Honeywell Joins Georgia Tech Internet-of-Things Research Center
March 23, 2017
Honeywell is joining the yellow jackets.
It was recently announced that we will be part of Georgia Tech's Center for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies (CDAIT), reinforcing our commitment to growing our Atlanta presence. This follows Honeywell's announcement late last year that it would create more than 730 software engineering jobs at its new U.S. Software Center and establish a global headquarters for its $10.7 billion Home and Building Technology business in Midtown Atlanta.
“Honeywell is developing some of the world's most advanced software and digital-based services and solutions to enable customers to realize the full potential of the IoT,” said Stephen Gold, Vice President and General Manager of Honeywell Connected Enterprises. “Software engineers at Honeywell work on real problems that impact people's lives every day, whether at home, at work, in a plant, in your car, or on an airplane. We're excited to be working with Georgia Tech's CDAIT on new IoT applications. Together, we can accomplish a lot.”
Honeywell is working to aggressively recruit top software engineering talent to its new Atlanta-based U.S. Software Center. These engineers will specialize in developing software solutions that support Honeywell's offerings, which address the emergence of IoT, including mobile, cloud computing and data analytics, as well as marketing and user experience.
By joining CDAIT, Honeywell is building on its existing collaboration with Georgia Tech and the rich resource that its faculty, students and research facilities represent. Honeywell also looks to enhance its understanding of the many dimensions and challenges of the IoT space through collaborative research and activities with its fellow board members and Georgia Tech faculty and students.
“We are looking forward to working closely with Honeywell's team to leverage their IoT-related capabilities,” said Alain Louchez, Managing Director of CDAIT. “Our goal is to quickly advance our relationship to respond to the growing demands and opportunities in the IoT space. The proximity to the Georgia Tech campus of Honeywell's new Atlanta home will facilitate terrific exchanges and cooperation.”
CDAIT is a global, non-profit, partner-funded center within the Georgia Institute of Technology (“Georgia Tech”) located in Atlanta that fosters interdisciplinary research and education while driving general awareness about the Internet of Things.
