Connected devices and applications are a key topic at Hannover Messe 2023. Following Microsoft’s recent panel session, several exhibitors at the event are showcasing how they are helping companies in the manufacturing and industrial sectors to implement connected apps to drive innovation and optimise operations.
For example, ASSIST Software is using the power of IoT to support the emergency services via its PARS aid and support project. The Microsoft Gold Partner is carrying out research to develop an autonomous drone solution – powered by artificial intelligence – that would support public authorities in critical situations. The drones are fitted with cameras and use data, augmented reality in Microsoft HoloLens 2 and machine learning algorithms to carry out a range of missions including military observation, alerts and tracking.

Meanwhile, IoT solution provider HiveMQ is helping over 130 companies to connect their IoT devices with its Microsoft Azure-based broker and messaging system. Companies can use the HiveMQ dashboard to monitor real-time data across their devices, which can include everything from cars to drones and industrial dishwashers. They can also control user accounts and device across IoT applications as well as review account subscriptions.
