Internet of things (IOT) uses embedded chips to connect all technology-based devices to form an Internet like micro network, which is composed of connected gadgets.
Understand the concept of Internet of things
The Internet itself is a global network of devices connected by protocols (Internet protocol suite: TC / IP). The Internet of things redefines these protocols to form a tighter network of devices that can easily collect and share data even without formal interaction between people or between people and computers. For example, when your smart watch always automatically reads your heart rate and provides detailed analysis on the smart phone for recording for medical purposes, it is a good IOT system.
Similarly, smart devices that support technology are everywhere. They have built a deeper path in our lives and livability. With the continuous reduction of the cost of “sensor” and its convenient availability to manufacturers, as well as the development of “Internet connection” and data analysis applications, the development trend of this technology has witnessed the continuous growth of demand and innovation.
The development trend of Internet of animals will be promoted in 2021
The Internet of things has effectively reshaped our house through smart TV, watch, music, lighting, clothes, curtains and so on. With the vigorous development of industrial Internet of things, the development of smart city is also in full swing, which will reshape our view of the world around us.
Here, we analyze the development trend that we think will shape the prospect of this technology in the next year
The rise of 1.5g
The Internet of things needs easy and seamless connection between devices, and the rise of “5g” will make it develop at a faster speed. According to the global report, the technology will be 100 times faster than the ordinary 4G, making the speed of ordinary data connection increase by at least 10 times. All of these will enhance the innovation and deployment of complex data collection and analysis systems in the vicinity of everyday Internet of things system users.
With an average Internet connection speed of gigabytes (15-20gbps) and large bandwidth available for a variety of devices, the technology will eliminate all current bandwidth constraints (at least until the scale of use expands to keep up with it)).
2. Accelerate industrial Internet of things (iiot)
Automation requirements are everywhere, including industry, the Internet of things can well meet all the needs. The industrial Internet of things is mainly to collect and analyze data and work routines of various equipment and system requirements, and to automate their work. Initially, the role of the technology was limited to improving the overall industry efficiency and operation management through rationalization, automation and system maintenance for the manufacturing sector in the intelligent factory environment.
Looking forward to the future, the Internet of things has been touted to exceed $123 billion in the vertical industry alone. The technology aims to help industries optimize workflow, intelligent manufacturing and intelligent industry, asset performance management, industrial control, develop towards on-demand service model, and even apply to cross industry scenarios. The coming era. It will also change the way services are provided to customers and updated revenue models are created. It has been actively promoting and helping to enhance all aspects of industrial digital transformation.
3. Security will become an increasing concern
As a large number of smart devices throughout the home, office and industry continue to collect user data, they will become targets for hackers and other immoral entities.
The Internet of things is connecting everything, but the problem here is that all these devices are not ready or mature enough to cope with the functional and security risks brought by network attacks. For example, hackers may exploit vulnerabilities in Smartwatch software design or Bluetooth connection credentials. This vulnerability allows them to access the connected smartphone, which will connect to other smart devices, banking applications, etc. again, thus exposing all smartphones as possible targets. These risks are more serious for industries and enterprises, which makes the technology widely used. This is mainly due to:
Lack of protocol set for manufacturing IOT support devices such as cameras and refrigerators
Insufficient understanding of these security threats among users (because this is a relatively new technology)
Equipment update management
Infringement of privacy of owners and users of the Internet of things
To solve these ominous security problems by using protection protocols, attacking sensors and other security related practices and developments will occupy an important position among IOT designers and developers.
4. Internet of things in health care
Covid-19 has changed a lot in today’s world, especially our view and value of health care. As human contact becomes a viable source of infection and virus transmission, governments, medical departments, industries, and patients are increasingly concerned about technology to help them stay in touch with healthcare regulations and developments.
The Internet of things enables doctors to easily monitor patients and prescribe drugs for them without waiting and traveling, thus improving efficiency and providing a simple way to work. In the post covid era, zero contact is now the safest way to get medical help. The Internet of things also enables affordable, accessible and accessible medical services for all. It enables medical centers to operate more competently, and patients can get better treatment at no extra cost. Its direct benefits include:
Real time reporting and monitoring of the patient’s condition allows rapid action in an emergency.
Automated patient care workflow.
Better doctor-patient connection.
Better, easier data analysis.
The Internet of things makes health care relatively affordable, as the costs of travel, infrastructure maintenance and extra taxes are reduced.
Keep track of the patient’s physical parameters and give an alarm in time.
Provide telemedicine assistance when necessary.
Internet of things data can also be used for medical research.
Devices connected to the Internet of things, such as smart watches, heart rate and oxygen level monitors, blood pressure and blood glucose meters, are helping doctors provide real-time data of patients’ conditions, so as to realize easy monitoring and doctor-patient connection. As hospitals also regularly use the technology to track patients, personnel and equipment, this trend will be further promoted in the coming year.
5. The era of “edge computing” is coming
Today, “data is king”, so companies need to protect and make full use of it to achieve better future and market-based development. Enterprises are understanding this and tend to do edge computing between IOT networks rather than cloud computing directly.
