Rapid Prototyping of Smart Products for IoT with a Designing Platform for Social Manufacturing

The aim of this presentation is to introduce Generative Design Platform (GDP) developed in the European funded iPRODUCE project and its application to the prototyping of smart products in the IoT area. With GDP a design is personalized by parameters collected from diverse participants. A use case shows how rapid prototypes help to evaluate design, IoT functionality with different user interaction at early phases by connecting a physical prototype to its digital representation.
This approach enables collaborative customer participation in the prototyping of IoT products. The virtual prototype simulates design decisions, and the remote access facilitates collective prototyping.


  • Basic knowledge about prototyping, general knowledge about IoT


  • We will present our work in progress. So, we will appreciate any experience exchange about IoT prototyping, collaborative contribution to design and virtual/remote test
