Innovation comes in many forms. IoT has definitely inspired innovation in areas such as fitness trackers, toys, appliances, and many, many other items. This session focuses on a group of diverse individuals who got together to see how they could apply various technologies to “Innovation That Matters.” From a Solar School that can enable remote areas to have learning capabilities … to an IoT-enabled pill bottle that started as a project to just remind Rhonda to take her medications, and has now become a part of research into an Aging Initiative. Innovation and Inspiration – IoT combined with the Cloud – can make everyday innovation possible; it’s now easier than ever before. This is our story.
