"How Internet of Things (IoT) is Improving Personal and Public Safety" facilitated by Joe Granda, a tech industry leader including a background in IoT and mobile, will be an interactive conversation with Jeremy Agulnek and Phyllis Lee. Jeremy and Phyllis will share the current trends and innovations in the Internet of Things (IoT) as it relates to safety for drivers and families.
