  • Elaborate the technical specifications in interface with engineering, technical assistance and operational teams.
  • Ensure compatibility and standardization of sensor connectivity with existing MES and reporting systems.
  • Develop a network of partners to ensure sensors development & maintenance (electronics, mechanics, integrators, …)
  • Make sensors audited and certified
  • Support the installation and the start-up of the first serial sensors.
