Internet of Things Drives New Rapidly Growing Markets from Wearables to the Connected Car, Healthcare and More
Great America Meeting Room 1
16:45 - 17:10
The Internet of Things (IoT) is opening up fresh horizons for a new generation of intelligent systems that leverage contextual computing and sensing platforms, creating new vertical markets. New platforms popping up for IoT include smart lighting, smart energy, industrial automation, consumer and automotive applications—where the combination of sensors using low-power sensor fusion platforms, and short-range wireless connectivity are opening up a variety of exciting end markets. From self quantification to a variety of location-based applications, these are all becoming the harbinger for a whole host of markets from wearable devices to the connected car, the intelligent home and a connected community. There are many standards and platform competing to make these services happen. This presentation compares these choices, and allows designers to choose the most efficient next-steps to make IoT a reality.
