Dr. Alexandre Alapetite is a software engineer and project manager focusing on cyber-physical systems such as IoT and robotics. I am currently leading the Nordic IoT Centre activities at the Alexandra Institute. With a PhD de-gree in informatics and a background as a senior researcher at the Technical University of Denmark, he applies academic research to various applicaion domains. His work in the field of IoT focuses on prototypes involving various sensors, wireless technologies and back-ends, especially in the context of smart products and smart cities, including interoperability (standardisation), scalability, and security aspects. Tasks include: system archi-tect, crowd monitoring, positioning & location-based services, developing custom beacons (e.g. for the visual impaired), adding predictive maintenance (e.g. railway). My recent interests are edge computing, data validation and IoT-enabling existing products.
