Introducing Future Electronics ‘Intelligence of Things’ – a European seminar series to help designers implement secure IoT edge nodes

Future Electronics, founded in 1968 by company president Robert Miller and now a world-class leader and innovator in the distribution and marketing of electronics components, today released details of a European series of technical seminars presenting new sensor and security technologies for Internet of Things (IoT) devices and guidance on ways to take advantage of cloud computing.


This series of ‘Sensor to Cloud’ workshops is the latest activity in a Future Electronics programme to enhance the Intelligence of Things, and follows on from a successful demonstration of Smart City technology at the Embedded World exhibition (Nuremberg, 14-16 March 2017).


The seminars will take place during May, June and July in 20 convenient city locations in France, Germany, Italy, the UK, Sweden, Finland, The Netherlands and Spain. Technical presentations will be provided by experts from Future Electronics’ specialist Future Connectivity Solutions division, and from ARM, IBM, NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics and others.


Each event will also feature a lunchtime technology fair featuring demonstrations from Future Electronics’ franchised suppliers.


Visitors to the seminars will learn:

·      the criteria for choosing the best sensor for an IoT node

·      how to protect edge nodes against post-deployment hacking and exploitation

·      how to commission edge nodes securely and easily

·      the best choice of short- and long-range wireless technologies

·      how to implement and deploy gateways

·      the benefits of the ARM mbed platform for connecting nodes to the cloud easily and securely

·      the business and user benefits to be derived from the analysis of cloud-based data


Access to the events is limited to professional engineers who want information to support the development of Internet of Things devices and systems, and who reserve a place in advance. Details of the dates and venues, and more information about the content of the seminars, may be obtained by e-mailing , or via the Seminars link at the Technical Resources section of the website for the reader’s region.
