Santa and the Internet of Christmas (IoX)

Since the time of Saint Nicholas in the fourth-century AD, world population has grown from 200 M to 7.8 Bn and is expected to reach 9 Bn by 2037. Although Father Christmas has done a fantastic job through ever faster Sleighs with increasing load capacity, this exponential rise is unsustainable using current delivery methods. Multiple inter-governmental studies have proposed various technology assistance schemes to the elf council. This talk will review some of these topics and how they can impact on the delivery side of Christmas operations. We will look at Wide-Area Cellular IoT based real-time Reindeer tracking, Semi-autonomous last-yard precision guided present delivery and the benefits of an overarching fully connected Internet of Xmas (IoX) solution to significantly decrease the ‘good-behaviour-analysis -> logistic-scheduling -> present-delivery’ cycle to cope with the expected world population growth during the remainder of the 21st century.
