We are swiftly moving into a new world order where “connected things” matter. It is not only about things. It is about people, communities, different environments, goods, services, vehicles, appliances, equipments, and much more. For a technology that would seem like a fairytale for the layman, there is bound to be a level of activity that has never been seen before.
The Internet of Things has revolutionized the way communication takes place between what we call SMART devices. Sharing and accessing information has been one of the key advantages, that too, on a real-time basis. This has led to a transformation in making lives easier and better, for convenience and comfort. In almost every sphere of activity, IoT is making a mark.
The possibilities for an IoT Application Development Company are many. With newer avenues opening up and innovation becoming a key driver, the world of networked devices and services is witnessing a marked change.
Connectivity, Connection, and Coordination are the 3Cs vital for IoT.
IoT can switch on fans, lights, and other appliances at home, time your air conditioner to switch itself off, open your automated gate, send a note to someone about a change in schedule, access a medical report from a remote server in some other country and do many such things that save time and of course energy aka power.
So in a sense, IoT would reduce wastage, save time, energy, and resources through proper allocation. The upper limit of opportunities to deploy IoT technology is still unknown to most of us as experience is gradually being gained. What we know is that many networks can be created across the globe to serve multiple purposes, the results of which would be beneficial for us in the long run.
Industrial IoT or IIoT makes it possible for manufacturers to digitize every aspect of business and get rid of one of the most significant errors-human errors. This extends beyond just manufacturing or operational aspects, thus reducing manual processes and entries. Reduction of downtime and costs, better energy efficiency, and better quality products are a few of the results of IIoT.
In the ESG (Environment Social Governance) Initiatives, IoT can do wonders and help in the collection of accurate data which is crucial. The lack of such information has been one of the impediments in carrying out necessary activities of impact. The role of Sensors in IoT Technology especially in this context is one that can make a much-needed positive in our society.
From Carbon footprint to indoor air quality, there is much that can be leveraged by putting IoT technology to work, in terms of metrics. By documenting the findings, work on optimization of resources and other parameters can easily be carried out.
Forests can be made greener and richer, traffic can be smoother, farming can be made more productive and loopholes in essential services like drinking water and electricity can be plugged easily. The list is endless.
Well, if there is a side of hope and positivity, there is also bound to be a flip side.
How would we manage the connected things? What about the provision for addressing downtime if that occurs? How do we manage data and transactions between all of them?
Time would have an answer as we are going full swing in the aspect of IoT.
That remains to be seen, with fingers crossed. Let’s hope for the best, always.
