TRON Project aims to realize the vision of "Computing Everywhere," the IoT (Internet of Things), or ubiquitous computing. The symposium showcases the latest results of the IoT research and development such as the embedded systems platforms "T-Kernel 2.0" and "μT-Kernel 2.0" for the IoT nodes, the ubiquitous ID technology including uID architecture 2.0, and open data and big data applications.
With the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE Consumer Electronics Society, this symposium holds the paper sessions where papers on the latest research of ubiquitous computing, the IoT, and embedded systems are presented.
TRON OS family for embedded systems has the topmost share in the global RTOS market and attracts attention from the industry all over the world. The new roadmap and details of the TRON RTOS family, the real-world products that use it, and the development environments are presented. The important infrastructure for the IoT nodes is showcased including TRON RTOS family itself, the middleware which runs on top of it, the technology to assure security and high reliability.
The showcase introduces the latest technologies, applications and services of ubiquitous computing or the IoT (Internet of Things) environment which is established by the computers embedded in various objects and places and connected via networks. Many perspectives from different technologies such as u2 Architecture which has been expanded as uID 2.0, future home electronic appliances, and kokosil(r) location information sharing platform are presented.
2015 TRON Symposium (TRONSHOW) holds "The Next-generation Real-time Systems Technology Exhibition" and "The IoT/Ubiquitous Computing Exhibition" simultaneously "The Next-generation Real-time Systems Technology Exhibition" introduces the latest development environment for embedded devices, middleware, and examples of its practical application. "The IoT/Ubiquitous Computing Exhibition" introduces sensor nodes, network control systems, tools for big data analysis and open data preparation and publication, terminal devices, solutions, and examples of applications and business use cases. Furthermore, there are "Overseas Pavilion" which introduces the efforts made by overseas universities and organizations, and "Government Pavilion" that introduces the national/local governments' activities; "Academic Member Booths" which report the research in academia; and "Open Data for Public Transportation Pavilion" which introduces the technology that publicizes information on the facilities and status of public transportation services.
Open data is data version of public infrastructure: API to access highly public data is published, and such data is made available via network. There have been increasing needs for the information on advanced public transportation network in urban areas lately. Open data for public transportation is an approach to provide such information by using the “open data” method. The approach is considered essential for providing smooth public transportation services during 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. This pavilion showcases how information of public transportation services should be provided in and after 2020 by fully utilizing open data for public transportation.
