Internet of things promises to innovate customer experience by allowing objects embedded with communications technology to transfer data over a network, helping them “communicate” with each other. For example, car sensors can notify the driver if the vehicle’s condition is alarmingly dangerous; a washing machine’s status can be accessed via Wi-Fi; and your package or delivery can be tracked anywhere in the world in real time.
To put it simply, we will be able to communicate with all sorts of devices as long as they are connected to the internet.
With the continuous rise of the tech industry in the Philippines, major companies and start-ups are catching on the new revolution that this type of platform has to offer. The IOT Summit aims to drive more opportunities to this unceasing movement of IoT in the country, as well as prepare the industry and community in the foreseeable future, where most devices will also take part to this one of a kind technology.
