FRUCT is the largest regional cooperation framework between academia and industry in form of open innovations. FRUCT conferences are attended by the representatives of 25 FRUCT member universities from Russia, Finland, Denmark, Italy, Ukraine, India, industrial experts from Qt community, EMC, EIT ICT Labs, Nokia Siemens Networks and a number of guests from other companies and universities.
In this work it was explained why the energy balancing in a static wireless sensor networks with autonomous energy sources is actual nowadays. We presented mathematical model of static wireless sensor network which considers external influence. We presented method of energy balancing in a static wireless sensor networks with autonomous energy sources and experimental results which show increasing work efficiency of static WSN with autonomous energy sources by increasing nodes lifetime and decreasing nodes energy consumption.
The article describes technological aspects of the human rights protection at the Internet, modern problems and trends, including Web 3.0 concept.
A fridge plays an important role in the kitchen in comparison to other appliances because it helps to store food products at optimal conditions for a long period of time. The ordinary refrigerators perfectly allow preserving meals but they are not effective in case of food management. Providing a remote control for home appliances extends the everyday usage of these devices. In addition to the remote control device, some manufacturers use additional modules such as internal cameras and hands-free speaker for convenient control of an appliance. All these devices are able to communicate with each other to reach common goals. The home appliance producer Liebherr in cooperation with technology company Microsoft developed a solution for remote control of refrigeration with possibility of food recognition using Machine Learning algorithms. This option enables automatic compiling of the list of food stored in the fridge and food ordering in an online shop without manual actions. This opportunity enables not only a convenient usage of an appliance but also allows reduction of electricity consumption because user does not open fridge doors frequently as far as he knows a list of food in refrigerator. In this paper we describe SmartDevice technology from Liebherr that was developed for adding smart features to the brand products. In particular, we review main business processes of SmartDevice, discuss advantages and disadvantages of this solution for the end customers and identify future research for creating smart fridges.
WF-IoT 2018, the 4th IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things, is the premier IEEE Forum for the Internet of Things. It is where conference attendees, from around the globe - including research institutes, academia, industry and the public sector -- share their knowledge, expertise and experiences about IoT technologies, applications, economic impacts, and social implications. The 2018 conference theme is Smart Cities & Nations, focusing on the vision of a highly connected society, where people and "things" can interact with each other, to provide new goods, services, infrastructure, and processes that improve the lives of citizens in Smart Cities. This pervasive integration enables intelligent systems, which in turn enriches and enhances the human experience within the emerging and increasingly ubiquitous digital ecosystems. WF-IoT 2018 presents innovations that will influence research and real-world applications for the foreseeable future and transform our world in ways we have yet to imagine. In February 2018, IoT industry leaders, practitioners, researchers, government officials and students are meeting at WF-IoT 2018 in Singapore to foster an exchange of knowledge, to network with innovators, to develop careers, and promote entrepreneurship around the explosive growth and investment in IoT technologies and application areas. The Conference is also designed to be highly interactive and a call to action so that activities during the coming year bring us to WF-IoT 2019 with a sense of progress and accomplishment. Each IEEE World Forum on IoT is, by design, held in a different geographical area. To conduct the most meaningful dialog, the conference strives to bring in attendance, talent, experts, and experience with IoT from around the world. At the same time, each of the World Forums focus on regional and local conditions and pick topics that are important to the region and cross-cutting subjects that are important to IoT and crucial for nurturing and developing the global ecosystem that feeds the virtuous cycle of growth and value to humanity. This year, an aspect of the World Forum is to concentrate on a limited number of Vertical areas that are significant to Asia, the Pacific Region and Singapore. The Verticals represent projects and markets where IoT is seeing significant deployment. The other dimension for the conference is the Topical aspect of IoT addressing technologies, policies, and practices for exploiting opportunities or overcoming barriers for adoption of IoT.
