The Internet of Things is conquering the world, already well established in some domains and starting a revolution in others, such as the medical and patient care sector. The new upcoming applications may require other integration techniques to be considered. Enter '3D-PID', developed by Sirris, offering a great flexibility and capacity for customisation, as the approach is essentially based on 3D printing techniques. Discover the four steps of this approach and its advantages here!
