IoT (i.e., the Internet of Things) is a relatively new and increasingly popular branch of technology. It has been hailed as the next technological revolution and has extended the connection between computers and people to include a variety of digitally connected “things.”
Measurement and Transmission of Data
These digitally connected things quantify, collect and send data through the internet by means of sensors. If the sensor is a simple device such as a temperature monitoring device, the sent data can consist of simple streams of data or numbers. However, more complex IoT-enabled devices can measure and simultaneously send and receive multiple streams of data.
Benefits of IOT
Corporate firms and business concerns have begun to incorporate IoT into some areas. However, many firms are still hesitant to invest in this amazing and versatile technology. The following are some of the benefits of IOT in Michigan.
Automation of Marketing Strategies
IOT seeks to improve the reach and automation of marketing strategies. Some mobile apps such as Apple’s iBeacon, create a database of information that collects data about customer’s intentions, locations, buying patterns, product preferences, etc. Based on this information, the device makes use of targeted marketing practices to suggest products and services that are useful to the user.
Monitoring of Patient’s Condition
IOT is of enormous benefit in the healthcare industry. Different kinds of wireless sensors can be installed on the bodies of ailing individuals to monitor their response to medication and raise the alarm in the event of failure of a critical body part. These sensors can communicate with an IoT network and send relevant information to the medical personnel overseeing the treatment of the patient.
Other Uses of IOT
Firms and business concerns can implement IOT in the following areas
- Real-time tracking and monitoring of marketing strategies.
- Improved situational awareness.
- Optimization of processes.
- Decision analytics that is sensor-driven.
- Instantaneous response and control of complicated autonomous systems.
- Optimization of resource consumption.
IOT can also be incorporated into security devices and used to remotely monitor and control them. Such devices include security alarms, CCTVs, door locks, etc.
