Bringing The Vast Internet Of Things Into Focus For Apparel Manufacturers
As a major new technology trend arising from our interconnected world, the Internet of Things (IoT) holds an irresistible allure in its expansive simplicity: It promises to open seemingly limitless possibilities for communication and information exchange among sensor-enabled objects and smart devices outfitted with applications to receive and analyze the data these objects share.
On the consumer level, this trend has generated several high profile innovations. For example, apparel products can be tracked throughout the supply chain via embedded sensors that carry a digital identity. Taking the technology further, smart fabrics have been developed that are embedded with miniature, washable sensors that track physiological data, such as heart rate and respiration, that is accessible to the wearer via a smartphone health and wellness app.
