Excellent article.  It's going to be fascinating to see the varied ways that there will be far more data-driven transactions between machines than between people. Good examples of potential applications in health care, remote control of assets, security and fleet management.  Thank you.

I am seeing this technology at work during volunteer exercises for my county's Medical Reserve Corps.  At a simulated disaster, patients are triaged and the info is entered by a wireless scanner, then transmitted to various hospitals.  This gives the emergency rooms information about the severity and number of casualties to expect.  It's a whole lot easier than manually entering information.

M2M software program can read the data, which can be communicated to farmers via text messages on their smart phones. Information can be like how many cows have been milked, how much milk each cow is producing, etc.
