Carrier Management Q3 2021

Carrier Management Magazine • Quarter 3 2021 Edition

A decade ago, most of us couldn’t have imagined that our phones could detect a car crash, that sensors worn by industrial workers could flag movements that might result in injuries or that an Internet-connected device could alert police to an in-progress armed attack at a specific location.

Those connections (and more) are described in the “Getting Connected” feature of this edition, compiled by Guest Editor Matteo Carbone.

Carbone is passionate about the idea that insurers, harnessing the capabilities of the Internet of Things, will create a safer world. Serving as director of the IoT Insurance Observatory, he works with global insurers and reinsurers to highlight the possibilities of using IoT for real-time risk mitigation and to incentivize changes in risky behaviors.
