Track 2: IIOT: Enabling a Surge in Industrial Productivity

The consumer market has shown eagerness for the adoption of Internet-of-Things technologies. In the industrial and manufacturing sector, there is a quiet revolution under way which promises to profitably leverage the power of connectedness. The “sensor” part of this platform is fairly well developed; what remains to be developed are ruggedized software backbones and the subsequent integration in workflow environments. In this session, a panel of experts will explore this issue from a variety of standpoints: competitive need, investment prospects, legal considerations and adoption challenges. The session will prepare technology transfer professionals with the inevitable need to handle these technologies.
