Geoff Engelstein of Mars International brings his tech experience to The Water Values Podcast for a discussion on how the internet of things (IOT) affects the water sector and where he thinks the IOT will affect the water sector. Many of us have heard of the IOT but not many have a great handle on its significance. Geoff explains what IOT is, how it is used in the water sector, and what applications make sense for its future use in the water sector. It’s a great crash course discussion for those who aren’t immersed in water technology issues.
