2- Discover some excellent new speakers and explore new discussion topics

There are some excellent speakers discussing new business models for IoT; Industry 4.0, factories of the future and how companies of any size can – and should – get involved; the revolution in autonomous and connected vehicles, and many many more. The keynote address will be given by Hugo Fiennes, CEO of Electric Imp. Hugo led the hardware team at Apple for the first four generations of the iconic iPhone, before moving to Nest where he helped to build the Nest thermostat. It was during his time at Nest that Hugo realised connected devices were going to change the world for the better, but only if they were secure, maintainable, and flexible, and so Electric Imp was born.

3- Explore the large demonstration and exhibition zone

More than 40 companies will be exhibiting (Including European Circuits), from SMEs to large companies and university research groups with near to market technology. All of the organisations bring demonstrators, new products, tech and gadgets for you to see and try out.

4- Be part of a growing community in Scotland and the UK for sensing, imaging and IoT

Now in its fifth year, the CENSIS Tech Summit brings delegates together for a single day of presentations, exhibitions, discussion and networking in the sensing, imaging and IoT space. This year’s theme is ‘disruption and disruptive technologies’. Almost 400 delegates attended in 2017. Share what you are doing in this space, and connect in to the full supply chain for sensors systems and IoT in Scotland on a single day.

Here’s some feedback from delegates from 2017:

  • ‘I was impressed with the agenda and quality of topics. It was great to see such a dynamic technical industry in Scotland.’ Thales UK
  • ‘The quality of people approaching our stand was top notch. CENSIS is getting it right with IoT.’ Smart Compliance
