Now dairy industry is completely automated, where as the cows are milked by robots. 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.

We can use M2M in art, entertainment, festival lighting. M2M can be used to make a dance show attractive. Dancers costumes which embraced with lights which are controlled by M2M. These lights are switched on/off wirelessly according to music to match up the choreography.

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.

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.
