Emerging Supply Chain IoT Edge Technologies
Wednesday, May 18, 2022: 2:30 PM – 2:50 PM
Join us as we enter the newest applications in emerging tracking technologies. Apptricity’s CEO, Tim Garcia, will provide insights into emerging technologies in real-time asset and inventory visibility, supply chain life cycle management, field services, and logistics operations. We will explore real-time cloud solutions that provide the most transparent, accurate, real-time visibility for asset, inventory, and tracking management by monitoring the best data intelligence and analytics available. Additionally, we will discuss how the “internet of things” (IoT) provides real-time efficiency to supply chain management. IoT represents all devices, scanners, sensors, and machines connected to the internet. Each can exchange data via network connectivity, allowing information about a device’s surroundings to be communicated in real-time. As this technology is adopted worldwide, supply chain tracking management is just one key area where IoT can provide a wealth of data in the supply chain.

IoT Brings Fresh Food Vending to Hungry Commuters
Wednesday, May 18, 2022: 3:15 PM – 3:55 PM
Glory, a global technology company that provides payment systems such as cash-automation solutions, vending machines and automatic service equipment, is piloting smart vending machines that enable consumers to purchase and reserve fresh salads, wraps or yogurts. Commuters who pass through two railway stations operated by Deutsche Bahn in Germany are using IoT-connected vending machines to access fresh, locally sourced food with their smartphones, then pick up their orders when they arrive, while the machine’s 4G connectivity helps providers monitor conditions remotely. The Glory solution includes a Web-based shopping site that customers can use to pay for and reserve food on their smartphone before reaching the vending machine. In addition to providing consumers access to fresh local products, learn how the cellular connectivity in the machine enables it to monitor its own conditions and address any changes that might occur, such as increased temperatures or approaching expiration dates.
Speaker: Dominik Cipa, Director, Long Term Innovation, Glory
