Test Drives

Test Drives

Test Drives are short-term, rapid-engagement pilots for technology end users to employ and adopt Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies. They stimulate IIoT adoption across industry through accelerated implementation. The Industrial Internet Consortium's neutral collaboration platform fosters partnering to address leading-edge IIoT use cases in 3-6 month projects based upon technology end users' real problems.

To consider a test drive pilot deployment, a technology end user may begin by either (a) selecting a test drive proposal from our test drive repository or (b) by choosing to engage in an exercise to define a problem and connect with experts to propose solutions.

  1. Test drive proposals are being added to this webpage as they become available. Visitors may review the choices to find a test drive that applies to their needs. For more information or to take action on a test drive listed below, click the Contact link below and your email will be forwarded directly to the test drive leader. If you wish to learn of new test drives as they are added below, please contact [email protected] and request to be notified.
  2. The alternate approach to the test drives listed below is found in our Industry Connect Service which is designed to assist technology users in developing and deploying IoT projects. Companies seeking solutions can now work with our experts who are experienced in applying their knowledge to solve the complex problems posed by applying IoT technologies to existing processes and developing new business models to generate new revenue streams. The outcomes of the Industry Connect Service may be a test drive not listed here or partnerships from within our ecosystem of experts leading to end-to-end solutions. Technology users interested in this approach are encouraged to learn more about the Industry Connect Service and contact [email protected] for more information and discussion.

Intelligent Video


OVERVIEW: Video will become a mainstream IoT sensing platform as advanced analytics prove to deliver business value. Currently there lacks the ability to deploy at scale or fully protect the device, or data, in transit from cyber threats. This test drive focuses on capturing and processing images for content analysis in a secure, open architecture for cross industry use cases including quality assurance, situational monitoring, behavioral analysis and compliance verification. The Intelligent Video Test Drive has previously been deployed in marine waterway management. Learn more
