IoT & Wearable Connectivity Solutions

Breakthrough solutions for human-focused IoT and wearables

The use of smart wearables is spreading as electronics are miniaturized, sensor technology improves, and computing power grows. New materials, designs, energy storage, scavenging technologies and production techniques are driving improvements in performance, functionality and usability. However, as the physical and digital worlds converge into the ‘Internet of Everything’, connectivity has become the limiting factor, or ‘weakest technological link’. It is paramount for power, data transfer and 24/7 availability.

Reliable, seamless connectivity is accelerating technological innovation, boosting performance, and opening up new business opportunities in IoT and wearable technologies. Factors such as weight, size, power density, ruggedness, durability, reliability and ease of use are key considerations when seeking ways of easing burdens on end users. End-to-end wearable solutions that offer seamless integration into existing systems and processes are in high demand.
