Technology Trends

At the recent ARC Annual Industry Forum, I moderated a compelling session on the convergence of IoT and Smart Lighting Platforms - with a focus on the dramatic impacts and hidden opportunities of these technologies.

Lighting is everywhere, and now, with the impact of energy efficient LED and IoT technology, significant benefits are easily found. This session explored these impacts as well as the use of the lighting system as a communications backbone.

Here are my brief introductory comments:
