Future of the Internet of Things (IoT)

October 10, 2022 / Digital Transformation

The future of IoT might just be everything to look forward to!

IoT is no more the future. Not after we have been seeing it make drastic progress in the world of technology around us for the past decade. The future of IoT might simply be a huge leap forward in integrally changing the way we perceive all the technology around us completely. We’re already highly interdependent on the smart functions they bring into the picture with respect to the appliances we use every day. IoT devices connect over a local network and help us control every smart device around us from the comfort of our smartphones or even pass our command by simply voicing it out.

This applies to TVs, Air conditioners, electronic appliances, lighting, and even wearables which can help us keep track of our heart rates and other bodily functions. The major advantage of IoT is that they are integrally smart with assorted intelligence to make way towards two-way communication within the network.

What is IoT?

Internet of Things simply refers to all the physical devices deployed in an interconnected environment utilizing the power of the internet and all of them being able to identify themselves as devices.

These devices work through data transfer to common systems like a computer or software that happens over sensors, thus allowing them to perform important tasks on command.

IoT and the future – what to expect?

1. Accelerated power of 5G

Improving wireless connectivity is the basic scope of 5G. And it also offers the potential to improve connectivity between devices with minimal lag as possible.  There are a lot of scopes when IoT and 5G are accessed together as a system. The solutions can be even as huge a breakthrough as the interconnectivity of moving vehicles for better regulation, communication, and management of traffic grids.

2. Metaverse

Imagine a highly connected virtual space where all your physical devices work just the same even in a stimulating environment. Sounds very promising right? To reimagine a world that’s physically not present but might functionally be the same as the one we live in. The entire nature of the workforce, meetings, parties, and social gatherings might all just be altered forever in just a matter of time.

3. Smart cities

Sustainability is one of the core foundations of a city that you can deem smart. There are already a lot of urban planners who are also digital transformation experts like YCSPL who have been studying, researching, and integrating the power of IoT into the fundamentals of strategizing. An organized and systematic way of managing resources, assets, and areas is all possible with improved data reliance. The future of IoT is highly looked up to because it can drastically enhance our quality of living just like how the internet did not so long ago.

4. Automotive applications

Driverless cars, hands-free driving, fleet management, and improved vehicular connectivity are all possible through IoT applications. The demand for tech-integrated EVs is already on the rise. There are now cars that offer ‘internet inside’ and it might just take a bit of time till they all together operate as one through the power of the internet.

5. The smart eye

Remember Google’s most expected and ambitious project – the glass? It focuses on pulling out data right in front of our eyesight while also minimizing hindrances. Anything from your maps or messages can be displayed right in front of your eyes while also keeping you fully engrossed, presented, and connected to the actual surrounding you’re in.

Why do we need IoT

1. Informed decisions

future of the Internet of Things

IoT simply helps us with data abundance that can all be quantified and these metrics can help us make a lot of informed decisions. For example, let’s take an everyday utility appliance like the fridge. Any smart devices integrated with the power of the Internet of Things will help us keep a record of diverse data including the average temperature, power consumption, storage patterns of different food items before they perish, the air quality inside the fridge and even help you decide your defrosting and cleaning up schedules.

2. A thorough track of things

By keeping a keen eye on things backed by increased data collection, you can monitor the quality of different appliances and their functional efficiency without having to actually take a constant second look at them every now and then. You’ll also know when exactly to replace an item or go for maintenance schedules.

3. Lesser workload

With all the appliances around us inherently becoming smart all by themselves, human intervention with respect to domestic things might just be off the picture. Imagine your fridge understanding that you’re running out of milk and ordering it for you just in time. Sounds very helpful right?

4. Saves time, money, and resources

The avenues for the machine to machine communication are just increasing and this can help you do things a whole lot differently than how we go about it now. Imagine all your electric appliances turning themselves off or going into a power-saving mode when there is no consumption or right when you walk out through the door.

5. Better lifestyle

Technology has crept its way inside our homes for one sole reason, to make us reach a comfortable state of living where everything at our disposal does all the work all by itself involving lesser physical dependency. IoT does just the same while also taking the whole effort a lot forward by being more human in their approach with their own intelligence and thinking capacity to make decisions on our behalf.

At YCSPL, we have a separate R&D section dedicated to exploring all the possible avenues to welcome the future of IoT!
