement now!” to show how companies of any size can use the Digital Enterprise portfolio in various industries to secure real competitive advantages. “With our Digital Enterprise offerings, our customers are already achieving greater flexibility, shorter times to market, higher efficiency and better quality – and they’re accomplishing this during ongoing operations. Our customers are thus attesting to the benefits and added value that the Siemens Digital Enterprise offers for the discrete manufacturing and process industries,” said Helmrich.

The focus here is on the further expanded range of offerings for the Digital Enterprise – with solutions featuring greater flexibility for design, manufacturing processes and structures. This includes solutions for digital twins, which are being used today to create a holistic virtual model of the value chain, along with Siemens’ world-leading automation portfolio, as well as the open, cloud-based IoT operating system MindSphere. Connecting to MindSphere is one of the foundational aspects of new, data-driven business models for customers. “By founding MindSphere World, we’ve taken another step toward further expanding the ecosystem around MindSphere together with our customers and partners. For our customers, our MindSphere IoT operating system provides access to new dimensions of connectivity and data analysis. In addition, I’m very pleased that the Management Board of MindSphere World has now already approved the applications of 16 new candidates seeking to join the association,” said Helmrich.

For the development of cloud applications, Siemens is also blazing new trails at Hannover Messe, where – together with customers and partners – the company is using the MindSphere Lounge at its booth to present the latest developments and applications for MindSphere 3.0. In addition, as part of the MindSphere Open Space Challenge, external developers and startups are collaborating openly to craft creative approaches for new customer solutions and business models based on MindSphere.

At Hannover Messe, Siemens is also presenting the future-oriented expansion of data-driven applications – for example with the Siemens Industrial Edge concept, an offering for edge computing that enables users to take advantage of extended functionality and greater performance on site, combined with full control over data. In the area of additive manufacturing, Siemens offers a seamlessly integrated portfolio as well as a virtual market place – the Siemens Additive Manufacturing Network. Here, different players – including suppliers as well as current and potential users of 3D printing solutions – can forge and finalize business relationships.

In the age of digitalization, ensuring an appropriate level of cybersecurity is a prerequisite for protecting sensitive data. When it comes to cybersecurity for industrial applications and infrastructures, Siemens is continuing to drive advances, and – on the basis of the “defense in depth” concept – the company is making a broad portfolio of products and services available to the industrial sector. This portfolio includes plant and network security as well as system integrity.

At Hannover Messe 2018, Siemens is using the automotive industry as an example that illustrates how both flexibility in design and efficiency in vehicle manufacturing can profit from digitalization. The Digital Enterprise portfolio offers the levers needed to gain these benefits. This includes such aspects as full integration of the individual stages of production and the establishment of a uniform basis for the data – from car design to production planning and all the way to the actual manufacturing of the car and the provision of follow-up services. This applies both to the construction of new production plants and to the upgrading of existing factories – particularly when it comes to expanding the portfolio to include electric and hybrid vehicles.

The digital transformation of the processing industry is already in full swing. For this task, Siemens offers the required portfolio of solutions with integrated hardware and software and thus enables companies of any size to implement digitalization. At the Siemens booth, tradeshow visitors can experience how the customer Dulux is already using Siemens’ portfolio of digital solutions successfully at the first digital paint factory. A virtual model of the real plant – a so-called “digital twin” – provides plant operators like Dulux with enough flexibility to react quickly to rapidly changing market requirements, for instance by producing paint in trendy seasonal colors or in smaller batches.

The aerospace industry is considered highly advanced when it comes to the digital transformation. The strong demand for its products can only be met through clear increases in productivity enabled by a higher level of automation combined with end-to-end integration of digital tools and workflows. With Siemens’ Digital Enterprise portfolio, small and medium size businesses, as well as large enterprises, can already achieve these enhancements today to ensure international competitiveness. Greater flexibility makes it possible to manufacture the increasingly diverse model variants efficiently, even when they are produced in smaller quantities. At Hannover Messe 2018, Siemens is using concrete examples to demonstrate these capabilities.

Organised by Fira de Barcelona in collaboration with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), IoTSWC has registered a new growth in the number of participating companies, from 240 in 2017 to 341 in 2018, and expects 14,000 attendees from 114 countries. An evolution in line with the widespread deployment of IoT in various industries due to the potential for improvement in efficiency, automation and results.

Therefore, the director the IoTSWC, Roger Bou, is convinced that the 2018 edition will prove that this technology is here to stay, with its rapidly growing presence in industry: “We can see that no longer is IoT a technological revolution waiting just over the horizon; it is a reality that is being implemented ever more often and has an enormous potential to transform all types of businesses and our day-to-day lives”.

In fact, the Gartner consulting firm has predicted there will be 11.2 billion connected things in the world by the end of 2018 –4.159 billion in industry and specific industries alone. In other words, an upsurge of 32% in these areas with respect to 2017. On the other hand, experts also predict 2018 to be the year in which IoT makes a real impact in the market, spurring new business and service models.

