IoT Technical Marketing in STMicroelectronics, Italy
ABSTRACT.The ballooning IoT phenomena today encompasses wide ranging application scenarios in many sectors, including Smart Home and Cities, Smart Things, Industry 4.0 and Smart Mobility. The key elements behind this growth story include the miniaturized and more intelligent sensing and processing hardware based on silicon technologies, several robust and reliable connectivity protocols, and highly refined signal conditioning and power and energy management.
Industry 4.0, also named Smart Industry, is a real revolution adding new scopes and goals to this segment: to produce more efficiently and environmentally friendly, to respond to flexibility and customization demands, to increase safer human experience and to efficient supply chain. Within this scenario the concept of Predictive Maintenance is a hot topic. This technology involves the diagnosis of key symptomatic indicators to allow advanced planning of costly machine care and maintenance, in order to reduce unnecessary or untimely downtime and avoid unrecoverable failures.
ST is well positioned to address these markets with state-of-the-art technologies and a wide range of products, thanks to its profound understanding of the building blocks associated with each of these ecosystems.
- Wired / Wireless Connectivity including Bluetooth w/o mesh topology
- MEMS Motion and Environment Sensor
- Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning
- …the building blocks of utility ecosystems
