The Internet of Things may be a hot topic in the society but it’s not a new concept especially in industry. In this talk, we introduce the fundamental concepts of Internet of Things (IoT) and critical points about how we can design an IoT system. In follow, we introduce Society 5.0 and Industry 4.0 and explain about two projects which was designed based on advanced mathematics for IoT systems.

WORKSHOP: Experimental activity, engineering students’ skills, innovation, industry and societyThe role of universities, and especially of their engineering schools, to plan and optimize their output of future professionals, represents a terribly demanding challenge due to our globalization era, with an unprecedented speed of change in the global environment.
The traditional slow adjustment of past curricular reforms in engineering schools has been accelerated to provide student profiles suitable to the global industry and to society demands. Topics such as project management, technology evaluation, engineering innovation and product testing are a few examples of current student skills to be add to scientific and technical knowledge.
As a simple example, I will look at the approach of the Laboratory of Instrumentation for Measurement (LIM) at the Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto and I will try to analyse its initiatives either in involving students in applied research activities and their outputs or in other activities within the society, with intensive gain in complementary skills.
LIM has provided resources, inspiration topics and freedom to their collaborators to work on innovating solutions, in contact with different areas of academic knowledge and listening society needs, gaining skills required by any successful engineering professional.
In each one practical activity, where creativity, and problem-solving where required, these students have engaged in higher-order thinking processes that benefits them, their peers, their instructors, and society.
Different examples could be presented where LIM has been sharing with its students or young granted graduated members, international and national Awards, patents, publications, communications at international and national events, etc.
Additionally to this discussion, some demonstrations of smart equipment developed under these approaches will be performed.
