Business Workshop | The Industrial Design of Things – Idea to Market
The process of taking an IoT idea to market requires close collaboration with a large distributed network. If you are developing a product, you will need to work closely with other disciplines for a successful outcome. Through a hands-on activity that explores concept exploration, development, and prototyping, attendees will develop an understanding of the product design and development process.
