When asked about what he’s most excited for this year, Ford says the medical space is what intrigues him most, and he can’t wait to hear Walt Hauck’s talk.
“His company, Haemonetics, manages blood supply and their attention to detail and their ability to determine, in real time, what blood is available using IoT is probably one of the most comprehensive implementations,” said Ford.
He is also looking forward to hearing from Tony Atti of Phononic.
“This company a refrigeration strategy that is better than traditional systems and backs it up with monitoring and management system,” said Ford. “Both of these companies point to how IOT is be used beyond the improvement of maintenance systems or supply chain.  We are seeing literally life changing solutions.”
