If you are here, there is a high possibility that you have a fervid knowledge about Internet of Things (IoT). IoT has a lot of significance on the contemporary world’s advancement. Anticipated, people are asking repeatedly what is the next thing that will be done by Internet of Things? Will it grow?
It is estimated that total amount of $235 billion will be spent on IoT in the upcoming year of 2016 which also included 22% from 2015 (Gartner,2015). The company that analysed the results thinks that 6.4 billion things will be connected around the world in 2016 including the 30% from 2015 adding up to an amount of 20.8 billion by 2020.
If the situation goes as it is estimated, there will not be any come back for IoT and the assumed trends will transform the technological world in 2016. Few of those trends will be highlighted in the article. However, this can also be used as a sophisticated guide of Internet of Things that are to be evolved which will make your life easier and merrier.
Internet (IoT) Trends That Will Change The World In Coming 5 Years
1. Small and Fast Bluetooth:
Usually the term Bluetooth is linked with the Smartphone world. But with IoT growing day by day, the Bluetooth to be used in the smart home is not like the ones that run in our devices. It will have higher speed, long range and mesh networking. The range will be expanded by quadruple times with a 100% enhancement in speed.
2. The running Office:
Sounds tempting and interesting ain’t it? But what are we going to do with the employees? Everyone these days has a smartphone or possibly a smartwatch with them. So, connecting the whole office with that and building an ecosystem won’t be difficult. Will it be? Imagine an office with data harvesting apps, GPS, location apps. Won’t it be awesome? You can make your own custom-made apps even!
3. The installation of beacons:
Beacons? Bacons? Haha. No! Installing low power and small Bluetooth beacons through the cities which will enable us to open the apps in right place of the specific asset. For example, like Google’s Eddystone which uses a Single SDK in apps making them interactive.
4. Focussing on Sensors:
IoT can be renamed as IoS. Internet of Sensors! According to Steve Taylor, IoT is a long term solution to many existing problems and upcoming problems. An Internet of Sensor is like a tree with roots consisting of all type of extreme sensors feeding and storing data towards the up till the main trunk. If you think about it, people who think about IoT than IoS are the real winners.
5. IoT roots for health:
Making patients wear devices which will read the vital details will help on a large measure in nursing. Using technologies of IoT the traditional waiting and relationship between ‘patient-doctor’ will change and evolve. However, one must be careful about placing sensors inside the human body as anything with a batter will affect the human body on a whole. Therefore, using wireless, ultra-low power sensor technology is recommended which runs on biological sources, heat, radio waves than the other.
6. The war of Platforms:
Building the IoT is about making vigorous sensors to gather information, then utilizing solid and financially savvy remote advances to convey it – in all probability into the cloud. Then again, there’s another fight going on, and that is for the stage. Not a day passes by without another player asserting that their cloud-facilitated stage is best, from Apple’s HomeKit, Google’s Brillo and Intel’s IoTivity to Qualcomm’s AllJoyn, the UPnP Forum and ARM mbed – and numerous, some more.
7. Optimization of sleep:
Do the IoT help you in sleeping? It soon will do. There are more than 9,000 sleeping applications that can monitor the sleep, and even some that naturally switch the lights on and off. Resting will get more quick-witted from now with all the applications being connected between in your room creating a whole dozing environment which helps you for a comfortable sleep. 2016 will also introduce the amazing Samsung SleepSense.However, there is something else called Juvo which is a under-pillow sleep monitor that can collect minute to minute data and process it including the parameters like shade, temperature, sound and air pressure. It will help in alteration. Insomniacs, ain’t it a great thing to listen?
8. Crowdsourcing of data:
To rewrite Crowded House, the IoT will ensure that all around you go, you’ll generally bring a climate station with you. Climate prediction is about continuous information, however; there are just 29,000 customary climate stations around the world, with gigantic holes in creating countries, which makes precise climate determining almost unthinkable. Expect gadgets like the Netatmo Weather Station to spread as the quantity of information is around millions. “The Internet of Things offers new routes in which to gather perceptions,” says Charles Ewen, boss data officer at the Met Office.s Ewen, boss data officer at the Met Office.
With such evolving trends, if you think that IoT doesn’t have a huge impact on 2016; you’re living in 1990’s.
