The world is locked down and you are at home. You are also online and happy with that. Although we can not meet in person, we meet on screens.
IoT Day started in 2010 and is an open invitation to the Internet of Things Community to set up an event, a lunch, a talk with the neighborhood on what #IoT is and what it means in everyday life for all of us.
This year the entire scope will be virtual.

IoT day 2020
As people stay home practicing social distancing, we are going through a huge shift in three key areas. Sudha Jamthe of #IoT Council explains:
- We are redefining mobility now when are asked to stay put. We don't have AVs yet but have telematics in managing fleets, public transport and rerouting of planes etc and data and AI associated with it.
- Medical devices, supply chain of healthcare PPE, healthcare data sharing with blockchain etc.
- Food production, supply chain, logistics to adapt to demand shifts as people buy in panic, delivery of goods with minimum human contact, indoor agriculture production.
Jessica Groopman of #IoT Council outlines the key areas beautifully.
An example with IoT council members
Council is involved in a COVID 19 solution. Dealing with a pandemic cannot be at the expense of people’s privacy and autonomy. In creating emergency infrastructure, we are also laying the groundwork for a progressive society where people have control over how to selectively disclose their health status in daily life with their peers and coordinate with existing authorities and institutional services.The Disposable Identity Framework is developed within the identity research stream of the Strategy team of Next Generation Internet, NGI Forward.
