How to Add the Power of “The Internet of Things” to Your Inventions

Details

Come and Learn: Justin Grammens and Rodney Landers will share "The Landscape of IoT". The Internet of Things is not all about making everything connected - it's about making the RIGHT THINGS connected. As an inventor you should be adding connectivity in to your product where it helps your customer.

The Speakers will cover:

· Some of the latest numbers on the number of devices that are expected to be connected in the next 3-5 years

· Decisions you should be considering around what is technically possible and what users will embrace

· How wireless standards from cellular, to BLE to LoRa, are disrupting the current landscape for every inventor of products in the coming years

· What you will need to embrace technology changes as they occur
