IoT applications in music industry help in live concerts by easing the entry to the venue through a wearable ticket or bracelet, or in finding a friend in the swarm of attendees.
FREMONT, CA: Imagine a throng of concert-goers having to push their way into an already overcrowded place and having to stay in a long security line to enter the concert place. The experience sounds too fussy. So, to eliminate some of the issues, IoT has made its way into the music industry.
Below are a few explorations of IoT applications in the music industry.
In live concerts, would people like:
• Wearing a coupled IoT bracelet that pulsed in time according to the music being played.
• Breezing through the security line and reaching the venue in less than five minutes.
• Finding a friend quickly amidst the bustling crowd just by wearing a bracelet or ticket.
IoT makes the above things possible with its integration in a live music concert. The system acts as a mechanism to enhance the audiences’ experience, boosting fan and artist relationship along with logistics for venues and arenas on the concert day.
With the existing state of technology, wearable devices are unlocking many of the use cases, of which two are:
• Breezing Through the Entrance
When technology that assists in cutting down on the concert wait times becomes mainstream for all types of events like sports, culture and, art, then the stress of long lines will eventually disappear. Attendees can purely slip through the entrance with the help of the wearable ticket if put in place. The card facilitates people to walk through the security line and enter the concert. Upon bypassing a sensor, the system receives the ticket information from the wearable equipment.
• To Find Friends in the Crowd
As the advancement in the Bluetooth continues, the ability to track the assets indoors with high-accuracy becomes a reality; especially finding friends in a crammed concert becomes a much easier task. The use case can be achieved with wearable Bluetooth devices offering more potential that the wearable ticket. Attendees with bracelets can be tracked through an indoor positioning system, and anyone having access to view their friend’s location can do so via a phone app.
