Smart Electronic Appliances using IoT
Smart electronic appliances are increasingly becoming available and will greatly help optimize energy consumption patterns, enhance home safety and security, and deliver innovative product usage patterns. Persistent is partnering with IBM® to accelerate the adoption and integration of the IBM Watson IOT platform in this new world of possibilities for connected appliances. Appliances thus gain cognitive and conversational interfaces, can implement various notification scenarios, and can be operated through manual or automated triggers. Furthermore, manufacturers gain visibility into the distribution and use of these appliances and gain control over software updates or predictive maintenance to avoid costly warranty expenses. Engineering managers also get new insights into usage patterns to validate or revise various design parameters, improving their ability to design better products. Similarly, marketers can now offer evidence-backed recommendations for conducting campaigns for value-added services and products.
