The world is getting smaller as we are increasing our reach in almost all sectors. The world we have been dreaming of where things around us are getting smarter and making our lives easier is getting here. There are more connected things on the internet than people. From Healthcare to Transportation, education to water management everything is getting connected on the internet. In 2020 we had tens of billions of devices on the internet and the heat is on. Here’s where the Internet of Things (IoT) comes into action.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has limitless potential, not only enabling billions of devices to connect simultaneously but also to leverage a large amount of ordered and actionable data which has the potential to change the world. Automate business, solve current problems, predict upcoming ones, and open completely new streams of revenue and employment.
The current impact of IoT
The manufacturing sector is having a more comprehensive benefit of IoT. Enterprises save 4-5% of the total cost relatively. Smart homes with smart applications provide us with features of the automated kitchen, controlling TV volume, dimming the lights, AC maintaining the temperature as per the atmosphere, smart refrigeration, small home cleaning devices, and all other devices connected to your phone or computer and you can control with a click.
Who owns Data owns the World.
With billions of devices connected, the amount of data generated will be enormous. Devices connected with the Internet of things can monitor real-time data, store it, transmit it and retrieve it at any given time. Sensors will collect data on temperature, amount of rainfall, air quality and will be used for proactive prediction and occupant comfort issues and accurate weather prediction.
Data about the healthcare of a particular region, amount of traffic in a city, amount of waste produced, track the amount of electricity consumed by a property, the number of people visiting a mall or garden will eventually help us build hospitals and improve healthcare, develop highways and flyovers, deploy recycling factories, construct recreation areas for the citizens and have better functioning and management. With proper use, development is all about data and it is the same in reverse.
The priority here is to reduce energy consumption, have effective resource management and raise the standard of living and comfort. IoT and data analysis will help us achieve preventive and predictive upscaling and maintenance of equipment and resources.
We discussed general use cases of IoT, let’s look at the future it brings.
Traffic Management and Smart Parking
With IoT sensors, traffic engineers can optimize the time of traffic lights and manage traffic effectively. Automatic Sensors in the parking lot can detect parked cars and send data to microcontrollers and mobile apps to find parking spaces close to your location.
Sensors can turn off lights where there are no pedestrians or vehicles. Can adjust the brightness as per requirement and provide optimum lightning and save a good sum of electricity.
IoT sensors can monitor levels of garbage to be collected, amount of garbage generated in a particular area so that to arrange the proper size of bins, optimizing truck routes, and trash collection.
There are other applications of IoT in smart cities like Outdoor Surveillance, Monitoring the health of structures, etc.
IoT for Manufacturing Industry
Predictive preparing and asset tracking
Through IoT-driven equipment, gadgets and sensors we can determine the current condition, warning signs, repair requirements, etc. Gadgets connected with Mobile or PC can help in asset tracking, help us calculate usage, check availability of finished goods, it can shorten the idle period.
Remote Production Control
Using BAAS( Backend as a Service) you can collect and check data of your industry devices like pipes, machines, valves, and keep track of them on the move. Industries like, telecommunication, power, oil, and gas are already using the benefits of IoT.
IoT driven devices can eliminate the cost related to staff, delivery vehicles, along with autonomous monitoring of fuel costs, inventory diagnosis can provide benefit on insurance payments.
Other Significant areas of impact are:
Devices at your home, your gadgets can track your health and get you notified and arrange before you fall sick. It would be easy to diagnose as the track of your health, food you ate, your sleep cycle will be already present. Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is an example.
IoT sensors will determine the moisture of the soil and will regulate the water flow accordingly. They will also detect the requirement of pesticides, fertilizers and will monitor the threshold, and can also suggest which crop to grow next as per previous data.
Through GPS devices can locate goods, estimate the time of arrival, monitor warehouse conditions, and other factors. Near Field Communication (NFC) payment enables customers to use contactless payments via phones. Sensors can collect images, videos, and audios and suggest better layout and product preferences based on customer preferences.
IoT Products of SMARTINFOLOGIKS
We are determined to reach the clients and technological needs with dedication and determination. Here are our IoT and Connected Intelligence products.
Battery Insights (BIS)
Due to irreversible physical and chemical changes, the battery’s performance deteriorates as time passes. Through testing and measuring batteries performance we strive to make the process of acquiring and analyzing data painlessly as we capture data automatically and let you visualize.
Connected Warranty management system (CWM)
CWM is a next-generation warranty management system that integrates Manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, customers to boost the warranty process, improve product quality and reduce cost. These not have been the only primary goal of the companies, it is the root of evaluating Total Cost Ownership (TCO).
MonitorBEE – Device Monitoring
To generate business process integration with a feedback loop, real-time communication, and meta-data processing, MonitorBEE connects all smart devices and 3rd parties in real-time. Monitor devices, processes, incoming and outgoing data, managing triggers, alerts, all in real-time ensuring efficiency and availability of all connected devices.
