Global networking of devices, machines and sensors is not just a pipe dream, but has long since become reality thanks to the "Internet of Things" (IoT). The "Internet of Things" is about to revolutionise our daily lives. An important prerequisite for the functioning of the growing and increasingly differentiated IoT applications is a precisely tailored energy supply. Batteries must last a very long time and their performance has to meet the requirements of the respective use. At the "Embedded World" in Nuremberg from 25 to 27 February 2020, VARTA will show a comprehensive portfolio of battery solutions for the networked world in the Internet of Things in Hall 3A, Stand 717.
