Session I: IoT Makes Schools and Workplaces Safer

10:00, Panel Discussion

Changes to workplaces brought by the pandemic are about more than just smart whiteboards and video conferencing. The IoT is allowing for managers and teachers to provide autonomy without sacrificing accountability, improving the well-being of workers and students and distributing resources more efficiently. Technologies like biometrics, voice enabled interfaces, and remote sensors will make it possible, based on concepts of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML), among other things.

Session II: The “IoT Edge” in Health/Wellness

11:00, Panel Discussion

In the health & wellness sector – where IoT technology investment is expected to double by 2025 – wearables were in some ways the leading light in health/wellness application. Thanks in part to edge compute technology, wearables are now being surpassed by implantables and ingestibles. IoT infrastructure has already revolutionized how care is provided to sufferers of diabetes, asthma, and heart ailments. Expect new applications in predictive healthcare and medications management to come soon with the pandemic as an accelerator.

Session III: V2X is the Future of Connected Automotive

12:00, Panel Discussion

Cars are already talking to various grids but expect them to begin communicating with other cars and even pedestrians in the very near future. Driver assistance systems and predictive maintenance, which alerts owners to problems, reduces costs, and maximizes uptime, have been driving forces, but 5G bandwidth and latency will offer a whole new world of possibilities. Issues like security and “over-the-air” (OTA) provisioning will be paramount.
