Ronkonkoma, New York, Feb. 7, 2023—Soter Technologies, a leading provider of innovative environmental sensor and software technologies, announced that Derek Peterson, its chief executive officer, will participate in two panel sessions at the IoT Evolution conference. Collocated with ITEXPO, the IoT Evolution Conference takes place February 14-16, 2023 at the Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale.
Derek Peterson will contribute to the “Smart School Systems” session, scheduled for February 15 at 2:00 p.m., to highlight how school administrators can leverage emerging IoT solutions to prevent dangerous situations in schools while ensuring student privacy. The discussion will focus on new software solutions that detect dangerous behaviors such as bullying, fighting, vaping, and overcrowding in high-risk areas, and send automatic alerts to administrators.
Derek Peterson returns to the stage on February 16 at 10 a.m. when he participates in the session, “IoT Video: Seeing is Believing.” He will highlight the use of facial identification and CCTV analytics to detect emotional states and mental health issues in schools and other public facilities. The automation of these abilities enables administrators to implement timely intervention strategies and provide more comprehensive support.
“Recent innovations in sensing and video technologies represent a profound improvement in how IoT and video can improve safety, security, and productivity—in schools, public venues, and a variety of workplace settings,” said Peterson. “I look forward to joining the conversation at IoT Evolution, and describing these new strategies and solutions that will improve both wellness and efficiency.”
