Delivering innovative solutions requires a change mindset and robust engagement with all levels of industry –  from the top-tier drivers of the market to the small business entrepreneurs and startup ventures. With IoT advances, everything in our world is getting “smart.” So what does this mean for our first responders –those who put their lives on the line every day? When severe weather is more frequent, fires burn hotter, and terrorism is increasing, IoT capabilities are fundamentally changing the security landscape by empowering first responders to access real-time data in emergency situations that can save a single person or an entire city. The challenge today is how to optimize IoT systems and devices responders need to be interoperable in a variety of operational settings - utilities, transportation, and infrastructure.

S&T wants to work with you to start answering these questions, to build trusted networks, promote standards, and facilitate the adoption of new technologies. Get connected to S&T and change the trajectory of IoT in your community!
