ThingWorx Joins Carnegie Mellon Sensor Andrew

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

ThingWorx is partnering with Carnegie Mellon’s Pennsylvania Smart Infrastructure Incubator (PSII). The ThingWorx platform will be used to gather and manage real-time information communicated by sensors and other connected devices tied to physical infrastructure.

PSII will integrate the ThingWorx connected application platform in a lab environment together with the organizations’ other technologies, tools, and engineering expertise. The ThingWorx team, led by Rick Bullotta, CTO and Co-founder of ThingWorx, will work in the lab with the PSII team to implement and scale the platform as the project moves forward.

Sensor Andrew is an initiative to make Carnegie Mellon University the most connected campus in the world. The initiative will establish a sensor network that will enable the Carnegie Mellon campus to become a living laboratory for real-world infrastructure challenges.
