The IoT technology (Internet of Things) is the key driver for the car, home, and office automation. Various organizations use IoT enabled RFID tags to track the movement of goods in transit. Data gathered through the smart IoT devices can be used by countries to manage traffic, reduce pollution, and make better use of the infrastructure. IoT app development companies are creating apps for controlling digital devices using smartphones, wearables, and other smart devices.
Some of the popular IoT applications include smart home app development services , wearables, smart cities, smart grids, industrial internet, connected cars, connected health, smart retail, smart supply chain, and smart farming.
Role of IoT In Making Cities Smarter
Densely populated cities like Tokyo( 37.4 million population), Jakarta(31million), and Delhi (26 million) are facing difficulties in conserving their resources, managing traffic, disposing of the garbage, and reducing air pollution. Data collected through IoT devices can be used to prevent these capital cities from the effects of a growing population. Introducing IoT to these cities improves the quality of life and reduces the consumption of resources.
Smart City Components and their Impact in the IoT Era:
1. Smart Infrastructure
Smart Buildings with IoT Sensors
2. The City Air Management Tool (CyAM):
A cloud-based software-suite by Siemens to capture pollution data in real-time and forecast emissions. It forecasts next three to five days emissions with up to 90% accuracy.
3. Traffic Management
4. Smart Parking
5. Smart Waste Management
Future IoT Applications
1. Vision Van of Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-Benz Vision Van is based on a van concept designed for urban areas. It is the first van worldwide characterized by various next-gen technologies onboard including autonomous drone delivery. The digitally connected process chain uses drones to deliver goods within a radius of ten kilometers. Manual loading takes 2 hours but the automated smart van loads various goods at once within 5 minutes. The drone delivery has reduced the time to deliver goods on the last mile.
2. Smart Eye
Smart eye technology is equipped with smart IoT sensors, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The technology connects with human actions and intentions to interpret reality. Smart eye enables users to access their smartphone features right in front of their eyes without any distraction. It enables users to read messages, browse through the web and more.
