Although IoT isn't a new trend, many aspects of our lives will change forever as we shift towards a digital way of life.
Fremont, CA: The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term that refers to anything connected to the internet. However, it is increasingly being used in recent years to describe objects that "talk" to each other.
These devices collect data, interpret it, and produce an intervention to assist or benefit from a process for someone with a specific mission and help make improvements. Although IoT isn't a new trend, many aspects of our lives will change forever as we shift towards a digital way of life.
Here are three key IoT trends in 2021:
Working from home has become the modern standard for millions of people, and early studies show that workers are resistant to returning to the old way. So, when it comes to working remotely, we should foresee an explosion of applications and smart devices to help us become more efficient.
With higher quality and more immersive video conferencing, we can see an increase in intelligent digital scheduling and calendar resources.
Our health system has been under immense pressure for almost a year. And we have seen a transition to online healthcare to keep both patients and doctors safe. GP surgery, in particular, has turned to telemedicine.
Although the long-term effect of telemedicine is still uncertain, there is no doubt that the use of such technology has been useful for patients who are more vulnerable to different viruses due to age or a weakened immune system.
Telemedicine has also allowed individuals to continue working without taking time off for appointments that generally last less than 10 minutes, which is advantageous not only to employers but also to the workers themselves.
The Maker Movement is a desire that goes back to earlier civilization, in which we turned our hand to making stuff rather than only buying them. And while craft operations such as knitting and pottery making are critical examples of the traditional movement of makers, the IoT has a hand to play as well. DIY electronic systems such as Raspberry Pi are part of this new revolution, allowing users to develop their own computer platforms and exchange ideas and experiences with like-minded individuals.
