‘Internet of Things’ products to grab the spotlight at CES 2015

At the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) scheduled to be held in Las Vegas next week, 'Internet of Things' (IoT) products are expected to grab the spotlight; with hundreds of companies expected to display their IoT-related devices, services and technologies at the event.

IoT products have been on display at the CES events during the last few years, but potentially thousands of new products will likely take the center stage at this year's show due to the anticipation that a broad new market for IoT gadgets is set to open up in the coming years.

The significantly emerging category of IoT products essentially comprises 'connected' everyday devices --- that is, devices which are connected to computers, the Internet or one another; and are generally equipped with sensors that are capable of collecting information about the users of such devices or the environment in which they operate.

To put it differently, the IoT products underscore a fast-growing web of everyday home appliances - like refrigerators, clothes washers, and other household appliances; as well as door locks, light bulbs and home furnishings; and even cars - which have the ability to 'communicate' with one another and with the computers, smartphones, and tablets of the users.

Noting that the IoT category of devices has been "emerging over the last couple of years," John Curran - consulting firm Accenture's Managing Director for the communications, media and technology group - said in a statement that IoT devices will come "front and center" at the CES event this year.
