This session is part of DIF x CE100 Startup Day. A day devoted to showcasing startups and their role in disrupting the market and enabling a shift towards a circular economy.

Anything Connected has made an internet connected sensor sticker that allows any product to tell you when it will break down, by simply sticking it on the side. The sticker measures several different variables, most unique being electricity consumption, which we can measure wirelessly.

This tech enables predictive maintenance in 24 hours and creates the possibility to monitor a range of products including production lines, solar panels and bridges, potentially averting disasters, and preventing the huge costs associated with times of factory downtime. It can also help companies to enhance the lifetime of complex machinery, maximising utility and reducing waste.

By building the sticker, Anything Connected is trying to lower the barrier for companies to explore smarter ways of maintaining their products, in a modular, decentralised way, while delivering huge costs savings to a company as well!
