Smart wearables, cameras, and linked devices will continue to change the way healthcare is provided, from telemedicine to automated home support for the elderly and disabled.
Fremont, CA: One of the most influential tech phenomena that have arisen in recent years is the Internet of Things (IoT). It refers to the fact that while the word ‘internet’ originally means the wide-scale networking of machines, today, on a global scale, devices of all sizes and shapes, from cars to kitchen appliances to industrial machinery, are digitally linked and exchange information.
Automation via IoT-enabled devices will continue to increase in the vast fulfillment centers that transport inventory to shops. Contact-free payment options will also become highly prevalent as we advance further towards the “cashless society” that has been anticipated to arrive for some time now, bringing with it its own obstacles.
Healthcare Investment in IoT to Skyrocket
Smart wearables, cameras, and linked devices will continue to change the way healthcare is provided, from telemedicine to automated home support for the elderly and disabled. In circumstances where the risk of viral infection is incredibly high, such as nursing homes and infectious disease wards inside hospitals, it may also be used to avoid unwanted contact.
IoT Means More Productive WFH
For those of us in the information economy, work-from-home is the new standard these days because of security issues about large numbers of people gathering in offices and city centers. IoT ensures that assets can be more easily controlled remotely where businesses still need a physical presence. In the case of most manufacturing, industrial, and logistics operations, providing peace of mind that automated machinery can continue its function, and when their involvement is required, human engineers or maintenance workers can be notified.
