Sketch To Scale: Accelerating IoT Products With Collective Innovation (Internet of Things Applications USA 2016)

Mr Bob Groppo, Flex Fellow, VP of Engineering
United States

Presentation Summary

The Intelligence of Things will deliver over 50 million new smart, connected devices in markets such as wearables, digital health, transportation, and energy. But this rapid growth is straining traditional product development teams who must screen and qualify the evolving core technologies that integrate to build these new products.
This presentation will provide an overview of the key technology building blocks needed to meet this challenge - including sensors & actuators, HMI, connectivity, smart software, battery & power - and the Collective Innovation ecosystem of technology partners which is delivering qualified, integrated and reusable technology platforms that reduce adoption risk and time to market.
