This will be an exciting week for those of us in the embedded computing industry, as the Embedded World exhibition and conference begins tomorrow. With an expected 30,000 visitors and 900 exhibitors from over 35 countries, Embedded World represents the largest event on the embedded computing calendar.
This year, GE will demonstrate how embedded technology (both hardware and software) is enabling the devices at the very foundation of the Industrial Internet. These are the big rugged industrial machines operating in industries such as energy production and distribution, manufacturing, mining and transportation. These are industries that are just now taking advantage of the Internet Economy, cloud computing and big data and analytics to improve efficiencies and generate new revenue streams. But first, the machines operating in these industries—often in dirty, grimy, remote and harsh environments—must become smarter, and more connected.
If you visit our booth at Embedded World, we’ll show you how GE is making the Industrial Internet real with advanced technologies, products and solutions that are here today. But we’re not alone in this endeavor. We’re working closely with other industry leaders to deliver the promise of the Industrial Internet. One example is our friends at Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). They’re helping us with some powerful System On Chip (SoC) technology that enables us to build smaller, lighter, more rugged embedded computers to enable our customers to build not just smarter machines, but brilliant machines!
Want to see how? This video explains how GE and AMD are working together to build the brilliant machines at the foundation of the Industrial Internet. I hope you enjoy it.
If you come see us at Embedded World, we can show you much more.
Rubin has spent over 20 years in the embedded computing world, in roles ranging from support to sales to product management and even garbage collector. He experienced the huge growth (and crash) of the telecom industry, and he's spent time dabbling in medical, industrial, transportation and military applications. Rubin figured he has so many stories to tell, he should get into marketing and so he is now our Global Director of Marketing for all things embedded.
