Once thought of as merely a concept of the future, the internet of things, while still in its early phases, has blossomed into a real life entity that is changing the way the world communicates, offering an unprecedented level of connectivity and ease of use between people and the products that affect everyday life. Connecting people and devices through Bluetooth beacon technology has infiltrated major industries such as, medical and automotive.
One of the newest and most influential ways in which the internet of things is changing the lives of businesses and individuals around the globe is through air travel. In recent years, the conditions surrounding air travel, such as increased security measures and fluctuating ticket prices, have caused consumers to be increasingly dissatisfied with their overall experiences. With the continued growth of the technological capacity of the internet of things, aspects of travel, such as ease of check-in and personalized travel, are becoming increasingly efficient, as many major airlines have begun implementing new and groundbreaking processes.
