Scanalytics wants to make physical spaces part of the Internet of Things, and it is part of Microsoft’s new Internet of Things accelerator. The company’s flagship product is an intelligent floor mat called the SoleSensor, which measures foot traffic. It works like a touch screen for the floor and the company claims that it can measure 100% of foot traffic in an area, down to each individual step. The potential for the enterprise is huge, especially in retail, because SoleSensor can measure what part of the store customers are frequenting and even connect with other devices to prompt actions based on customer behavior.
