Honeywell have announced the official opening of an innovation hub at the Company’s regional headquarters in Dubai. The Honeywell Technology Experience Center is designed to promote knowledge exchange and demonstrate the value that can be gained from the adoption of Internet of Things technologies.
With regional investment in IoT-related technology set to reach $12.6 billion in 2021, up from $6.99 billion in 2018, the Honeywell Technology Experience Center serves as a platform to engage with stakeholders from the UAE and Gulf states, as well as Turkey, Russia, Central Asia, India and Africa. Visitors can experience first-hand how Honeywell supports virtually every industry through its combination of hardware, software and data analytics. Visitors from a wide range of backgrounds and industries can be engaged, ranging from oil and gas, petrochemicals and manufacturing, to smart buildings and cities, transportation, aviation, supply chain and logistics.
Interactive activities at the Center are tailored to industry-specific interests that allow visitors to take control of an industrial control room, oversee the security, safety and productivity of a modern skyscraper, learn how a connected city works, or test their skills at flying an aircraft simulator equipped with advanced connected technologies.
To promote new opportunities while managing threats, the Center is co-located with the Honeywell industrial cybersecurity Center Of Excellence (COE), that was formally launched in February 2018.
The Honeywell Technology Experience Center in Dubai joins existing locations in Washington D.C., and Shanghai, which together enable visitors from around the world to gain first-hand experience of the potential of IoT and learn how industrial digitalization is positively shaping the world we live in.
