Global businesses and communities have been using Internet of things technology to improve efficiency and provide better services. The income of the Internet of things platform will reach 66 billion yuan in 2020, an increase of 20% over last year. “External factors such as enterprises’ greater flexibility in supply chain and asset management to cope with the interference caused by global New Coronavirus will make the Internet of things market overcome the widespread economic disruption expected in 2020 and beyond.”
Coronavirus and health care
As global communities hope to use Internet of things technology to help countries and cities provide better community services for their populations, solutions with flexible capabilities will continue to be the best choice. The global coronavirus pandemic is putting the healthcare industry under the microscope, and in many cases, organizations are turning to remote, low-power solutions such as lorawan to develop applications that optimize hospital, patient care, and public health workflow through reliable and accurate data monitoring.
As global communities hope to use Internet of things technology to help countries and cities provide better community services for their populations, solutions with flexible capabilities will continue to be the best choice.
One example is body temperature monitoring, which is a safer way to screen patients for high temperatures. Sensor technology can be used at the individual and community levels. For individuals, wireless sensors using thermal sensing technology are embedded in remote low-power devices using connectivity, which can transmit temperature data to cloud based applications for trend analysis.
If the temperature threshold is exceeded, the alarm can be pushed to the mobile device, enabling the patient to limit contact with others and seek medical care. This kind of technology can also be used in the community of public space, so that public health officials can effectively and reliably monitor the population on public transport in airports, railway stations, schools, shopping malls, large building entrances, etc.
Monitoring and management
The task of monitoring and managing segregated personnel remains a major challenge. Medical service staff, including disease control and prevention teams, are increasingly using intelligent applications based on the Internet of things to provide efficient and high-quality medical services for their communities. The traditional isolation methods, including the use of cameras, the sealing and locking of doors, have limited effectiveness, and are usually unable to effectively monitor the state of building entrances and exits.
In addition, these methods require frequent manual inspection, which increases labor costs and brings maintenance personnel into contact with isolation personnel. Alternatively, remote low-power can provide real-time insight into isolated buildings instead of manual processing. One of the solutions is the smart door sensor, which is used to monitor the number of people entering and leaving the building.
Smart home and building
Internet of things technology can also be applied to smart home and building to promote safety and security. Smart sensors in buildings make everyone safer by monitoring and reporting a variety of issues, including fire alarms, air quality, chemical detection of industrial buildings, and structural integrity reporting.
In addition, passengers can be equipped with badges to control access and provide presence information. The motion detector can detect the intrusion, and the door and window opening detector can identify the open entry point that should be closed. Remote control allows users to turn them off without actually stepping on the scene.
With the continuous development of Internet of things technology, it will continue to affect many industries, and the ultimate goal is to provide happier, healthier and safer communities.
