Internet of Things ahead of the pack for a new global future.
The Internet of Things (IoT) concept is basically connecting any device with any other device on the internet. Or put formally “the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data.” This includes everything from cellphones, coffee makers, and almost anything else you can think of. This also applies to components of machines – For example, a jet engine of an airplane or the drill of an oil rig. If it has an on and off switch then chances are it can be a part of the IoT and can be operated from anywhere with the help of internet. In the very near future this will create opportunities for the direct integration of the physical world and the computer based world. The result will be improved efficiency, accuracy, and economic benefits.
IHS forecasts that the IoT market will grow from an installed base of 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 30.7 billion devices in 2020 and 75.4 billion in 2025 – That’s a massive 5 fold increase in a decade.
An even bigger forecast – “SoftBank believes 1 trillion connected devices will create $11 trillion in value by 2025.”
The Internet of Things is about to explode with so many opportunities available and many we just haven’t thought of yet. By way of an example, by 2020 you will be able to get the latest weather report from Weather Telematics Inc. as you travel home in your autonomous vehicle (AV), while checking if you have turned on the air-conditioner and washing machine using an app on your 5G enabled mobile device.
Internet of Things Inc. (TSXV: ITT) operates as an Internet of Things technology accelerator and industry acquisition company, with an objective to generate positive cash flow through a portfolio of innovative technology growth ready assets.
