M2M Challenge 2012 – Revolutionising the machine-to-machine business

Machine-to-machine (m2m) communication can improve Wearable Technologies and make them even smarter. Are you fully aware of that because you are currently working on integrating wearables into a whole ecosystem or are you involved in another innovative m2m project?

If so, join the M2M Challenge ・an international innovation competition looking for the smartest and most efficient m2m application solutions in Automotive / Transport, Consumer Electronics, Energy, Healthcare and Security.
From July 1 to December 31, 2012, innovators from all over the world have the opportunity to submit their latest applications in this rapidly expanding market. Not only will winners receive attractive cash prizes and products, but they will also be promoted through several international ICT networks and on www.m2mapps.com, the ultimate intelligence hub for the global machine-to-machine communication value chain.

Whilst Wearable Technologies are related to m2m communication in almost every possible application, it is the medical market that is of particular interest when it comes to small, unobtrusive, intercommunicating wearable devices. With rising health care costs and the ever-increasing need to save as much money as possible, the remote health monitoring market is set to expand significantly.    Not only must medical devices monitoring certain vital data be practical and wearable, they also have to constantly submit data securely to the correct health care provider without delay. This saves a lot of time in terms of check-ups and can also alert the doctor should the need arise.

With promising applications on the market for M2M communication in general and mobile health in particular, now is the time to start developing and get your slice of the pie known as the M2M market. Please contact Angelika Daniels if you have any questions regarding the challenge or request a copy of the sponsorship manual if you would like to actively promote your commitment to the M2M business sector.
