WHAT IS THE IOT? IOT APPLICATION IN PRACTICE
This below article is everything that you need to know about the Internet of Things or shortened as “IoT”. The meaning of this term is about the extension of the Internet beyond the computer and mobile phone, connecting with everything, processes, and other environments.
Is one of the terms in technology so not everyone truly understands what the LoT is or why it’s vital to enterprises and consumers. We’ll define technology terms and explain what you need to know.
The definition of IoT
Nowadays, this term is defined with a multitude of definitions and we offer a definition that you can understand most easily.
Internet of Things or IoT refers to billions of physical devices all over the world connected with the Internet, sharing, and collecting data. Thanks to the processor inside the same wireless network, you can make things smarter and more proactive.
You can see IoT from automatic door systems to planes to self-driving cars that have become a common part of IoT. This adds a level of digital intelligence to passive devices, allowing them to communicate real-time data without the need for human participation, effectively fusing the digital and physical worlds.
The importance of IoT
When anything connects with the Internet, this means it can send or receive information, or both. With IoT, the ability to send and receive information makes things smarter and smartness has always been looking forward.
Smartphones are a point of view. Now you can listen to any song all over the world, not because your phone is stored in every song around the world. It means those songs are stored elsewhere, but your phone can send information (demand the song) and receive information (play the audio in on your phone).
To be smart, something doesn't need to have super storage or a supercomputer inside it. All you have to do is connect to super storage or a supercomputer.
In the Internet of Things, all things connected to the internet can be divided into three categories:
The crawl type and then post it
For example, sensory devices, or it can be temperature sensors, motion sensors, humidity or light sensors, etc. These sensors together with a connection, allow us to automatically collect information from the environment. Hence, allowing us to make smarter decisions.
The receiving information type and then act
For example, your print can receive a file and print it. Your vehicle responds to the signal from the key and opens the door
We can see it in the agriculture industry. Those sensors can collect information about the humidity of the soil for farmers to know how much they need to water, but you don’t need a farmer. Instead, the watering system can be automatically active, based on the soil’s humidity.
Moreover, those agriculturalists invested another one more step. If the irrigation system receives information about weather from its Internet connection, it can know when it’s rain and decides not to water that day because of making use of water.
IoT applications in the Industry
Let’s refer to some technology industries that have been applied to IoT for integration.
Manufacturers can gain a competitive advantage by using production line monitoring to enable proactive maintenance on equipment when sensors detect an impending fault.
The sensors can measure when the production output is compromised. With the help of sensor warnings, manufacturers can quickly test a device's accuracy or remove it from production until it is repaired. This allows companies to reduce operating costs, get better uptime, and improve asset performance management.
The automotive industry has gained a considerable advantage since using IoT apps. Besides the advantage of applying IoT for production lines, the sensors can detect impending equipment failures on vehicles already on the road and can alert drivers in detail.
Thanks to aggregate information collected by apps based on IoT, car manufacturers and suppliers can learn more about how to keep cars running and inform vehicle owners about the information ahead.
The fleets of cars, trucks, and cargo ships inventory can be rerouted based on weather conditions, vehicle availability, or driver availability, thanks to IoT sensor data. The inventory itself can also be equipped with sensors to monitor and control the temperature.
The food and beverage, flower, and pharmaceutical industries are often temperature-sensitive inventory items that will benefit greatly from IoT monitoring apps that send notifications when the temperature rises or falls that possibly affect the product.
The IoT apps allow retail companies to manage inventories, improve customer experience, optimize the supply chain, and reduce operating costs.
For example, intelligent shelves are equipped with measure sensors that can collect information based on RFID and send data to the IoT foundation to automatically track inventories
IoT offers many benefits to the healthcare industry. Doctors and nurses often need to know the exact location of patient supportive assets such as wheelchairs. Once hospital wheelchairs are equipped with IoT sensors, they can be tracked from the IoT asset monitoring app so that anyone looking can quickly find the nearest available wheelchair.
Many hospital assets can be tracked in this way to ensure fair use as well as financial accounting for the physical assets in each department.
