TE Insights on Technology Trends

Engineering the Internet of Things

The New Value Chain:

IoT Innovation

Change is opportunity; ignoring it is perilous. In the IoT value chain, partnership is imperative to success. Companies that accept and work to surmount the challenges emerging from the Internet of Things (IoT) can traverse the value chain, forge business-expanding partnerships, and build customer relationships of greater value. Companies which ignore IoT-driven change may not go out of business, but may find it challenging to be the best wooden stagecoach wheel maker in a world of rubber tires. At TE Connectivity, we partner with engineering innovators and technology entrepreneurs to integrated connectivity solutions that can increase value across the value chain.

  1. IoT Sensor Market Survey

TE Connectivity (TE) designed a survey for engineers on a variety of topics related to IoT design. We got responses from 180 engineers ... primarily senior engineers with a stated interest in consumer, industrial, and automotive IoT. Our survey explored IoT applications and design methods and then identified common challenges that exist across this space.

Advancing innovation in internet-enabled technology

Building new efficiencies into our daily lives. Smart technology is transforming devices, machines, and networks into the connected, responsive technology enabling the Internet of Things (IoT). To make this happen, manufacturers are installing miniature connectors, lightweight cabling, customized antennas, and multi-property sensors to improve, increase, and integrate data processing, power distribution, and signal transmission in connected cars, electrified powertrains, medical devices, industrial robots, building systems, data centers, communications networks, and more.

  1. Innovation for Today and Tomorrow
