Following two workshops “Operating Systems in Measurement Instruments and other software Problems in Legal Metrology“, and „Protection of Measurement Data in Legal Metrology and Related Challenges” which were very well received by the international metrological community, another two-day Workshop will again cover contemporary challenges and chances regarding software and IT in Legal Metrology under the guiding theme: „Advanced technology meets daily practice“.
IT technologies have evolved significantly over the past ten years – namely Embedded Systems, the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber physical Systems, Cloud Computing and Big-Data concepts. These have converged into completely new technology fields like the industrial internet and Smart Services. These fields offer technology- and data-driven possibilities which can be exploited for the benefit of all stakeholders in Legal Metrology, e.g. to reduce development costs, overcome typical barriers to innovation, and speed up the time to market of new products.
It is high time to bring all stakeholders in Legal Metrology once again together to discuss the challenges and opportunities the “Digital Single Market” offers. The workshop will be chaired by Florian Thiel from the PTB, convener of the WELMEC working group 7 "Software", and assisted by Marko Esche secretary for the chairmanship of OIML TC 5/SC 2 Software, as well as further colleagues from the PTB.
