In our cities
IoT imparts a new ‘intelligence’ – meaning ‘needs-determined’ – to the supply of such basic public goods as water and power in our cities. The result: a new and greater efficiency and ease of provision. Also profiting from this intelligence is illumination and traffic, whose inefficiencies are being reduced while in meantime our quality of life is being increased.
In our homes
IoT facilitates the optimization of energy consumption and home security. While doing so, it also reduces the amount of maintenance to be done, and, by properly controlling illumination and consumer electronics, augments our sense of being at home.
While on the road
IoT furthers the communication of vehicles on the road. This increases our security and speed of mobility, as do the selection of routes adapted to volumes of traffic, the real-time monitoring of vehicle conditions, and the rapid finding of charging stations for E-mobiles.
In health care
IoT gives physicians the capability to conduct the comprehensive and remote monitoring on a real-time basis of patients (“health apps”). IoT also ensures the patients’ adhering to the course of treatment and medications prescribed, and gives rise to new modes of diagnosis.
