Internet of Things (IoT)

By Ashley

The Internet of Things (IoT) will connect people and objects in unprecedented ways for events.

The Internet of Things is the connection of objects and people to transfer data over a network without the need for human interaction. Sensor chips in a myriad of “things” (appliances, thermostats, door locks, TVs, watches/bracelets, cars, buildings, roads, power grids, dams, livestock, toothbrushes and more) will provide unprecedented efficiency and convenience.

Results of IoT are coming soon in a wide range of attendee experiences. The hotel room will become “smart” with mobile guest room door locks and sensors to determine human presence for AC adjustment/lighting. Smart TVs are already in many rooms. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) sensors including iBeacons can track attendee movements throughout a meeting facility and local area to provide a wide range of assistance such as location-aware information and directions.
