IoT (Internet of Things) has already made a huge impact on consumers. “Smart” devices have already replaced the conventional ones. From smart phones to smart Television sets, from refrigerators to smart cars, everything is evolving thanks to the new breakthrough in technology which is commonly known as IoT. IoT has helped in solving many real time challenges or has improved the overall usability of devices. It has indeed enhanced the convenience level of consumers.
Just like IoT has helped in solving many real time challenges in normal day to day life, IoT experts are now looking for the solutions of the problems at a workplace. The biggest problem corporate world is facing these days is power efficiency. With the help of “smart lights” IoT experts are trying to tackle this problem. Smart lights are the conventional lights embedded with motion sensors and it tracks the movement of workers and based on this data the lights learn to control itself. This new technology can save a lot of money and it will also prove beneficial to the environment. Another common workplace problem is parking space. On an average, it takes about 10-15 minutes for an employee to find the parking space. With the help of the network of sensors fitted in the parking lot, this challenge could easily be tackled.
IoT is proving to be a god-sent gift for manufacturing industry. Logistics management has become much efficient with the help of IoT. The sensors in the warehouse are capable of not only tracking but analyzing the tracked data and provide the real time insights to the supervisor. This insight could be used for better efficiency.
In such a short span of time, what we are able to achieve because of IoT is really commendable, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are exciting times ahead. IoT will continue to grow at a pace it has grown so far, or may be faster. But the important question is, is the corporate world ready to handle the change of this magnitude? Do they have enough trained resources to be able to contribute to the new merging workplace? One thing is for sure that every company needs IoT resources because IoT is going to be the future!
