Sensors Midwest (#SensorsMW18), the event for sensors design and industrial IoT, and sister to show Sensors Expo & Conference, announces their partnership with Fraunhofer USA Center for Experimental Software Engineering CESE and Sonoma State University, CA to conduct an IoT Enabled Industrial IoT Certification Program. Taking place on October 17, 2018 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, this partnership will host a Workshop designed to inform and guide the top decision makers and executives on how to prepare their organizations for the Industry 4.0 trend and create higher value to customers.

This workshop aims to help attendees understand and respond to the Industry 4.0 trend through lectures, discussions, factory use cases, and industry 4.0 technology demonstration. It begins with a broad overview of Industry 4.0 concepts, targeting manufacturing executives and decisions makers who want to understand what industry 4.0 is and how they can get their organizations ready for it. Following the introduction, follow-on workshop modules take a deeper dive into industry 4.0 details, addressing the needs of production and technical managers. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a strong understanding of Industry 4.0 and how it can be used to solve business problems and deliver higher value to customers.

“I am very excited and honored to Chair the Workshop,” said Shivakumar Mathapathi, Adjunct Professor, and International Co-coordinator - Sonoma State University. “The IIoT Workshop is designed to help startups, mid-size, and large companies to come together and build world-class industrial IoT solutions. We are very fortunate to work with Fraunhofer CESE to bring few real-time Industrial IoT use cases,” added Professor Mathapathi.

“This is a unique experience to work with Sensors Midwest delegates, to share Industrial IoT research, connecting machines with real-time sensor data, making machinery more intelligent to deliver efficient and optimum results,” said Dr. Pankesh Patel, Senior Research Scientist, Fraunhofer CESE.

“I am very happy to be associated with Sensors Midwest and Fraunhofer to lead the workshop in evaluating the process,” expressed Dr. Farid Farahmand, Chair, Department of Engineering Science, Sonoma State University.
