Vision of the company w.r.t. the Internet of Things: Four key mega-trends that would drive the world of intelligent connected devices would be: energy efficiency, smart devices (tablets, smartphones etc.), security and healthcare. Pieter Hooijmans, vice president – R&D and Strategy at NXP, picked up on this theme when talking about ‘Technologies for the Internet of Things’, saying that currently, most IoT devices are mains-connected, power-hungry and driven by bandwidth.
