Distributed System Control: Choosing the Right Connectivity Path

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) landscape today is a confusing mix of proprietary connectivity technologies and standards. How can you choose the right path and apply these technologies to Robotics and Autonomy applications? To address this confusion, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) has released the Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework (IICF).

Join the experts from RTI and Energid to learn about choosing the right mix of proprietary connectivity technologies and standards for robotic applications.

The IICF is the only extensive connectivity analysis by multiple experts from various companies at a major consortium. It provides detailed, useful, tangible, and practical guidance for those building IIoT solutions today. Specifically, it defines a new framework layer as an essential element of the IIoT connectivity puzzle. The IICF includes a deep assessment template to evaluate any connectivity technology and place it correctly on the stack. It then catalogs common IIoT standards, evaluating them against the template, thus establishing a starting point for accelerating connectivity technology selection.

Participants will

  • Learn about the IIoT Guidance from the IIC and how you can apply the “layered databus” architecture to your robotics and autonomy applications.
  • Explore methods for developing scalable architecture and interfacing with existing systems, such as ROS (Robotic Operating System).
  • See a demo of RTI Connext DDS and a use case from Energrid on applying the layer databus to Robotics.

Who should attend

Developers and architects working on robotics and autonomous systems architectures and programs.
