Wearable technology is a technology incorporated into things you wear. It could be anything from a smart watch, augmented reality glasses, a personal health monitor in the form of a bracelet, a shirt, etc. Wearable technology is increasingly becoming part of our day-to-day lives and less intrusive – something at Phideas we’ve been very keen on since our foundation in 2002.
This wearable technology infographic takes a look at the future of wearable technology and how organizations are attempting to address needs that consumers never knew they had. The most well known wearable tech items on the market today are aimed at integrating current technologies and increasing efficiency on the go.
Smart Systems and the Internet Of Things are driven by a combination of sensors and actuators, connectivity, people and processes. GPS location data receivers, eyes and ears using cameras and microphone along with sensory organs that can measure everything from temperature to pressure changes. Networked inputs can be combined into bi-directional systems that integrate data, people, processes and systems for better decision making. The interactions between these entities are creating new types of smart applications and services such as smart parking sensors, activity trackers, smart thermostats, smart outlets, etc. Diverse applications include smart cities e.g. transport and mobility, buildings infrastructure, also health, home consumer and more. Compound applications include smart cities and transportation, smart home and healthcare, etc.
