The number of things connected to the Internet now exceeds the total number of humans on the planet, and we’re accelerating to as many as 50 billion connected devices by the end of the decade. The implications of this emerging "Internet of Things" are huge. Now imagine using PTC’s ThingWorx application to connect your FIRST robot to the “Internet of Things”! What could you do with all the data coming off your robot’s sensors? Now imagine if in the game you could see information coming from your alliance’s robots in addition to your own. How would you play the game differently? Come get on board early to learn about this new technology and let’s see what the “Internet of Things” can do for FIRST Robotics.

PTC is proud to join forces with FIRST to develop the Internet of Things engineers and innovators of tomorrow! Starting in 2015, PTC will be donating ThingWorx to FIRST teams in addition to Creo, PTC Mathcad and Windchill.
