The Internet of Things—sensors and actuators connected by networks to computing systems—has received enormous attention over the past five years.
We expect in three/four years that this new paradigm became an innovation process integrated in all the working and personal area for peoples.
The potential of Internet of Things can be used in:
Factories (Industry 4.0): operation managemnt, data analysis, maintainance, predictive support, integration and automation
Cities (Smart Cities): public safety and health, traffic control and optimization, resource management
Human Health (and Lifestyle): monitoring and managing life, illness, improving wellness and well beeing
Retail: innovation on payment, self-checkout, digital promotions, smart relationship with customers, layout optimization
Outside: logistics routing, autonomous driving vehicles, navigation, avoid incidents
Work sites: operation management, equipment maintance, health and safety
Homes (Smart Home/Domotics): energy management, safety and security, automation, lifestyle renew
Office (Smart Office): organization redesign, smart working, monitoring, augmented reality training, e-learning
and many other things that I want to imagine with you!
