In 2018 IoT connected the unexpected
IoT Became IoUT-It is an exciting time in the IoT space. And if we’ve learned one thing, it’s that our only barrier to innovation is our own imagination.
In 2018, IoT connected the unexpected – like prosthetic limbs and tectonic plates – to improve daily life with smart solutions. Looking ahead, I believe we’ll see 2019 continue leading and delivering IoT’s potential.
But, here’s a look back at a few unexpected things IoT made a bit “smarter”:
You better believe IoT connected bees. More specifically, their hives.
Using AT&T’s DataFlow capabilities, YHY Group is piloting a solution that tracks a beehive’s humidity levels, temperature and other aspects to ensure optimal hive health. Our capabilities provide a new way to track data for YHY Group and they anticipate continued enhancement of the solution in 2019.
2. Robot couriers
Looking for reliable delivery? Call your friendly neighborhood robot. We are providing the connectivity for Marble Robot, who is creating a fleet of robots to deliver groceries and package goods in ultra-urban environments.

3. Office furniture
Are you tall and constantly hitting your knee against your desk? Or small and in a never-ending battle with your chair to achieve an optimal height?
Well now, whether you’re at your desk or another work station, your office space can be automatically tailored to you. We are helping Herman Miller create smarter workplaces with connected office furniture all around the world. Employees can not only improve their health and posture, but get data on how desks, tables and chairs are used to help organizations maximize their asset usage.
4. Porta potties
Did you know, one of the biggest deterrents to keeping construction crews staffed are bathrooms? That’s why the AT&T Foundry went to work with a major construction company to develop a battery-powered IoT device that helps ensure the onsite porta potties stay clean.
