The push to create an “internet of things” (IoT) will fail unless electronics firms collaborate more, Samsung has warned.
The potential of the technology will go unrealised unless gadgets and appliances from different manufacturers can easily share data, it said.
This openness will also help people manage the smart gadgets they own, said the boss of the South Korean firm.
Within five years, all Samsung hardware will be IoT enabled, he added.
“The internet of things has the potential to transform our society, economy and how we live our lives,” said Boo Keun Yoon, chief executive of Samsung, during a keynote speech at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The Samsung boss said sensors were getting increasingly accurate and soon would be able to adapt and change as people move around the world.
“It is our job to pull together – as an industry, and across different sectors – to make true on the promise of the internet of things,” he said, adding that the IoT was now a “science fact”.
The internet of things refers to efforts to turn formerly dumb devices such as fridges, thermostats and the like into smarter gadgets that can report on their status or be controlled remotely.
