2015 Podium

Welcome to the 2015 Wellbots Ranking of the Top 25 Smart Products

We call “Smart Product” any connected device that can interact with people, its environment or other devices. Smart Products can provide useful information to their users and in some cases act using this information. Smart Products can embark modern technologies – sensors, microprocessors, software – into known devices or be brand new types of products. Examples of Smart Products are drones, cleaning robots, wearables, home automation devices, and connected toys. They are also called Internet-of-Things devices or connected devices.
