What Will IoT Be Like In 100 Years?

What is IoT?

IoT is nothing but the Internet of things. The term “the Internet of things was coined by Kevin Ashton of Procter & Gamble, later MIT’s Auto-ID Center, in 1999”.The IOT is the connection between physical devices to the embedded sensor, electronics, software etc with the help of a network connection they exchange data. It’s one 0f the fastest growing firm. Expert has estimated the growth of IoT will 30 billion objects by 2020.

Internet of things (IoT) enables gadgets to be checked remotely across current system infrastructure, creating possibilities for the more direct combination of the physical world into computer-based operations and resulting in improved performance. The IoT is used virtual power plants, intelligent transportation, smart homes, and smart cities.

Uses of IoT to a wide variety of devices such as heart monitoring implants, cameras streaming the live feed of wild animals, biochip on farm animals, automobiles with sensors, DNA analysis devices monitoring, field operation devices that assist firefighters in search and rescue operations.

Applications of IoT:

The uses and the application of IoT devices are extensive. The Internet of things (IoT) is the next platform of the information revolution and referenced the inter-connectivity of everything from public transport to medical devices to household appliances.

1. Smart Home:

IoT devices are a concept of home automation, also known as domotics or home automation. Large smart home systems utilize a main hub or controller to provide users with central control for all of their devices. These devices can include, heating, lighting, air conditioning, media and security systems. Ease of usability is the most immediate benefit of connecting these functionalities. Long-term benefits can include the ability to create a more environmentally friendly home by automating some functions such as ensuring lights and electronics are turned off. One of the primary hindrances to obtaining smart home technology is the high cost.

2. Enterprise:

The word “Enterprise IoT,” or EIoT, is used to refer to all instruments used in business and corporate settings. By 2019, it is expected the EIoT will account for nearly 40% or 9.1 billion devices.

3. Transportation:

The IoT in transportation can continuously observe the location and conditions of freight and assets through wireless sensors and send specific alerts when management exceptions occur. Application of the IoT spreads to all aspects of transportation systems.

4. Medical and healthcare:

IoT devices can be used to allow remote health monitoring and emergency warning systems. These health monitoring devices can range from blood pressure and heart rate monitors to advanced devices capable of monitoring specialized implants, such as apple watch, pacemakers, Fitbit electronic wristbands. The more IoT devices are coming up for Prenatal and chronic patients, helping one manage health vitals and recurring medical conditions.

5. Applications:

The emerging IoT devices are created for consumer use. The IoT is used in many consumer applications such as home automation, quantified self, wearable technology, robotic vacuums, air purifiers, ovens, or refrigerators/freezers that use Wi-Fi for remote monitoring. Consumer IoT provides new opportunities for user experience and interfaces. Smart Home devices make life easier at the house and give us the opportunity to make several things at the same time.

“We know that IOT is not merely a hot topic, but a game changer for enterprises across the spectrum. Taking a step further, at Hakuna Matata, we are engaged in leveraging the potential of IoT in enabling businesses.”
