Imagine a future where machines could talk and tell us what they need––or a warehouse that could actively track not just your packages but also the wellbeing of the hardworking people behind the scenes of the assembly line. Advancements in the next generation of wireless connectivity and mobility are bringing that future closer with the promise of smart factories and connected production facilities. In this episode, we hear from Irene Petrick, Senior Director of Industrial Innovation in the Internet of Things Group at Intel; Pat McCusker, COO of Fast Radius, a company using 3D printing on an industrial scale to reimagine the supply chain; and Sean Petterson, founder of Strongarm Technologies, a company using data to help improve worker safety and reduce workplace injuries for factory and warehouse workers. Make sure to check out other episodes in this series featuring: Arthur Orduña, Chief Innovation Officer of Avis Budget Group and Oliver Cameron, Co-Founder and CEO of the startup Voyage.
