The Evolvement Of IoT Industry

Riya SethiThe Internet became a boon after it was invented in the year 1990 by Tim Berners-Lee. After 29 years, the internet has evolved and grown into every small piece of equipment possibly available. From watches to vehicles, it has gained access to every little component in order to make it smarter. Every machine is now some way connected to the internet and is part of the Internet of Things (IoT).

IoT defines the connection of a machine or devices through a series of a network that is enabled to share and process data in order to complete a programmed task. In today's world, every industry is highly relying on IoT in order to operate smoothly. Not just run, but develop various new platforms to work more efficient.

A brief example of IoT being highly used by industry is that of the automobile industry. From the global positioning system (GPS) embedded in vehicles to self-driving cars, IoT has played a crucial role. IoT has now taken up the position to make transportation efficient and intelligent. Most of the manufacturers are looking forward to developing self-driving vehicles by the end of 2023.

These days, several smart applications are developed
to connect with a vehicle that provides numerous information such as GPS, real-time traffic tracking and entertainment on a single touch. It is also used to take several safety measures in vehicles such as monitoring various components of the vehicle, engine status, and maintenance alert in order to keep the vehicle healthy.

IoT has also taken up the role of security as a number of sensors and cameras are being connected which reads collects data of the surrounding driving environment. It collects data of blind spot, rear view, narrow parking, and traffic pattern to ensure a safe and secure driving experience.

IoT is not just limited to four-wheelers. The motorcycle industry is heavily investing in order to make the upcoming motorcycles smart and intelligent. Smart helmets are among the trending gadgets that are making news these days. A helmet that reads the distance of vehicles in the front and rear, covers blind spot areas, allows the rider to look a map without looking down are some of the features which are being developed because of IoT. And, all of that smartly integrated into a transparent heads up display (HUD) without interfering with the rider's view.

Motorcycles are being developed with various riding modes such as city, highway or county where the engine changes the delivery of power and torque in accordance with the mode chosen. The introduction of the anti-locking braking system (ABS), cornering ABS and launch control in motorcycles are some of the revolutionary technology that has made riding safely even if someone decides to up the throttle.

Talking about IoT and the automobile industry, the new Lamborghini Huracan Evo cannot be kept away as the manufacturer has introduced an all-new system to make the ride an aggressive but safer one. The manufacturer has developed the new Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) which anticipates the movement of the driver and makes an adjustment to the traction control by coordinating all the four wheels. The result is making out of corners really fast without drifting or losing any traction.
IoT has seeped into every little device in order to process work fast and efficiently. It can aptly be said that the IoT is the future and the future is automatic.
