The Workshop aims to discuss the contributions of both the metrology for the development of Industry 4.0 and IoT and the new opportunities offered by Industry 4.0 and IoT for the development of new measurement methods and apparatus. Attention is paid, but not limited to, new technology for metrology-assisted production in Industry 4.0 and IoT, Industry 4.0 and IoT component measurement, sensors and associated signal conditioning for Industry 4.0 and IoT, and calibration methods for electronic test and measurement for Industry 4.0 and IoT.
Hackathon contests have been held in recent years with great success, prompting youngsters to put all of their knowledge, combined with creativity, to respond to the market challenges and needs.
The MetroInd4.0&IoT 2019 IEEE Student Hackathon aims to encourage the birth of new ideas and solutions for Industry and IoT fitting with the workshop topics. The Hackathon is open to all IEEE Student Members, that are invited to form teams from 3 to 5 people to address challenges that will be launched during the event. Teams will work with hardware and software tools, provided by technological partners, with the goal of transforming their innovative ideas into reality and of creating a working product by the end of the event.
