Internet of Things (IoT)
|(Internet of Things (IoT) Solution Area||Areas of Advancement in IoT|
Smart homes allow home appliances to be conveniently controlled and automated through an internet connection.
|Home electricity consumption can be more efficiently managed with smart meters that track and communicate information.|
Smart HVAC and lighting systems improve occupancy comfort and save on energy costs.
Air quality control can be monitored with IoT sensors that detect changes in the air.
Smart cities aim to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) to improve the efficiency of everyday processes in a community.
|IoT sensors in traffic lights can intelligently improve traffic management by tracking and analyzing traffic data.|
Environment management with IoT can encompass anything from monitoring water levels to waste patterns that help cities better manage supplies and optimize sustainability.
With the ever-growing population, smart farming is an IoT solution that helps to strategically increase crop and livestock production.
|Precision agriculture uses IoT to divide large fields into small manageable zones and determine how to best plant crops in different field environments.|
In-ground sensors can monitor soil conditions to provide farmers with the information needed to efficiently manage their fields.
IoT technology can track livestock vitals to help farmers manage livestock health.
Connected farm machinery can communicate with each other to optimize interoperability and autonomous processes.
Technological IoT advances in smart health care provide convenient diagnostics and can monitor bodily functions and ailments.
|Smart health monitoring systems such as vital sign monitors can help prevent fatal health occurrences.|
Ingestible sensors, also known as smart pills, perform functions that range from notifying you if a family member took their daily pills to taking internal photos of the intestinal tract.
|Autonomous Vehicles and Systems|
You’ve seen cars that can drive themselves in movies, but with IoT technology, autonomous vehicles are on the fast track to becoming commonplace.
|For those who manage fleets of vehicles, such as delivery companies, IoT technology can efficiently monitor driving patterns to optimize driving performance and routes.|
Autonomous vehicles have reaction times faster than humans, which can optimize speed control and management.
Autonomous vehicles and systems can monitor in real-time the most efficient routes and speeds not only for safety and timeliness but also for environmental factors like carbon footprints and resource sustainability.
