The Internet of Things is increasingly present in the daily lives of users. As we know, they are all those devices that we have in our homes and that are connected to the network. But they are also part of industries, of organizations of all kinds, in cities … In this article we echo a report that shows what we can expect from IoT devices for next year.
How the Internet of Things will advance in the coming months
As time goes by we can see more and more uses of this type of equipment. Also more devices that make up what we call the Internet of Things. They facilitate the day-to-day life of domestic users, offer solutions to companies and organizations, adapt a city to be more intelligent and technological …
As we can see, there are many uses that we can give to this type of equipment. It is to be hoped that for next year there will be news, there will be certain trends that will be more present. What will those main changes be? From Forbes they have presented a report with some predictions.
Improvements in the healthcare industry
Undoubtedly everything related to health has gained a very important weight in recent months. Everything related to the Covid-19 pandemic has brought great changes to the daily lives of users.
Hopefully, the Internet of Things will bring exciting advances and changes in health. The telemedicine , home help automated, will have a greater presence in the coming months. Smart wearable devices, sensors, connected equipment… The main objective will be to minimize physical contact between people, something so important these days.
The Covid-19 pandemic is going to accelerate some of these changes and there the Internet of Things is going to play a very important role.
Changes in remote work
Another issue that has become very important in recent months is teleworking . Many users have started to carry out their functions remotely. Again, the main goal is to maintain social distancing and avoid crowds.
The Internet of Things, through different platforms, will allow this process to be more effective, better adapted to current times and also offer different possibilities.
Internet of Things in retail
Yes, they also expect from Forbes that there will be changes in retail . IoT devices are going to make stores safer and more efficient. In many cases stores have had to close due to restrictions. However, thanks to technology, many have adapted.
We can see it, for example, in many hotels that have decided to use automated machines to check in customers. In this way contact between people is reduced. Also others that have automated devices to sell their products. All this will gain a very important weight in 2021 and there the Internet of Things will be very present.
We said it at the beginning of this article: the Internet of Things also helps to create smarter and more technological cities . In 2021 this is expected to take a significant leap. Devices to monitor traffic of both vehicles and people, analyze possible crowds, manage overcrowding in public transport, etc.
We can say that it will mainly improve the way of measuring situations. Know when something needs improvements, changes or determine how to organize the movement of people.
IoT on the devices themselves
This change refers to the fact that today many IoT devices need the cloud or a server to manage data. They collect information and transfer it to those computers. It is there where it is stored and from where they can also receive orders. However, this requires a bandwidth that can be limited.
With IoT on the devices themselves, that changes and everything is managed from the team itself . A way also to reduce costs.
In short, these are some changes or trends that will come with the Internet of Things for the next few months.
