One of the most important technologies that will connect all sectors will be Internet of Things (IoT). With 1.9bn devices expected to be connected in India alone, by 2023, IoT and related technologies assume relevance of significant proportions. Across sectors we will see energy, power grids, vehicles, homes, entire cities and manufacturing floors, computers and mobile devices being connected.

Leveraging its position as a multi-disciplinary organisation, IET India launched its IoT panel on February 20, 2015 with Dr Rishi Bhatnagar (President – Aeris Communication) as the Chairperson. The panel, being a first of its kind in India, focuses not only on technology but the application aspect of IoT in various segments.
