With technology taking over our everyday lives, it’s no wonder why the eighth trend on Gartner’s top 10 trends list is smart spaces, the ultimate immersive experience. Smart spaces are interactive environments where humans and technology can openly communicate with each other in a physical or digital setting. This enables “a more immersive, interactive and automated experience for a target set of people and industry scenarios.” Examples of smart spaces include smart cities, smart homes, and smart factories.
“We believe the market is entering a period of accelerated delivery of robust smart spaces with technology becoming an integral part of our daily lives, whether as employees, customers, consumers, community members or citizens,” said David Cearley, vice president and Gartner Fellow.
At Stefanini, we have a prototype of the smart factory monitored by sensors, integrated with Sophie, our omni-channel virtual assistant, and the IoT platform in our Innovation Center in the Southfield office. We have a prototype of a smart building with sensors across the Southfield and Manila floors capturing data, and sending data to the IoT platform with intelligent algorithms running in the background for automated decisions. We are also working to implement a smart store with specific solutions focused on the retail segment. Learn more about our role in IoT/Industry 4.0 here or contact us.
