Revolutionary IoT App Ideas for the Near Future

  1. 1. 6 MOBILE UI/UX MISTAKES TO AVOID - By Shanal Aggarwal (Head - Global Sales, TechAhead)
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION Internet of Things (IoT) has created major disruption in the market since its conception in 2015. It promises to create more. According to a recent Gartner survey, the number of IoT users globally is expected to rise from 13.4 billion in 2015 to 38.5 billion in 2025, a staggering rise of 300% which says a lot about the reach and popularity of IoT. When it comes to IoT, we mainly think of home automation systems. But IoT has great use in other fields too like agriculture, mining, manufacturing, public health and sanitation, traffic control, waste management, energy dissemination and security. IoT truly pervades each and every sphere of life we can imagine. ©2017 TechAhead
  3. 3. NOW AND NEXT…. Let us take a look at the existing IoT apps in different sectors and some innovative app ideas for the coming time. • Home Automation Apps Home automation is the most widely explored and understood application of IoT. As per GilPress, “More than two-thirds consumers plan to buy connected technology for their homes by 2019.” We all know about Nest’s smart thermostat, lights and carbon monoxide detection sensors- wonderful innovations to optimize water and electricity usage in a house; detect carbon level in the air; personalize temperature and light setting in a room and reduce utility bills. The next phase of IoT enabled home apps will see ground-breaking innovations. ©2017 TechAhead
  4. 4. HOME AUTOMATION APPS ©2017 TechAhead Smart lights, taps, detectors will become smarter. They will not only switch off when not in use, they will also store data about users’ habits, personalize water temperature and mood setting, analyze water and power wastage, create energy-efficient usage strategies. IoT home devices will not only make homes energy- efficient but help in tackling global issues like pollution, over- consumption and energy deficit. IoT-enabled heating, ventilation and HVAC systems will ensure users comfort and enhance style too. Blinds which flip vertically if it is too sunny and open wide when too dark inside are one of the innovative app ideas for the future. Automatic adjustment in temperature according to weather is another one.
  5. 5. HOME AUTOMATION APPS ©2017 TechAhead Connected security devices like CCTV and alarm systems are already in vogue. Coming time will see introduction of biometric to gain entry into a building; automatic locks and remote access-based security systems. Users will be able to get data about anyone trying to break into the house when they were away; notify the police in case of break in; ensure all doors and windows are locked even if they left in a hurry; open the main door when they are about to reach the house. Homes will become wholesome entertainment hubs. Music systems will store users’ personal choices and create the right mood for gatherings. Automatic notification will be sent on the app when your favorite movie is telecasted and television will ring an alarm at the right time too. The possibilities for IoT-enabled home automation apps are endless for consumers and developers alike.
  6. 6. HEALTH AND FITNESS APPS ©2017 TechAhead • Health and Fitness Apps 2015 saw the market flooded with health and fitness apps by Google and fitbit. Wearables like Smart bands and watches kept a watch on the wearer’s vital parameters like temperature, sugar level and blood pressure. These will become more responsive and rich in next few years. According to MobiHealthNews,”4 million patients globally will remotely monitor their health by 2020.” Sensor- embedded wearables will notify the wearer before their vital stats dip below permissible levels. For chronically-ill patients, sensor- embedded devices lodged in clothing will give timely reminders to take medication. There will also be development of sensors capable of identifying symptoms of autism and hyperactivity in children at an early age enabling correct diagnosis and timely treatment.
  7. 7. HEALTH AND FITNESS APPS ©2017 TechAhead Another emergent IoT-based trend being observed in health and fitness field is the gamification of fitness activities on the apps. A good example of one such app is MatchUp .io’s Move2Win which transforms routine exercise regimes into an interactive game format. It keeps users engaged by offering advice on their fitness routines, creates competitive scenarios between users and propels them to the next level of routine, all in a game-like structure which users enjoy immensely. All these innovations are creating ripples in health and fitness industry and excitement among health enthusiasts.
