What Has Changed Recently With Engineers?
Get These Basic Facts about the Engineering Internet Of Things
It is projected that by 2020, millions and billions of smart electronic devices would interact with each other even without the intervention of humans through the internet, and this network of electronic devices interacting is termed as the Internet of Things or IoT. It is said, that between now and 2020, the IoT being developed would consist of PCs, tablet computers, digital cameras, e-Book readers, mobile phones, robots, private and public computers and other smart electronic devices.
These developments of IoT would have several impacts, benefits and costs in our lives.
The following advantages on the IoT to our lives will be discussed here briefly.
One benefit that humans can get from IoT is automation which is said to be reaching a very high level that will affect certainly our lifestyles. The changes that the engineering experts are referring to here would relate to the high level of comfort in our lives, like travelling less physically, and more time can be dedicated to our first occupations, relaxation, rest and vacations.
Examples of an IoT age that you would appreciate is when your PC would automatically order your groceries as soon as it detects a falling below the set levels, or a specialized robot in your home that will verify your visitors and open the door for them without you having to do the task.
Cost savings is another benefit that is said that we will get because of the inherent efficiency of electronic networks and the elimination of processes and jobs involving trade, thereby giving the economy a positive status and reducing goods and services.
Because of the application of IoT, we will experience great benefits relating to the increase of speed and productivity, and in the process, savings will occur, sensors will free humans from conducting some tasks and there will be an enhanced productivity. For example, you do not need to remember when to turn off your oven, or switch on and off the lights in your room, or worry of not turning off your AC when you leave your home, because all of these will be done by the systems in your home, for you. With the help of motion sensors or facial recognition, the goal of IoT is in automating our lives with the improvement in efficiency of these areas.
It is further envisioned that the Internet of Things will have a big impact on the digital businesses while facilitating new models of businesses and improving efficiency.
As of the present, the IoT technologies and business models that are supporting it are still not at its mature stage, but even so, they are already being utilized by a wide range of organizations.
