How Informed Are You with the Eningeering Internet Of Things
Welcome to the Internet of Things, the term for the network of electronic devices interaction, linked by the internet, independent of human intervention, and is said to cover millions and even billions of smart electronic devices by 2020. The engineering industry claimed that developments between this year and 2020 falling under the category of the IoT would be PCs, tablet computers, digital cameras, e-Book readers, mobile phones, robots, private and public computer networks and whatever newly developed smart electronic devices.
These developments of IoT would have several impacts, benefits and costs in our lives.
There are many benefits that we can derive from the IoT and let us enumerate these briefly below.
The engineering world is saying that automation will be reaching a different kind of high levels that would change dramatically our lifestyles and this is one benefit that we can get from IoT. The changes that the engineering experts are referring to here would relate to the high level of comfort in our lives, like travelling less physically, and more time can be dedicated to our first occupations, relaxation, rest and vacations.
Examples of an IoT age that you would appreciate is when your PC would automatically order your groceries as soon as it detects a falling below the set levels, or a specialized robot in your home that will verify your visitors and open the door for them without you having to do the task.
Another projected benefit when we have the IoT is savings on costs, and this is because of the inherent efficiency of the electronic networks that would eliminate jobs and processes in trade, leading to a positive impact on our economy that would make prices of goods or services to fall.
With the applications of IoT, an increase in speed and productivity will be experienced, leading to savings and even freeing humans from monitoring tasks thereby enhancing productivity. For example, you do not need to remember when to turn off your oven, or switch on and off the lights in your room, or worry of not turning off your AC when you leave your home, because all of these will be done by the systems in your home, for you. With the help of motion sensors or facial recognition, the goal of IoT is in automating our lives with the improvement in efficiency of these areas.
It is further envisioned that the Internet of Things will have a big impact on the digital businesses while facilitating new models of businesses and improving efficiency.
Currently, a wide range of establishments are already using IoT technologies and business models although the support IoT is still at its infant stage.
