Internet Of Things : What Makes The Weirdest Of Thoughts Turn Into Reality !


Dear Readers,

We were not around to witness the great “Renaissance” that brought about a cultural upheaval across the globe, spanning over 14th to 17th century, but for millennials like us, the gradual and brainstorming foray of IoT into every aspect of our lives is going to be bigger and better for sure.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to connect about 50 billion smart objects to the network by the year 2020. Applications and their enablement plays a critical role in harnessing this connectivity, growth and the data generated from these objects. Through these applications, data collected can trigger breakthroughs in decision making, operational efficiencies, safety and security and affect nearly every aspect of the customer experience. The Internet of Things is opening up a parallel world of ‘thinglings’ (like the sound of this word, don’t you? As siblings are related by a lineage of blood, thinglings can be all those things connected through internet. Voila! ) that is going to bring about a tremendous transformation into our societies, our workplaces, our cities and our complete lives.

Remember that blockbuster animated movie ‘Cars’ which depicted a car as a humanized version of itself that can ‘talk’ to other cars, think on its own and even take decisions. This sci-fi situation might soon become a reality and believe me this would lead you to sigh in relief, considering the fact that humans lose more lives to road mishaps than to deadly cancers or AIDS. Things are changing at a cosmic pace and for good, hopefully.


Consider this situation: You’ve had a hard day at office and feel drained of all energy. You reach home and take a de-stressing shower. While bathing your thoughts drift to the idea of having big scoops of butterscotch ice-cream kept in your home refrigerator to cool-off your head. So right after you get dressed, you reach out for your freezer and pull out the ice cream bucket. As soon as you close the refrigerator door, a connected wireless speaker urges, loudly, “ Your most recent BMI / weight / height are…You may like to reconsider your selection”. The wireless speaker is programmed to report data collected from the bio-montoring sensor fitted in your bathroom, clubbing it with the nutritional value of groceries present in your fridge as collected from RFID tags around them and then reporting it to you.

Now imagine this : You woke up late and need to rush to be in time to pick up a friend from the airport. You find your wallet and jacket and step out without your car keys in your pocket. Perfect way to waste at least half-an hour first searching for keys and then locking the front door! *Beep Beep Beep*. Your ‘smart-door’ delays automatic locking of front door for an extra 90 seconds, as you just left without your keys, which is sensed by the RF sensor fixed at the doorway, giving you the chance to duck back inside to get keys if urgent and save those precious seconds .

Amazing, isn’t it? And this is not just any far-fetched silly dream, for the simple fact that the concept of IoT provides application writers (or App writers) with the power to connect objects not even vaguely related otherwise and start an entire new sort of functionality altogether. It’s almost like providing a carte blanche to the IOT application writers.



Cut to next scenario: It’s a happy weekend and you slept for eight hours, straight. You wake up rejuvenated and feel like going for a morning walk. But since you’re not some habitual morning-walker, you’re unaware of the parks and paths that would be best for you. But you need not worry as this particular mobile app has plenty of information about nearby parks and traffic-free roads that you may like to take. Additionally it gives you a track of all those registered with the app and taking a morning walk already, with updates about whatever paths they’re on. Who knows, you may end up finding someone to keep you company while taking the walk (tongue-in-cheek!).

The most evident alterations as a result of IoT-driven advancements are going to show-up in the ways we communicate and control things, resulting in subsequent cost-cuttings. Basically this would open up vast avenues for research and development unleashing innumerable inventions, acting as if it’s sort of some Getafix’s magic potion. However, we have to make sure this change is going to be a positive development and we are adequately equipped for the security and reliability issues, considering the vast amount of data that would be accessed for such an IoT-driven world. Optimistically, this won’t lead to opening up of a doomed Pandora’s Box.

Keep tuned to this space for more ! We appreciate your feedback.
