Internet of Things - Thematic Research

The second economy of intelligent industrial machines running their own logic and communicating with each other.

The Internet of Things, or IoT, describes the use of connected sensors and actuators to control and monitor the environment, the things that move within it, and the people that act within it. he Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a world where aircraft engines, fridges, thermostats and medical devices are connected to the internet with a view to automating more of our lives, saving energy or making industrial processes run more efficiently.

  • Examples of connected devices:
  • Nest thermostat – which syncs your home heating system timings with your schedule to increase energy efficiency
  • SmartBelly trash can – which can alert trash collectors when it needs to be emptied
  • Proteus digital heart sensor – an ingestible sensor which monitors a heart patient’s medical condition

And it doesn’t stop there. Imagine programmable factories, oil fields, offices, warehouses, mines and supply chains which are all undergirded by ‘Social Networks of Big Iron’, jet engines, wind turbines, locomotives, tractors, drills and milling machines.

GlobalData’s Internet of Things – Thematic Research explains the technology and explores the possibilities it holds for businesses.
