The leading IoT event will exhibit 10 experimental platforms designed to implement new industrial solutions. A submersible transformer inspection robot designed for oil and gas platforms, a fully connected and sensorized work environment that dramatically improves worker safety, a predictive analytics platform that can wipe out downtime in factories and a solution that allows the remote management of boats capable of informing in real time about ship status, water leaks or un expected presence in the ship. These are the first four projects announced to take part in the 2017 Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions World Congress Testbed Area. Held at Fira de Barcelona from 3 to 5 October, the event will showcase 10 testbeds providing practical examples of how the industrial internet will change the way we produce and manage resources and businesses, transforming the global economy.
