SmartEEs Matchmaking: Logistics & Packaging

7 May 2021 @ 09:00 13:00 CEST

Logistics and packaging are an integral part of the global economy, something we’ve all realized even more so as during the Corona Crisis. Adding flexible and wearable technologies to the mix presents myriad possibilities for reimagining age-old issues

Packages need to be tracked, but so do items in warehousesPrinted electronics and flexible sensors offer new opportunities for discreet and cheaper tracking and inventory solutions. Printed inks can be integrated into packaging for perishable goods, handy for the consumer but also valuable for producers, wholesalers, and distributors.

Entire supply chains depend on efficient and effective logistics and packaging, and the possibilities for integration of flexible and wearable electronics are, quite literally, endless.

COOCK Open City Workshop: Learnings from international and local smart city initiatives

27 April 2021 @ 10:00 12:00 CEST

An open city allows urban challenges to be tackled using data. On the one hand, data must be shared in a uniform and scalable manner so that it forms the foundation for building specific views for a particular domain. On the other hand, the data (especially in the case of sensors as a data source) must be of sufficiently high quality so that true visualization models can be built. All these aspects are dealt with in a bottom-up, three-part COOCK workshop.

This workshop (part three) is built up as follows:
• We start with an overview of state-of-the-art data platforms and which interoperability principles are followed.
• Next, the learnings of rolling out a network of air quality sensors in the Smart Zone in Antwerp will be explained.
• Finally, the processes, tooling and used semantic standards of the City of Things projects Databroker, MoDi and ANPR are explained.

The contact person for this workshop is Katelijne Vervaet (imec).

Agenda

10.00 – 10.05 Intro by IMEC-EDIT, Stefan Lefever
10.05 – 10.45 How is the international ecosystem evolving? by IMEC-EDIT, Stefan Lefever
10.45 – 11.05 Learnings from the Antwerp smart zone by IMEC-NL, Valerio Panzica La Manna
11.05 – 11.30 Learnings from VLAIO City Of Things support (Databroker, MoDi and ANPR) by IMEC-IDLab Ghent, Brecht Van de Vyvere
11:30 – 11:45 Wrap-up and Q&A

COOCK Workshop: IoT & Air Quality in Cities: Air Quality Modeling

23 March 2021 @ 10:00 12:00 CET

Over the past years, interest in air quality has increased resulting in many smart city solutions. This workshop will present an overview of air quality modelling for smart city applications, including refining air pollution maps by incorporating data from emerging sensor networks. Besides improving the real-time information, models can be applied to predict future air quality, predict scenarios, and determine sources of air pollution, linking to smart ventilation in smart buildings.

The contact person for this workshop is Stijn Vranckx (VITO).

Agenda

10.00 – 10.15 Introduction: Air Quality Modelling and Smart city applications
10.15 – 11.00 Improved air quality information through coupling of sensors and models
11.00 – 11.20 Modelling the indoor & outdoor environment of smart buildings
11.20 – 11.40 Identification of air pollution sources and screening of air quality solutions
11.40 – 12.00 Q&A

Automotive Edition

The combination of flexible electronics and automotive has a bright future, with OLED lighting illuminating the path to come.

Whether it is sensors, OLED displays and lighting, heaters or other applications, there are plenty of opportunities for flexible electronics to be integrated into automotive applications. Some of these technologies have already been on the market for a few years, e.g. OLED lighting appearing in rear taillights, while recent developments in flexible and printed electronics can supply new, exciting functionalities. The current trends of sustainable transportation and self-driving vehicles open a lot more opportunities for flexible electronics to be utilized. Market analysts predicted the market size for flexible electronics in automotive will exceed $5.5 billion by 2026.

Whether we’re discussing integrating flexible electronics into automotive parts, or matching flexible electronic technology to digital applications in the automotive sector, there are many ways the two sectors offer each other fruitful collaboration.

COOCK Open City Workshop: Open City and Its Citizens

9 February 2021 @ 13:00 15:00 CET

This webinar is organized in the context of the Coock ‘Open City’ Project and deals with the topic of involving citizens in an open city. Not only can citizens provide local governments with necessary data to tackle certain challenges through citizen science projects, the government from its side can open up its data for re-use to develop certain solutions by its citizens. This raises certain questions: How can citizens be engaged in citizen science projects? How can collected data be made available towards citizens and companies? How can data then be re-used by citizens and companies? During this webinar we will answer these questions.

Agenda

13:00 – 13:15 Intro by imec-SMIT, Koen Borghys

13:15 – 13:50 How to engage citizens: communication strategies for citizen science, by​ imec-SMIT, Carina Veeckman​
