The notion of intelligent environments, Internet of Things and smart cities has been around for a while. But now that everyone has a smart phone in his hands this vision seems to be taking off. From cars, refrigerators to parking meters an estimated 50 billion devices will be connected with each other by 2020. This offers a wide range of possibilities for new applications and business opportunities. Our next Meetup in the «Webilea powered by i-net» series will take a deep dive into this much discussed about topic pointing out some of the major technology challenges and most interesting fields of action.
