AIM Promotes Internet of Things (IoT) Activities

Industry Association Actively Engaged in Identifying Emerging Applications

Cranberry Township, PA – Feb. 21, 2013 – AIM, the industry association and worldwide authority on bar code, RFID, RTLS and mobile computing, announces a new white paper from its member companies participating on the Internet of Things (IoT) committee.

AIM's newest white paper talks about how the IoT will influence our everyday life. The Social Internet of Things white paper talks about the effect of the IoT on our lives as human beings from monitoring our everyday life (exercise, sleep, etc.) to how we integrate our social activities with Facebook and other social media. AIM previously published Healthcare and the Impact of the Internet of Things and Department of Defense and the Impact of the Internet of Things. These white papers are available online in AIM's eStore. AIM expects to publish additional IoT white papers on Smart Homes, Education, and Automotive in the near future.

Founded in 2011, AIM's 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. Leading companies, government organizations and research universities worldwide have contributed to white papers detailing where the Internet of Things is taking place and how it is affecting businesses and consumers.

"AIM continues to expand its industry leadership role by engaging in emerging areas of technology, and the Internet of Things is certainly one of those areas,” stated Chuck Evanhoe, AIM board chairman.
