Internet of Things data and market share
IoT, short for Internet Of Things, revolves around the idea that a network doesn’t only connect people but everything around them. These means that all devices are able to connect and exchange data with one another through the Internet. Appliances, vehicles and any other type of device will be able to connect and exchange information with other devices. In order to do that, these devices need to be controlled by a software, an app that will process the data to be exchanged in a useful way.
The concept of IoT has been around for decades with a Coke machine at Carnegie Mellon University becoming the first ever device connected to the Internet back in 1982. The IoT potential has increased thanks to the availability of faster Internet services, new sensors, and technologies. A multitude of platforms for IoT development have appeared over the last few years, attracting major players. It is an exciting new trend that will surely become an important part of our lives in the next few years.Why you should develop an Internet of Things app
Internet of Things is a relevant future trend in mobile, as expressed in the IoT resources blog category by our app developers. By 2020, the base of Internet of Things connected devices is set to reach a number between 6 and 30 billion, with a clear focus on consumer-oriented devices, especially smart homes and wearables.
We are headed to a world where connected electronic devices are real, and new possibilities appear every day. From BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) connected devices, home appliances, and cars, to home automation, any object that can connect via the Internet, and receive and send information to a control center can be part of the Internet of Things.
Within the home automation sector we already have Alexa and Amazon Echo, and Google Home is slowly conquering everything, with its speakers outselling Echo during 2018’s first quarter. Virtual or voice assistants are also a helpful tool for the expansion of IoT. The improvements that voice assistants have experienced thanks to Machine Learning make the future of IoT very promising. Only time will tell if security issues (personal data storage, device hacking) will become a major threat or not.What app project owners can find on the AppFutura Internet of Things directory
