Tech afternoon - IoT, Mikael Falkvidd, Independent IoT consultant

The challenge is no longer technology or economy- it´s for us to imagine useful scenarios
Everything that can be connected will be connected and Gartner predicts that 2020 we will have 20 Billion connected devices, others say 50. We need to learn and explore the future business value.

Mikael has a MsC in computer communications. He has experience from Ericsson and OP5 but has also been a freelancer writer for a Swedish computer magazine where he had to stay relevant and learn about the latest and most exciting technologies.

  1. 1. IoT Mikael Falkvidd FASTER FORWARD 2018-03-13
  2. 2. About Mikael Falkvidd • IoT consultant, Falkvidd Holding AB and DigiNav AB • Past positions • Development Team Lead, OP5 • IT Consultant, Accenture • Product Owner, Ericsson • Solution Architect, Ericsson Core team member 80+ published articles in Board member https://www.linkedin.com/in/mikaelfalkvidd https://twitter.com/mfalkvidd / @mfalkvidd Today’s hashtag: #Fasterforward
  3. 3. Agenda • What is IoT and why is it useful? • No I without connectivity • No T without devices • No win without business
  4. 4. What is IoT (Internet of Things)? • Physical devices • Connected
  5. 5. Why IoT? • Connect the digital and physical world • Collect data cheaply • Asset tracking: where is my goods/equipment/tool/machine • Environmental information: temperature, CO2, pH, particles • Resources: battery level, tank level • Usage: water, fuel, electricity • Better decision making • New business models
  6. 6. IoT connectivity – cellular/mobile (2G/3G/4G) • Used to cost about 1 EUR/month if you buy really large volumes (>100,000). Roaming expensive. • Today: as low as 10 EUR for 10 years (0.5GB data maximum). Roaming in EU+Norway+Switzerland included. • Still draws a lot of power though (~6 months battery life). NB-IoT and LTE-M promises to take care of this, but is not yet available. • Focused on connecting humans
  7. 7. IoT connectivity – LPWAN • New take on old technology. • 5-10 years battery life • Commercial networks, build your own or hybrid. • Focused on connecting things • Low total cost • No need to connect power or replace batteries frequently • ~10 EUR per year connectivity cost • Low cost devices
  8. 8. LPWAN example: Sigfox • Rollout in Sweden started July 2017 • 60% population coverage by end of 2017 • Expansion continues during 2018 • Global network: Currently 45 countries, 60 planned by end of 2018
  9. 9. Telia cellular Sigfox LPWAN
  10. 10. Hybrid network • Make sure your customer’s goods have connectivity during the entire journey • No need to get a mobile operator license • A global leader within container shipping and who operates in more than 100 countries, is working with Sigfox to provide coverage on board their vessels
  11. 11. IoT devices • Cheap • Lots of different sensors • Battery-powered • Easy installation
  12. 12. Device example 1
  13. 13. Device example 2
  14. 14. Device example 3
  15. 15. Tallink Spa & Conference Hotel - measuring water and air quality • Analyze real-time data • Detect problems before they even occur • Prevent downtime • Develop new opportunities
  16. 16. Sensolus offers an end-to-end tracking solution. It notifies Airbus about its assets’ trips and give insights on supply chain optimization. The device embeds an internal memory to record data when outside of coverage. Problem solved Track spare parts between the headquarters and the sites of its suppliers BenefitsSolution  Cross country tracking without high roaming fees  Real-time visibility on the asset during transportation  Automation of the supply chain Industrial asset management GPS + BLE tracker for indoor and outdoor geolocation LIVE
  17. 17. Business example
  18. 18. Find business opportunities • IoT won’t add value by itself • People who understand the business are best equipped to come up with new ideas • Working together with someone technical can be a great combination
  19. 19. Find business opportunities • Important data that is collected manually today • What if it could be done automatically (less cost, better consistency) • What if data was colleccted more often (ex: hourly instead of weekly) • Data that isn’t available today that could help you • Make better decisions • Find new ways to help your customers • Find new ways of doing business
  20. 20. Imagine useful scenarios that have the potential to deliver business value Test your idea IoT can be easy, cheap and incredibly useful
  21. 21. Sigfox global coverage
  22. 22. Key takeaways • IoT devices are cheaper than you think • IoT is easier to use than you think • IoT connectivity is cheaper than you think • LPWAN opens new possibilities (private base stations, better coverage, better battery life)
  23. 23. CONFIDENTIAL 24 Parking space management • Improve parking policies • Obtain turnover information in real time • Guide drivers more efficiently • Have greater control over special permit spaces • Save resources through fast implementation • Decrease costs through easy maintenance • Generate additional revenue • Decrease CO2 emissions Fastprk is an intelligent Parking Management System that allows cities and operators to manage parking resources more efficiently and parking operators to generate additional revenue. Fastprk offers information about parking availability to the drivers within blue and green spaces, and also on loading, taxis and disabled parking bays Problem solved Optimize parking spaces in the city BenefitsSolution LIVE

