Devices are undeniably the irreplaceable part of the planet today. People have got completely used to the idea of being surrounded by ‘things’ that reduce their mechanical efforts in multiple ways. Businesses have also been affected by the technological advancements taking place in the premises as more and more employees take to automating their work processes. Users look forward to incorporating devices in order to be able to be focussed on things that need more genuine attention. There is no denying the fact that most businesses have been impacted by the technological improvement but this is not the only area where it is outsourcing its effects.
Great innovative researches are revolving around the idea of Smart cities. Parking spaces will be automated, vehicles and pedestrian levels will be monitored and rubbish in the cans will be measured by slew of sensors and actuators. All these “stuffs” will be connected to one central control unit where all the data will be saved for analysis, city maintenance and later referrals. Other innovations in the field of smart city planning are Noise Urban Maps, Smartphone Detection, Traffic Congestion, Smart Lighting, Waste Management and Smart Roads. Along with city planning, horde of developments in the area of a smart environment are taking place. These are Forest Fire Detection, Snow Level Monitoring, Landslide and Avalanche Prevention, Earthquake Early Detection and so on.
Other conservation-based activities like Portable water monitoring, Chemical leakage detection in rivers, Swimming pool Remote Management, monitoring Pollution levels in the sea, taking care of water leakages and sensing water level variations during river floods. Agriculture is also undergoing smarter development with the control of micro climate situations in greenhouses, selective irrigation in dry zones and controlling humidity as well as temperature in the compost.
It is a myth that Internet of Things is about devices and 24×7 internet connectivity alone. This concept is about binding the environment to the user, gathering and assimilating data for bringing forth changes and maintaining data for future usage.
