Photonics: key technology for smart factories
Lasers: efficient, sustainable and low-cost manufacturing
Lasers are one of the most widely used photonics tools. They are ideal for manufacturing strong lightweight constructions, such as wind turbine blades or crash-safe car chassis. But also the production of batteries, fuel cells and solar cells requires laser technology. And every semiconductor chip today is manufactured using optical lithography, a form of laser technology.

Photonic sensors – Key application areas
Photonics is a key enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT). For its implementation the IoT relies heavily on sensor technology. Sensors need to be small, robust and energy efficient to be embedded in machines, appliances, buildings and infrastructure and succesfully collect data over large periods of time.
Fibre optic sensors – manufactured using photonics technology – are not only more sensitive than existing electromagnetic sensors, but also faster operating, better able to withstand harsh conditions and immune to electromagnetic interference.

Virtual and Augmented Reality Today Are Like the Internet in ‘95
Some say virtual and augmented reality will be an integral part of our everyday lives within 10 years. But what does this market look like today? Is it hype or a business with real potential?
When clients and business partners ask me about the current state of the virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) markets, I usually draw the comparison with the Internet in 1995.
Back then – in the era of desktop computers and dial-in modems – it was hard to imagine where “this new Internet thing” would take us more than 20 years later. Check out this epic TV interview from ‘95, in which Bill Gates tries to explain the benefits of the Internet and everyone just laughs.

Advancing OT Brownfield Cybersecurity – Presented by Andrea Carcano, Nozomi Networks, at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, which will take place on November 8, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Industrial Control Systems (ICS) have become increasingly connected to enterprise IoT directives and placed under IT oversight. While industrial applications and sensors have historically remained secure due to their relative isolation from enterprise IT, this is no longer the case. Cybersecurity stakeholders are realizing that the conventional IT security practices of network segmentation, firewalls and SIEMs must be supplemented with technologies that bring real-time visibility and threat analysis to OT segments. In this session, we will cover how certain non-intrusive ICS technologies are bringing scalable visibility into distributed ICS networks and bridging the integration gap that exists between the IT / OT divide. We will examine real uses-case scenarios that illustrate the tactical implementation and benefit of cutting-edge ICS cybersecurity technologies within existing brownfield ICS / IT applications.

Virtual-Augmented reality in Industry 4.0: Hype or serious business? – Presented by Coen Sanderink, Brabant Development Agency at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, which will take place on November 8, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
The last two years the Brabant Development Agency did a survey of the Virtual- and Augmented reality market. We wanted to know how this technology could influence the manufacturing and startup business of the future. Do you have to take it serious of is it just a hype? That question will be answered. Continue reading “Virtual-Augmented reality in Industry 4.0: Hype or serious business? – Presented by Coen Sanderink, Brabant Development Agency”
Watify is looking for innovative SMEs to showcase their technological transformation
WATIFY Solution Award – Could you be the 2017 winner?
The first edition of the WATIFY Solution Award will take place this year on 15-16 November in Copenhagen, Denmark, as part of the Global Finals of the Creative Business Cup 2017. The Award is looking to recognise the next innovative SME that has technological transformation at the core of its successful business.

Fibre Optic Sensing as a Base of Asset Management – Presented by Cordova Cordova, Yokogawa, at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, which will take place on November 8, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Fibre optic sensing solutions is one of the latest sensor technologies which is used not only in the automation and process industry but also infrastructure from civil, transport, and power. Its multiple sensing points capability in one single fibre optic—which is equal to multiple sensors—offer a cost effective solution in monitoring large equipment and wide area such as industrial plant, civil infrastructure, and environment. With the data available digitally, integration with any asset management system is achievable easily. Continue reading “Fibre Optic Sensing as a Base of Asset Management – Presented by C.
