Innovative IoT Applications
Francesca Brady

The term Internet of Things (IoT) initially appeared more than twenty years ago, although some people still consider it to be a new abstract or experimental concept. Over the past few years, an increasing number of inspiring IoT applications have been rapidly appearing in the marketplace.

Here are some of our favourites:

Safer transport

Traffic accidents sadly account for a tremendous loss of life every year, which is why integrated information systems that can help to protect passengers and goods are so valuable. Modern systems have the ability to receive/ send information from/ to countless sources including digital signs, cars, and CCTV cameras placed in key locations.

By collating data from millions of users 24/7, Google uses real-time data via its location services feature in conjunction with it’s advanced mapping system to help direct traffic in a more coordinated manner and help users avoid traffic jams.

In addition to huge advances in transport related information systems, the driverless car concept is also rapidly maturing and could provide a much safer mode of mainstream transportation in the future. The race is on to produce the first ‘fully-driverless’ car, by that definition, the vehicle needs to navigate to a location while avoiding obstacles, then park, all without any human intervention. It’s currently estimated that this technology will be available in the next 10-20 years and a range of prototypes are currently being developed by major brands including Lexus, Google, BMW, Apple and Mercedes.

Smart parking

Imagine if your car knew which parking spot was free before you even entered the car park, or which parking was located close by. This is no longer such a futuristic vision, since some smart parking solutions already exist, although they are far from being the universally accepted standard. Since the advantages of cloud-based parking space management are so tangible, it wouldn’t be too ambitious to expect entire cities to start implementing these useful features.

Wind farm management

To produce wind-based electricity on a serious scale, it is necessary to actively manage a large number of turbines, this work is usually carried out remotely. Built-in sensors can measure a number of vital parameters, reporting them back to the database where they are permanently stored.  Without this possibility, it would be very effort-intensive (if not impossible) to control and maintain large wind farms that feature dozens of individual turbines dispersed over a wide geographic area.

Smart Agriculture

As the population continues to expand, agriculture is rapidly becoming a far more automated industry.  Smart farming utilises IoT technology to enhance productivity and reduce waste. Farmers can now remotely monitor the conditions of their fields; from water levels, to light and humidity. IoT technology provides great insight and makes real time data easily accessible via a mobile phone. It is already being used to monitor the health of cattle, ensure water usage is efficient and track vehicles. Drones also have an important role to play in the future of agriculture and are currently being used to help improve the health of crops and prevent the spread of disease. Innovative IoT solutions are becoming more common place and helping to alleviate the growing challenges of modern day farming.

Remote health monitoring

Medical science is a field where IoT technology can potentially make the greatest contribution to humanity, providing additional support or even saving lives. For example, a patient with a chronic heart condition would benefit immensely from wearing a wireless device that measures his/ her pulse and other biological indicators, alerting doctors to critical changes. Even healthy people can use similar technology to keep track of their bodies and receive an early warning if anything goes wrong.

Environmental protection

While most people relate IoT with smart machines, this technology paradigm can actually be used to monitor the ecosystem and raise alarms whenever there is a risk of contamination. Systems for controlling water and air quality have already been developed and implemented within natural environments.

IoT systems using motion sensors have also been used to study the movement patterns of wildlife and determine the range that certain species inhabit, a task that previously required capturing animals manually and marking them for identification.

It is evident that smart technology is beginning to penetrate almost every industry, creating huge savings and realising previously unfeasible ideas. At Asset Mapping, we help make smart buildings that are cheaper to operate, kinder to the environment and healthier to work in. To discover how we can help you, contact us today.
