The Internet of Things—the extension of Internet connectivity into physical devices and everyday objects.
In broader terms, the Internet of Things means that all items we use on a daily basis will be interconnected, able to exchange data, and optimized to fit our preferences. This opens a wide range of opportunities in many fields, including transportation, healthcare, workplace, and retail.
Here are the two most common applications of IoT:
• Data gathering and sharing through sensors. These devices can collect environmental, motion, and other data and share it with selected users in real time. Additional information will enable quicker and more informed decision making.
• Acting based on collected data. IoT-enabled machines will be able to initiate commands on their own - this way, humans will be able to manage technology from a distance.

2. Optimizing product usage

Moreover, all insights during the run of the product will be collected and transferred back to the company’s server. When it’s time to design a new lineup, all the gathered data will prove useful.
3. Monitor and predict in-store wait times
Long lines at cash decks are often a reason for low customer retention rates. It’s not just the wait that leaves the customer frustrated so much as not being able to predict the amount of time they will spend waiting.
