Biography: Ravishankar Borgaonkar works as a research scientist at SINTEF Digital and undertakes research in securing next generation digital communication. His primary research themes are related to mobile telecommunication and involved security threats. This ranges from 2G/3G/4G/5G network security to end-user device and information security. After receiving his PhD in 'security in telecommunication' area from the technical university of Berlin, he was a security researcher at Deutsche Telekom's lab for 3 years. Since that time he has worked for Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Secure Computing at Aalto University, as well as for the University of Oxford focusing on 5G security research mainly. He is known for identifying several protocol flaws in 3G/4G technologies that assisted in shaping the current 4G and 5G security standards. He is also a frequent speaker at the foremost computer security and industry-recognized conferences including Blackhat USA and Europe, Troopers Germany, Hack in the Box, Ruxcon Australia and many others.

Title: Advanced Sensing and its Decisive Role for Digitization

Jörg Gebhardt
Senior Principal Scientist, ABB Corporate Research, Germany

Abstract: Availability of appropriate sensor solutions is a well-known success criterion for digitization, Industry 4.0 and similar system scenarios of the future.
This holds for all areas of industry and social life. Some ways how it can be accomplished are discussed in this talk, e.g. for a classical measurement value like temperature, the most frequently measured variable in process industries, or for more complex variables describing the state of a plant, a city etc.
In a detailed physical analysis, it is shown how model-based embedded intelligence creates clamp-on temperature device performances which are competitive to standard installations in many, possibly the majority, of cases.
Sensing points, then, are available at lower cost. Installation time is often reduced from months to hours. Pervasive sensing is possible.
Innovative sensing, as soon it is available, often triggers new use cases with remarkable customer benefit. Time seems to be ready for a big technology shift.
Synergies with the newest wireless communication technology, with energy harvesting and artificial intelligence will be considered. Optimization and fault analysis use cases are discussed, and and corresponding future sensor system proposals, resulting in various degrees of system autonomy.
Scalability of the concepts is a way to lower the short-term entry threshold of smart sensing and Industrie 4.0, for large corporations as well as for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Biography: Jörg Gebhardt received his PhD in Theoretical Physics from University of Bonn. He joined ABB Corporate Research in 1997. Main areas of his work are technology developments in industrial instrumentation and sensor system theory, e.g. in the context of process industries and power grids. Jörg Gebhardt´s scientific interests include modeling and simulation of sensor systems, especially regarding unconventional applications such as non-invasive. A concept and product which he co-authored, the ABB NiTemp Non-invasive Temperature Instrument, was shortlisted for the renowned Hermes Award at Hanover Fair 2019. Jörg Gebhardt is co-author of guidelines VDI2650 / NAMUR-NE107: "Requirements regarding self-monitoring and diagnosis in field instrumentation”. He is a member of the committee VDI-FA 1.10: “Foundations of measurement systems” („Grundlagen der Messsysteme“).
