The passage of time is something inevitable, as well as technological evolution. One of the technological advances that affect us most directly in our homes is the Internet of Things or IoT (Internet of Things). The interconnection of devices (thanks to the Internet) offers a wide range of improvements that will directly affect our day today.
Every day, there are more professionals in charge of devising and carrying out developments in the field of the internet of things. One of the demanded profiles is one of the superior technicians in Development of Application.
The Internet of Things is essential
Not long ago, we lived without a smartphone and today it seems impossible to live without the application recommended by the nearest restaurants or the application with the weather forecast. These are just some of the uses we will give to the Internet of things, sooner rather than later:
1. A smart refrigerator
Now our refrigerator is connected up by the Internet of Things. It can tell us what foods are running out and what to place the order. The products that are finished in the refrigerator will fill up at the scheduled time so that you never miss anything.
2. Appliances that notify the mobile
Not only does the refrigerator become smarter. Some appliances will take care of when you away for your work. For example, when the oven finishes cooking or the washing machine has finished with the clothes, you will receive a notice on the mobile phone. The burnt biscuits or the wrinkled clothes in the washing machine will be finished.
3. Clean and ready food
What a pleasure your home welcomes you and all the tasks already done. The vacuum robots or kitchen robots can perform remotely or previously scheduled program. If we forget to activate the heating or the house alarm, we can do it comfortably far away from anywhere we are, through the mobile.
4. Useful information while driving
The car connected to the Internet will give us the best route in real time, it will remind us to go to the gas station when we are running out of fuel. Even when we look for parking, it will tell us where there are free spaces to park.
5. Plantation & Farming
Internet of Things has extremely opened up for farmers and growers to cultivate the soil and raise livestock by easily install a sensor. Smart application promise to provide 24/7 of soil and crop health, animal behavior, and energy consumption level, etc. Smart farming products can track livestock, detect any failure of production systems, analyze mapping. There is no doubt that IoT-assisted applications improve & optimize farm performance.
6. IoT in Gardening
You might not be thinking much about how IoT innovation involves gardening. Now a smart garden is introduced where soil sensors can regulate sprinkler to the tuned water supply. Potential toxic pesticides become more simplified with IoT. By using sensor and smart cameras device can detect weeds, insects, and animal threats and take necessary response individually.
The internet of things evolves in 2019
The universe of the Internet of Things (IoT) is undergoing a new transformation when it achieves the unexpected: from medical prostheses to tectonic plates, and this year we can see how the potential of the IoT lands to improve the quality of the life of the people.
The IoT is also connecting the bees, or rather, their combs. A pilot test was developed to create a solution that records humidity, temperature and other aspects of the hive to monitor their health status. Today it is possible to track and manage the data of a hive to be analyzed and take the necessary actions to improve its performance.
2. Messenger robots
Do you need secure shipments? Call your robot. At & T worldwide, they are working with a company that develops robots and autonomous vehicles to provide connectivity to their creations. The objective is to create a fleet that can deliver packages and food at home in urban areas. Although it is still too early for their full operation, these robots can now deliver over short distances to allow human dispatchers to take care of long distances.
3. Office furniture
If you are one of those people who constantly beat their knees against the desk because of their height or, on the contrary, all the time battles with your chair to gain height, we have good news: now the workspaces will automatically adjust to your measurements, be it an office or a station. We are collaborating with a company to create intelligent workspaces, with furniture connected throughout the world. This will allow companies to maximize the use of their assets.
4. Portable bathrooms
AT & T Foundry is working with one of the leading construction companies to develop a battery with an IoT device that keeps portable toilets clean. The sensors of the device detect the movement inside the bathrooms, if there is movement in the installation it means that the place is clean, but if the door is slammed, it is likely to need cleaning. This will help eliminate the bad smell on a day-to-day basis.
5. Luggage carts
During the holiday season, airports are more crowded and although most passengers do not think about the internal operation of these places, many things must happen so that there are no setbacks. Groundhandling personnel drives on all platforms in search of lost luggage carts.
AT & T works with a company to offer a solution that allows airline operators to track the location and use of carts, as well as carry passengers’ luggage to their destinations. The objective is to implement baggage management in one place.
6. Tectonic plates
We are making “smarter” mountains and islands. A non-profit organization, in partnership with universities, has begun to place sensors on the geological plates to detect seismic activity throughout North America, the Caribbean, and South America. Thanks to the global connectivity of AT & T, when the sensors on the plates detect activity, earthquake alerts are launched and seismic activity, in general, is investigated.
7. Extremity prosthesis
People who have experienced the loss of a member face a journey into the unknown to find a way to regain mobility. Some people do not know where to start or do not communicate to the doctors responsible for their prosthesis the challenges they face, and consequently, do not use them. AT & T and a leading company in solutions and orthopedic care and prosthetics, work on the prototype of the first independent prostatic device connected to the network, to improve visibility and communication with patients.
This device is synchronized directly to the cloud, through the AT & T network allowing the clinic dedicated to patient care to receive data on the use of prostheses.
With these data, it is possible to monitor patients and address potential problems that may impact the use of prostheses, such as physical condition, comfort, increase mobility and thus help patients in their daily lives.
The future is closer than we think. Very soon, we will all have these advances in our own home. Do you know any other, of everyday use, that you want to share?
