Advancements In IoT Technology Paves The Way To Complete Autonomy

The future of the Internet of Things (IoT) is limitless. It is no longer limited to computers, tablets, and smartphones; now a multitude of devices are connected to the internet. Researchers have transferred almost every analog device into a digital one. However, today almost every digital device is on its way to being a “smart” device. Apart from computers and watches, today washing machines, door locks, toasters, and vacuum cleaners come under the umbrella of the Internet of Things.

As per research, around 51% of the population lives in metro cities, creating lucrative opportunities for the global Internet of Things market. The potential and range of existing IoT devices are limitless. Consumers are now used to the convenience offered by their smartphones that can communicate with IoT devices. Be it to make a grocery or shopping list or turning down the heat at home while you are still in the office. IoT devices have redefined convenience as we know it.

It is projected that by 2025, there will be more than 21 billion IoT devices operating across the world. This gives the idea about the future of inter-connectivity. Not only consumers but major companies, and metro cities will also adopt smart technologies to save a few bucks and time. Thus, it is safe to say that the IoT industry is on its way to making cities remotely manageable and automatic. Smart cities will collect data through IoT devices such as visitor kiosks, traffic surveillance cameras, and bike rental stations to create complete autonomy.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that artificial intelligence (AI) will be a dominating force in the future. Every time you use an IoT device, your data is collected to facilitate machine learning. The increased use of IoT devices means an increased amount of data would help computers “learn” about you and your behavior patterns. For instance, when a website recommends a movie that you might like, it is expected to be based on your previous choices.

However, seamless communication with IoT devices demands a 5G connection and secure router. Currently, several major corporations are rolling out 5G networks and smartphones that support 5G infrastructure, promising unprecedented speed and the ability to connect multiple devices simultaneously. Along with this, 5G infrastructure promises a faster analysis of the gathered data, which will future drive the IoT industry.

The biggest threat to IoT devices is cyber-criminals. Since the introduction of the concept of IoT, there is a significant spike in IoT malware, malicious software that targets IoT devices. The threat of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is real and it would aim to bring out or a corrupt majority of IoT devices. There have been several DDoS attacks till now and their frequency is likely to increase. Thus, market players would invest more and more to secure IoT devices and protect them from such malicious cyber attacks.

We are moving toward complete autonomy. With the increased popularity of driverless cars and artificial intelligence, people’s daily needs going to depend on IoT devices. It is just a matter of time till we live in the world that we watch the movies.
