An interesting example is the use of acoustic sensors that are calibrated to detect gunshots. Some cities in the United States have deployed these sensors in areas of gun violence and discovered some shocking information. Police departments had historically assumed that residents called the police 80% of the time when shots were heard. And thus the police thought they had a fairly accurate measure of street gun violence. In San Francisco, after the sensors were in place, the police discovered that residents called the police only 10% of the time when shots were heard. In Oakland, California, the 911 call rate for shots fired was only 22%. Prior to the sensors, these police departments were operating on highly inaccurate information about the level of gun violence in certain neighborhoods. With this new information, police can now plan their patrols differently and better target areas to reduce gun violence.

A critical intersection indeed. McKinsey estimates that the Internet of Things has a total potential economic impact of $11 trillion a year by 2025 – or the equivalent of 11 percent of the world economy. As Michael Porter stated, the emergence of the internet of things will force companies to make hard strategic choices. He believes that big bets will be made that are profoundly important to the success of a company, things that we never had to think about before.
