Sasidhar Yalavarthi

Smart Manufacturing Ecosystem Manager



Sasi works with manufacturing device and software partners to accelerate Industry 4.0. No one knows exactly what the factory of the future will look like, but we do know it will be wireless and automated. And it requires an ecosystem approach.

To this end, he collaborates closely with device partners to connect existing devices through cellular connectivity and educate manufacturers on building smart devices with built-in 4G/5G connectivity. With the data collected from smart devices, he works with software partners to extract insights.

Sasidhar has a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology(IIT), Kharagpur. He calls himself a global citizen and worked in multiple countries: Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland and India. Volunteering for the Red Cross in Geneva as a data engineer sparked an interest in cloud computing and artificial intelligence. Currently he is pursuing a Masters in Machine Learning from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm.
