Internet of Things
A new step in the era of smart devices
Almost every aspect of our lives now generates some data. Smart watches track each step we take. The smartphones in our pockets know our location at any moment, where we’re going on holiday, our hobbies and what we’re considering buying.
How IoT can help to your bussines:
Improved business insights & customer experience
Cost & downtime reductions
Efficiency & productivity gains
Asset tracking & waste reduction
New business models
Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of connected devices such as sensors, electronic equipment, cameras, and many more. They are programmed in such a way that IoT provides automation for the devices that are connected. Some of the common IoT devices that we come across and use in our day-to-day lives are smart TVs, refrigerators, and air conditioners. We just need to give commands to these devices using our smartphone application for operating them. Also, we use many wearable IoT devices such as smartwatches and wrist bands that show our heartbeat, blood pressure, and the distance we walked. This is all possible by smartly integrating technologies and equipment together to form an IoT product. Further, due to the advancements in the field of AI and Machine Learning, the future scope of IoT has impressively increased. The potential of IoT is not limited to healthcare. There are various other applications of IoT. In this blog, we will discuss the Future scope of IoT in Agriculture, healthcare, automotive and industry. Now, let us discuss the need for IoT.
Why do we need Internet of Things (IoT)?
Have you ever been in a situation where you went to the market and forgot to switch off your AC, fan, or light and felt helpless that you cannot return home to switch it off? This is where IoT comes into the picture. It can remind you of the essential tasks that you often forget to do. Also, using the mobile application, you can access your home appliances integrated with IoT from anywhere around the world.
