Exploring the Digital Twin concept for use in civil infrastructure – Presented by Joep Paulissen, TNO, at Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, on January 18, 2019, at Rotterdam AHOY, The Netherlands.
In 2018 the TNO Unit Building, Infrastructure and Maritime initiated research activities into the use of the Digital Twin concept for civil infrastructure. With the aim of ‘Learning by Doing’ we selected a relevant case study within our context of assessing the reliability of bridge structures.
By connecting TNO knowledge on relevant IT techniques with our domain knowledge on steel bridges we created first relatively simple digital twin of a steel bridge deck susceptible to fatigue cracking.

From Intelligent (IoT) Sensor to Plant Reliability – Presented by Martin Blenkers, IJssel Technologie, at Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, on January 18, 2019, at Rotterdam AHOY, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
The way in which innovation, intelligence and plant awareness are at the center of reliability.
What drives you?
Our mission is simple, to provide a cost-effective means of managing all the key reliability elements without compromise on quality, plant awareness or integration. It’s mind blowing what you could do when you start to integrate reliability technologies like vibration, oil sensors, IR etc… with process related data.

Soft industrial robots – Presented by Dr.-Ing. Martin Manns, Universität Siegen, FAMS – Chair for Manufacturing Automation and Assembly at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, special edition, 23 May 2017, Messe Düsseldorf Congress Center, Düsseldorf , Germany.
Industrial robots are finding entrance to new fields of manufacturing and assembly applications because their cost is decreasing. At the same time, uncertain market demands make unpredictable and rapid changes in product design more likely. This risk limits robotic applications in assembly settings because gripper design for material handling depends on pre-known part geometry and additional grippers are costly. In the presentation, different approaches to more flexible grippers made from soft materials using additive manufacturing technologies are presented. Benefits and limitations of different forms of grippers are discussed and an outlook towards potential applications in production automation is given.

Katarzyna Ławniczuk, JePPIX, Will Be Keynote Speaker at Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference. She will speak about “Application Specific Photonic Integrated Circuits”
Photonic integrated circuits offer radical miniaturization, cost reduction and performance enhancement in sectors ranging from fiber optical communications and antenna systems through to metrology and sensing. The implementation of a pioneering generic technology in photonics now allows shared development costs across many sectors and accelerates the design cycle. The use of fewer photonic chips inherently simplifies assembly. In integrated form, photonic chips become compatible with MEMS, integrated electronics and a range of micro-optical systems, creating a roadmap for further smart systems integration.
