Controlling and optimizing the energy consumption of industry processes, buildings and machines are some of the biggest challenges today. The potential for the environment on the other hand is huge. Referring to the Smart 2020 report, several giga tons of CO2 could be saved by smart motor systems, buildings or grids. Learn in this session, how three of the biggest market players in the embedded world - Microsoft, Intel and Beckhoff Automation - have combined developed solutions to optimize existing facilities with minimal efforts. We show and discuss real-world examples from datacenter sensors to industry machine control units.
