Tech in Action. Discover some of our Demos

Besides all the insightful conversations we had with our visitors and partners at #EW23, our team of expert engineers have demoed some of the leading tech in action! Check out our projects below to discover how such boards as ROCK, Arduino and Nano C100 can support demanding applications that require image recognition capabilities.

This year Embedded World has promoted some key values under their motto “embedded. responsible. sustainable.”

Here are the main topics of the show explained:

  • Embedded: Modern design concepts of complex embedded systems are influenced by a variety of technological challenges. So, some key things to focus on this year are smart, efficient, safe and reliable software and hardware tools.
  • Responsible: As embedded systems are being used more and more in function-critical applications such as medical technology, mobility and industrial automation, it is important to ensure that they can carry critical tasks safely and reliably. Some important aspects to address are design, formal verification methods and ethical issues.
  • Sustainable: To ensure that embedded systems can be sustainable while playing a key role in various applications, it’s critical to address the entire life cycle – from design, manufacturing and operation to refurbishment, decommissioning and disposal.

OKdo Team & Partners about their experience at #EW23

Scott Carson, OKdo

“Embedded World has long been a cornerstone event for designers, engineers, and manufacturers alike. The chance to engage with fellow innovators on the cutting edge of technology, discussing new and exciting projects that have the potential to shape the future, imbues the entire community with a sense of energy and inspiration. Having explored the floor at this year’s event, it’s clear that the opportunities in AI and security are abundant, and witnessing the rapid advancements in hardware over the past year has been truly remarkable. Overall, this experience has deepened my understanding of the industry and left me eagerly anticipating what lies ahead in the coming year. Let’s Design the World!”

– Scott Carson, Global Product Manager at OKdo
Raul Hernandez Fernandez, OKdo

“Embedded World 2023 was an amazing show where the most active and innovative companies showed their new solutions and capabilities, so it was amazing to be part of the show helping OKdo. Embedded World is the biggest trade show about embedded solutions in Europe, and if you want to be a relevant player in distribution, you have to show your capabilities and partnerships and know how to attract clients and strong partners to work with. My biggest highlight was meeting with customers and partners. To see the amazing work that they did and the realization of the massive impact that OKdo can have on the community by linking customers with our partners’ solutions.”

– Raul Hernandez Fernandez, Applications Engineer at OKdo
Simon Lummis, OKdo

“I visited an Embedded World show for the first time this year, and I can say that it’s a big event that I enjoyed a lot. It’s given me a chance to learn a lot, uncover some really interesting questions and explore new applications for our technology. Being part of Embedded World was really important for us at OKdo, as that allowed us to engage with our future customers and suppliers and learn more about their views, applications and business needs that will ultimately help us propose the best-tailored solutions to their particular needs.”

Simon Lummis, Sales Manager UK & Ireland (UK) at OKdo
Ole Valeur, OKdo

“Embedded World is one of the key events for us at OKdo to connect with embedded system integrators, OEMs, key customers and partners. I’ve enjoyed all the opportunities that arise spontaneously at the show when speaking with customers and suppliers and exploring ways for us to work together and build a brighter future for us all. The best moment for me was observing the optimism that everyone brought with them to the event. Embedded World was one of the biggest trade shows in the industry happening post-Covid, so I could observe that everyone was happy to attend and find new ways of working. Despite the current economic situation, companies are still looking for new opportunities to develop innovative technology and build great things together.”

Ole Valuer, Senior Global Application Engineer at OKdo
Matt Johnson, CEO of LAIIER

“Embedded World 2023 had some solid post-Covid energy with people ready to create new projects and products. Smart buildings, environmental monitoring and (climate) impact seemed to be on a lot of agendas based on the demos that I saw. It is THE event to connect to the people who prototype, specify, and manufacture the devices that define our world. Connecting with the OKdo team, of course, has been the biggest highlight of the vent for me, as well as connecting with other companies on the OKdo stand. It was fantastic that OKdo was providing the platform to make these connections, and I think visitors felt it too.”

Matt Johnson, CEO of LAIIER
