The internet of things is the wireless connection of common objects to the internet. This tech will be informing everything we do. It utilizes blue tooth technology to transmit info to make changes or adaptations. This tech is so small that it is the size of a sticker and can be placed in anything.
A beacon is the blue tooth tech that takes in and puts out information related to the surrounding objects. Jason Hope, futurist, believes the Internet of Things, IoT, will be transforming the way we conduct business or even run our households. The IoT is improving even air travel.
From one end to the other, Virgin Atlantic’s Boeing 787 is connected. It transmits data to help track and analyze the condition of the plane. Sometimes mechanics are even prepped and ready to correct a problem to keep flights on time. Check in is simplified, because many airlines are now completing it at check out. Boarding passes are electronic and seats are assigned before the flight. This technology will be on luggage tags and many other things to help ensure the efficiency of airline travel.
