Eng. Sebastian Barillaro, National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA)

Sebastian Barillaro is a Researcher and Developer of End-to-End IoT Systems.

His work seeks to help Organizations in adopting innovative IoT technology in a secure manner, integrating it into legacy but still functional infrastructure.
Currently, he works for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, USA) and the National Institute of Industrial Technology (INTI, ARG), both national metrology institutions under a Collaboration Agreement. Sebastian is investigating the use of LPWAN for IoT applications in the NIST Smart Grid program.

Prior to his collaboration with NIST, he worked as an IoT researcher at INTI in Argentina. Before that, he had worked as a Software Developer, IT Cyber-Security Risk Analyst, Systems Administrator, etc. in various private companies.

He holds an Engineer Systems Degree from Universidad Nacional de La Matanza (UNLaM, Arg), where he used to teach development of IoT and organized several workshops.


Demonstration of Low Power Wide Area Networking for city-scale monitoring applications

Inexpensive battery-powered sensors are transforming science and technology, and the way they are applied to Smart Agriculture and Environmental Monitoring. Networks of sensors are an important class of Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) is a set of telecommunication technologies especially designed for networks where data to be transmitted is limited (such as sensor data) and communication is intermittent. LPWAN systems have end-to-end encryption, cover wide areas, and are very energy efficient.

This demonstration presents the main technical aspects of LoRa/LoRaWAN, one of the technologies within the disruptive LPWAN set. It also illustrates how to take advantage of the features of LPWAN applied to Smart Agriculture and Environmental Monitoring systems to improve their efficiency.

With the generous support of LuxTram, this demonstration presents a live example of an end-to-end mobile asset tracking system with a citywide range using LoRa/LoRaWAN for sensor data telecommunications.

Functional considerations about Smart Agriculture and Environmental Monitoring are curated by Julián Barillaro, Ms degree in biological sciences.
