See the Light inside

RespiceSME presented success stories on cross-sectoral innovation at IoT Barcelona

Photonics are a key enabling technology in many fields of industry; they are fundamental to groundbreaking innovations such as autonomous driving and play a significant role in smart manufacturing and energy-efficient buildings to name just a few sectors.

With occasion of the Internet of Things World Solution Congress RespiceSME brought together photonics SMEs to present innovative applications of light technologies in manufacturing, energy/environment and transport.
The presentations shed light on the success story of photonics in industry, leaving no doubt that the great potential of photonics has not been exploited fully yet.
