Innovations of the embedded world 2016 Nuremberg

From February 23 - 25, 2016, embedded world took place for the 14th time at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center. It is the world's largest trade fair and leading international exhibition for embedded systems. Embedded systems are considered the backbone of the "Internet of Things" and "Industry 4.0"; they work in a networked and energy-efficient manner with the greatest possible security and reliability. The trade fair portfolio included components, modules, complete systems, operating systems and software as well as numerous innovations.

Core topic of safety & security is becoming increasingly important

New in 2016 is the safety & security area, which is dedicated to the security of embedded systems. This involves the operational security of hardware and software as well as protection against external attacks and piracy. The focus was also on the "Internet of Things" and the cloud. In addition to the special safety & security area, special areas were designated for M2M (machine to machine) and "Young Innovative Companies". The hot topic of safety & security was also a substantial item in the program of the embedded world conference 2016, which was part of the trade fair, with security expert Eugene Kaspersky giving the keynote speech.

Embedded systems are everywhere in modern everyday technology

Messe.TV was able to interview the event director Mr. Benedikt Weyerer about the development of embedded world in the hustle and bustle of the trade fair. He is pleased about the steady growth in the number of exhibitors and trade visitors. In principle, he sees embedded world as "the basis of modern daily technical life", the comprehensive function of which the end consumer is generally not even aware of. But from the coffee machine to the smartphone to the car - embedded systems are everywhere where technology is involved. For Industry 4.0, the "Internet of Things" is the big buzzword.

embedded world covers the entire spectrum of embedded systems

The trade fair stands reflected the topics of the future. IoT topics were very present, e-mobility and energy efficiency were on the agenda, innovations for almost all industrial sectors were represented - from telecommunications to vehicle and mechanical engineering. German supplier DATA MODUL presented innovations in the field of display solutions, while ISYSYSTEM, a manufacturer of development and testing tools for embedded software development, used a blue box to showcase specified solutions for system security. MENTOR GRAPHICS presented an industrial IoT gateway with temperature sensor, connected to an NXO K70 running the Nucleus real-time operating system (RTOS). MicroSys' portfolio ranges from 'System on Module' and single-board computers to fully certified complete systems, while Schleissheimer offers software and hardware solutions as a partner to the automotive industry, but is also active in the field of industrial machinery. Monibot takes care of simple server and application monitoring. The range of products on show at embedded world is huge. It covers the entire spectrum of embedded systems.
