Going Green with Internet of Things (IoT)




Start Date:7/20/2016

Start Time:1:00 PM CDT / 2:00 PM ET

Duration:60 minutes


A growing population and expanding global activities continue to put Earth’s resources under pressure, and today many businesses face social, economic, and legislative pressures to make our future not only better, but greener. The Internet of Things (IoT) is bridging the physical and digital worlds, with new solutions that bring significant environmental benefits for people, businesses, and the planet. With 50 to 200 billion connected IoT devices being deployed by 2020, IoT is one thing that can positively contribute to the environment starting today. Companies like Taxibot, developer of the first robotic airplane towing vehicle; AugustaWestland, creator of an award-winning all-electric aircraft; and Schneider Electric, developer of an intelligent energy management system, are all making an impact by creating innovative products that address various environmental concerns—from increased emissions and global warming to the gradual depletion of energy sources.

What you will learn:

  • Ways IoT can improve how we manage the Earth’s resources
  • How companies are making a positive impact on our environment today
  • How Wind River’s VxWorks is playing a role in helping create a greener Earth
