The Internet of Things - IoT
The boundaries of interaction between the digital and the physical world will disappear.
Advantages of IoT
❯ New business models
❯ Data intelligence
❯ Efficient systems and processes
Technology has brought the limits of interaction between the physical and digital world so close that it is almost impossible to distinguish where one stops and the other begins. Nothing will ever be the same again The concept of the Internet of Things plays a very important role in this scenario, and it will deeply impact the society and the economy, the way we do business, manage public infrastructure, and ultimately, live our lives. Things that before seemed to have come straight from the pages of a science fiction book have already become a reality. Today we are able to monitor and manage operations from hundreds of miles away, track goods anywhere in the world in real time, or even detect changes in the vitals of patients in critical conditions, amongst several other applications.
The Internet of Things boosts the economy with new business models that improve experiences and create new forms of customer relationships, bring new products and services, and innovate in the analysis and application of intelligence on exclusively collected data.
Just as strong as the new possible sources of income is the potential for earnings from increased operational efficiency and cost reduction. Sensors are already improving the performance of machines and equipment; products and services can evolve with decisions based on unified databases; wearable devices and portable monitors may reduce costs with the optimization of chronic disease treatment.
In a greater or lesser stage of maturity, we already have IoT applications in cars, and also in connected household appliances, smart power meters, electronic toll collection, remote monitoring and maintenance of industrial equipment, and traffic control. These applications will increasingly evolve, and new ones might appear. It is estimated that there are already more than 15 billion devices connected all over the word, and this number is expected to surpass the 35 billion mark by 2020.
CHALLENGES IN BRAZIL
For objects to cease being simply “things,” we need to build an ecosystem formed by applications, systems, communication networks, semiconductors and infrastructure. Only a great network connecting all smart objects will enable the monitoring and management of the most diverse devices by software, increasing the efficiency of systems and processes.
The Brazilian government plays a fundamental role in leading and building this ecosystem, by articulating public policies focused on innovation, the development of an enabling infrastructure and providing adequate regulatory control that seeks to meet the interests of all players.
