The Rockwell Automation SCOPE team is working to identify, assess and develop a viable business application for a MEMS based microfluidic sensor chip developed by the RA Advanced Technology Lab. In keeping with Rockwell Automation's business structure, the team's focus will be on solving customer problems as they relate to an industrial, rather than consumer setting. The team will begin at a broad level, gaining exposure to various industries and their processes, which will then serve as a lead to begin identifying applications. Next, in consultation with the sponsor, the most promising ideas will be chosen based on technical feasibility, potential market value and potential user value. Once the first stages leading to application identification have been completed, we will continue work on the integration of the chip into a commercially viable modular sensing head, with the possibility of developing middle electronics and firmware.
