New products on the forefront of tech revolution
From dashboards, to databases, to platforms, to SD cards, to wearable walkie-talkies, innovative digital products are coming to the IoT (Internet of Things) market faster than ever before. IHS Markit predicts the number of connected IoT devices will jump 12% on average annually, from nearly 27 billion this past year to 125 billion by 2030.
As this growth soars, developers will need the right tools to be able to create the solutions that will help move the needle forward and continue the technology transformation that has already lit the fire under the Industry 4.0 revolution.
Each year, Connected World honors new innovations and recognizes a handful of products that are helping to move the dial in any of a number of vertical segments that the IoT touches. Simply, that means the skies the limit. The IoT Innovations of 2018 are designed to acknowledge those technologies that are offering something just a little different, and that might just help their customers achieve something a little special.
So here’s how the awards program works each year. Industry vendors directly or their press affiliations submit nominations. The editorial advisory board of judges at Connected World evaluate individual entries seeking the newest, most creative, and technologically advanced products, services, and platforms. Ultimately, the final IoT Innovations winners have successfully proven that their tech solutions will change the IoT landscape.
This year, there were more entries than in recent years, but only six stood out as truly innovative in the market today. With that, here are the winners of the Connected World IoT Innovations for 2018.
