#1 How Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way we live

 

The Internet of Things has been hailed as the next big thing since the advent of the internet and its not difficult to see why; as technology grows, integration between software and hardware becomes more advanced and innovative, it’s inevitable that IoT will have a big impact on our lives and the way we approach tasks; making it easier, comfortable and better in general.

 

The changes IoT has already made has been major, according to Applied Vision “the number of connected devices expected to grow 12% each year, increasing to 25 billion by 2020 and 125 billion devices by 2030, estimating that IoT spending will reach $772 billion in 2018, representing an increase of more than 14% from 2017.

 

Improved Transport System – Traffic congestion has always been a problem for cities, but thankfully, there are a few IoT solutions to tackle; stoplights with sensors for determining position, traffic data analytics used for analyzing each car’s behavior or transmitting vehicle related-data to city traffic management centers to help create improvements. Better organized traffic systems mean  a better flow of vehicles on the road, less idling cars, buses or trucks in traffic jams.

 

Industrial Growth – The IIoT will reform manufacturing by empowering the procurement and accessibility of far greater amounts of data, at far more prominent speeds, and much more effectively than before. Various innovative organizations have begun to execute the IIoT by leveraging intelligent, connected devices in their processing plants.

 

IoT Solutions Encourage Healthy Lifestyle – There’s still a long way to go for this, however the first important steps in achieving this goal have already been done; healthy habits, proactive condition monitoring, and early disease detection and prevention, as we know, make it much easier to increase life expectancy and enjoyment.

 

Safer Cities – Given the critical importance of security in cities, innovations in the IoT are increasingly improving the safety of city inhabitants. New services such as remotely connected CCTV and automated incident detection allow a quicker response to threats. IoT led crowd management system helps protect city inhabitants in busy, crowded areas. Smart street lighting, which helps lower crime rates and improves driving conditions, is another example of the measures city planners are taking to improve people’s safety.

 

Better Retail Experiences – The integration of IoT solutions will enable retail companies to create a successful marketing campaign based on customer behavior, deliver high-quality services, improve inventory management, and reduce operational costs.

Harvard Business Review published a blog about the Internet of Things (IoT) and markets where IoT has grown strong. Blog author, Simona Jankowski, wrote, “IoT is expected to connect 28 billion “things” to the internet by 2020, ranging from wearable devices such as smartwatches to automobiles, appliances, and industrial equipment.” That kind of development is enough to spur an evolution in how we live on a daily basis.

As of today, we are already quite connected. You can go for a run wearing your fitness tracker to record your endurance, heart rate, and overall activity. When you get home, your house leverages historical data combined with your preset preferences, to automatically adjust the temperature and get the shower going for you. Your shower shuts off, notifying your coffee maker to start brewing and you’re almost ready for your day – all thanks to recent innovations in IoT, but it doesn’t stop there. You drive to work, and your IoT-enabled dashboard in your car notifies you of some bad traffic up ahead, and directs you through an alternative route.

Enjoying how effortless some of life’s menial tasks have become, enables you to move faster in your day-to-day activities and focus on other tasks at your job. The best part is that these devices don’t require you to do much of anything at all. In fact, you may become so dependent on these, that you forget your old ways of doing things. Now, you’re more aware of your health, you live more comfortably, and you get to work a little bit sooner than you used to.

The real value of living with IoT comes from what you can share with others. Data sharing has expanded the possibilities of ways to connect with people. Not only do you get data on how much energy you save with your smart home, but you can also compare how much you save to your friends and neighbors. For businesses, data sharing opens the door to even more ways to monetize the Internet of Things.

Big Data is a buzzword thrown around a lot over the past few years. With the billions of devices that have been predicted to become connected, Big Data is about to get really, really big. “According to computer giant IBM,” as reported by the BCC, “2.5 exabytes – that’s 2.5 billion gigabytes – of data was generated every day in 2012.” For enterprise businesses, this could mean identifying ways to optimize services, cut costs, or even create new services. Take the idea of the Smart City as an example. Existing IoT companies focused on data analytics, hardware, and software are partnering to address this idea, working together to create smarter cities. Imagine if your city could give you status updates on traffic patterns, pollution, parking spaces, water, power, and light – all in real time. Access to that data could improve the economic and environmental health of the city for its entire community. Making connections, and making sense of data generated from those connections, will continue to drive these ideas not just for smart cities, but also for the utilities industry, fleet and automotive, remote monitoring for industrial plants, and so much more.

Most developers, either independent or for an enterprise business, know that monitoring these devices is crucial to ensure optimal performance of your application. With IoT specifically, leveraging third-party APIs will add to the complexity of your environment, making end-to-end visibility extremely vital. Take some advice from experienced developer, Ian Murphy. Murphy writes about the top 5 questions you should ask before using a third-party API. Among these questions, he answers on topics you must think about such as latency and uptime, as well as longevity of support for that API. There are a few other undesirable outcomes from using third party APIs, including poor user experience. Be sure to be thoughtful and thorough to make the most of your connected devices.

The Harvard Business Review concludes that those who “make the connections possible and to process the vast amounts of data” will be the real winners of IoT. However, the real winners of IoT are everyday users and adopters. The more the Internet of Things becomes more accessible to consumers, or the average Joe, the bigger its value will become. The interconnectedness of all ‘things’ will increase the complexity of application environments and introduce terabits on terabits of new data.

With the world moving fast towards being “smart” the possibilities are never-ending. With the combination of Machine Learning and IOTalmost everything is possible. We haven’t even started when it comes to applying internet of things. In the next few years the biggest inventions will be based on the IOT. And the best part is most of those inventions will not be made by scientists or doctors; they will be made by common tech-savvy people. Anyone, with an interest and knowledge in technology and a mind of problem solver can come up with new inventions that will help the entire mankind.

ELIGIBILITY / PRE-REQUISITES

-Basic Computer Knowledge.
-Knowledge on C / C++ / Embedded C wouldbe beneficial, however not mandatory.
