Top 10 Application Industries of IoT

Release date:2022-6-17 4:50:59

Due to political, social and other influences, the global economic growth has been sluggish in recent years, and the economies of all countries in the world are facing severe challenges. Under such circumstances, the Internet of Things has emerged as the times require and has become a new driving force for economic development. Based on this, according to the actual situation, we have sorted out the development of the Internet of Things industry, and summed up ten application areas, namely logistics, transportation, security, energy, medical care, construction, manufacturing, home furnishing, retail and agriculture. The following describes how IoT technology is applied to these ten fields:


1. Smart Logistics

Smart logistics refers to the realization of functions such as system perception, comprehensive analysis and processing in all aspects of logistics such as transportation, warehousing, transportation, and distribution, supported by information technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data, and artificial intelligence. At present, the application of the Internet of Things is mainly reflected in three aspects, warehousing, transportation monitoring and express terminals, etc. Through the Internet of Things technology, the monitoring of goods and the monitoring of transportation vehicles, including the location and status of the goods and vehicles, as well as the temperature and humidity of the goods, and fuel consumption are realized. The use of IoT technology can improve transportation efficiency and improve the intelligence level of the entire logistics industry.

2. Intelligent Transportation

Intelligent transportation is an important manifestation of the Internet of Things. It uses information technology to closely combine people, vehicles and roads to improve the transportation environment, ensure traffic safety and improve resource utilization. The specific application fields of IoT technology include smart buses, shared bicycles, Internet of Vehicles, charging pile monitoring, smart traffic lights, and smart parking. Among them, the Internet of Vehicles is a field that major manufacturers and Internet companies have rushed to enter in recent years.


3. Intelligent security

Security is a major application market for the Internet of Things, because security is always a basic need of people. Traditional security relies heavily on personnel and is very labor-intensive, while intelligent security can realize intelligent judgment through equipment. At present, the core part of intelligent security lies in the intelligent security system, which transmits and stores the captured images, and analyzes and processes them. A complete intelligent security system mainly includes three parts, access control, alarm and monitoring. The industry is mainly based on video monitoring.


4. Smart energy and environmental protection

Smart energy and environmental protection is a part of smart cities, and its IoT applications are mainly concentrated in water energy, electricity, gas, street lamps and other energy sources, as well as environmental protection devices such as well covers and trash cans. For example, the smart manhole cover monitors the water level and its status, the smart water and electricity meter realizes remote meter reading, and the smart trash can automatically sense. The Internet of Things technology is applied to the traditional water, electricity, and light energy equipment for networking, and through monitoring, the utilization efficiency is improved and the energy loss is reduced.


5. Smart Medical

In the field of intelligent medical care, the application of new technologies must be human-centered. The Internet of Things technology is the main way of data acquisition, which can effectively help hospitals realize the intelligent management of people and the intelligent management of things. The intelligent management of people refers to the monitoring of people's physiological states (such as heart rate, physical exertion, blood pressure, etc.) through sensors, mainly refers to medical wearable devices, and records the acquired data in electronic health files, for the convenience of individuals or doctors. In addition, Bluetooth technology can also monitor and manage medical equipment and items, and realize the visualization of medical equipment and supplies, mainly as a digital hospital.

6. Smart buildings 

Architecture is the cornerstone of a city. The advancement of technology has promoted the intelligent development of buildings. Smart buildings based on new technologies such as the Internet of Things have attracted more and more attention. The current smart buildings are mainly embodied in energy saving. By sensing, transmitting and realizing remote monitoring of equipment, it can not only save energy but also reduce the operation and maintenance of building personnel. According to the survey, Yiou think tank has learned that the current smart buildings are mainly reflected in electric lighting, fire monitoring, smart elevators, building monitoring and termite monitoring used in the field of ancient buildings.


7. Intelligent Manufacturing

The smart manufacturing subdivision concept has a wide range and involves many industries. The manufacturing field has a huge market volume and is an important application field of the Internet of Things. It is mainly reflected in the transformation of digital and intelligent factories, including the monitoring of factory machinery and equipment and the environmental monitoring of factories. By adding corresponding sensors to the equipment, equipment manufacturers can monitor, upgrade and maintain the equipment remotely and anytime, so as to better understand the use status of the product, complete the information collection of the whole product life cycle, and guide the product design and development. After-sales service; and the environment of the factory is mainly to collect information such as temperature and humidity, smoke and so on.


8. Smart Home

Smart home refers to the use of different methods and devices to enhance people's ability to live and make the home more comfortable, safe and efficient. The application of the Internet of Things in the field of smart homes can monitor the position, status and changes of household products, analyze their changing characteristics, and provide feedback to a certain extent according to people's needs. The development of the smart home industry is mainly divided into three stages, single product connection, object-object linkage and platform integration. The direction of its development is to connect smart home items first, then move to the linkage between different items, and finally develop to the smart home system platform. At present, various smart home enterprises are in the transition stage from single product to object linkage.


9. Smart Retail

In the industry, retail is divided into three different forms according to distance: far-field retail, mid-field retail, and near-field retail. The three are represented by e-commerce, shopping malls/supermarkets, and convenience stores/vending machines. IoT technology can be used for near-field and mid-field retail, and is mainly used in near-field retail, namely unmanned convenience stores and automated (unmanned) vending machines. Smart retail creates an unmanned retail model by digitally upgrading and transforming traditional vending machines and convenience stores. Through data analysis, and making full use of the customer flow and activities in the store, it provides better services for users and higher operating efficiency for merchants.


10. Smart Agriculture

Smart agriculture refers to the deep integration of modern information technologies such as the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and big data with agriculture to realize information perception, precise management and intelligent control of the entire agricultural production process. Visual diagnosis, remote control and disaster warning and other functions. The application of the Internet of Things in agriculture is mainly reflected in two aspects: agricultural planting and animal husbandry.


Agricultural planting collects data through sensors, cameras and satellites to realize the development of crop digitization and mechanical equipment digitization (mainly referring to the Internet of Agricultural Machinery and Vehicles). Animal husbandry refers to the use of traditional ear tags, wearable devices and cameras to collect data on livestock and poultry products, and by analyzing the collected data, using algorithms to determine the health status, feeding situation, location information and estrus of livestock and poultry products. Forecasts, etc., and accurately manage them.
