As the IoT market gains momentum, a key aspect that has been overlooked is connecting employees who can take an action to address the Thing’s communications or status. For example, if a light bulb communicates that it has burned out, to whom does it send the message? The hourly employee who would change the light bulb does not have a tablet or an e-mail address and is probably disconnected from the IT infrastructure.
To address this problem, Theatro has developed a small (1½ ounce) Wi-Fi based enterprise wearable used for in-door communications for hourly workers, connecting every employee to one another and to enterprise information systems.
