IoT Bootcamp is a 2-day event with focus on Internet-of-Things (IoT) for Smart Cities in general, and a Connected Gothenburg in particular. The event will offer a mix of inspiring key note speeches as well as opportunities to try out ideas and concepts in the “Do Zone”.

We will also offer “Meet the Experts” sessions with Ericsson internal- as well as external parties in following areas:

  • Connectivity: Radio and antenna technology for 5G and IoT
  • Data Management: Development Platform, application development
  • Devices: IoT devices and sensors
  • Service Providers: Mobile operator and how to launch/scale IoT technology

In the “Do Zone“ at Ericsson premises at Lindholmen we will offer connectivity network (private LTE/Cat-M1/NB-IoT (Band 3 – 1800 MHz), Wifi, LoRa), we will have a handful of IoT devices for teams to use, and our Development Platform to handle devices, data streams, and applications. SIM cards for the devices will be available for the event.

Examples of IoT areas that could be explored for ideation and rapid prototyping:

  • Environment: Air, water, noise pollution, …
  • Autonomous transportations: drones, vehicles, …
  • Logistics: movement of people and goods, …
  • Urban farming
  • The safe city
  • Connected healthcare, …
  • Livability: Park maintenance, waste management, urban agriculture, …
  • Smart Buildings: Connected homes, offices, manufacturing plants, …

Bring your own device to test in an end to end environment or bring an idea to explore and prototype or simply just participate to get inspiration, knowledge and hopefully new contacts.
