Abstract

Technology is changing the world today in almost every market and product sector. Consumers are increasingly embracing technologies enabling “people-centric smart spaces.” Smart phones enabled a single device to efficiently navigate the Web and Web-based commerce of purchases and banking, host a multitude of applications, and take and make phone calls, of course. Technology convergence came to the attention of many consumers in the improved functionality of today’s smart phones. Through smart phones, humans can interact with their environment and the IoT. A recent study by Gartner identifies a number of the elements of this people-centric smart space trend that are driving convergence into many products and markets.

Keywords: Technology convergence, 21st century car, people-centric smart spaces, smart phone
