Imagine the possibilities when sensors and RFID tags are cheap enough to justify putting them on almost anything you might like to track -- food, waste items, any and all retail products for inventory management & automated purchasing, and of course human beings, for monitoring vital signs, to expedite emergency response, etc. At a higher level of sophistication, where the "thing" has some intelligence built in, we have other possibilities like intelligent vehicles & roads that communicate with each other to improve safety and minimize traffic congestion. Those are just a few examples of the possibilities, but there are many more.
