From consumer IoT to enterprise IoT, manufacturing and industrial IoT, (IIoT), the Internet of Things has a multitude of real-world applications. IoT applications cover numerous areas, including automotive, telecom and energy.
In the consumer segment, for example, smart thermostats, smart devices and connected heating, lighting and electronic devices equipped with smart homes, computers, and smart phones can be controlled via remote.
Wearable devices with sensors and software can collect and analyze user data to make users ' lives easier and more comfortable, and send messages about users to other technologies. Wearable devices are also used for public safety, for example, a location-by providing optimized paths, or life-threatening or first responders during emergencies, firefighters, construction workers in areas by monitoring vital signs, shorten the duration of the intervention.
In healthcare, IoT offers many benefits, including the ability to monitor patients more closely using analysis of generated data. Hospitals often use IoT systems to complete tasks such as inventory management for both drugs and medical devices.
Smart buildings, for example, can reduce energy costs by using sensors that detect how many people are in a room. Temperature can be adjusted automatically. For example, if sensors detect that a conference room is full, they turn on the air conditioner or turn off the heat if everyone in the office has gone home.
In agriculture, IoT-based intelligent farming systems can help monitor soil moisture, for example light, temperature, humidity and October areas, using connected sensors. IoT is also effective in automating irrigation systems.
In a smart city, IoT sensors and deployments, such as smart street lights and smart meters, can help mitigate traffic, conserve energy, improve monitoring and addressing environmental concerns.
