Internet of Things
AIM’s Internet of Things (IoT) Committee provides a forum for members to understand and help shape the rapidly changing landscape of the interconnected world of products, services, and information. The committee enables participants to lay the foundation for a smarter, more efficient world using automatic identification and mobility technology solutions. The committee is comprised of AIM member companies with an interest in influencing the direction and definition of the Internet of Things, especially as it relates to bar code, RFID and mobile computing solutions.
The mission of the committee is:
AIM defines the Internet of Things as a global network infrastructure that links physical and virtual objects through the use of interoperable data capture and communication methods. Standards-based object identification, sensor and connection capability provide for the development of independent cooperative services and applications characterized by a user-defined degree of autonomy.
This definition is slightly different from others, yet it helps explain how AIM's members work to provide the information and technology to enable IoT.
With governments around the world making significant investments in developing policies and technologies for the next generation of the Internet of Things, AIDC suppliers cannot afford to sit on the sidelines and just hope for the best. AIM's IoT committee gives you a voice in helping shape and direct policies to properly leverage AIDC technologies to their fullest potential.
AIM is currently working on several projects related to the IoT. These include:
