Asset tracking is a challenge that seems tailor-made for an Internet of Things solution. Imagine sensors connected to a tiny IoT processor that can be mounted on shipping crates, or on individual objects lining the shelves of a retail operation or private home. The sensors collect data–location, temperature, movement, sales or consumption details, for example–and pass it into the cloud where that data can be sliced, diced, and fed into a recommendation engine. Tapping into the engine then helps someone make an informed decision based on what’s trending, under what circumstances the product will be consumed, and what to expect when they try it for themselves.
