Internet of Things: New Promises for Persons with Disabilities

A G3ict Business Case White Paper Series

Researched in Cooperation with AT&T | Published by G3ict in July 2015

Internet of Things cover Over the last twenty years, the Internet has brought a revolution in connecting people through the world, regardless of where they live. Today, the Internet connects objects to objects, and people to objects. The Internet of Things - with home automation,  customized health care, better management of everyday tasks, transportation and energy consumption - provides an extraordinary opportunity for persons with disabilities and seniors to live independent and fulfilling lives longer and in better comfort.
