This year, a new edition of IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) is held in Barcelona from October 29 to 31st.
The Internet of Things World Congress is here to present all the innovations regarding transport, open industries, energy, manufacturing, healthcare and of course, Artificial Intelligence among other areas.
Most companies using the Internet of things have discovered anoptimistic return on their investment in advanced. This year, Spain, the host of the 2019 Congress, is among the top five European countries that invest most in this field, behind Italy, the United Kingdom, France and Italy and as always, Germany.
