Globalization and innovation (Part 3)

Came across this article on Economic Times over the weekend, which talks about some of the work that the Honeywell Research Center in Bangalore is doing. It mentions some of the innovations of the exact same nature that I have been discussing over the past few posts on the the topic of innovation in developing markets such as India. For instance, Honeywell has developed a water sensor for farmers in India, which caters to the local needs here, and hence is much cheaper than the ones used in other markets. This can now be taken to other markets. Hmm… so, that means, I am thinking on the right lines 🙂
