Podcast: Smart IoT Manufacturing
POD2112: CoreKinect’s Assar Badri and John Horn on Smart IoT Manufacturing
Internet of Things (IoT) is a multi-trillion-dollar opportunity. Connecting legacy systems to autonomous sensors and controllers is opening new vistas for creating smart enterprises, manufacturing, cities, and homes.
Vendors both old and new are creating IoT components and systems to bring the smart world vision into focus. IoT architectures are popping up all over the channel. The expectations are high that IoT will result in greater user experiences and operational efficiencies. Moreover, IoT sellers and buyers have grand visions for immediate and ongoing returns on their investments.
On the supply side of the IoT equation is the manufacturing process. IoT devices – sensors and controllers – must often operate in cramped, remote, and exposed locations. They need to be durable, as they’ll operate in the wild for as long as a decade (or more). And they require security during the manufacturing process for their lifetime operation.
Those are significant challenges that permeate the conceptual, design, manufacturing, architecture, deployment, and operational phases of the IoT lifecycle.
CoreKinect, an IoT design and manufacturing start–up, is solving these IoT manufacturing challenges with a unique process for quickly translating IoT concepts into prototypes, and prototypes into finished products. And when it comes to manufacturing at scale, CoreKinect is building the products it brings to market in the United States, ensuring end-to-end security and quality at surprisingly competitive costs.
CoreKinect CEO and co-founder Assar Badri and president and chief strategist John Horn join POD2112’s Larry Walsh to discuss the smarter way to design and build IoT devices and systems.
