What are the areas of IoT applications?

What are the areas of IoT applications?

The recently released "2018 Internet of Things Industry Application Research Report" has compiled the development of the Internet of Things industry, including logistics, transportation, security, energy, medical, construction, manufacturing, home, retail and agriculture. Let's take a look at the combination of this field and the Internet of Things from different fields.

1. Logistics

Under the support of the Internet of Things, big data and artificial intelligence, all aspects of logistics have been able to perform system awareness, comprehensive analysis and processing.

The application in the field of Internet of Things is mainly warehousing, transportation monitoring, and express delivery terminals.

Combined with Internet of Things technology, it can monitor the temperature and humidity of goods and the location, status, fuel consumption and speed of transportation vehicles. From the perspective of transportation efficiency, the level of intelligence in the logistics industry has been improved.

2. Traffic

The combination of Internet of Things and transportation is mainly reflected in the close integration of people, vehicles and roads, which improves the traffic environment, ensures traffic safety, and improves resource utilization to a certain extent.

Specific applications in smart buses, shared bicycles, car networking, charging pile monitoring, intelligent traffic lights, smart parking and so on. The more competitive aspect of Internet companies is the Internet of Vehicles.

3, security

People still attach great importance to safety, so the security market is also very large.

Traditional security relies on manpower, while smart security can take advantage of equipment and reduce reliance on people. The core is the intelligent security system, which mainly includes access control, alarm, monitoring, and video surveillance. At the same time, the system can transfer stored images and analyze and process them.

4. Energy and environmental protection

In terms of energy and environmental protection, the combination with the Internet of Things includes environmental protection devices such as water, electricity, gas, and street lamps, manhole covers, and trash cans.

The smart manhole cover monitors the water level and the smart water meter can take readings remotely. Networking water, electricity, and light energy equipment can increase utilization and reduce unnecessary losses.

5, medical

The use of Internet of Things technology can obtain data and can complete the intelligent management of people and things.

In the medical field, in terms of medical wearable devices, data can be formed into electronic files for easy access. Wearable devices can monitor people's heart rate, physical exertion, and blood pressure through sensors.

RFID technology can be used to monitor medical equipment and medical supplies, and to realize visualization and digitization of hospitals.

6, construction

The combination of architecture and Internet of Things is reflected in energy conservation. Similar to the management of hospital medical equipment, smart buildings can sense building equipment and save energy while reducing the cost of operation and maintenance personnel.

Specifically, it is electricity lighting, fire monitoring, smart elevators, building monitoring and so on.

7, manufacturing

The manufacturing sector covers a wide range of industries. The combination of manufacturing and Internet of Things, mainly digital, intelligent factories, with mechanical equipment monitoring and environmental monitoring. Environmental monitoring is temperature and humidity and smoke.

Equipment manufacturers can remotely upgrade maintenance equipment, understand usage, and collect other information about the product, which will facilitate future product design and after-sales.

8, home

The combination of home and Internet of Things has led many smart home-based companies to move toward physical and physical linkages. The development of the smart home industry is first of all a single product connection, the object and object linkage is in the middle stage, and the final stage is platform integration.

Using IoT technology, you can monitor the location, status, and changes of home products, and analyze and feedback.

9, retail

The combination of retail and IoT is reflected in unmanned convenience stores and vending machines. Smart retailing digitalizes vending machines and convenience stores in the retail sector to form an unmanned retail model. Thereby, labor costs can be saved and operational efficiency can be improved.

10. Agriculture

The integration of agriculture and the Internet of Things is manifested in agricultural planting and animal husbandry. Agricultural planting uses sensors, cameras, and satellites to facilitate the digital development of crops and machinery.

Animal husbandry collects data through ear tags, wearable devices, cameras, and then analyzes and uses algorithms to determine the status of livestock and poultry, and accurately manages the health, feeding, location, and estrus of livestock and poultry.

Using IoT technology to acquire data and use cloud technology, edge computing, and artificial intelligence technology to analyze and process can make our lives more digital and intelligent. As an entry point for obtaining data, the Internet of Things has great potential for development.
