WHAT is IoT
HOW BUSINESS ARE USING THE INTERNET OF THINGS
IoT providers and enterprise adopters are just discovering the true potential behind collecting and analyzing data from connected devices. The opportunities are endless, and here are just a few of them:
Remote monitoring of patient vitals (for example, glucose tracking for diabetes). With wearable sensors, doctors can remotely track and respond to a patients’ health status in real time. Tracking hygiene practices in hospitals and report real-time compliance data. Monitoring and tracking usage of equipment.
Remote supervisory control, data acquisition and advanced metering infrastructure, performance optimization, energy optimization, safety and security, decrease downtime, predictive maintenance, as well as helping businesses and consumers to manage their energy consumption.
Improving customer experience, optimizing supply chain operations, tracking inventory automatically. For example, point-of-sale scanners on a retail floor are connected to warehouse systems and software at headquarters for automatic transmission of inventory data. Contactless checkout by automatic scanning of product as customer walks out of store. Smart price tags that can be changed in real time based on demand or other trends. Smart shelves in store that detect when inventory is low. Temperature-monitoring sensors check the optimal temperature for perishable products and send alerts when necessary.
Optimizing work routines, monitoring manufacturing and customer equipment, tracking usage of equipment, saving energy. Connect systems and assets to deliver better performance visibility, drive toward predictive maintenance and reduce downtime. Use the data from these assets to identify upcoming maintenance needs. Embed sensors and software into a product in order to track it after it has been sold. Businesses are using this type of sensor to improve product reliability and service.
SMART HOMES AND CITIES
Optimizing energy use, traffic monitoring, predictive asset maintenance. Combat power grid instability by tracking user behavior and predicting spikes in demand to help prevent outages. Smart street lights automatically brighten when there are multiple people in the area, and dim when no one is around. Examples for smart homes: home monitoring (security), access control, lighting control, fire detection - leak detection, energy efficiency, temperature monitoring, control home appliances remotely. For example, your smart TV, thermostat, and refrigerator might all be accessible to control via your personal tablet.
Getting real-time information about fleet performance, tracking usage of vehicles, monitoring maintenance needs. Streamline logistics using real-time data and alerts to optimize delivery routes, monitor performance, and quickly respond to delays or issues as they happen.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The Internet of Things is the environment where gadgets equipped with smart sensors collect data and exchange it over a network. Thus, the system operates on three levels: hardware (various objects enhanced with embedded systems and smart sensors), infrastructure (a piece of software that receives, analyzes and stores sensor data; it runs in the cloud or on a corporate server) and apps (applications for smartphones, tablets and PCs that connect hardware to the infrastructure and enable users to manage smart gadgets).
