Re: Interesting roadshow

I know, the idea of a road show is intriguing. It's not exactly like sensors and controls command the star-power of rock stars or political celebrities. What kind of exposure or real glimpse into their automation technologies are they hoping to accomplish? And is this the best way to spread the word to manufacturers--albeit, I do recall seeing a similar tractor trailer zipping by on the highway touting a big Siemens Medical logo. More of the same, maybe?

Given the fact that the Midwest is dotted with smokestack industries, it seems this would be the next great opportunity for sensors, whether they be laser, optical or thermal.

Interesting roadshow

I wonder what type of stops it's going to make? Will this be a series of very elaborate customer calls, or will there be a public and educational aspect to the roadshow? Universities? State fairs?

Siemens has become increasingly visible in recent years with a wide range of promotional efforts that spill over into the consumer advertising space. Is this another promotion that goes beyond direct customers to reach the greater public?

Perfection is a laudable, but ultimately unattainable, goal, even for the world's most successful consumer electronics company. You know the hits; here are Apple's all-time greatest misses.
Siemens' new version of Imagine Lab was designed to help the automotive and aerospace industries meet environmental mandates.
Belden and Secomea have developed a remote access system that gives users a plug-and-play connection to plant assets.
Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
