The approach of gamification becomes more and more important for the industry. This is understood to mean the transfer of game-typical elements and processes into non-game contexts. The declared goal is to bring about an increase in motivation and the associated change in behavior among users. But how can the (innate) human play instinct be used meaningfully for corporate purposes?
In order to be able to standardize the successor to the now 30-year-old ISOBUS across all industries, the joint working group JWG16 was founded at ISO.
