In addition to the conferences, workshops and networking events inside 26th Convergence India 2018 expo/ 2nd Internet of Things India 2018 expo, one of the most anticipated parts is the new innovative products installed in a life-like environment. This is where these products rise to the top and be in the spotlight.
This year connected devices took center stage for much of the show, which is certainly understandable considering all the disruption sweeping across different sectors right now. Here are a few of the picks, though in no particular order:
Connected Bike Solution from Aeris
Aeris launched a solution that can turn bikes into connected vehicles at the ongoing IoT India 2018 expo. The connected bike solution is designed to promote safe riding habits. It also can be used to pinpoint the location of a crash victim so that emergency services are initiated without any delay. The solution aims to keep bikes safe by reporting a location in real time. Additionally, the bike owner can immobilise the bike remotely in case of theft. When fitted on a bike or a two-wheeler, the solution will generate a data stream that can help the bike owner track the bike, figure out the location, provide a maintenance schedule, see speeding alerts, and get alerts when the bike enters or leaves a specified area (geo-fencing). The solution can also help service firms that own or run large bike fleets. It helps maintain the fleet efficiently while keeping track of bike usage. Apart from individual owners and service firms, insurance firms can make use of the data from bikes to decide on premiums while offering incentives to bike owners to ride in compliance with traffic norms.