  8. 8. INDUSTRIAL AND AGRICULTURAL USE APPS ©2017 TechAhead • Industrial and Agricultural use apps A lesser-known application of IoT is in the industrial and agricultural fields where it has managed to reduce operation costs and improve productivity and will continue to do so in coming times. In manufacturing units and factories, intelligent sensors will be embedded in machines to identify imminent break downs before they occur so that preventive action can be taken and loss of productivity can be minimized. This will be especially useful in cases where machine failure or malfunction poses a threat to the workers health. An example can be seen in the mining industry, where IoT-enabled sensors similar to Nest thermostat are put inside mine shafts to monitor conditions inside the shaft and safeguard miners’ wee being.
  9. 9. INDUSTRIAL AND AGRICULTURAL USE APPS ©2017 TechAhead It is predicted that about 5.4 million such IoT devices will be used in oil extraction sites by 2020 to provide environmental metrics about extraction sites. In agriculture, about 75 million IoT devices will be used to identify soil acidity level, soil temperature and other variable parameters in soil such as manure, seeds, fertilizers to improve crop yield. Sensors embedded in soil will detect loss of fertility in a patch of soil, diagnose reasons for it and even provide instructions to farmers to prepare required manure mix for the soil. All instructions will be imparted in farmer’s native language for easy comprehension and better results. Unlike present times, IoT apps will become more affordable and accessible to all segments of society.
  10. 10. ENERGY DISSEMINATION APPS ©2017 TechAhead • Energy Dissemination Apps IoT apps in coming times will facilitate better dissemination of energy from all sources to reduce wastage of energy and realize sustainable living. Smart electricity meters will generate electricity bill for a household, notify when there is overuse of power, inform relevant authority when there is a prolonged power cut due to some fault, monitor voltage fluctuations and manage the energy flow. Smart electric grids can monitor and manage power supply to individual households to ensure uniform distribution of power and avoid power outages.
  11. 11. ENERGY DISSEMINATION APPS ©2017 TechAhead Intelligent sensors in water sources like septic tanks and wells will be able to control delivery of water, automatic cut off of motor to pump water, auto switch on when water supply starts, detect impurities in water, monitor water supply and send automatic notification to concerned authority in case of shortage of water into a system. IoT enabled sensors and controls in water supply channel can create smart water solutions and resolve water related issues rapidly. IoT will make energy ecosystem efficient and improve quality of life in the long run.
  12. 12. ENERGY DISSEMINATION APPS ©2017 TechAhead Intelligent sensors in water sources like septic tanks and wells will be able to control delivery of water, automatic cut off of motor to pump water, auto switch on when water supply starts, detect impurities in water, monitor water supply and send automatic notification to concerned authority in case of shortage of water into a system. IoT enabled sensors and controls in water supply channel can create smart water solutions and resolve water related issues rapidly. IoT will make energy ecosystem efficient and improve quality of life in the long run.
  13. 13. TRAFFIC MONITORING AND VEHICLE-EMBEDDED APPS ©2017 TechAhead • Traffic Monitoring and Vehicle-embedded Apps With exploding population and traffic on roads, managing traffic is quite a challenge but IoT has solutions for that too. Smart traffic lights and street lights which auto switch on and off when they detect traffic will reduce traffic jams. Self-driven cars are another disruptive revolution. Cars with intelligent sensors will be able to drive themselves with minimal human intervention. Rather than stop at red lights, self-driving cars would schedule a slot through an intersection in real-time, speeding up or slowing down to ensure they’re in the right place at the right time – and not smashing into another car. According to Gartner, about 250,000,000 connected cars will be on the road by 2020.
  14. 14. TRAFFIC MONITORING AND VEHICLE-EMBEDDED APPS ©2017 TechAhead Radio taxis like Uber and Ola are already using cloud technology to connect users and drivers remotely and geo-location to navigate to destinations. Ride sharing is being encouraged which will again reduce traffic and gas emission into the atmosphere and also save fuel consumption. In the future, cars will be able to park themselves without the aid of parking attendants owing to smart parking lots where sensors are placed next to each parking slot to compute available spaces and provide directions to access it. Location-based technology combined with IoT will enable smart routing to suggest least congested driving routes and alternative routes to reach a destination in case faced with unexpected roadblocks on the way.
