Smart Appliance Project
The Whirlpool Smart Appliance Project developed and marketed smart grid kitchen appliances and management protocols that allow Whirlpool appliances to interact with the U.S. grid system, wifi internet cloud systems, and smart device applications. The scope of work included obtaining inputs from the electric utility industry, consumers, and smart grid communications companies. Whirlpool designed wifi, smart phone, and cloud communications apps, installed and tested them in the appliances, obtained the tooling, and manufactured new Smart 6th Sense LiveTM refrigerators, dishwashers, clothes washers, and clothes dryers.
