When transportation meets the Internet of Things

thailand iot transportation

I was in Phuket for the past few days. Being a complete stranger to the island with a language barrier, what helped me get around Phuket was this application called Grab. Grab uses an IoT revolutionised fleet to operate their on-demand services. This has made it possible for people to simply tap their smart phone and have a cab arrive at their location in the minimum possible time.

IoT will impact your productivity for the better

Even if the Internet of Things is still a rather remote possibility, in the next couple of years it's predicted to invade our daily lives like no other technology before. The IoT is expected to change every single aspect of business, ranging from consumer relations to employee productivity. It will impact the economy at large by granting us access to new solutions, such as precise geo-location or remote mobile device management.

Observations: Adoption of IoT in Southeast Asia, 2015

We spent a large part of the year in the cities of Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta & Kuala Lumpur speaking to local enterprises about this (too) broad & (too) overused term: the Internet of Things (IoT). We discovered very quickly that while IoT seems to be very much over/wrongly-used in the English speaking world, there really isn't a direct local translation in these 4 countries.
