Defining an Architectural Framework for the Internet of Things

The ISA104 committee, Device Integration, normally meets via WebEx each quarter. However, once per year we have a face-to-face meeting in conjunction with the ISA Fall Leaders Meeting. This year ISA104 committee met on October 12 at the Fall Leaders Meeting held in Louisville, KY. As part of the ISA104 meeting we review work we have done over the last year to promote the Field Device Integration (FDI) standard, IEC 62769. Also, we often have an invited presentation that addresses some aspect of future work on device integration. This year Ludwig Winkel, Siemens, was the invited speaker. In his talk, Ludwig discussed how work within IEC on device integration fits into work by IEEE P2413 to define an architectural framework for the Internet of Things. If you would like to learn more about this work within IEEE then you can access Ludwig’s presentation using the links below.
