Ventilators monitoring: a collaborative and Design Thinking project success

Wednesday, July 1, 2020 9:00 AM CET – 10:00 AM CET

These days, projects have become more complex, the mass of data is increasing, and more new technologies are being introduced while regulations are becoming stricter. This can lead to major breakdowns. That is why we want to share with you our experience solving a difficult problem through a simple solution. We are three companies coming together to develop a Design Thinking project for ventilators monitoring. smart motors along with AEInnova (which specializes in energy harvesting) and our partner Weidmüller (which specializes in industrial connectivity) will cover the following topics: 

  • How to develop projects under Design Thinking strategies to increase the ratio of success in Digitalization
  • How to deal with unexpected results through iterations 
  • How to take advantage of energy harvesting to monitor in an efficient and easy integration way.

These topics will be explained through the real case of ventilators monitoring.
