The Internet Of Things In The Real World - 5 Recent Examples
The Internet of Things (IoT) is quickly becoming a necessary part of people's daily lives. Slowly, but surely, our world has become better connected via the Internet. The prevalence of IoT has come to such a point that physical objects now have digital footprints and can be controlled with digital and smart technology. And while a number of IoT applications have yet to be realized, many more have become staple in the modern age, in marketing automation and beyond. We take a look at examples of the Internet of Things in action in the real world. 1. Data analysis Data has become the most important aspect of marketing, operations, and the industry in recent years. Companies are working overtime to collect as much data as possible for demographic segmentation and to examine it in depth to improve their ongoing processes. And where does this data come from? Mainly through devices connected via the Internet of Things. But data on its own is of little value: data needs to be analyzed in depth to understand trends and patterns, and for analysts to glean the most relevant statistics. In other words, a system is needed to understand what the data collected means for businesses and how it can be used to optimize the customer lifecycle. Analyzing data can be tedious and time consuming work. For human staff to be tasked with analyzing the reams of collected data, companies would have to set aside a lot of time and energy that they don't have. 

This is why so many companies are turning to IoT applications, such as ThingSpeak, Zatar, Google Cloud, GroveStreams, which make the analysis process much faster and more efficient. IoT applications use Consumer Email List machine learning assistance, sensors, and beacons to gather, decipher, and categorize data. In conjunction with other analysis software and resources, data can be further analyzed for reporting and creating an effective project plan. 2. Agriculture and IoT Smart agriculture has taken the agricultural world by storm in recent years. Devices, machines and even vehicles have become connected through IoT and as a result have improved farming efficiency, become less labor intensive, and have improved average order value. The IoT is deployed in agriculture through the use of robots, labels, sensors, vehicles and autonomous drones. Drones, in particular, save farmers a lot of time and labor. Not so long ago, farmers would have had to physically walk around their farms to understand which crops were thriving or failing. Now, drones fly over farms, sharing live aerial footage of the farm, as well as data on areas that need special attention. Drones can even deliver pesticides and fertilizers to selected areas using lasers for precise delivery. Additionally, thanks to IoT technology, farmers are able to better track weather, soil, and other natural events that could impact their crop yields. Farmers can also monitor the condition of their crops at any time. IoT apps find and analyze real-time crop data, which is then fed back to farmers for adjustments. 

IoT in healthcare The Internet of Things has had a huge impact on healthcare systems around the world and we are seeing the results now. A number of healthcare IoT applications use RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags embedded in the skin of cancer patients. They are also connected to Bluetooth activity trackers worn by patients. These beacons monitor patients at all times and share real-time data with caregivers and physicians. With IoT technology, caregivers and physicians are able to identify health changes and side effects faster than ever. The IoT is also used to monitor glucose levels in diabetic patients. These trackers are connected to smartphones and watches, giving patients regular updates so they never miss a dose. This information is also used to fill out online forms so patients don't have to enter everything from scratch. In addition, insulin pens and pumps are also connected to IoT trackers that monitor and record the amount of insulin a patient needs and deliver the right dose at the right time. In healthcare, the IoT is already making huge strides in helping patients and physicians monitor their well-being so they get the care they need, when they need it. And that's just the start: IoT is poised to expand smart health technology beyond our imaginations in a few years. 4. IoT in manufacturing In manufacturing, IoT has become an essential aspect of how industries operate. Integrating IoT into the day-to-day operation of a manufacturing plant or supply chain has made a number of tasks possible, for large and small industries alike. For example, manufacturing companies are investing heavily in IoT for inventory management. Before IoT was a possibility, most manufacturing companies had to rely on manual methods to track and manage their assets. Earlier processes would have required asset managers to create handwritten systems to track their assets, which would have been noted in ledgers and spreadsheets.
