The International Consumer Electronics Show may have ended on January 11, but the excitement it generated while showcasing the potential uses of machine-to-machine (“M2M”) devices continues to be felt. Vendors displayed a host of new M2M solutions at CES. Two examples include a wearable device that can call an ambulance if an elderly person falls down and a built-in system for automobiles that will apply pressure to the brakes if a car comes too close to another automobile.
There is a lot of hype surrounding the possibilities of M2M, but perhaps no one is more excited than the mobile carriers.
