Machine-2-machine (M2M) comes with the promise of e.g. 3-5 devices per person and brings back growth opportunities in times of wireless saturation in many countries in Europe, Asia and US.
But the classical M2M systems mainly focus on remote monitoring and control of systems and devices, the access to the M2M system is limited to trained professionals only.
How will M2M change, and how does M2M need to change, when end users become an integral part of the M2M scenarios, as in vehicle telematics, wireless healthcare or retail and automation. The end user interfaces to the system, he might own parts of the M2M system or he has strong dependencies to its successful functioning.
