Re-Imagining Future with Cloud and IoT

A couple of latest and widely used terminologies in IT media are the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud Computing. Though, the English-speaking nations are often found using the word cloud computing and not the Internet of Things.

"Owing to the integration of various technologies, real-time data analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors and integrated systems, the term IoT has evolved a long way. The Internet of Things integrates multiple technologies like embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, control systems, automation, and others."

In the consumer industry, IoT technology most synonymously refers to products relating to 'smart home', 'smart cities', 'smart cities'. Also, it involves devices and appliances that support one or more common ecosystems and can be regulated by devices associated with this ecosystem, such as smartphones and thermostats.

Businesses can use the concept of IoT in the following areas;

  • Agriculture
  • Animal tracking
  • Precision farming
  • Soil moisture sensor
  • Weather station
  • Facility Management
  • Environmental sensor
  • Room/desk occupancy
  • Door/window sensor
  • Smart plug
  • Pest control
  • Smart City
  • Parking
  • Weather station
  • Smart lighting
  • Smart bin
  • People counter
  • Sound measurement
  • Air Quality
  • Waste management
  • Flood control
  • Industrial
  • Temperature
  • ModBus
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Conditional monitoring
  • Fuel tank monitoring
  • Connected factories
  • Logistics
  • Cold Chain
  • Asset Tracking
  • Movement
  • Utilities
  • Water meter
  • Gas meter
  • Electrical current

There is a whole chain of action that goes from Device to Device, Device to Gateway, Gateway to Network Server, Network Server to Cloud and Data Analytics to Dashboard Display. All these are simplified thanks to ready to use protocols, mechanisms, and Cloud infrastructure provided by key providers like AWS IoT, Network of Things, Google IoT Core, etc.

The Internet of Things ( IoT) in the Cloud is a comprehensive managed infrastructure that makes linking, managing and integrating data from millions of devices globally that are distributed securely. This data typically is high in volume and needs to be stored and analysed with the aid of various resources offered by Cloud providers. Cloud computing is an enabling technology of the IoT.

From lifts to cellular phones to city buses, all will be subject to wired control systems shortly or use networks to communicate vital details. The amount of knowledge that flows across networks is mushrooming. This will result in prohibitively costly hardware specifications in a dedicated or collocated hardware environment. Thus, the cloud is the only viable choice for linking, monitoring and handling the modern Internet of Things affordably.
