As we know, The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects—devices, vehicles, buildings and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data.
There are a few well known products and applications that are widely being used such as learning thermostats connected to Internet. Some are still in preliminary phases such as smart fridges able to communicate with grocery stores.
The goal of this challenge is to propose a revolutionary product and/or application of IoT, and suggest the key obstacles (e.g., technological, economical, ...) to get there. We are interested in hearing revolutionary ideas not necessarily evolutionary improvements that we see one generation after another one.
With your response please address the following aspects:
- The next revolutionary IoT product / application
- The main obstacle(s) that keeps us away from that.
- Suggestions on how to remove those obstacles.
If you have a favorite topic, please feel free to suggest it so we consider it in the future Quorum contests.
