Real IoT examples
July 6, 2015 § 2 Comments
If you’re like me you’ve heard lots about Internet of Things (IoT) but maybe you haven’t seen it in action. I’ve had 2 recent clients implementing IoT and to me they’re just starting to scratch the surface. One is a garage door opener company that has introduced IoT into their door openers to allow users to check that their door is closed through a mobile device. They’re using this same technology to allow gated communities to leverage mobile devices to open the gates and keep them secure at the same time. And they’re looking to do even more.
A second client is focused on telemetrics, that is capturing data from remote devices and sending it for central processing. They’ve been using this to track locations of assets such as trucks or containers, and they’re looking to extend even further. The technology and process are widely applicable, which is why they’re currently focused on scale and security of the architecture to ensure it can support 1M devices.
With how things are interconnected today and getting more so everyday, I’m sure we’ll start seeing many more examples of IoT in action regularly.
