Internet of Things (IoT)
What is the Internet of Things?
The Internet of Things is like a catch-all term for the evolution of wireless technology solutions that create a kind of inter-connected, smart system that can function with or without human input.
At the heart of any IoT interaction you’ll find sensors and monitors. IoT devices can be used for a range of needs, from monitoring leaks in a facility to integrating with an app that shares information with a doctor.
Examples of IoT solutions we’ve created:
Field data collection
Patient data collection
Integrating satellite images into route planning
Field sensor monitoring
Remote smart-home applications
IoT and Big Data
Have you ever used a mobile app to order food, adjust a thermostat, or turn on your alarm system? If so, you’ve interacted with the Internet of Things. You’ll find IoT solutions being used in general, cross-industry devices as well as vertical, industry specific technology. Whatever the need, it’s essential that sensors and monitors communicate effectively with one another and that the data and information collected is easy to use and understand.
Data is like the fuel of IoT. As with fuel, data must be collected and used properly in order to be effective. Making big data more accessible across multiple platforms not only gives end-users control, it also gives them manageable access to the information they need. Big-data management has tremendous implications for healthcare applications, the automotive industry, smart-home technology, smart watches, machines, and much, much more.
The Future of IoT Development
IoT is now an integral part of our lives, work, and everyday experiences, but there’s still a lot of work to do and lots of opportunities for growth. We continue to see new IoT ideas in the enterprise sector and are here to help create custom solutions for manufacturers, institutions, healthcare partners, educators, and more. If you’re curious about how to grow your business by integrating IoT into your infrastructure, schedule a consultation with us to discuss your project.
Do you have hardware
but still need the software?
Perhaps you have already sourced the hardware you will need to optimize the efficiency of your business. You know where you will get your sensors and receivers, but you still have not decided on the best way to develop the software you need. That’s where Art+Logic can help you determine the best ways to make the most efficient use of your hardware.
We have helped clients save on costs merely by cutting down on the time it takes for data to travel from a sensor to a receiver. By making that process more efficient, we helped extend the battery life of the remote sensors, saving our clients money on the costs of sending out a team to replace the sensors when the batteries run down. We expect more businesses to take advantage of the benefits of IoT by installing remote sensors that gather the types of data that can help them make more informed, precise decisions. The key, though, is to make sure that the software you have developed does not just gather data, but also presents it in a useful, logical, and elegant format that is clear and intuitive.
The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to drive change and innovation across many industries. In the world of IoT, devices collect and exchange data with each other, making it easier to analyze massive amounts of information accurately and more efficiently.
