Ad Hoc Committee on Emerging Technologies Chair
HECO - All Systems Go!
In 2019, the EASA International Board of Directors approved the formation of an Ad Hoc Committee on Emerging Technologies to address the impact of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Industry 4.0, remote condition monitoring and whatever associated “buzz words” you can think of.
The committee’s purpose is simple: to research IIoT as it applies to the electric motor and rotating apparatus industry and determine what role, if any, EASA should take. The committee also works to determine the best ways to keep members up to date on this topic.
Since then, the committee has regularly met (via Zoom, before it was popular) to discuss various emerging technology topics and trends. Committee members have led presentations and open forums at EASA conventions to help guide members down this developing path.
Over the summer, the committee considered next steps and decided to conduct a survey. We felt this was the best way to get feedback directly from EASA members.
