In the closing session of MIPI DevCon 2020, a panel of IoT experts convened to assess the current state of the “Internet of Things” and answer fundamental questions such as, “Is the IoT transitioning from hype to reality?”
Over the past decade, MIPI specifications have become firmly rooted into the core of smartphones, connecting the sensors, cameras, displays, radios and other components that are fundamental to these devices. It is fascinating to watch as these core mobile technologies are adopted by other market sectors — enabling a range of new use cases, unlocking commercial value, and fueling the massive growth of the “Internet of Things.”
Advanced high-resolution cameras and displays are at the core of many new electronic devices, enabling continuously more sophisticated vision-based services and enhanced user experiences. Integrated cameras and displays can now be found in a wide array of devices, from traditional devices such as smartphones, tablets and PCs, to a new wave of connected devices within the “Internet of Things,” encompassing every type of connected device imaginable.
