RFID Journal Virtual Event

Enabling the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things is a broad term being used to cover technologies that give network connectivity to everyday objects, from wearable computers to common products. What's behind all the excitement about the Internet of Things? How will companies benefit from IoT technologies? What will be the impact on consumers? What strategies should companies use to take advantage of IoT technologies, and which technologies will dominate the IoT? During this virtual event, leading experts will answer these and other questions about the Internet of Things.

The Current State of the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things promises to change the way in which companies interact with their customers. New devices connected to the internet will bring greater interactivity and a wealth of new data regarding customer activity. The Internet of Things Conference will focus on how companies are using a variety of technologies, including RFID, ZigBee, Wi-Fi and machine-to-machine software, to connect things to the internet, as well as how they are achieving real business benefits from doing so.
Speaker: Stephen Halliday, President, High Tech Aid

Welsh Museums Enhance Customer Experience Via Bluetooth Beacons
Visitors to the National Slate Museum and the National Roman Legion Museum walk around exhibits that might be difficult to interpret without some help. Photographs and artifacts are often hard to put into context. Printed material posted on exhibits and walls do not do the exhibits justice, since there generally is insufficient space for the volume of content, and it is difficult to tailor information for each specific type of visitor. The solution is an app known as Culture Beacon that works in conjunction with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons. With the app, a user can receive transmissions on his or her smartphone or tablet upon approaching an exhibit, and thus view pictures, textual content specific to that person's indicated interests and video that provides some explanation of the particular item on display. Learn how the technology is adding value for visitors, and how it is encouraging them to interact with digital content during their visit onsite, as well as providing a financial gain for the museums.

Enabling the IoT for Industry
What is the Internet of Things and how does it relate to industrial applications? The IoT is generally thought of as a consumer phenomenon, however there are many low cost sensing technologies, including RFID that are helping to create this connected universe – and are already being used in industry today. Between these intelligent devices, connected communications networks and the data derived from them – just getting started may be easier and more cost effective than you think. Learn more about how to develop your IoT strategy, based on several of success stories from Omni-ID’s Fortune 500 customers in the manufacturing industry. By simply starting small (ie: workflow automation) and phasing in other aspects, such as driving business analytics from that automation and ultimately integrating multiple locations to drive “big data” create business efficiencies, reduce errors and improve process visibility.

The Connected Consumer: How Wearables and Smart Personal Accessories Fit Into the IoT Opportunity
Wearable technology and smart personal accessories have recently been in the news, especially in the areas of smart wristbands aimed at the fitness market, the Apple iWatch, medical cuffs for pain relief, smart insoles to warm your feet, and eyewear such as Google Glasses (recently pulled from the market). It would appear that smart products are being positioned as the consumer entry point, or "connection point," to the Internet of Things. Will these products resonate with the masses? And, if so, what would consumer adoption mean for the concept and vision of the IoT? Learn how sensor-equipped "things" may change IoT strategies and invite new players to the IoT table—namely, consumers.
