9 Ways The Internet of Things Is Changing Everything
9 Ways The Internet
of Things Is Changing
In the dawn of the IoT,
what kind of world will
we be living in?
Here are nine ways the IoT is improving our daily lives:
1. The IoT will create
2. We can greatly reduce the possibility
of train or ski lift accidents.
If train or ski lifts had sensors
built in, the manufacturer
would be notified of any
malfunctioning parts and could
maintenance BEFORE anything
3. Airplanes can operate more efficiently, lowering
your ticket price.
GE recently started connecting their jet engines to the IoT
with the hope of improving overall efficiency and reducing
fuel costs, flight times, and maintenance costs.
4. We can have our packages delivered with DRONES, saving
time and money.
5. Interconnected farm equipment
is optimizing food production.
And we’re talking more than just “smart” farm
equipment. A farmer’s network could allow
each piece of heavy equipment to be diagnosed
and repaired before it breaks, and eventually
could analyze every crop to customize the
fertilizer to each specific plant.
With products like Nest, connected lights, and security systems, you
can now monitor and change the settings in your house from
anywhere. Homes are continuing to get smarter and smarter.
7. There are even connected floating hotels for workers
drilling offshore! These hotels use built in sensors to monitor
each vessel and run preventative diagnostics in real time.
8. By the end of the decade, some cities will
inter-connect their infrastructure to provide
electric vehicle charging stations, smart grids
and meters, smart taxis and parking, and a
Direct Alarm System for homes.
9. Finally, connected
healthcare equipment can
monitor you at all times.
This constant stream of data could save
your life one day. It can allow doctors to
more accurately monitor you, virtually
diagnose problems, and even preemptively
respond to emergencies!
The bottom line is that anyone age 10-90 can
find the IoT very useful.
We can all benefit from cheaper, more efficient
And we can all benefit from connected farm networks that
increase farmer profits and decrease food prices.
Even smart homes can save you money on energy and give
you less to worry about at the end of the day.
