Iot and Its Impact on Various Industries
The Internet of Things has the capability to alter the world as we know it; it is the key to rapid change and progress. In fact, it will have a greater impact in revolutionizing the world than the internet did!
Internet of Things – a brief
Internet of Things is the buzz word everywhere – at work, off it, in business circles and so on. In simple terms, it is all about connecting any device that can be turned on or off to the internet. Imagine the capabilities of such a system, the very idea brings up a whole new scheme of things of gargantuan proportions. Can you imagine the implications of having such a thing for your business? Simply connecting all the electronic devices will transform your business to unimaginable heights and here’s why!
Intelligence is the way forward and there is a lot of emphasis on business analytics and intelligence across industries today. IoT for electronic devices will set up an environment where all the systems are interconnected from your coffee machines to manufacturing equipment and you can monitor, oversee and have total control over everything. Such a cognitive and highly connected system can accelerate your business’ growth and enable quicker decision making, tighter operational control and workflow controls.
As leading Android App Developers in India, we are tremendously excited about IoT and its implications for taking businesses forward particularly in wearable technology and home automation. IoT, as we have mentioned, has a lot impact on various industries from the home automation area to the automotive industry. Let us look at a few of them in this blog.
IoT is the way to go for home automation
Home automation is something that has become the focus of homeowners today what with security concerns and elevated comfort levels. With IoT, one can connect all your home appliances and systems to the internet and monitor things while also getting things ready even before one enters their home or office space and here’s how. Such systems can help a person turn on the AC, coffee pot and anything that is connected to the intelligence system and set up a warm and welcoming atmosphere even without being physically present! This is one of the main reasons for the popularity of such systems and this is only set to grow within the next couple of years.
What can IoT do in the home space?
- Increased and improved security (which is the primary focus in the home space)
- Makes appliances smarter
- Warm and cozy home environment
- Saves energy and thus contributes to money saving (Don’t forget the environmental impact of saving energy!)
IoT for electronics is set to revolutionize industries
Electronic devices are present everywhere today particularly so in industries and we as leading Android App Developers in India believe that the IoT is set to make drastic changes in the way things have been happening since age. Take manufacturing for example, with all processes and machinery integrated, it is easy to control and redefine the existing infrastructure and here’s how this can help:
- Speeding up work
- Help with monitoring remote assets
- Lend greater environmental control
- Increase productivity of the workforce
- Improved security and reduced hazards at work due to remote monitoring of assets
- Complete automation of processes leading to increased efficiency and ROI
IoT for Managing Building and Smart Cities
Consider this an extension of whatever we’ve mentioned for homes. If it can be done for one home, it can be done to manage a building and then a city! There is a lot of demand for IoT when smart cities are being constructed and in the building management space too IoT can improve a lot of things such as security, remote management, lighting, energy efficiency, automation of the entire building and controlling access to various parts of the building and so on. Just the very scope of IoT in these areas has us very excited! When it comes to even bigger scenarios such as smart cities, there is a lot that can be done using IoT – improve security, improve parking, improve lighting, transportation, traffic and energy efficiency.
This is one the areas that is our primary focus for we are Android App developers in India who have dabbled quite a bit in wearable app development. Wearable apps are no longer simply about fitness and tracking the number of steps you’ve taken in a day or calculating the number of calories you’ve burnt in a given workout session. In fact, even in these fitness bands, there are a lot of complex features available today from oxygen levels in the bloodstream to perspiration levels. While these may not sound appealing yet, these devices can store all this information and may analyze them to predict the onset of say flu or fever. There are other interesting applications of wearable tech such as environmental control, security, biometric information sharing and so on. These are yet in their nascent stages and have interesting applications in the future. As leading wearable app development folks in the country, we are interested in the interactions of wearables with other devices in the vicinity.
