Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE:FSL) will demonstrate its leadership in the Internet of Things (IoT) this week at the ARM TechCon 2014 conference, where the company will launch its Internet of Tomorrow Tour in booth #906.

A high-end truck trailer retrofitted to display more than 120 IoT products and technology demonstrations, the Internet of Tomorrow Tour cuts through the hype by allowing visitors to interact with real technology, real products, real sensors, real chips and real software driving the IoT of today – and the breakthrough IoT innovations of tomorrow.

ARM TechCon is the first stop for this inaugural, 20,000-mile tour that launches a long-term initiative to help spark new ideas and bring the building blocks of IoT directly to the creative minds and companies that are making the IoT a reality. The vehicle includes a broad array of cutting edge IoT products, solutions and reference designs, including telepresence robots, data aggregators, advanced driver systems, wearables, next-generation networking gear and myoelectric gesture recognition technology.

Analyst research firm Gartner estimates* that the IoT will include 26 billion units installed by 2020, and by that time IoT product and service suppliers will generate incremental revenue exceeding $300 billion, mostly in services.

Freescale believes this growth will be fueled by both disruptive innovations that transform established industries, as well as through the creation of entirely new markets. The Freescale Internet of Tomorrow Tour features examples of both of these driving forces.

“ARM technology is central to the IoT, and this year’s ARM TechCon event is the ideal venue to launch the Freescale Internet of Tomorrow Tour,” said John Dixon, Freescale’s Director of Marketing. “This innovative program is all about traveling to and working with designers and engineers from around the world to help them turn their IoT visions into reality.”

In addition to the tour, Freescale’s popular IoT Wall will be located in booth #500. The wall consists of five distinct sections of demonstrations and products, representing the wearables, smart health, smart home, smart energy, and smart cities markets.
