IEEE Council on RFID – Educational Mega-Challenge 2020

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019

The IEEE Council on RFID is pleased to announce that we will once again be running our Educational Mega-Challenge as a part of the 14th Annual International Conference on RFID. This year’s topic, It’s RAINing IoT, will concentrate on the integration of RAIN (UHF) RFID into an Internet of Things (IoT) solution. Undergraduate and graduate student teams are invited to submit solutions that use IoT to address technical, social, or economic problems or issues. The projects must have RAIN RFID as a component of the solution, but the RAIN RFID component does not have to be the centerpiece. Proposals can be a part of ongoing research, a completely new concept or a variant of another proposal or solution.

Submissions are due by 22:00 UTC on February 7, 2020, and should be in the form of a response to an RFP. See the webpage (2020.ieee-rfid.org/crfidmega/) for details on judging and submissions. The three finalist teams will be invited to present in person at the Conference in the RFID Journal Live Awards Theater where one member will give a 3 minute, single slide presentation of their solution.

Teams must have at least one IEEE student member and one IEEE senior member (as an advisor/mentor). Teams are encouraged to be multi-disciplinary and can be comprised of students from up to two institutions (community colleges, 4-year colleges/universities). Thanks to our generous sponsors, the three finalist teams will receive funding to help defray the costs of travel to the conference (exact amount will be dependent upon the final level of sponsorship that is obtained), but the winning team will receive approximately 1/2 of the funding and the runner-ups will receive approximately one-quarter each).

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the Mega-Challenge chair, Dr. Kevin Berisso at megachallenge@ieee-rfid.org or kberisso@memphis.edu.

Memphis .NET User Group – AdvancedHMI: A new paradigm in Automation Controls

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Memphis .NET User Group

Thursday, August 24, 2017
6:00 PM

This Month’s Topic: AdvancedHMI: A new paradigm in automation controls.

The integration of user facing software with traditional automation controls has always been an expensive, specialized area. Software systems referred to within the automation industry as SCADA and HMI are normally closed loop systems that use specialized software that, at most, supports a small level of customization. This presentation will introduce the wider .NET community to an open source solution that is based in Microsoft’s Visual Studio environment while still retaining the requisite levels of industrial robustness required for manufacturing facilities to reliably operate 24/7. Designed to be infinitely flexible, while removing the requirement of hiring a traditional computer programmer, AdvancedHMI has brought the industrial controls industry an open source solution that spans the “drag and drop” paradigm up through the ability to general totally custom controls. The presentation will include a live demonstration of the AdvancedHMI solution including the actual communication with production level hardware.

Our Speaker:

Kevin Berisso is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Technology at the University of Memphis. His areas of expertise include robotics, automation, systems integration and automatic identification. Kevin has worked as a manufacturing engineer doing controls work and as a custom software project engineer. He also has a consulting company that does .NET based bar code and RFID based software integration. Kevin’s current academic research involves a newer bar code technology called DotCode and he is currently working to develop a baseline body of knowledge on the performance characteristics of the symbology.
