  Internet’s evolution is an ongoing process. Besides connecting billions of computers, mobile devices and people, it is now poised to connect various things such as cars, sensors, controllers, TVs, machinery, and electrical appliances, creating Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is the next big thing in IT; it is bound to reengineer and transform everything again -- including business, industry, healthcare, and personal and social life, as it facilitates deployment of many new applications and services that were unimaginable till recently. Gartner estimates that 1.1 billion connected things will be used by Smart Cities in 2015, rising to 9.7 billion by 2020 and the latter also estimates that smart homes and smart commercial buildings which in 2015 represented approximately 45% of total connected things is estimated to rise to 81% in 2020.  

The main objectives of this workshop are:

  • To create awareness on several aspects of IoT and to enable participants to identify its potential, and look at how they can leverage and benefit from it
  • To enable the participants to understand the emerging technological options, platforms and case studies of IoT implementation in home & city automation (smart homes and cities), Industrial Internet, healthcare, Govt., Mobile Cellular and other areas.
  Target Audience