  15. 15. TRAFFIC MONITORING AND VEHICLE-EMBEDDED APPS ©2017 TechAhead Auto adjustment of tyre pressure and auto detection of faults in engines and car mechanism will prevent sudden breakdowns. IoT enabled sensors will do self-diagnosis of problems, call for an ambulance or police in case of accident and preserve life. Volvo’s remote diagnostic platform for containers to monitor performance is a step in this direction.
  16. 16. WASTE MANAGEMENT APPS ©2017 TechAhead • Waste Management Apps With world population growing at an alarming rate, waste disposal and management is a crisis that almost every nation is facing. In the future, IoT has a sound solution to this problem as well. The ultrasonic level sensor is one type of sensor that IoT companies have put to good use. Initially designed to measure slurries and liquids, a number of businesses and municipalities are applying the sensor to measure solid waste as well. Ultrasonic level sensors work by emitting acoustic waves and then listening for an echo. Upon reaching a level surface, the waves will reflect back to the sensor with a measurement reading – similar to the process of echolocation. SmartBin and OnePlus systems are two ground breaking IoT apps in this field. They have sensors planted in bins to check waste level and type. They notify authorities if non-permissible items are detected in the waste. They are connected to trash pickup trucks which are notified when trash is full and they can plan their collection route accordingly.
  17. 17. PUBLIC HEALTH APPS ©2017 TechAhead • Public Health Apps By 2025, most hospitals will incorporate IoT-enabled network to connect doctors, patients and health care providers remotely so that less time will be spent in administration tasks at the hospital and more time is devoted to treatment of patients. Ingestible sensors administered to chronically-ill patients will pick up real- times data from body, feed it into medical records at their hospital, do quick analysis of data and provide appropriate course of action to patient and providers.
  18. 18. PUBLIC HEALTH APPS ©2017 TechAhead Doctors assisting patients remotely will become the trend and has been dubbed mHealth by IoT gurus. With the Internet of Things merging with our daily routine, even something as common as a refrigerator becomes helpful in alerting a doctor to what a patient has been doing to their body. Why keep a dietary journal, when your refrigerator will report to your doctor for you about what you have been eating? The technology to monitor such factors of a patient’s overall health is already here. Algorithms operating on this type of data can even comb through the information and report honestly about how healthy a patient's lifestyle actually happens to be.
  19. 19. PUBLIC HEALTH APPS ©2017 TechAhead Whether you want to review your own medical records or have a conversation with your doctor remotely, IoT apps make these connections possible. Mobile apps can educate patients as to the latest scientific breakthroughs and understanding of various health conditions and also help patients track their own symptoms, which leads to a stronger diagnosis by doctors.
  20. 20. SECURITY AND SURVEILLANCE APPS ©2017 TechAhead • Security and Surveillance Apps Most of us are aware of smart cameras, alarm systems and surveillance systems found in almost every modern building nowadays. They capture routine and regular movements within and near a premise where they are mounted, store the data and create data analytics from the information to establish a pattern. As they detect any unrecognizable suspected movement, they raise alarm, notify a neighbor or residents through apps in their mobile and even call the emergency service or police for prompt action. Now imagine if unmanned IoT enabled aerial drones are added to this equation. They can be used as a supplement to the police force, assist in patrolling, prevent crimes and help in catching [perpetrators of crime. This is what IOT can do for security and surveillance of people.
  21. 21. MOVING AHEAD IoT Apps will not be mere hardware; they will be bundled with follow-up services that the user will have to purchase to optimize the device use. For facilitating this, BigData will have to be shared between various sectors and industries to enable collaboration. The future of IOT is brighter than ever! Get a Free Quote ©2017 TechAhead
