American conglomerate Honeywell has announced the opening of an innovation hub at its 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 (IoT) technologies.
Leveraging its global expertise and industrial knowledge base, Honeywell aims to engage visitors from industries ranging from oil and gas, petrochemicals, and manufacturing, to smart buildings and cities, transportation, aviation, supply chain, and logistics.
Company officials said the location choice is based on Dubai’s position as a global hub of innovation and IoT adoption.
The Experience Center serves as a platform to engage with stakeholders from the UAE and Gulf states, as well as from Turkey, Russia, Central Asia, India, and Africa.
Interactive activities at the Center are tailored to industry-specific interests that allow visitors to take charge 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.
The 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.
