Innovation

Digital disruption is here and we’re all affected by it. Engineering is increasingly influenced by these new trends. Start-ups are disrupting traditional hardware products with intelligent devices that leverage connectivity, combined with a slick software user experience. RS Components business model that serves you so well is endangered by the same forces faced by you – our customers. In this Innovation Hub we will share our innovation stories with the hope to get your feedback and exchange experiences.

All companies today must ask if they want to disrupt or be disrupted. Engineers are often the ones expected to inform on technology trends and suggest solutions. Sound familiar? At RS Components we are committed to accelerate in this area. We want to share this journey with you and will use DesignSpark as the springboard for many of our upcoming innovations.

This Innovation Hub will discuss digital technology trends and what the future could look like. The world of IoT/Industry 4.0, Cloud, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain are all underpinned by Data and Analytics. We will share behind-the-scenes insight into select projects at RS, aiming to add value to you in new and unique ways. We will invite you to participate in exclusive proof-of-concept testing and we will share our learnings with you to inform your own innovation efforts. Join us on the journey to the unknown, tell us what is good or bad, what you believe the future to be and what influences your daily life, your industry and the products you design and use
