Internet of Things Webinar Series


Engineering Challenges of the Connected Soldier

Many of the technologies that underpin the commercial boom in the internet of things were initiated through government funded defense programs. These include advanced sensors, networked computing and communication systems. In a 2015 report called Leveraging the Internet of Things for a More Efficient and Effective Military, the Center for Strategic and International Studies reported that the soldier of tomorrow will be much more connected than the soldier of today.

This connectivity will provide enhanced situational awareness, communication and health monitoring. Join us in this webinar where we will discuss some of the engineering challenges associated with making the connected soldier a reality and hear a perspective from Dr Stavros Geogakopoulos on novel collapsible mobile antenna systems that will enable a soldier to carry a powerful antenna into combat folded into his back pocket.

Wireless Power Transfer Design Solutions

With so many mobile devices in use — especially the increasing number of electric automobiles — wiring them all to a power supply for charging can be an impossible challenge.  A wireless transfer system works by the transmission of time-dependent electromagnetic power from a source to a device without using any solid conductive materials. But this technology presents many challenges that require engineering simulation to solve.

Attend this webinar to learn how ANSYS Maxwell can be used to develop an optimal, non-radiative wireless power transfer system. The energy transfer can be generated by either radiative or non-radiative electromagnetic field effects. Discover how Maxwell’s simulation capabilities can help you integrate electrothermal models into a circuit design environment to provide a comprehensive multiphysics analysis.

IoT: Modeling Sensors and MEMs with ANSYS

Sensors, actuators and other MEMS devices are the lifeblood of the Internet of Things (IoT). These tiny devices gather the information and initiate the actions that the IoT depends on. Because of their small size and complex functions, designing MEMS involves many different physics, and widely varied geometries and materials, which makes their development very difficult and time-consuming using build-and-test methods.

View this webinar, presented by ANSYS channel partner Ozen Engineering, to learn how ANSYS engineering simulation solutions can help you design your sensors, actuators and other MEMs devices most effectively. Discover best practices for multiple physics simulations that will ensure your success in the IoT marketplace.

Shake, Rattle and Roll: Designing IoT Devices to Withstand Harsh Environments

Because the Internet of Things (IoT) is everywhere, the smart devices that comprise the IoT must be able to function reliably for long periods in a variety of harsh conditions. Extremes of vibration, impact and fatigue can result in significant repair costs, mission failure and even risk to human life. Damage caused by vibrations during launch was responsible for 45 percent of first-day spacecraft electronics failures, according to NASA.

View this webinar to learn how you can use ANSYS engineering simulation solutions to understand and minimize the hazards for IoT devices as a result of vibration, impact and fatigue. Discover how performing simulations early in the design process — before significant investments have been made — can help you pinpoint effective solutions and guide key tradeoffs to deliver products with better performance at lower cost.
