Internet of Things (IoT) In The Supply Chain: 3 Challenges

December 17, 2019 / MATT CHABANON

If you want proof of IoT's growing adoption, you probably don't need to look any further than your own wrist. Fitness bands, smart watches and similar wearables have exploded in popularity. These devices monitor the user's every single move while providing accurate, real-time health data. Even cities and municipalities are adopting IoT. For example, Chicago's “Array of Things” (AOT) project consists of implementing sensors across the city to collect data on everything from sound intensity to barometric pressure. This project should allow the Windy City to better monitor and control its air quality. New York is also eager to become a “smart city,” as evidenced by the New York City's Hudson Yards. This project represents 17 million square feet of new commercial and residential buildings, packed with sensors to track data on energy production and consumption, air quality, pedestrian traffic and health activity levels.
