Communication Technologies (NB-IoT, LTE-M, 5G, satellite, LoRa)

  • Marc Leminh (Kineis) - slides - While the IoT hype is everywhere, integrators and end-users are discovering that some use cases cannot be addressed with existing networking technologies. For example global logistics monitoring, smart agriculture in remote areas, some maritime applications, etc... As a matter of fact both existing wireless networks (4G and future 5G) and new LPWANs (Sigfox, Lora) cover less than 10% of the globe, leaving large areas without a good communication link. Satellite IoT has been created to bridge this gap and enable new applications though truly global IoT connectivity.


Objects: open source, prototyping and industrialization

  • Thibault Cantegrel (Sierra Wireless) - slides - Seminar on "connected Objects" with hands-on session


    • From ideas to prototypes to industrialized commercial product: why/what open source platform? (45 min)
    • Hands-on mangOH Yellow session (1 hour 15 min): learn how to quickly prototype and develop an IoT device-to-cloud application using multiple sensors

Connected Vehicles

  • Renaud Hanus, Romain Rivière (ACTIA) - “The transport industry faces multiple challenges, such as the demographic explosion, the sharp increase in goods-transportation, the need of mobility inside and outside the cities and the digital transformation of the faming world. The transport sector needs to reinvent itself into a smarter, greener, and safer industry.

    ACTIA Automotive designs, manufactures and operates connected and innovative systems that aim to solve these challenges regarding goods transport, urban/interurban mobility and agricultural automation.”

  • Laurent Pahun (Renault software lab) - slides -la voiture du futur, les technologies digitales appliquées aux voitures connectées et autonomes.
  • Olivier Flebus (continental)  - Construire et opérer des services (de mobilité) à partir de données issues de véhicules:
    •  Retour d’expérience de la création de Continental Digital Services France, 
    • Compétences, organisation et processus d’ingénierie (systèmes automobiles, services numériques dans le Cloud, Modèles d’IA/ML, Data Management) mis en place 
    • Défis d’une business unit avec une culture « Data-Driven »


Treatment / use of data

  • Fatma RAISSI and Mandimby Ranaivo Rakotondravelona (Akka Research) - slides - 5G-MOBIX, an H2020 project, aims to showcase the added value of 5G technology for advanced Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) use case categories and validate the viability of the technology to bring automated driving to the next level of vehicle automation (SAE L4 and above). To do this, 5G-MOBIX will demonstrate the potential of different 5G features on real European roads and highways and create and use sustainable business models to develop 5G corridors. 5G-MOBIX will upgrade existing key assets (network infrastructure, roadside and cloud infrastructure and vehicles) to realize improved performance of involved systems. 5G-MOBIX will then utilize and operate co-existence of 5G technologies within a heterogeneous environment comprised of multiple incumbent short-range communication technologies such as ITS-G5 and LTE-V2X and existing LTE networks.

     AKKA is a key partner in 5G-MOBIX contributing on an overall cybersecurity and data privacy approach, data management at the project level and 5G technologies integration in the French trial site.

    In this presentation, after a general introduction on 5G-MOBIX, we will talk about the work carried out by our team on ETSI Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) which is a technology allowing data processing close to the end users. It is enabled by Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Orchestration using Kubernetes.”

  • Didier Bosque and Paul Pidou (Sopra Steria)- slides -: Composed of 115 municipalities and more than one million inhabitants, the metropolitan area of Toulouse is a territory with a strong demographic and economic growth. In the large urban centre, the amount of daily journeys, all modes combined, will be of 4.5 million by 2025 that is to say 500 000 more than today. Improving the road infrastructure alone will not be enough to settle this growing mobility issue. The COMMUTE - Collaborative Mobility Management for Urban Traffic and Emissions reduction - project aims to solve this mobility issue by developing a collaborative management approach involving the main stakeholders in the area. As part of this initiative, Sopra Steria is developing a digital data platform in order to leverage mobility-related data generated within the area. This talk will focus on the treatment and use of the data that are done within and thanks to the digital platform of the COMMUTE project along with the possibilities that can be brought to this initiative by the IoT-generated data.
