TOP 10 INTERNET of THINGS (IOT) TRENDS THAT WILL RULE 2020
INTERNET of THINGS (IoT) TRENDS
Let us first talk about what IoT technology means before looking at the coming trends. The full form of IoT is “Internet of Things”, which refers to a system where various digital machines are interrelated and data can be transferred amongst themselves. IoT does not require any human-to-computer or computer-to-human interaction.
So, now when you know about IoT, let us discuss the upcoming future trends which will change the world of technology:
MULTI-LINGUAL VOICE ASSISTANTS
India is a land of different cultures and each culture has its own language. In short, India is multi-lingual. But virtual assistants are not multi-lingual, they only execute a search in a single language.
Recently, Google Assistant has started the very first multi-lingual voice assistant. The fact might surprise you, but English is not the most spoken language in the world. So, adding a bi-lingual or multi-lingual feature to voice assistants is necessary to make the most out of it.
Having smart mirrors on the walls, this technique has gained the required boom recently. One can access weather updates, news, calendars, etc through the smart mirrors software and even perform more than just mentioned.
The best feature is that one can make the smart mirror smarter by using a few simple steps. If one is a tech-savvy, then he/she can add more features to the mirror. It is also cost-effective and a little bit of knowledge here and there can help you accomplish your job.
Partially automated cars can be seen on the roads now also. So, what we can expect next is self-driven cars or fully automatic or driverless cars in the future. Such driverless cars are still in the testing phase.
It might sound like a dream to you because we have not really seen it. We keep wondering whether it really exists or not? Well, flying cars have become the center of attraction for many now.
INCREASED IoT ADOPTION IN HEALTHCARE
One of the most important sectors of IoT applications in healthcare, so let us see how this sector integrates IoT with itself. Health devices like sensors, portable devices, medical equipment, etc have been configured to connect with IoT skills.
The smart wearable has transformed a lot recently. They have become smarter, lighter, sophisticated, smaller, attractive and more powerful with IoT.
A perfect balance has been maintained between everyday usable items and innovation in the fight to survive in this competitive market.
DATA PROCESSING AND EDGE COMPUTING
Edge computing is used to process the data which is produced by IoT devices which are placed closer to the location where it is created instead of transferring them through multiple routes to Cloud infrastructure or data centers. This process reduces the risk of data loss while maintaining integrity.
For many years, display just means flat pieces of plastic and glass. But now flexible display will take over, which will come with complete flexibility with improved image quality also. Producers are looking for a new and advanced arena where everything is fully automated.
The flexible display will be a great technical breakthrough that has the potential to change the way we use digital screens and smartphones.
Sensor innovation is making its way in all the different industries out there. Be it retail, medicine, health, wellness, food, automobile, etc. Sensors let us monitor the data and deliver detailed insights to information along with better processing in real-time with full security and accuracy.
The integration of IoT with the receptive cities will help us unlock sustainable development and reduce traffic congestion with improved security systems. Thus, soon we will have the opportunity to see the transformation of thought into the reality of smart cities.
These are just some of the trends which we can see in the near future or which will rule the IoT App Development ecosystem. Both the industries- service and product will see great advancements in their respective markets. Along with the coming trends, you should not forget about App Security, it is also an important factor to be considered.
