The Internet of Things (IOT) promises to connect a range of physical objects and devices to the internet. Doing this will provide massive amounts of data that can be used to monitor and manage events that occur and our responses to them.
IOT technology promises applications such as the following:
• More efficient manufacturing processes by monitoring machines as they produce products and assessing the quality of those products. Defects can be identified in real time and processes adjusted automatically to avoid a recurrence.
• The use of wearable technology to monitor our health and the effects of environmental conditions on our bodies. This will enable, for example, doctors to remotely monitor a patient’s health.
• Help improve efficiency by being able to analyze large amounts of data for almost any activity that is performed using IOT devices to make them better.
