Talk Description:

This talk would be about a project developed by a 9th standard student to help Covid 19. It is about a health-band alongwith an app named CoronaSecure. Without even presence of any healthcare worker or even a doctor we can easily find out the presence of COVID-19 in a body upon regular checkup from anywhere around the world. And at the same time its extremely cost effective which is under ₹500. The health band has Arduino Nano with MAX30100 sensor and Temperature sensor which can easily detect SpO2 (Oxygen level in blood) and Blood Pressure alongwith Temperature measurement. This data will then be sent to a registered hospital for a normal Quarantine Period of 14 days. Also our app will have a general survey which will have to be filled up by the patient regularly and if it isn’t filled up then by using AI an automated voice message will be called up to the patient’s mobile. Our device uses WiFi which becomes more reliable than Bluetooth.

Talk Description:

With my previous company’s acquisition at the lowest price, I learned it the hard way, the importance of assets in the business. These assets are not only critical for increasing the valuation, but they are also crucial from operating and scaling up perspective.

I have seen several entrepreneurs and startups, including my own, who work hard, struggle and toil to achieve their dreams, make significant sacrifices in the process, maybe survive several shocks of life, and in the end, it still doesn’t pay off well. Because we fail to understand – assets bring income and raise the value. During the talk, I will shed light on my findings of these crucial assets. I will take you through whys and hows of all the 15 assets. You will also learn some tips to accelerate the asset-creation process and make your IoT business achieve the next level.

I Will Cover:

1. How these assets add value to your business model and make it scalable 2. The 15 assets – discuss all these assets, why and how 3. The next steps you can take to get going

Talk Description:

They say Silence can talk a lot…… If you can hear it. Same applies to Machines too. Machines can talk and talk louder if we understand them. Machines do talk through PLCs / Controllers and Older machines talk older languages and modern machines talk modern languages eg. OPC UA. We call them Protocols. Various protocols have been used to transfer data from controllers. These vary from Modbus RTU, ASCII, MPI, PPI to OPC UA. To understand them we need to bring them all on one platform. And hence the use of Protocol Converters. In the IIoT field we need Protocol Converter for All in One. Further we need to have the converter do the EDGE Analytics and also send the data to Cloud in universal language. Let us know about this conversion.
