The internet of things concept is going to be the future

Posted by ChrisPenn on November 22nd, 2016

The world has made rapid strides on the industrial front since the time of the Industrial Revolution. The objective of the Industrial Revolution was to reduce the dependence on human labor. At the same time, you can have an increase in the efficiency levels as well when you use machines to do the job. Secondly, you save valuable time in the bargain. Today, the technology has made tremendous strides with the internet all over us. The internet controls practically every industry today. You see automation everywhere. However, you still see an element of human labor in all these activities. The world is moving towards a complete automation process where there would not be the involvement of human labor. This would involve the machines to communicate with each other over the internet. This is the concept of the internet of things. 

The basic concept

The internet of things concept is a wide one. You have a host of machinery and appliances all around you. It could be in the industry as well as in your home. When you confine the concept to the industry, you can refer to the same as the industrial internet of things concept also referred to as IIoT.    

When machines communicate with each other, they would have to share data. Based on the transfer of data, it would do the analysis and come up with the solutions using a process known as artificial intelligence. The applications of the IIoT would spread all over the industrial world across a range of industries. These industries include the private and the public sector as well.

A simple example

The IIoT concept would have myriad uses. You can keep on churning example after example. However, the main objective of the machines working under this concept would be to save time and human labor. The level of accuracy of data also plays a great role in it. One of the best examples of the uses of the internet of things would be the working of a Bank ATM. The customer has to swipe a card with a magnetic strip. The ATM machine reads the data and asks for the confirmation from the customer regarding the genuineness of the transaction. On providing the same, it corresponds with the bank server to check the authenticity. On confirmation, it proceeds further by asking the customer to key in his request. The ATM machine is in contact with the bank all the time for checking the available funds in the account etc. Subsequently, it makes the payment by authorizing the bank to debit the customer’s account. This might be a simple example of the internet of things. You can find many complex examples as well. 

Final words

This is the future of the industry. In the future, the industry would be depending more on the internet alone for its information and analysis. We are fast approaching the days when you would require the human labor either to design these machines or to exercise overall control. Hence, in order to move with the trend, more industries are embracing this technology of the industrial internet of things.
