Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing network of connected machines and objects that can communicate with each other and the Internet to better automate, creating efficiency and synergy. As the machine-to-machine begins to spread into consumer and residential markets, end users are beginning to require methods of interfacing with the network. Biometrics, smartphones and wearable tech are converging to allow for a more accessible IoT.
At the same time, as the IoT grows to control more and more of every day automated life, there is a growing importance for security and regulation. Many experts believe that biometrics and mobility hold the key to a safer and more secure IoT.
