Enabling the future of connected products with IoT cloud service

Autodesk has released Autodesk SeeControl, an easy-to-use, protocol agnostic platform powering the Internet of Things (IoT) that is claimed to allow customers to capture, analyse and use data from remote products. SeeControl is designed to optimise manufacturers’ existing products and capture the intelligence required to offer their customers new services.

With the addition of SeeControl, Autodesk has bolstered its cloud-based product innovation platform with analytics that is said to enable its customers to achieve smarter, more predictive monitoring and achieve greater competitive separation.

“Autodesk has moved aggressively to further develop SeeControl by connecting it with core Autodesk services such as 3D visualisation,” said Brian Roepke, senior director of Product Lifecycle Management and Internet of Things at Autodesk. “Bringing the live data from SeeControl into our engineering tools will better inform the next generation of designs and empower SeeControl customers in ways that weren’t previously possible before.”

Autodesk SeeControl is said to allow manufacturers to monitor how their product performs in the real world and uses live data to optimise future versions. Users can keep products running at peak levels, identify potential for failure before it happens and schedule maintenance downtime when it is least disruptive. Ultimately, manufacturers can bring their customers a level of enhanced services based on information about real world product performance and consumption.
