Internet of Things Virtual Event
The Internet of Things (IoT) 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? This virtual event will feature case studies from early adopters. Learn from industry experts, market leaders and analysts who will share their insights about overcoming technical, user and governmental challenges, and how to create effective business models using the power of the Internet of Things.

Creating a Dynamic Manufacturing Environment Through the Industrial Internet of Things
Material flow management is the biggest problem impacting factories today, and the greatest hindrance to their ability to transition to the growing demand for highly dynamic on-demand manufacturing. The problem is that most factories' processes are rooted in the decades-old use of static paper label systems. Revolutionary technology now exists that is transforming the way in which individuals and machines interact by using data and analytics in new ways to drive efficiency gains, accelerate productivity and achieve overall operational excellence. This new approach to managing workflow brings the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to the factory floor by wirelessly connecting machines and containers, enabling them to be tracked in real time as they flow through a factory. This presentation will use specific examples from case studies to examine how Fortune 500 companies are embracing the IIoT to create dynamic, intelligent operational environments that are setting the standard for and leading the wave of 21st-century manufacturing in America.

BLE Beacons Guide and Inform University of Oklahoma Students
The University of Oklahoma (OU) has installed a network of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons to help students navigate their way around the campus library, as well as exhibits of its large collection of manuscripts and first-edition books written by the Italian Renaissance scientist Galileo. Since students are engaged with their smartphones most of the time, the university created an app to encourage them to venture through the library and explore its resources. The app relies on BLE technology to display a student's location as a glowing blue dot on an indoor map. Learn how the system encourages library users to interact with librarians, and how it might be used in the future.
