The real value of Internet of things applications is far less than Internet gadgets and smart refrigerators. With the continuous development of the Internet of things, Internet of things applications are constantly helping companies improve efficiency, reduce costs and promote revenue growth. However, although you may think of many typical Internet of things applications, such as common industrial automation and Agricultural Internet of things applications, many people may not know that the Internet of things can also be used for rhinoceros tracking.
1. Monitoring prisoners
In the United States, private prisons and prison operators usually go to get reimbursement from inmates who participate in rehabilitation programs such as GED (high school) courses or continuing education, but it is very difficult to ensure that the check-in forms are not manipulated or changed in any way. So the use of rdif tracking equipment on prisoners can collect more specific data that can be audited.
Rdid tracking can also add specific functions about the location of prisoners at any given time, including their presence in prison. Time spent outside prison, meals, etc. People tracking is usually a problem because of privacy issues, but it’s not a problem in new prisons.
2. Tracking rhinoceros
In South Africa, Symphony link is used to track and protect rhinoceros in protected areas. Workers at the reserve drilled a hole in the rhino’s horn and inserted a GPS based tracking device that wirelessly sent the rhino’s location to the gateway. This allows the administrator of the reserve to know the location of each rhino at any time. If a rhinoceros is close to the edge of the reserve, the possibility of poaching is greater, and the reserve can send personnel to monitor the rhinoceros more closely.
3. Emergency response system
If emergency workers like firefighters, doctors or police officers are sent to areas where ordinary handheld radio devices cannot communicate, such as subway tunnels, Internet of things devices can help them send text messages directly to each other. This adds an additional level of security and security.
4. School security system
School safety has always been a social focus, and Internet of things devices can increase its security. Using Lora technology, teachers and administrators can click a button to lock school doors and teachers, and this action can also send alert messages to law enforcement agencies.
5. Urban traffic flow monitoring
The application of IOT devices can also help city managers understand the need for new parking facilities. This is done by checking that a car (via the driver’s or passenger’s mobile phone Bluetooth broadcast signal) has been driven at a certain point many times, indicating that the driver cannot find a parking space.
6. Skiers and skis tracking
The Internet of things has spread to many ski resorts around the world. Tracking skiers’ location information is not only a resort’s internal security management requirement, but also for skiers who want to increase security or can track their families throughout the resort.
7. Customer satisfaction monitoring
Many people will notice that there is a small box next to many customer service windows, which allows you to evaluate the service experience. They usually have three simple buttons, “good,” “very good,” and “bad.”. Here, the Internet of things is used to capture customer sentiment in this window. If a lot of people press the “bad” button, the company may need to further investigate the reason.
