In recent times IoT started to become popular as consumer and industrial products became available all over the world.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution will be one of the most interesting topics discussed during the 2019 World Economic Forum. The main aim is to continue the development of a world that is evolving in order to be more transparent, effective and independent. IoT place a critical role in this equation by providing access to clear information.
Current businesses are embracing IoT systems that allow them to monitor and optimize their workflow in order to boost overall performance. As IoT continue to expand a new type of cross-industry will appear, one in which the sides share common goals and interest that benefit both the shareholders and the general public at the same time.
Below you can find some of the main benefits provided by IoT systems.
- Improved security for work environments
Work environments are filled with a wide variety of safety hazards. A comprehensive IoT array is able to measure important factors like air purity, the level of humidity and the amount of lighting that is present in a given area. Wearable accessories will ensure the safety of workers and signal any potential issues in order to avoid unfortunate events.
- Better healthcare services
IoT devices can be used by doctors in order to monitor and treat patients in real-time without the need to bring them to their office or visit them at home. This has the potential to reduce the pressure placed on the healthcare system and reduce ongoing costs.
- Anticipate and prevent natural disasters
Seismic sensors are already able to anticipate earthquakes and a wide array of different sensors are currently in development.
- Boost delivery speed for commercial services
IoT sensors can be used in order to monitor vehicle movement and optimize transportation routes in real-time, allowing companies to reduce fuel costs and minimize delays.
A united ecosystem will pave to way to real progress but an effective strategy will be needed in order to facilitate the transition.
