The Internet of Things in healthcare is continuously growing. According to an Aruba Networks report, 87 percent of healthcare organizations will be using IoT devices by this year.A separate report from Accenture found that today’s healthcare organizations dedicate an average of 10 percent of their overall IT budget to IoT solutions, with their investments rising incrementally as a hospital’s budget grows.
These interconnected tools help hospitals automate time-consuming administrative tasks, track medication inventory and enhance building security, among other critical functions. Even better, they enhance high-quality care that can help prevent costly readmissions. The 2017 Accenture report states 73 percent of healthcare professionals reported cost savings since adopting IoT devices. The report also notes remote patient monitoring, wellness programs and data analysis that can prompt more intuitive decision-making are key IoT benefits.

Future ‘smart walls’ key to IoT

Article | February 10, 2020

IoT equipment designers shooting for efficiency should explore the potential for using buildings as antennas, researchers say. Environmental surfaces such as walls can be used to intercept and beam signals, which can increase reliability and data throughput for devices, according to MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).Researchers at CSAIL have been working on a smart-surface repeating antenna array called RFocus. The antennas, which could be applied in sheets like wallpaper, are designed to be incorporated into office spaces and factories. Radios that broadcast signals could then become smaller and less power intensive.

Role of IoT in HVAC

Article | February 10, 2020

Implementation of the “Internet of Things” in the modern world is gaining pace at breakneck speed. Society is moving away from standalone devices and entering the realm of inter-connectivity. With uses in different facets of life, such as personal gadgets, retail, electricity distribution and financial services, IoT is making its mark. One such application field of IoT is in Smart Homes, or more specifically in the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning industry (HVAC). According to a report by Zion Market Research, the global smart HVAC control market is expected to reach almost USD 28.3 billion by 2025 as compared to USD 8.3 billion in 2018. Amalgamation of the HVAC industry and IoT provides for vastly superior customer-centric services, enabling remote appliance control as a first step.

DEPLOYING MACHINE LEARNING TO HANDLE INFLUX OF IOT DATA

Article | February 10, 2020

The Internet of Things is gradually penetrating every aspect of our lives. With the growth in numbers of internet-connected sensors built into cars, planes, trains, and buildings, we can say it is everywhere. Be it smart thermostats or smart coffee makers, IoT devices are marching ahead into mainstream adoption. But, these devices are far from perfect. Currently, there is a lot of manual input required to achieve optimal functionality — there is not a lot of intelligence built-in. You must set your alarm, tell your coffee maker when to start brewing, and manually set schedules for your thermostat, all independently and precisely.
