Internet of Things has wider applications in terms of Industrial Automation, Smart Cities and  Data Analytics, here we are going to see few of the applications.


Sensor technology is constantly improving, which will allow more devices and machines to proactively monitor their environments and deliver a live view of the world around us at a much higher resolution. Companies will be able to use sensors to scan the environment to improve navigation, logistics, city planning, weather prediction, agricultural planning, and pollution management, for example. By combining real-time IoT information with existing data, organizations can react faster to change, create new insights, and develop new products and services.

There are lot of sensors like Temperature,Humidity,Accelerometer

Accelerometer,Motion(PIR),Sound,Light(LDR),Gas ,Vibration

Gas ,Vibration,Bio..etc Plays important role In Monitoring in IoT Applications.

By Using IoT we can monitor the machine temperature,Lubrication data and also we can remotely control a machine. With one intelligent network infrastructure, you can improve operations. Increase safety and security. And gain valuable data insight to streamline automation.

2.Smarter Urban Management

Cities are automating traffic management that effectively notices and governs the flow of traffic based on ever-changing conditions; parking applications that intelligently guide cars to open spots, eliminating wasted time and energy and dramatically cutting back on emissions; automating utility consumption, generation and distribution on a grand scale, all with an eye to the mitigation of waste that far exceeds the capabilities of existing systems.

3.Enable Operability and Openness

The IoT’s potential can only be fully realized, though, when things, devices, and machines are technically able to interact with each other not just within the boundaries of the company but within a larger business ecosystem. All digitized assets will need a high level of interoperability so they can communicate through modern IoT standards and connect to a company’s business systems.

4.Reimagine Work

By creating networks of machines and devices in our physical and virtual workplaces, the IoT will increase productivity. Employees can react in real time to demands, changes, and opportunities. Things and machines will have increased utilization and longevity. And physically stressful or dangerous work can be handed over to machines, freeing up human workers’ time and energy to focus on quality and creativity.

5.Advanced Connectivity

Many devices and daily things around us will be enabled to interact with humans and with each other, creating a totally new experience in the physical world. We are already exploring connected and interactive cars and various forms of wearables.
