IoT is transformational to systems, devices, technologies and applications—across industry and around the world—driven by:
GS1’s “Global Language of Business” connects the physical and digital worlds. Identification of objects, assets, locations, etc. and automatic data capture are powered by GS1 barcodes and EPC/RFID. GS1 standards for data sharing enable interoperable, trusted and transparent data which are foundational to unleashing IoT capabilities.
GS1 also provides a trusted foundation for the responsible use of the technologies behind its standards—paving the way for the future of IoT by providing best practices for risk assessment and data protection.
Blockchain is one of the most talked-about new technologies—moving beyond cryptocurrencies and emerging as an enabler for traceability, especially in food safety applications.
