The Internet of Things is a very attractive technology for both companies and consumers. The idea of the IoT is that the devices we use every day in business and our private lives can collect, process and share data through a certain network (for example, the Internet). What is the advantage of IoT devices over traditional equipment? They can – in a way – scan the environment and assess the conditions they are operating in. Sensors in IoT devices collect information and send it to special, advanced software. Thanks to analyzing data in real time, IoT systems can optimize machine workflow and resource usage, but can also monitor a certain device and inform the user when some error occurs. There are multiple IoT applications that you may find useful. This technology can be applied in manufacturing, not only for process optimization, but also for improving employees’ safety.
