DLT Solution for an Industrial IoT Problem

Performance Based Service Agreement – DLT solution for an Industrial IoT Problem

Tuesday, December 17, 2019 (5:30 PM – 7:30 PM)

 

Details

A large share of every OEM’s revenues come from service and repair, but a lot of time end efforts are wasted in identifying the cause of a problem after a breakdown. Currently only a small portion of machines in the field is IoT-ready, which makes it challenging for OEMs to “point the finger” and determine whether a repair should be under warranty or paid service.

During the course of this event we will demonstrate how it is possible to combine Distributed Ledger Technologies with the Internet of Things domain in order to come up with complex solutions to manufacturing problems that could not be solved using other tools. A number of Industry4.0 use cases will be also discussed and as well as a live demo running at the Chicago Connectory.
