Embedded World 2018: Preview of the show
Release on :2018-02-27
Embedded World is Europe’s largest showcase for embedded components and systems where over 1,000 exhibitors will show their wares across six halls of the Nuremberg Messe.
Embedded World is by no means a Europe-only show. The big chip firms exhibiting include Broadcom, Microchip/Atmel, Canonical (Ubuntu), Epson, Fujitsu, Infineon, Intel, Renesas, Rohm and Xilinx to name just a few.
Neither is it exclusive to processor chip firms. Mentor is there, as are Diodes/Zetex and Wurth, plus various Fraunhofer technology transfer institutes, and hundreds of firms you will not have heard of that could be doing something of value to you.
The event also includes an extensive conference, with over 30 sessions – each with up to five papers presented – plus a bunch of educational classes.
Beyond the keynotes, the conference is broadly split into: IoT, embedded vision, autonomous systems, security and safety; embedded operating systems, systems and software engineering, and hardware engineering. There is also a separate small electronics displays conference.
Also on everyone’s agenda is the recurring theme of hacking, securing embedded devices, and cryptography, which all feature heavily.
The conference schedule includes multi-paper sessions devoted to Bluetooth and energy-harvesting, embedded graphical interfaces and augmented reality, sensor fusion, machine learning, embedded android, RISC-V and OLEDs, to name a few.
The IoT has become such a driving force in the embedded space that the exhibition now includes Amazon Web Services and other cloud server firms alongside traditional attendees.
The Messe venue is a few miles outside Nuremberg town centre, on the well-serviced U1 (and U11) train lines.
The town itself is a pleasant place to spend an evening, but, such is the popularity of the event, it can be tricky to find hotel rooms during Embedded World.
Your options at the last minute include paying whatever it costs to stay in town, or staying outside the town – which can mean car hire. Hotels in Munich present another possibility as there is a fast train line between Munich and Nuremberg that costs about €50. Little advertised, and not much slower, there is a stopping train for around half that price.
Flights from the UK to Nuremberg do exist, but there are more to Munich or Frankfurt. While Frankfurt airport is further from Nuremberg, it does have the advantage of being on a main train line to Nuremberg, while Munich airport is a 45-minute local train ride from the town centre station from which the Nuremberg train departs.
