Promising IoT projects
Smart technologies are more and more rapidly integrated into human life at the everyday and commercial level: according to Gartner analysts, IoT expenditures exceeded $3.5 trillion in 2017. Therefore, major IT companies focus on the development of Internet of Things projects.
One of the leading global firms, which actively advance smart technologies, is the manufacturer of electronic devices – Intel. One of the most successful IoT projects involving Intel is the development of a portable smart device called Samsung Gear 2. Besides, Intel’s Internet of Things projects are aimed at the enhancement of smart device security.
This trend is also evolving in Russia: IoT projects are related to smart homes, portable devices, and robotics.
