Internet of Things

AIM’s Internet of Things (IoT) committee provides a forum for members to understand and help shape the rapidly changing landscape of the interconnected world of products, services, and, information. The committee enables participants to lay the foundation for a smarter, more efficient world using automatic identification and mobility technology solutions. The committee is comprised of AIM member companies with an interest in influencing the direction and definition of the Internet of Things, especially as it relates to bar code, RFID and mobile computing solutions.

Chairperson (2017) - Bill Hoffman | Automotive Industry Action Group


RAIN, the newest addition to AIM, was founded in early 2014 to promote global awareness, education and initiatives designed to accelerate UHF RFID. As an industry alliance (much like the Bluetooth SIG or Wi-Fi Alliance), RAIN members and their UHF RFID expertise lend strength to AIM’s commitment to AIDC innovation and technology.

Through both prominent leadership and substantial growth of membership in RFID companies worldwide, RAIN is uniquely positioned to deliver initiatives that accelerate growth and adoption in business and consumer applications worldwide to improve business opportunities and, ultimately, peoples’ lives.
President:  Steve Halliday
