Last month in Angers, 300km from Paris, President François Hollande opened Europe’s biggest centre dedicated to “internet of things” (IoT) technology — the gadgetry that enables objects to communicate with other objects.
Innovations from this emerging sector include heating thermostats that talk to your mobile phone, litter bins that connect remotely to refuse trucks and hives that communicate with beekeepers. By 2020, forecasters predict between 26bn and 50bn IoT units being connected to the internet.