New applications and testbeds

The exhibition area will bring together the leading companies in areas such as information technology, software platform developers, hardware manufacturers, security companies, telecommunications and service operators, or industrial automation firms that will show attendees their latest solutions and applications. The following, among others will be among the 341 companies attending: ABB, Cryptoquantique, Dassault Systems, Deloitte, Fiware, Google Cloud, Hitachi, Huawei, Intel, Kaspersky, Libelium, Microsoft, PTC, Relayr, Rigado, SAS, Software AG, Telefonica, Telit, Thinstream, Uptake, Verizon, Vodafone and Wipro.

Among the new applications, the connected winery developed by Vodafone and Bodegas Emilio Moro stands out which, through a Narrowband IoT platform,sensors in the field, Big Data and satellite technology allow to maximise the performance of the winery and minimise the environmental impact of wine production. In addition, the event will have an area dedicated to testbeds, where live demonstrations of innovative industrial internet applications will be carried out. In total 10 examples will be given, among them an intelligent platform to control water quality in Alaska and save beluga whales; an intelligent entrance gate that can be opened when the owner arrives or transform his/her garage into a giant mailbox for the delivery of online purchases; a 3D printing solution to analyse the client’s foot in real time and design and produce custom-made shoes within a couple of hours; and a fully connected and sensorized fire truck.

The 2018 IoTSWC will also be paying tribute to the year’s most ground-breaking and influential projects with their IoT Solutions Awards, which are open to companies and entities all over the world.

Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and more

On its side, the Conference will bring together the best global experts in IoT technology and representatives of various industrial industries to address the impact of IoT solutions in different environments. Nine core themes have been established for the 2018 edition, as touchstones for the more than 204 scheduled seminars: connected transport, product manufacturing, healthcare, energy and utilities, construction and infrastructure, open industry, enabling technologies, blockchain and artificial intelligence, with these last two having their very own forums.

The following stand out among the 316 speakers: Jonathan Ballon, VP of Intel; Hajime Sugiyama, Overseas Strategic Planning at Mitsubishi Electric; Seb Chakraborty, CTO of British Gas; Alexander Botsor, innovation Project Manager of BMW; Tomi Teikko, Director of Empathic Building of Tieto; Fabian Simmer, Technology Officer at Seat; Cristopher Bailey, director of Innovation and Architecture at Matson; Francisco Torres, Production manager at Pernod Ricard; and John Denning, CTO of Universal Medical, among others.

The technological gender gap and how to overcome it will also be analysed at the congress. IoTSWC will address the leadership role of women in the IoT ecosystem in a session that will have six women leaders in industrial IoT: Jennifer Bennett, Technical Director, Office of the CTO of Google Cloud; Leila Dillon, VP of Global Marketing & NA Distribution at Big Belly; Helena Lisachuk, Director and IoT Global Leader at Deloitte; Beverly Rider, executive vice-president and commercial director of Hitachi; Eva Schönleitner, vice-president of digital societies at ABB; and Adriana Estévez, Executive Director of Transformation and Digital Innovation at Microsoft.

The content and scope of the event was defined in large part thanks to the involvement of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), a worldwide organization of over 250 companies and entities related to IoT whose aim is to collectively make strides in the industrial Internet. The executive director of IIC, Richard Soley, emphasizes the standard of the attendees and demonstrations of the live systems at the IoTSWC: “IoT Solutions World Congress remains the main industrial IoT event of the year. It gives attendees the chance to meet the leaders who have been working in the field of the IoT for some time; to listen to the experts, for specific companies and industries to share success stories, and also to provide the opportunity to see the benefits of the industrial internet in action with our focus on fully functional test benches”.

Barcelona Industry Week

The IoT Solutions World Congress forms part of Barcelona Industry Week, a brand which also encompasses two other trade shows, In(3D)ustry From Needs to Solutions, dedicated to additive manufacturing, and Healthio, specializing in health and healthcare technologies. All three events, which create synergies and provide a platform for commerce and knowledge in a wide range of industrial sectors, will take place from 16-18 October at Fira de Barcelona.

Many leadless packages cannot be inspected using AOI techniques, so Nexperia pioneered the development of the DFN2020 package with side-wettable flanks (SWF), enabling Automatic optical inspection (AOI) – a critical automotive industry requirement – to be employed. Packages with SWF are now a proven, accepted solution.

Comments Malte Struck, Nexperia’s product manager for small signal MOSFETs: “The DFN package with side-wettable flanks is gaining significant traction with automotive manufacturers as it saves space and can be automatically inspected. Our new 175 °C parts are being used in under-the-hood applications, especially near the engine or gearbox. The unique offering of an automotive-grade MOSFET that is both qualified to 175 °C and which incorporates side-wettable flanks makes the DFN2020 additionally suitable for a wide range of medium-power automotive applications.”

The new automotive-qualified parts extend Nexperia’s low and medium power MOSFET portfolio. Six 40 V and 60 V devices are available with the higher temperature rating and automotive approval, each with low RDS(on) of between 20 mΩ and 40 mΩ.

More information on the new DFN2020 MOSFETs (BUKxxx) including product specs and datasheets is available at https://efficiencywins.nexperia.com/efficient-products/DFN2020-Automotive-MOSFETs.html
