“Building Scalable IoT Solutions for Outdoor, Rugged Environments”

In this webinar, Twisthink and AWS share how to use human-centered design to determine what IoT solution deserves to be built to meet your customer’s needs, and how to execute on it using the latest technologies in Edge, Cloud, and AI.

We discuss how companies can use this end-to-end process to make their products smarter resulting in increased revenue, ROI, safety, and maintenance.

Additionally, we discuss two real-world examples of how this process was used to:

  1. Help provide clean drinking water to people around the world
  2. Save mining customers millions by preventing conveyer belt failure
