WEBINAR: Sensor-Driven Apps: The Future Of Customer Experiences

June 18, 2014


Most apps are dull. Sensors can bring them to life. Sensors are data collectors that measure physical properties of the real world, such as location, pressure, humidity, touch, voice, and much more. You can find sensors just about anywhere these days, most obviously in mobile devices that have accelerometers, GPS, microphones, and more. You can also find them in planes, trains, automobiles, and coffee-makers, too. But most applications barely use them to the fullest extent possible.

In this Webinar, Forrester's Mike Gualtieri and Rowan Curran provide a definition and foundational taxonomy of sensors that you can use to identify sensor opportunities for you to design, develop, and deliver more useful and engaging apps for your business partners and customers.


  • Sensors Uniquely Enable Three New Tiers Of App Functionality

  • Cool Examples Of Sensors And Apps
  • Designing Apps To Leverage Sensors: Best Practices

Key takeaways:
