Abstract: Today, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t have at least one wearable device on them. Between fitness trackers, smart watches, smart glasses, and connected clothing, there seems to be an endless supply of hardware you can outfit yourself with, all collecting data and providing insights into your daily activities.

The concept of Internet of Things has exploded, and more and more companies are looking at IoT and asking how they can extract value from connecting their workers, collecting data from their customers, and implementing real time interactions on the factory floor.

During this session, we will explore the different areas where IoT can provide value, and discuss how leveraging wearables is helping transform the way we do business, and building the workforce of the future. We will look at various use cases, as well as some real world deployments and the positive effects these projects have had in the areas of cost and labor reduction, customer conversion, and safety.
