Internet of Things


Internet of Things has a great impact on our lives inside and outside workplace. It is a concept which influences how we work since it has several complexities around itself. 
There’s a lot of noise now about the Internet of Things (or IoT) and its impact on everything from the way we travel and do our shopping to the way manufacturers keep track of inventory. How does it influence our daily lives? 

What is Internet of Things?
The Internet of Things are the concept of connecting a device to the Internet and to the other existing connected devices. The IoT is a giant network of connected things and people – all of which collect and share data about the way they are used and about the environment around them.
That includes extraordinary number of things of all things and sizes. There are connected footballs which can track how far and fast they are thrown and record those statistics via an app for future training purposes. Smart Microwaves automatically cooks food for the right length of time, there are wearable devices which detects fitness and other parameters which behaves like a smart phone and there are self-driving cars which has complex sensors which can detect objects in their path.

IoT solutions
•Enterprise asset management
Bring the power of analytics, IoT and AI to your enterprise operations to reduce risk, lower costs and improve efficiency
•Facilities management
Make more informed business decisions by better understanding your facilities through the use of data, analytics and AI
•Systems engineering
Manage requirements, quality, compliance, change and configuration to lower development costs and get to market faster
•IoT platform
Manage IoT devices and make better decisions using secure, globally distributed data, analytics and cloud capabilities

How does it work?
Devices and objects with built in sensors are connected to an Internet of Things platform, which integrates data from the different devices and applies analytics to share the most valuable information with applications built to address specific needs.
The Internet of Things delivers the data. AI powers the insights. Unlock the power of data with AI and IoT to innovate asset management, optimize real estate and facilities, improve software and systems engineering, and advance your digital transformation.
These powerful IoT platforms can pinpoint exactly what information is useful and what can safely be ignored. This information can be used to detect patterns, make recommendations, and detect possible problems before they occur.
For example, if I own a car manufacturing business, I might want to know which optional components (leather seats or alloy wheels, for example) are the most popular. Using Internet of Things technology, I can:
Use sensors to detect which areas in a showroom are the most popular, and where customers linger longest;
Drill down into the available sales data to identify which components are selling fastest;
Automatically align sales data with supply, so that popular items don’t go out of stock.
The information picked up by connected devices enables me to make smart decisions about which components to stock up on, based on real-time information, which helps me save time and money.
With the insight provided by advanced analytics comes the power to make processes more efficient. Smart objects and systems mean you can automate certain tasks, particularly when these are repetitive, mundane, time-consuming or even dangerous. Let’s look at some examples to see what this looks like in real life.

IoT in part lifecycle, tracking and maintenance:
Whether as a cog in a machine or a component of an end product, individual objects (or parts) can provide critical information as to the state of the product they form. Connected sensors and sophisticated analytics within individual components could track part provenance right from the manufacturing process to the end of their useful life – sharing data on how the component should be maintained and how it has responded to frequent use.

Building management
Connected sensors build up a wealth of useful data as to the function of particular systems within a building. Lights, for instance, or air conditioning, or security alarms. This data forms a log of how the building is accessed and used, which can be shared with its owner, tenants and building management teams.

Energy consumption
For those who want to offset their carbon footprint on the carbon credit exchange, IoT provides a way of accurately tracking and trading carbon credits and energy consumption.

IoT for regulatory compliance
IoT technology could help regulatory agencies share usage and maintenance information on particular products and make compliance documents instantly available to manufacturers and individuals who need them.

Iot at Home:
A connected or IoT-enabled alarm clock would reset itself based on all factors, to ensure you got to work on time. It could recognize that your usual train is cancelled, calculate the driving distance and travel time for your alternative route to work, check the weather and factor in slower travelling speed because of heavy rain, and calculate when it needs to wake you up so you’re not late. If it’s super-smart, if might even sync with your IoT-enabled coffee maker, to ensure your morning caffeine’s ready to go when you get up.
