2020 TRON Symposium -TRONSHOW- Reports

Outline Exhibitors Sessions TEPS

TRON Project is a comprehensive project based on the philosophy of “Open Architecture.” TRON Project has been expanding its “Open” approach in many fields including embedded systems: for example, “Open data” that makes available the data owned by the government, local governments, public transportation operators, etc. and utilizes them, and ”Open API” that enhances “the Internet of Things (IoT)” to create convenient services that span the boundaries of manufacturers and service providers.
The symposium will introduce elemental technologies that realize “Open API,” and their application examples, and examples of the collaboration with other projects. This year again, with the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE Consumer Technology Society, a paper session is held to present papers on the latest research of the IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), open data and embedded systems.

Open IoT system
Embedded systems and cloud systems to realize “Open IoT” are exhibited. Real-time OS (RTOS) , e.g. ITRON specification OS and T-Kernel, middleware and development environment required for embedded systems, application examples, etc. are on display. Sensor nodes and network control systems, big data analysis support tools, open data support tools, solutions to realize Open IoT, their usage examples including business applications, etc. are introduced.
IoT Edge Node Platform
“μT-Kernel 3.0” is an RTOS specification which is fully compliant with “IEEE 2050-2018,” the international standard OS specification for IoT edge nodes adopted by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The detailed specification of μT-Kernel 3.0, the road map of TRON Forum's RTOS, and products that incorporate μT-Kernel 3.0 are introduced.
"IoT-Aggregator" that has been under development to realize service collaboration and advanced access control in Open IoT environment, and new "IoT-Engine" equipped with multi-core microprocessor now will be on display.
Overseas / Government / Local government Pavilion
Activities of government such as the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government in Japan and overseas activities in cooperation with TRON Project are shown.
TRON IoT Vulnerability Advisory Center (TIVAC)
With wide adoption of the IoT, cyberattack is a serious emerging risk for the IoT. The IoT system model employs clouds and embedded systems together via network, so careful risk management is necessary. “TRON IoT Vulnerability Advisory Center,” that has been established in TRON Forum, issues advisories on this topic.
Open Data for Public Transportation
Association for Open Data of Public Transportation chaired by Ken Sakamura promotes open data of public transportation information by encouraging the construction of advanced next-generation public transportation services in cooperation with public transportation operators and ICT operators. It also carries out R&D on standard platform for such services and make public transportation policy recommendations. In addition to these activities, this pavilion exhibits use cases such as application examples of the data provided by Public Transportation Open Data Center and the 4th Open Data Challenge for Public Transportation in Tokyo currently being held, and introduces how to make full use of public transportation open data in the "New Normal" age.