  • I’ll cover connectivity options and cost
    I’ll show you some devices that can be bought off the shelf
    Example business case from one of my recent projects
  • Physical devices (thermometers, door sensors, motion detectors, GPS, …)
    Connected: Information can be made available from anywhere – no need to be in the same physical place

    So we need connectivity and we need devices. I’ll cover both of these. Let’s start with connectivity, but first…
  • Preventive maintenance
    Automated decisions – order new chemicals when tank is getting low
    Connecting cars enabled Sunfleet so sell rent by the hour and distance – automated
  • Launched during mobile workd congress just a few weeks ago
  • Uses same idea as early communication with submarines.

    Long battery life means less maintenance – if you have 100 devices that need battery replacement every 6 months you’ll need to change batteries in one unit per day on average.

    Commerical networks exist. Sigfox largest provider.
  • Roaming is included
  • Red means good coverage (Sigfox is a French company)
    This is official coverage. Over water, range is usually better than what the official coverage shows. With Sigfox, 90-100km range is routinely observed in the English Channel and the Mediterranean.
  • More than 1,000 different Sigfox devices exist already. I’ll show you some examples.
  • Temp and air humidity
    Easy installation
    ~100EUR (1 000 SEK) in small volumes. Connectivity 5 years included. Online dashboard included.
    CO2 version also exists. Measure air in conference rooms so people can stay productive and not make bad decisions
  • Made by a Czech company
    Simple as Czech beer. Cheap as Czech beer.
    15 EUR. 50,000 items ready for delivery.
    Waterproof
    Battery life :3,600 messages
    Alert when moved (door, drawer, bike, car, house)
    Tracking (luggage, asset, pallet)
    Tracing (real time journey tracing of a package and any impact)
    Fall with G-force recording
    Vibration while engine runs
    Door banging
    Truck running
    Crane arm moving
    Traffic signage displacement
  • Manufacturing cost: 0.3EUR
    Christophe Fourtet, co-founder Sigfox
    Many other use cases. Detect when emergency exits are opened, life saving equipment is removed, …
  • Airbus uses IoT to track spare parts
  • Build the transporter to spec, send it to the customer.
    25 employees
    A few years later the customer calls ”Torsås, we have a problem”. Bad start, slow feedback.
    Preventive maintenance – offer the customer the right service at the right price
    An ”excuse” to call the customer. ”Your transporter has just passed 1000h running time and I’d like to check in and make sure everything is alright. Do you need anything else?”
    Sell the data back to the customer
    Business model transformation – sell ”cubic meters of transported stuff” instead of selling machines.

    Time from initial meeting to first live installation: 6 business weeks
    Battery life: 5-10 years

    Phase 2 includes collecting ideas from employees and customers. When they se what we’ve done so far, they start bubbling with ideas. Get the snowball rolling.
  • Don’t let lack of budget stop you – start simple.

    Humans make mistakes. Computers do what we tell them, but they are consistent.

    Chalmers thesis worker: pH levels in Swedish lakes. Manually once per month, or automatially every hour?

    Predictive maintenance. Better comfort and lower cost for indoor climate.

    Track deliveries from vendors or to customers.

    What is frustrating, takes too much time or costs too much money today?

    What data could help us better serve our customers. How can we offer the customer what they need before they know they need it? Paper towels in public restrooms.
