The Future Starts Here
Creating standards together to build the foundation and future of the IoT.
The foundation and future of IoT is built on global, open standards. Standards reduce barriers to entry, speed time to market, enable greater value delivery, and free investments for innovation. Our members are at the top of their technical fields and are fueled by the imagination needed to unlock the potential that standards create.
Health & Wellness
The Health & Wellness Working Group aims to develop technical standards and a certification program for IoT device interoperability. The initial focus begins with support for aging-in-place and independent living by utilizing valuable data from connected smart home devices. The Working Group intends to address the aging demographic and leverage the momentum of smart home connectivity allowing elderly individuals to retain independence and avoid assisted care facilities.
Open Standards. Endless Possibilities.
Global, open standards provide more value to manufacturers and end-users. Consumers demand choice and the industry has realized that walled gardens and private ecosystems reduce options. They also increase cost and impact efficiency for manufacturers and developers. Aligning to standards provides a number of benefits:
Access to global supply chain and resource providers
A larger range of interoperable devices
Greater efficiency – no time wasted creating your own protocol or developing for multiple ecosystems
More resources and time to spend on product design, differentiation and innovation
Technology developed and supported by a community, acting as an engineering force multiplier
Certification programs, tools, and marks to build consumer trust
Support and advocacy for a global, open IoT by an established and reputable Standards Development Organization (SDO)
Developing for an Open and Connected World
