TOP IOT TRENDS- In layman’s terms, the Internet of things (IoT) is a connected network that spreads the exchange of information quickly inside local area networks (LANs) and wide-area networks (WANs) and wired connections like Ethernet, without the need for human interaction.
From mobile communications to health care centers, IoT is seamlessly drafting each industry. The 2020s is the age for this application and currently, it is on a hot streak. Here is a look at how this industry continues to transform our present lifestyle and impact its future.
1. Telecommunications: With the rollout of 5G in the coming years, the number of connected devices and mainstream IoT applications will reach multiply. And this holds the power to redefine our lives in the hyper-connected world. This along with Wi-Fi 6 also known as 802.11ax will propel connectivity with better network velocity.
As a result, one can expect a push by telecom giants to switch for 4K+5G for better bandwidth and lower latency. Along with this Starlink by SpaceX will enter the mainstream market to provide users with high-speed internet.
2. Virtual Assistance: Working hand in hand with AI, now it can collect input in multilingual mode, thereby enabling people to interact in their mother tongue which may not be a global language. Although making a voice assistant multilingual can be challenging yet it is the need of the hour.
It is predicted that these wake word functioning assistants can soon act on auditory signals which are not voice commands to help the user and connect more on a real-life basis. E.g. if Alexa hears your car driving through the gate, as soon as you enter your house, it may be greeting you in a cheerful tone and ask about your day or may instruct coffee maker to brew a fresh cup of cappuccino.
3. Smart-Cities: From ancient civilization to modern metropolitan, technological advancement has generally converged in cities. IoT provides scope for better cities which entails smart lighting, smart irrigation, automated valet parking, environment sensible to check pollution levels and waste generation. Mixed usage of the land, to promote area wise development, walkable localities, Transit-Oriented development, application of smart solutions to infrastructure and housing and sustainable use of resources will landscape the urban matrix. In addition to that, it will make better use of infrastructure and ensure the safety of residents.
