By 2020, there will be 21 billion connected devices in a global Internet of Things.
Soon every device you own — and nearly every object you can imagine — will be connected to the Internet.
The Internet of Things (IoT) connects networks of sensors, actuators and smart objects with physical ‘things’ (including everyday and industrial objects) in such a way as to make them intelligent, programmable and more capable of interacting with humans and each other.
How Industries will be Transformed
An enormous amount of data is amassed in this industry via electronic medical records, diagnostic information gathered through imaging equipment, monitors and hand-held personal devices which enhances the decision-making powers of professionals and enables patients to take a more active role in managing their personal health. These innovations are transforming not just the care of the chronically ill but those who are and want to remain healthy.
Today, major retailers today are placing sensors throughout their stores. These sensors can detect the presence of people in aisles, the quantity of products on the shelves, the zone of movement, and more. They can identify which products are flying off the shelves as well as provide insight into when and why sales are happening. Armed with this information, retailers can promptly make changes, such as switching the location of a display or hiring more sales reps, to test whether those actions have an impact. In addition, IoT analytics can help retailers provide a personalized experience to customers that turns them into repeat buyers.
Manufacturers are harnessing ever-increasing amounts of data from equipment and suppliers. The ability to analyse data from every link of the manufacturing value chain helps companies increase efficiency, keep production running smoothly, and reduce costs.
Connected cars are “moving IoT sensors” and provide vast amounts of data about performance, maintenance, driver behavior. These cars will fuel new ecosystems of applications that enhance the driving experience and create many new revenue opportunities.
Farmers are facing an enormous challenge as they must overcome increasing water shortages, limited availability of lands, difficult to manage costs, while meeting the increasing consumption needs of a global population that is expected to grow by 70% by 2050. (IoT) solutions for Agriculture improve efficiency and yields while controlling costs.
