The theme will be discussed during Pulire, with a conference dedicated to it on May, 20th at 10.30 am with an International panel. The meeting is a Forum Pulire’s initiative.
In a very important year for Italy, celebrating Expo 2015 in Milan, Pulire 2.1 is becoming more and more interactive and future oriented. That’s the reason why we intend to approach and analyze the ‘Internet of Things’ theme. We want to discuss with the operators how and why ‘Internet of Things’ is changing the relationship between manufacturers, dealers and consumers in a way called ‘connected experience’.
Physical objects are integrated into the Internet to make everyone’s life easier and connected… in one word ‘smart’. These concepts are targeted on professional cleaning. From a technical point of view the Internet of Things (IoT) is defined as the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors and connectivity to enable it to achieve greater value and service by exchanging data with the manufacturer, operator and/or other connected devices. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing internet infrastructure.
Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine to machine communication (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications. The topic will discussed on May, 20 with Mr. Andrea Granelli. He is graduated in Information Techonolgy and then he completed his studies with a postgraduate degree in psychiatry. He started as a researcher at the National Research Council, working for various companies (CESI, Montedison, Fimedit) and McKinsey for five years. Later in Telecom Italy he became AD before of the Internet activity (tin.it) area and then of the research (Tilab) area, participating as a protagonist to the season of the internet economy.
