From one Expo to another, from San Franciso to Barcelona

A few weeks ago we were at GigaOm Mobilize event in San Francisco where the trend was “Everything Connected”. You can watch the recorded sessions here and see how the Internet of Things is changing many businesses and companies, from General Electric to Farmers in the US.

It was our first show in USA and had some troubles with the logistics and the US customs. Our beautiful Smart City demo made with Legos and a RaspberryPi was deconstructed during the shipping and delayed by insufficient information on an import form. It is not that easy to declare this shipping contain!

This how our package arrived:

But after just one hour of Lego assembly work, the result was this:

Next week Carriots is attending Smart City Expo WorldCongress in Barcelona, 19-21 Nov . Since Carriots HQ is located in Madrid, a short trip to Barcelona, just 2h30min trip in high speed train, is jet-lag free! Come visit us there and you will be able to see our Lego Smart City and talk to part or team.

Our Development Director, Javier Pastor, will also report from there how the Internet of Things is one of key technologies to create Smart Cities. Stay tuned to this blog to read it.

During our visit to Barcelona we will also gather with the group IOT-Barcelona to check what is going there. All the talks are in English, so you have no excuses to miss it.
