Prof. Jerker Delsing
Organisation: Lulea University of Technology/ Arrowhead project
Position in the organisation: Professor/ Coordinator
Biography note: Prof. Jerker Delsing received the M.Sc. in Engineering Physics at Lund Institute of Technology, Sweden 1982. In 1988 he received the PhD. degree in Electrical Measurement at the Lund University. During 1985 - 1988 he worked part time at Alfa-Laval - SattControl (now ABB) with development of sensors and measurement technology. In 1994 he got the docent degree (associate prof ) in Heat and Power Engineering. Early 1995 he was appointed full professor in Industrial Electronics at Lulea University of Technology where he currently is working as the scientific head of EISLAB, http://www.ltu. se/eislab. His present research profile can be entitled “Embedded Internet Systems Services”, with applications to automation in large and complex industry and society systems. The general idea is that most sensors and actuator will have communication capability using the Internet and the “TCP/IP” protocol suite and be capable of ah-hoc integration into a communication network. Each device can then provide services to the network/cloud upon which application can be built, thus using SOA to build large automation systems. Prof. Delsing and his EISLAB group has been a partner of several large EU projects in the field, e.g. Socrades and IMC-AESOP. Currently he is the coordinator of the very large ARTEMIS proposal Arrowhead, with 78 partners and a budget of 68M€. At the European level he is steering board member of ARTEMIS, board member of ProcessIT.EU. At national (Sweden) level he is board member of ProcessIT Innovations and ESIS.
Parallel Workshop Session W2.6 – “The ARTEMIS Innovation Pilot Project for Production and Energy Systems Automation“
Automation will in the future be built on services provided by systems and things all of the being networked. This puts high requirements on simple and seamless interoperability of services form different systems and things provided by any company. Arrowhead is addressing service interoperability by defining the Arrowhead service technology framework which will be proven in real application pilots in five technology domains, production, smart cities, electromobility, energy production and usage and the virtual market of energy. The service framework will provide core services for information infrastructure, system management and information assurance. Utilising the framework applications like railway train wide maintenance systems can be created supporting easy information tailoring to involved stakeholders.
