Industry Session

◀ EWSN 2015 Program

For EWSN 2015, several invitees from industry will talk about their work and experiences with real-world applications ranging from health to transport. The industrial session will comprise of talks by each of our invited guest speakers addressing topics such as case studies, design methodologies, tools, deployment experiences and industry challenges, followed by a short discussion panel. The idea is to motivate discussions for interesting and potentially disruptive technology directions, so that you can walk away with a few interesting ideas to pursue.

He owns a PhD in Technological Physics and has more than 20 years experience in the areas of software architecture, telemetry and distributed systems and instrumentation. He is author or co-author of several scientific publications in international refereed journals, managed several national and European projects and developed some innovative remote management systems.

Martin Kubisch (Airbus Group Innovations)

Martin Kubisch received his diploma in electrical engineering and Ph.D. from Technical University Berlin, Germany, respectively. He joined Airbus Group Innovations (formerly EADS Innovation Works) in 2008 and his research covers areas from reliable wireless to secure communication needs in aeronautical environments. His current research interests include energy-efficient networking, infrastructure-less security approaches, and domain/flow segregation. He has more than 25 publications at conferences and in journals.

Paulo Ferreira dos Santos (Kinematix)

Paulo is a serial entrepreneur - Paulo has already created 6 companies in different areas, from IT to real estate - and is the person that initially pushed to start-up Kinematix, after detecting the opportunity and a prototype of a device that further become the first company’s product, during his master studies in Innovation and Technological Entrepreneurship, in the Faculty of Engineering from the University of Porto.
The company’s vision, ambitious, excitement and international strategy reflects his profound know-how, ambition, commitment and excitement about this venture and the market opportunities, and his leadership qualities and style allowed the company to be able to gather a committed and aligned team as well as a credible list of partners, supporters and advisors.
He has a degree in computer sciences and management and a master degree in innovation and technological entrepreneurship, from the University of Porto, Portugal. He began his career in 1988.

Peter Priller (AVL ITS Global Research & Technology)

Peter Priller is technology scout for embedded systems in AVL ITS Global Research & Technology.
After graduating in electrical engineering at technical university Graz, Austria, he worked for some two years in ASIC development at an RFID startup. Since then he is with AVL Graz in various positions from software development to system architecture / real-time systems to software project management. Since 2011 he works in AVL ITS global R&T responsible for managing research cooperations and projects focusing on embedded systems and wired/wireless communication networks. Mr. Priller is involved in national and European research projects (currently ARROWHEAD, DEWI, EMC2) and holds several patents in the field of real time control and measurement systems. He lectures at the university of applied science (FH) computer network engineering, and at the technical university Graz on automotive test systems.
