Grantek to Join Panel at Inductive Automation’s Ignition Community Conference
August 7, 2020
Inductive Automation’s Ignition Community Conference (ICC) will be hosting a Community Sessions Panel featuring Ian Tooke, VP of Strategy at Grantek. Envisioning a Better Ventilator Monitoring Experience with Ignition will be hosted online on September 15, 2020. Ian will join panelists from Flexware Innovation, 4IR Solutions and Pall Corporation to discuss how Ignition helped with the LifeMech project, the effort to build an open-source ventilator designed to aid patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ignition platform is contributing in the battle against COVID-19. Shortly after COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, a network of 180+ of the brightest minds in medicine and engineering assembled to find a solution and developed an open-source ventilator design that can be built quickly, at low cost, using commonly available components. LifeMech, the organization leading this effort, developed an Ignition-based prototype for a novel remote user interface that can display data from multiple ventilators simultaneously, providing nurses and physicians with a faster and safer way of monitoring patient status. This session will bring together contributors to this project made up of end users, system integrators and strategic partners as they discuss this important work and how Ignition made it all possible.
This year’s virtual ICC will include a preview of Ignition 8.1 at this year’s keynote address from Inductive Automation’s leadership team, a live-streamed panel discussion with our VP of Technology and Director of Software Engineering, video case studies of many amazing real-world Ignition projects, and several short presentations from experts and thought leaders from around the Ignition community. This year ICC will be free to attend.
