IoT applications promise to bring immense value to our lives in today’s technology world. The Internet of Things could be the next frontier in the race for its share of the wallet with newer wireless networks and superior sensors produced. The potential for the market growth of IoT is massive. Here are some examples of the applications of the Internet of Things.
Wearable technology is a hallmark of IoT applications as it is one of the earliest industries to deploy the IoT at its service. For instance, these wearables such as Fit Bits, heart rate monitors and smartwatches.
One of the lesser-known wearables includes the Guardian glucose device. This device can aid people suffering from diabetics. It uses a tiny electrode called glucose sensor to detect the glucose levels in the body. Then the sensor will be placed under the skin and the device relays the information via Radio Frequency to a monitoring device.
2. Smart Home Applications
Smart homes are probably the first thing we think of when we talk about IoT applications. Examples of smart homes are like the AI home automation Mark Zuckerberg employs and also Allen Pan’s Home Automation System. This system functions in the house are actuated by the use of a string of musical notes. Here is a video of Mark Zuckerberg’s AI home automation.
3. Health Care
The resources most medical research uses lack of critical real-world information. This is because they mostly use leftover data, controlled environments, and volunteer for medical examinations. As a result, some of the results may not be accurate as the data is not up to date. However, IoT can open the way to a sea of valuable data through analysis, real-time field data, and testing.
4. Smart Cities
The greatest difficulty in building a smart city is that it is very specific to a city. The problems faced in Malaysia are different from China. Even global issues such as finite clean drinking water, deteriorating air quality and increasing urban density occur in different intensities across cities. Hence, they affect each city differently.
The government and engineers can also make use of IoT to analyze the often-complex factors in each city. For example, the use of Internet of Things applications can aid in areas like water management, waste control, and emergencies.