Edge computing basically includes a node in the topology of IOT network to ensure that the data is stored before reaching the cloud, and a comprehensive analysis of business requirements is carried out. The node is usually located closer to the source or destination of the output data to ensure higher efficiency and practicability.
With the explosive growth of the number of devices in the network, this trend will be highlighted to ensure the seamless and fast-paced operability of each IOT connected device.
6. Innovation of smart home utilities
There was a time when smart lights and fans were discarded as “lazy people’s favorites.”.
They are now the expected luxuries, and in the future, these luxuries will be touted as necessities.
According to the world report, “by 2026, the global smart home market is expected to reach 622.59 billion US dollars, with a compound annual growth rate of 29.3%.” As people are willing to spend money to use technology in their living space to improve their work efficiency, this new innovation at the forefront of technology will be put on the market every few days.
Smart TV, Alexa, Google home and other smart devices, smart cars, smart mops, smart heaters, smart air conditioning will become the leading family innovation. For example, smart refrigerators are older than later smart refrigerators, enough to measure the declining “milk level” and order from your local grocery store through Google home or Alexa. From data collection, analysis to communication to payment, everything will be handled by technology.
7. AI brings “smarter” experience
Internet of things is all about equipment automation to improve work efficiency. Artificial intelligence is a technology that helps these devices analyze available data and make “intelligent decisions” for automation. Basically, this is “the intelligence of smart devices.”.
Therefore, if we want our homes, offices and industries to become more intelligent, we need to include more artificial intelligence.
The technology has been able to create and deploy AI supported robots and other devices in global enterprise, home and industry structures. This trend is touted to have a wider scope in the coming year. Amazon has used robots to classify consumables in its distribution network, as well as restaurants in Dubai. This is the beginning of a new journey.
8. self driving cars are coming soon.
According to the latest technology report, California Automobile Department (DMV) has granted Nuro the state’s first commercial license for autopilot. The permit enables the company to operate its own driving car on the road in the two counties near its bay area headquarters.
This is the global car market and its future. The technology requires the development and deployment of regulatory frameworks to enable these gadgets to run freely on conventional roads. In fact, HORIBAMIRA even developed ASSUREDCAV, a complete facility designed to provide the overall environment from concept to road testing for autopilot cars. The development trend of technology is bound to change the world’s automobile industry and maintain a high degree of confidence here.
9. Smart city will continue to flourish
Smart city is basically urban space, which aims to provide general government services through technology. They also collect and analyze data relevant to each citizen to ensure that it is easily accessible to the government; when needed. Only Singapore, India, Dubai, Milton, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Madrid, Stockholm, Copenhagen, China and New York have implemented examples of smart city technologies and plans.
In fact, China is using artificial intelligence technology to monitor the brains of its developing children and young people, and analyze their intelligence and thinking level, so as to effectively measure learning efficiency, and provide effective data to researchers, so as to develop more intelligent algorithms to analyze human behavior and development. In fact, they have been studying a kind of crime monitoring system, which can analyze the user’s behavior data and predict the idea that a crime can be committed even before the crime occurs; the system is not only powerful, but also very eye-catching for the monitored individuals. Good or bad, this trend is touted to witness further innovation in the future era.
10. “Smart farm” supporting Internet of things
As farmers become smarter through technological inclusion and adaptation, so do their farms. Technologies are being used in agriculture to monitor climate conditions in real time and to analyze all other crop growth factors such as soil health, moisture, irrigation, plant health, etc. The Internet of things realizes these aspects of monitoring and functions through handheld devices, which can be controlled anytime and anywhere, so as to turn these labor-intensive projects into a technical support environment. With drones, you can even collect water droplets and form artificial clouds and rain, which is how to grow food in the future.
11. The Internet of things will help save resources
As the saying goes, “energy saving is energy generation”, the Internet of things will be more and more used in the general home and office, not only can improve work efficiency, but also can improve the efficiency of the Internet of things. It also monitors resource waste and is developing ways to stop it. For example, application based electronic products should monitor the movement of people in the space as soon as possible, and automatically use the power and other resources in the space. This kind of monitoring and management will help to develop more energy-saving space in the future era.
12. SaaS integration with Internet of things
Technology has penetrated into all aspects of human life, including personal works and enterprises. Technologies like AI and machine learning make these technologies more intelligent. However, they come at the cost of development and deployment. For most small and medium-sized enterprises, it may not be feasible to purchase and employ them in the end, and they do not need to follow the scale of their development. “SaaS” or software as a service is a cloud based service concept, which can be used as a service in the cloud for storing IOT network data, where payment is made according to usage. This model is suitable for enterprises, so that they can afford to expand the scope. As enterprises seek ways to better understand their customers and the growing market has become a reality, this is the place where enterprises are respected to grow in the future.
As a technology trend, the Internet of things has crossed the new stage of user adaptation and acceptance. The umbrella concept is evolving every day, and small entrepreneurs and start-ups are taking the lead in finding ways to develop smarter user gadgets and environments. These trends will change the way the world works, touching the lives of billions of people in one way or another.
