LUDOVIC LE MOAN, CONNECTED DEVICES
Créative France is a story that continues to unfold; in this case embodied by a new era of devices that are transforming the way we live and making life easier—a new generation of versatile objects that are changing the face of everyday living.
This is a tale of connected devices; an Internet of Things (IoT) that showcase smart, sophisticated design. Design à la française. France was the leading European country and the number-five nation in the world represented at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2015. It has excelled in connected devices through companies with an ability to design and manufacture products that are smart, stylish and extremely well made. France has successfully fostered a real IoT culture embodied by its Cité de l’Objet Connecté tech hub in Angers and an industrial policy that supports the field and the many projects underway. One shining example is Sigfox, a network communications firm specialising in the Internet of Things, founded by Ludovic Le Moan. Sigfox is now the standard bearer for connected devices in France. This is a tale of technology that brings together ideas, desires and devices to make life easier for everyone; it is a story of solutions that bring objects to life.
