Consumer Electronics

Each day, more and more objects are becoming embedded with sensors and gaining the ability to communicate with each other. From your personal and wearable electronics, devices at home and vehicles, to business systems and community networks, all these are connected with each other via the ubiquitous IP address. The resulting information network, called the Internet of Things, promises to change our everyday lives, create new business models, and improve systems and processes, while reducing costs and risks.
