Growing Influence of IoT in 2019
Internet of things (IoT) is not relatively a new thing and still, it is constantly making our jaws drop. IoT and artificial intelligence have touched almost every aspect of our lives. According to research there are already 23.14 billion IoT connected devices in the world with no sign of stopping. There are a few noticeable factors which predict that IoT can see significant growth and dominate in few digital marketplaces.
IoT will change the face of healthcare institutions with progress in IoT medicine, glucose monitoring sensors, drug delivery and adherence, ingestible sensors. Doctors will be able to track the health of patients in real time, share medical information, predict and diagnose patients with greater precision and accuracy. Another reason IoT adoption in healthcare organizations is an increased return on investment for care organizations that opt to embrace IoT.
Cities and companies will increasingly adopt smart technologies to save time, money and to improve security and business. Cities will be able to automate, remotely manage, and collect data through visitor kiosks, video camera surveillance systems, bike rental stations, and taxis. Smart traffic lights and smart traffic systems will provide beneficial real-time analysis.
Artificial Intelligence will grow
Smart home hubs, thermostats, lighting systems, and even coffee makers might collect data on a person’s patterns of usage. Voice-controlled devices collect and store the commands and instructions given by the user into the cloud. Further analysis of these voice commands helps facilitate machine learning.
5G Networks will continue to fuel IoT growth
5G, fifth-generation cellular wireless will provide greater speed and the ability connect more smart devices at the same time. Faster networks mean the data accumulated by your smart devices will be gathered, analyzed and managed better. Major wireless carriers will switch to 5G networks in 2019
The arrival of 5G will shift gears of the auto industry with the development of driverless cars. Equipped sensors will be able to monitor everything in a vehicle like the pressure of the tires, fuel level, monitor security and even alert the driver if anything goes wrong with the engine.
Surveillance as a service
Cities might adopt video sensors as part of their IoT strategy to have an enhanced ability to improve operations, save time and money, and increase public safety. Surveillance-as-a-service and inspection-as-a-service models will be implemented, with a new wave of multi-purpose IoT devices that include cellular-enabled cameras.
2019 should be a good year to stakeholders in the IoT ecosystem as there will be a significant increase in connected devices and a rise in intelligent automation.
