The world has been constantly changing! And with the rapid pace at which technology is developing, it will change the world as we know of it, at the wink of an eye. From the way we communicate to the way we perceive and how things work. And now with the Internet of Things (IoT), a promising future, a trendier future and a future right out of a sci-fi movie is no longer a dream, it’s a dream-come-true! So, to repeat the monotone – IoT will change the world, in fact, IoT HAS changed the world! IoT solutions will made the unthinkable possible!IoT devices are much more prevalent than we expect them to be and they bring in benefits in areas never thought of. Here are a few areas the Internet of Things has benefitted the society as a whole:
- Smart Buildings – IoT devices installed in buildings ensure remote monitoring of data such as consumption of energy, water usage and infrastructure facilities. IoT solutions in buildings come in handy when remote locations of the buildings, which are otherwise inaccessible, can be managed and monitored. This also helps real time monitoring and aids in quick resolution of any issue.
- Smart Farming – Agriculture is the most suffered due to change in weather conditions and the misuse of soil. With IoT devices, the moisture content of soil, nutrient levels, health of livestock and water levels can be studied. With remote monitoring, machinery and water levels can be operated, without the need for human presence. IoT solutions provide the ease of access to farm activities without being present physically!
- Smart Industries – Factories handling machinery can be tricky and needs round the clock supervision. With IoT devices, any variation can be monitored and handled immediately. Remote access software and devices to minimize travel will become widespread. This would lead to increased production time and lesser maintenance costs.
- Smart Economy – Business such as Amazon and Flipkart providing us with real time access to tracking and shopping. This is an IoT solution in the field of retail. In the retail space, IoT devices offer real time sale of goods, monitor changes and manage the entire supply chain remotely. In addition, the data is also analyzed to identify purchasing patterns and consumer behavior.
These are just a few ways IoT can help us. As more devices get connected, the ability for remote access and management will become a cakewalk – and that is where we are headed to!
