Consumer Application Workstream

Consumer Applications

More than 100B+ connected devices by 2030 per estimates, driven through Smart Phones along with smart home devices and wellness devices driving quality of life and comfort (and connectivity). B2C market is significantly driving adoption of IoT in the consumer products – wearables, gaming and including Internet of Clothing/Food with smart embedded sensors and also driving previously unconnected people into a connected world spurred by emerging technologies such as AR/VR, Edge Computing will enable new markets in the consumer space. Non-functional requirements focused around data ownership/agency, security, safety and privacy will need to be considered critically as consumer IoT applications adoption increases.

The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Industry Connections (IC) program helps incubate new standards and related products and services by facilitating collaboration among organizations and individuals as they hone and refine their thinking on rapidly changing technologies. See some of the most recent activities related to Consumer Applications below.
