Hugo Fiennes, CEO and Co-Founder of Electric Imp
IoT will Transform the World, Including How You Launch Products

We are in the midst of one of the greatest shifts in manufacturing since the industrial revolution. As a trailblazer in launching innovative connected products, Hugo Fiennes, CEO and Co-founder of Electric Imp, shares his thoughts on why IoT will transform both the world, as well the products that you manufacture. He will also share the top three lessons Electric Imp has learned while helping hundreds of industrial and commercial manufacturers launch their secure IoT products. Prior to co-founding Electric Imp, Hugo led the hardware team through the first four generations of the groundbreaking Apple iPhone, and subsequently designed and architected the Nest Thermostat.

How Griswold Water Systems & Autodesk IoT Save Water, Money & Lives

Griswold Water Systems (GWS) wanted to change the extensive use of toxic chemicals to treat water used in cooling towers and engineered a new system treating the water with electrical fields. Water cooling towers sit atop buildings and work by lowering the building’s temperature through water evaporation. GWS, and its partners Autodesk and Hollis Controls added remote monitoring with IoT to provide the security of knowing that treatment is working. Autodesk’s IoT system sends instant notifications which enables rapid deployment of human service if a problem occurs within the cooling tower.

The average GWS customer now uses 17-28% less water and saves $25K per cooling tower each year.  Average cooling tower system uptime is increase by 85%.

Finally, by preventing biofilm, the new system reduces the very real risk of a legionella outbreak.  Water cooling towers can be a source of legionella disease which has no vaccine & kills 10% of those infected.

    Introducing: Autodesk’s IoT Discovery Toolkit

    Since Autodesk launched its IoT service two years ago, our team has talked with hundreds of industrial original equipment manufacturers eager to take advantage of the promise of IoT. Some of these customers told us that they had just heard about this “internet of things” thing. Others shared their frustration after trying for years to implement a connected product strategy and finding it too complex, unscalable, or too expensive. We recognized a common theme – customers need help with the many devices, connectivity and process decisions they will need to make as part of their IoT journey.

    What is product-as-a-service?

    Manufacturers and businesses have typically focused on selling physical products in a one-time transaction. And often, the product is followed by a warranty or service contract to replace or repair the product, which is a service.
