In a joint organization, the Portuguese and the Spanish Chapters of the IEEE Education Society prepared a technical meeting at exp@17 about new frontiers in engineering.

During the meeting, distinguished IEEE members from both Chapters will show how different technologies will affect our lives in the years to come.

Although all topics are related to computing, different perspectives and application areas will guarantee that a great diversity of interesting points will be covered during the meeting.

The presentation of Manuel Castro and Unai Hernández-Jayo will be centered around the Internet of Things (IoT) (Manuel in education and Unai in its application to autonomous cars), the one from Manuel Caeiro will be focused in wearables, electronic devices and systems incorporated in some part of our body or clothes, and the last one from Manuel Gericota will explain why Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are being (again) one of the current hot topics.

Introduction to the session

Although all topics are related to computing, different perspectives and application areas will guarantee that a great diversity of interesting points will be covered during the meeting.


The presentation of Manuel Castro and Unai Hernández-Jayo will be centered around the Internet of Things (IoT) (Manuel in education and Unai in its application to autonomous cars), the one from Manuel Caeiro will be focused in wearables, electronic devices and systems incorporated in some part of our body or clothes, and the last one from Manuel Gericota will explain why Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are being (again) one of the current hot topics.

IEEE Education Society: Reshaping the future of technology

In the session four researchers will present four different technical topics.


European Erasmus Plus Projects and Certification in Cloud Computing and IoT: This presentation focuses on new technologies and the way they could be implemented and increase his use inside the SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises). Cloud Computing as well as Internet of Things are two technologies that came in the last years to be part of our lives in the future as commodities and part of the daily technology life, but need to be included inside the literacy of our industry knowledge (and their workpower).


IOT applied to autonomous and connected vehicles: In the scenario of Intelligent Transport System (ITS), cooperative vehicular systems are a key factor not only to report information to the drivers in real time but also to gather accurate information about the traffic flow and events that occur during driving. Then vehicles can be considered as moving nodes in a Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) than can address Floating Car Data (FCD), thanks to the creation of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I or I2V) links, giving rise to Cooperative-ITS (C-ITS).


Commercial-Of-The-Shelf (COTS): Wearables supporting self-quantification: Wearables are defined as electronic devices and systems incorporated in some part of our body or clothes. After the appearance of the first consumer electronics wearables in early 2014, such as the Google Glasses, smart watches or wristbands, these devices have captured a lot of attention from general consumers, mainly from sport-related ones. Nevertheless, COTS wearables are just at an early stage of development and many issues related to their interoperability, accuracy and other technical issues.


Reconfigurable Computing: a new computing paradigm: By the end of 2015, Intel paid an astonishing $16.7 billion dollars for Altera, a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) manufacturer. During the presentation, we will get a glimpse of the architecture of those extraordinary devices Intel is so fond of, their features and the way they will change the microprocessor world, increasing computer performance while reducing their power consumption, creating a new computing paradigm.
