What is the "Internet of Things" (IoT)
By 2025 it is estimated that more than 75 billion devices will be connected to the internet which roughly means seven connected devices for every individual alive at that time. There will be a world covered with billions of sensors that will continuously pick the information from real physical objects around us and upload it to the internet. It's a world where your surrounding environment will respond and transform based on your customized preferences as you walk through it.
Better use of dataCompanies have so much of historically collected data in place that has never been utilised for any processes. With the introduction of IoT in connected devices, companies can leverage that data in infinite ways for their own good.
Autonomous MachineryReducing human effort and replacing with some smart machinery has always been the priority for many companies. That very well translates into reducing costs, higher efficiency with a little to no supervision.
Data CollectionThe data is power and the more data a company has is better. It is not a hidden truth that more information helps to make better decisions. With the use of beacons and sensors, the IoT enabled companies collect insightful data that helps in better train their devices.

— it is better to hop on with these early IoT adopters.
Amazon Echo - Smart Home
Amazon Echo is the latest example of IoT device that connects to the voice-controlled intelligent personal assistant service, Alexa. You can ask to play music, or ask to read a book for you, get news/sports updates, weather reports, control your home lighting, and even book Uber for yourself.
Fitbit One - Wearables
Fitbit One is a device that tracks your activity from steps, distance covered, floors climbed to the sleep quality. It's a wrist wearable device that automatically and wirelessly connects to your smartphone or computer devices to monitor your progress.
Barcelona - Smart Cities
This Spanish city of Barcelona is also known as the city of the future. This smart city integrates new technologies into its management system to improve its efficiency and sustainability. Barcelona has implemented a number of notable initiatives in this regard. Projects such as the new grid bus system, electric city bikes, smart car parks, waste management and systems that favour sustainable energy use.
AT&T - Connected Car
With more than 9.5 million connected cars powered by AT&T, it is the first telecom company that brings IoT to their network for connected cars. You don't have to pay for the subscription or any plan to get counted in the fleet of AT&T's connected cars.
Drones are the perfect example of IoT-enabled devices. Drones aren't just intended for clicking aerial photos for your Instagram. We are using drones for security purposes in the military, which can be used to collect weather and seismic activity, live traffic reporting, and the most recently introduced use of drones by Amazon in the delivery of e-commerce goods.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some frequently asked questions of our clients that we always love to answer.
What is IoT and why should we care about it?
In the most simple words, IoT is the combination of sensor-embedded electronic devices and networks (Internet) for data sharing. Some devices only interact with each other while others connect to the network.
"Your next refrigerator may know more about your diet than your doctor."
What do you think about a decade ago, how many personal devices/appliances were connected to the internet to make your life simpler. One or maybe two?
But today, take a look around and see the things connected to the internet. Your smartphone, personal computer, tablet, gaming console, camera, smart TV, and even your smart refrigerator (if you have one).
So the world will always be changing due to these sensors and the internet. And we call it the Internet of Things.
How IoT can be used in manufacturing industries?
With the increasing penetration of IoT in businesses for better productivity, automation, expanding the potential market, and lower cost of production. More and more companies are putting their trust into it to manage their processes.
IoT solutions make a manufacturing unit intelligent while being autonomous.
A manufacturer needs to cope up with many things such as the supply chain and production cycle. All these things collect lots and lots of data like transactional data, ERP data, CRM data, and other public data. Collectively this data allows a manufacturer to work and operate the unit smoothly and connect with the customers and business partners.
According to a survey done by Industry Week, more than 40% of manufacturers think that this is the right time to adopt and invest in IoT.
What IoT could resolve - Machine failure, problems in the control system or getting accurate results from the data.
- Connected Machinery - With the help of sensors and actuators all the data gathered by the sensors is sent to the cloud for analysis and creating predictive models so that all the machinery works in sync. It also helps in maximizing the machine output by predicting equipment failure and reduce the service cost.
- Remote Operations - IoT can also help you manage the machines remotely; like, maintaining the temperature limits and other system operations which directly impact and reduce the cost of production.
IoT is modernizing the way of doing businesses by leveraging sensors, cloud infrastructure, data analytics, and visualization dashboard.
What is the use case of IoT in healthcare sector?
IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) has already started transforming the healthcare industry by improving patient care and communication between doctors and their patients.
IoMT is one of the largest and fastest-growing segments of healthtech.
Researchers at the University of Tokyo developed electricity conducting ink that can be used to print circuits on clothing and used to measure heart rate and muscle contraction.
IoMT technology can also help in emergency situations. If someone has a heart attack or stroke, all the relevant data from the patient's medical history can be sent to the doctor before the ambulance takes the patient to the hospital. Giving doctors a few more crucial minutes to figure out the best and precise treatment possible.
What IoT solutions can you provide for our retail chain?
