IoT: Revolutionizing the Sustainable and Secure Homes
IoT has flourished its arches in every floor possible be it industry, agriculture, energy projects or transportation. Its application is playing a major role in transforming the analog world into a digital one. Industrial IoT is topping the list while talking about the applications area. The industrial IoT application area covers a wide range of connected “things” projects both inside and outside the factory. For example, many IoT-based factory automation and control projects include holistic smart factory solutions with numerous elements such as production floor monitoring, wearables, and Augmented Reality on the shop floor, remote PLC control, or automated quality control systems.
Apart from Industry, IoT is revolutionizing with an unstoppable speed in every area possible such as transportation/mobility, Healthcare, Supply Chains, and Cities. The Internet of Things (IoT) emerged merely as a concept in the early 2000s, and as we approach 2021, trends show that this technology is here to stay. Reports indicate that there will be 35.82 billion IoT devices installed worldwide by 2021 and 75.44 billion by 2025.
Have you ever wondered about a city with talkative Trash Bins, Automated guided streets lights, thousands of E-vehicle charging stations, AI controlled Traffic management systems and a lot more? Obviously we never even imagined this but have seen these things in movies. Now, IoT is making all of this possible in the real world. Today, we have a lot of smart cities with Singapore topping the list followed by Seoul, London and Barcelona. It will be interesting to dig deeper into the topic of smart cities and secure homes with IoT.
