As laws have become very strict in limiting device usage while driving, the need for instant, streamlined communication is more pertinent than ever. This is especially true for delivery drivers and vehicle fleet management companies. Solution providers such as Wireless Communications and Electronics are working with transportation industry customers and using IoT solutions to keep their operations safe, efficient and connected with the push of a button.  
Traditional agriculture companies have for years applied the same tried-and-true tools to plant and harvest their crops. Now, organizations from the small farmer to industrial farming corporations are realizing the potential that IoT technology has in the crop growing and harvesting process. This fall, a farm automation project, Hands Free Hectare, successfully harvested its first crop using only autonomous vehicles and drones.
