Transparency Through Connectivity Drives IoT

ConnectedVehicles[4]“For many organizations across various industries, the future of IoT is now. Insurance companies that track drivers’ activities to make underwriting decisions are using the Internet of Things. So are medical device companies that design their products to feed data back to healthcare providers. Industrial companies that use wireless technologies, sensors and data streams to monitor their assembly lines or field-based equipment also are capitalizing on IoT.” [Whirlpool CIO: The future of IoT demands a new IT paradigm].

Tracking drivers’ activities through the Internet of Things? Really? How? Through “connected car” technology.

Increasingly, more and more late model vehicles are falling into the 4G and 5G status line. “Yes, it’s a mad, mad, mad, mobile world. And nowhere is this more true than in the multifaceted auto industry, where car manufacturers that once seemed out of touch and needed government assistance to stay afloat are introducing cutting-edge mobile tech into their vehicles. Detroit and Silicon Valley are no longer worlds apart; rather, they’re forming partnerships,” reports TechTarget.

“We’re going to see consumers be able to use the vehicle like a mobile phone: to buy apps, download apps and use the services these apps provide. A whole new ecosystem is going to be developed around this. this new ecosystem will be built around the proliferation of fourth-generation (4G) wireless. What we’re going to see with 4G is your vehicle becomes your hub; it’s going to be the hotspot of your world.”

The Revelation File is hosted and edited by Wally Wood in Houston TX. It began as a daily radio news commentary over the Sonlight Radio Network from 1980 to 1984 and, in 1985, over KSBJ in Houston, as part of the Christian News Network that Wally had started at the time. The “RevFile” eventually became a nationwide subscription news service to the body of Christ in the late 1990s ... and has expanded still further to include the quarterly "Revelation File News Forum" at Encourager Church in Houston. To receive The Revelation File newsletter by email, send your request to: info@revelationfile.com. For more information about the Forums, see details on the "Events" page of this website, or go to the "Contact Us" page to schedule a Forum event for your church.
