ThinkIt. LinkIt - IoT Meetup Series by YourStory and MediaTek
Parking meters, information signals, CCTV cameras, traffic signals – almost everywhere that you look in a modern city, there’s a microchip embedded device / MCU / MPU, connecting to the all-encompassing Internet of Things. Modern cities are run just like businesses. For cities to remain relevant, they have to become smarter, leaner, and more connected. The IoT is helping the world’s largest cities to do this, on a grand scale, and at a phenomenal rate.
According to Gartner Research, 5.5 million new ‘things’ were expected to become connected every day in the year 2016. From consumer devices like smartphones and fitness devices, to interactive flat-panel displays and information kiosks, IoT is seeing huge adoption rates and staggering investment.
It’s clear that disruptive smart technologies and IoT are the future of the world’s major cities that would become Smart Cities. Which in turn means that experienced developers, tech-based startups, operations professionals, engineers, and IT security specialists will be in high demand?
Attend this meetup powered by MediaTek and YourStory to know how innovative technologies developed over last few years along with CONNECTED THINGS start to develop a picture of what smart cities will look like within the next decade.
