A wide network created from the connection objects that contain embedded that make them able to communicate and interact with each other without human interference technologies - - can be applied to various industries Internet of Things concept . Vary , however , the goal of each and pace of adoption.
Elia San Miguel , principal research analyst at Gartner , there are
areas where it is easier to drive the growth of the Internet of Things ,
such as m -health , storage ( warehouse ) , logistics and
transportation , primarily in the communications vehicle to vehicle. " These are areas that are more mature and that , within our circle
hype , are more advanced ," he said in an interview with Digital
Rhode , director of innovation at Ericsson, ranks among the areas that
are flagships for the Internet of Things boost the energy sector , the
financial system , automating supermarket ( self-service , where goods
and people register online payment) traffic management and the health sector , which has devoted considerable investments to this.
cites applications ranging from flags wave ( that green or red signal )
communicating with the GPS to direct where the car is parked in a mall
to fleet control and warehouse management .
"We think there will be plenty on the Internet of Things in less than two years, except in the health sector. Within two to five years, we will start seeing more of the conditions of adoption and implementation, "said Elia. Health, with an aging population, it makes more sense for the government coffers monitor the patient for a preventive treatment to afford higher costs later.
For the next five years, the analyst expects greater adoption by the energy companies, deploying smart grid solutions. At present, the bottleneck is in discussions on the regulatory framework, business model and ecosystem. "The timing depends on the whole system, who will pay, how will work box. These are issues that still need to be defined, "says Elia.
Rhode believes the business model in the area of utilities is already beginning to materialize. "There were doubts about who would fund it. What is happening is that energy companies are offering cheaper rates depending on the time, but the consumer has to buy the device that makes this measurement. It is an investment that pays for itself with the economy, "he says.
Besides these, there are great expectations for the segment of housing within the concept of smart homes, with widespread adoption of automation solutions for homes and so-called smart cities.
"We deal as a management platform chips, but our strategy goes beyond. We have a pilot fleet management and a platform for utilities, "said Eduardo Tadeu Takeshi Ohmachi, Telefonica Vivo in the last FUTURECOM panel.
"The areas that will further advance this time are those with the greatest financial return to connect the devices," ponders Rhode. Some examples he mentions the monitoring and control of energy with smart grid and consumption points controlled by the internet.
