SAN DIEGO -- Light Reading went out to the ballgame this week. Or, more precisely, we skipped most of the ballgame -- because we are not interested in baseball -- and checked out something really interesting instead: how Qualcomm and the San Diego Padres are using Internet of Things (IoT) technology to improve operations efficiency at the Padres' Petco Park.
With camera in hand, we went into the bowels of the ballpark, to see how Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM) and partner OSIsoft, a big data IoT company, are capturing data from gas, water, and electrical systems in a plan to make efficiency savings of 25%.
