AstraZeneca to Highlight Helium Usage at IoT World

AstraZeneca is a global biopharmaceutical powerhouse. They invest early and often in technology and systems that help them bring better product to market faster. So it’s no surprise they are industry leaders when using IoT and sensing in their facilities. To that end, led by Marc Harrigan, the Office of the CTO has been building a proof of concept with Helium to deploy temperature and other sensing to critical production assets like lab refrigerators, freezers, and incubators. Using the entire Platform - Helium-powered sensors, Element Access Points, the Helium API, and the Helium Dashboard - AstraZeneca can retrofit existing infrastructure with lightweight sensing to get immediate visibility into asset status and health.

Harrigan, a Senior Business & UX Analyst, will be giving a talk next week at IoT World in Dublin detailing some of their sensing initiatives. It’s called Sensor Data for the Lab and Manufacturing and is happening Monday, November 21st from 16:30 to 16:50 GMT. AstraZeneca’s proof of concept Helium implementation will be one of various sensing efforts Marc and his team highlight. So if you’re interested in how a Global 500 company is using Helium to gain insight into their production and operations, you should attend.
