Embedded World Panel Sessions Announced

December 17, 2019 Rich Nass

Be it security for electronic systems, distributed intelligence, the Internet of Things or e-mobility and energy efficiency – the embedded world trade fair in Nuremberg enables you to experience the whole world of embedded systems.

Embedded Computing Design (hall 5-341) will be hosting daily educational tracks on the hottest topics affecting today’s engineers. Engineers can visit the booth each day to listen and learn from the leaders in the embedded space. You can also register online early for your chance to win a Dev Kit from Digi-Key.

Panel Titles/Abstracts:

Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML)

Machine learning is the subset of artificial intelligence that generally apples to industrial applications. It lets the machines/equipment make decisions at the Edge, based on data that’s gathered at the Edge. In this Panel Session, we’ll look at the current trends in AI/ML.


Autonomous drive is here, in various forms, including, cars, trucks, and other forms of transportation or delivery. This panel will look at the current state of the art, and what’s needed to reach the goal of full autonomous drive.

Predictive Maintenance Using the IIoT

Industrial systems, manufacturing equipment, robotics, etc., need to be maintained. There’s no getting around that. Doing it on your own schedule, rather than at the most inopportune time can lead to costly delays. This panel will look at what’s need to implement predictive maintenance.

Designing for Industrial Applications

In many settings, industrial equipment needs to run 24/7/365. That’s different from many other applications, where a little down time is no big deal. This panel will look at what’s needed to ensure that your equipment runs non-stop.


The hackers are out there, and they are not going away. Combine that with most experts’ belief that it’s not possible to build an unhackable system. But you need to be good enough. This panel will explore what “good enough” means, and how you get there.

Panel Sessions (45 minutes) include one moderator from the Embedded Computing Design Editorial Team, and up to four panelists.

  • Panelists will be asked to submit a bio, a photo, and two questions for the panel, due by February 3,2020.
  • All questions will be sent to panelists at least one week prior to Embedded World.
  • Panelists are not required to submit any slides.
  • Discussions cannot be promotional.
  • Panelists must arrive at the Embedded Computing Design booth at least fifteen minutes prior to the panel.
