Our Pillars of Innovation

3D Printing for Manufacturing

3D Printing for Manufacturing

  • 3D Printing — 3D Printing leverages the rapid advancement of additive manufacturing innovation, enabling the creation of complex parts in ways not possible with traditional manufacturing.

  • Naresh Shanker: How 3D Printing Will Change Global Supply Chains — Events in 2020 have made it clear that today's global supply chains leave manufacturers and their customers vulnerable to external risks outside of their control. Chief Technology Officer Naresh Shanker explains how integrating 3D printing into current manufacturing operations will add flexibility and resiliency to supply chains.

Internet of Things

Internet of Things

  • IoT Sensors — IoT Sensors use semiconductor technology to miniaturize the physics and shrink the entire system. Our technology expertise in micro-systems, imaging, and printed electronics allows us to create unique shapes and form factors to enable mass customization.

  • The Industrial Internet of Things — The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly connecting and bringing the physical world online. This paradigm shift is essential to industrial businesses, transforming everyday objects and critical assets into smart, interconnected systems by leveraging advances in sensors, analytics, models, and AI. Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) is at the forefront of this rapidly changing technology landscape.

  • Naresh Shanker: Manufacturing Without Unplanned Downtime Could Become A Reality Sooner Than You Think — Unplanned downtime in manufacturing is one of the largest causes of lost productivity, causing delays, unhappy customers and lost revenue. But what can manufacturers do to reduce unplanned downtime? Xerox's Chief Technology Officer, Naresh Shanker, talks about how IoT predictive maintenance solutions could be the answer.

  • DARPA Awards PARC Contract to Expand Ocean Knowledge — Xerox researchers at PARC are working with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to better understand what’s happening over large ocean areas, both on the surface and underwater.

  • The Perfect Internet of Things (IIoT) Platform — In recent years, we’ve seen an evolution of IIoT capabilities, with advances in data science and more accurate/cost-effective sensors leading to broader adoption of IIoT solutions. Despite these tech advances, some limitations remain. Markus Larsson and Kai Goebel from PARC, a Xerox Company, recently sat down at the Industrial Internet of Things USA conference to discuss how solutions can evolve in the IIoT space to create the “perfect platform."



  • Leveraging Innovation to Mitigate Greenhouse Gas Emissions — Climate change driven by greenhouse gas emissions is an existential threat and a defining challenge of the world today. We are tackling this challenge by developing technologies to enable a zero-carbon future while overcoming technical and non-technical barriers to deployment.

  • Naresh Shanker: How Staying Cool Indoors Warms the Planet — How can we make air conditioning more environmentally friendly, especially as more of the world depends on it? Xerox's Chief Technology Officer, Naresh Shanker, outlines several ways forward.
