While it's virtually impossible to pinpoint the one individual area where the IoT is going to be most transformational, transportation and mobility is undoubtedly a front runner, with cars, plans, cities and public transportation systems all eagerly anticipating IoT integration.
The annual cost of U.S. traffic congestion $160 billion could be significantly cut down by the introduction of autonomous cars, mass ride-sharing and smart public transport.
The 216 hours a year the average American spends commuting will also be better spent on work or play, thanks to the same factors.
All three will also play a huge role enhancing mobility for disabled citizens in urban and rural areas.
The petabyte of data produced every week by commercial aircrafts is sitting data just waiting to be analysed this insight stands to make for shorter, more reliable and less stressful flights.
When Internet of Things World speakers ZipCar, Lyft, Grab and the Prime Minister's Office of Singapore took the stage to discuss the potential of the sharing economy at CES 2017, each panellist drew from their extensive experience of the sharing economy, and combined to offer a wide range of insight into the development this economy from public and private sector perspectives.
They determined that public-private partnerships would be key the upshot could be "100% shared mobility for entire populations" across countries internationally.
From mass ride-sharing via the sharing economy, to translating petabytes of airplane data into actionable insights, discover how the internet of things will transform mobility forever, at Internet of Things World 2017.

Deep drilling is more crucial to Royal Dutch Shell than ever except now much of the precious resource they're after is digital. Shell IT CTO Johan Krebbers tells us how IoT is essential for capturing data, but is otherwise a relatively small part of their overall digitalization agenda, in this exclusive interview.
In an industry where production yield and efficiency are tantamount to success, quickly identifying and correcting defects in the manufacturing process is critical. The customers of Optimal+ operate in production environments where errors related to yield and efficiency measurements can lead to losses of millions of dollars per year within a single plant. By implementing Vertica, Optimal+ is able to speed up analytical insights, combine data from different productions processes and gain visibility across the whole supply chain leading to improved yield, quality and productivity for semiconductor and electronics manufacturers.
Join Alon Malki, Chief Architect at Optimal+, and Jeff Healey, Director of Product Marketing at HPE Vertica, to hear how advanced analytics and manufacturing intelligence can drive success in Industrial IoT. On this webinar youll learn:
