Including sensors in products and manufacturing systems will create valuable information. The business model can be adapted based on this information. Information about customer use will feed into the design. But perhaps the most important impact is the creation of services. Development of products can lead not only to accompanying maintenance, but also to other services.
Our device facilitates real time Machine-to-Machine communication offered by the IoT, which will synchronise complex, high-end production systems, creating highly innovative value chains that cut across traditional sectors and domains. Advanced forms of manufacturing will drive the design of new materials, blurring the line between manufacturing and assembly.
Our devices connect existing machines with the Internet of Things. By making this connection users get information and insights that were previously lacking, like for example usage and user preferences, maintenance indicators and supply management, all remotely controlled.
