Business Disruptions from IoT Driving Growth from Robots, Drones & Bots
Internet of Things is going past smart devices to intelligent machines that are applying learning algorithms to vast volumes of IoT data. Robots can be self-driving cars and tractors or become tiny nanobots that swarm our bodies to cure diseases. Drones swim with Dolphins or look for oil pipe leaks saving scuba drivers. Bots are replacing repetitive human tasks such as scheduling, shopping and robo-trading. Welcome to the world of Robots, Drones and Bots.

Come hear about the next wave of IoT Disruptions and how this is leading to growth in Robots, Drones and Bot to a new world of business opportunities to the promised $16 Trillion from IoT.

Textile Electrodes – A New Paradigm!?
This presentation will give an overview about the new paradigm and advantages of electrodes. Textile electrodes play an important role within a variety of medical applications such as sensors and or actuators. Advantages of textile electrodes are its ductility, flexibility, conductivity, functionality for muscle and nerve stimulation as well as surveillance of body signals such as EMG and ECG. A vital part of textile electrodes are conductive yarns or fabrics integrated in the clothing directly, ensuring mobility. In this Keynote Sven will discuss why silver as a metal has great textile properties and as a fabric textile electrode, guarantees an ideal body fit.

Technical Embroidery - A Versatile Opportunity for Wearables
Embroidery is a textile manufacturing technique that has its roots in historic hand stitched garment design. However, with the invention of computers, this textile manufacturing technique has seen resurgence do to its high levels of material optimization. Embroidery allows the textile engineer to place a single fiber or yarn with high precision in a variable, predesigned geometry. Because of this high precision, embroidery is highly applicable for technical application such as textile sensors, actuators or electrodes. There are three types of embroidery technologies that are commonly used and defined in literature. These include chain and moss stitch embroidery; standard embroidery; and tailored fiber, wire or tube placement. Each of these methods can be utilized in varying ways in order to create highly customized Wearables. Melanie will show an overview of the technical embroidery techniques in her talk. She will also present a selection of application possibilities for each technology.
