Embedded Live 2018

The Embedded Live 2018 exhibition in association with Feabhas will offer industry a great mix of exhibitors showing a vast range of products and services, plus it will be supported by four half-day conference programmes.  To find out more about how you can be involved email live@wnie.co.uk

Conference Program

Embedded Live brings to the UK a conference for Embedded Software Developers which covers current industry “hot topics” in four, focused sections. The conference will bring together engineers and experts from across the world of embedded software development, to share their experience and knowledge.  The focus will be on techniques and user stories rather than on tools and product pitches. The conference will comprise of four, half day sessions.

In association with:

This year’s four topics are:

Tuesday 25 Sept Morning Session

Agile for Embedded

There is an increasing uptake of Agile techniques within Embedded Software Development. There are many lessons to be learned, as there is little published about how Agile works with the unique requirements of embedded development.

Mary Ann Johnson, Display Link – When Pre-Canned Agile Doesn’t Fit
Glenn Coates, York University – Architecturally Driven, Iterative Development – a case study in project recovery
Paul Tiplady, AVL – Software development with an agile mindset in a non-agile environment

Tuesday 25 Sept Afternoon Session 

Security and Safety

High-integrity design, implementation and testing is vital to both safety-critical and secure systems.  Safety is an enduring issue for Embedded Systems and continues to be a vital topic as electronics takes us into new areas such as driverless cars and medical devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) has driven an ever-increasing pressure on the security of embedded systems too.

Ken Munro and Andrew Tierney, PenTest Partners – IoT reverse engineering and security fail
Dr Roderick Chapman, Protean Code Ltd – Murphy vs Satan: Why programming secure systems is still so hard

Wednesday 26 Sept Morning Session

Real-Time Operating Systems

Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) are at the core of many embedded systems. The correct selection and application of an RTOS is a key architectural decision for any embedded project. Many concepts of concurrent design are poorly understood by the developers of embedded software.

Liviu Ionescu, Aviation Instruments Intl – The µOS++ IIIe framework

Wednesday 26 Sept Afternoon Session

Quality and Reliability

Software should always fulfil the needs of its users. Beyond that embedded software developers are tasked with ensuring systems meet many other quality requirements – compliance to standards; providing extensible, flexible and maintainable designs; providing high levels of dependability, reliability and robustness. The management of these issues is vital to a successful project.

Niall Cooling, Feabhas – Measuring Software Quality
Anto Joys Yesuadimai Michael, Llarina Lobo Palacios, Sebastian Zuther, Valeo – Automated protocol definition for data transfer for configuration and debugging
Dylan Llewellyn, QA Systems – The Cost of Standards Compliance – What to ask your Vendor

‘Following the success of our Agile for Embedded conference a last year, we are delighted to work with WNIE to bring the same format to a larger conference, addressing more topics from the world of Embedded Software. The UK lacks a national conference that offers practical and pragmatic advice to developers and we hope we can change this together.’ – Niall Cooling MD, Feabhas
