How the Industrial Internet of Things is set to change the world
We're all aware of the Internet of Things and its likely effect on our homes, but there's another side to it which is its impact on industry.
Electronics supplier RS Components has put together an interactive graphic looking at how the Industrial IoT is going to change everyday functions from streetlighting to agriculture.
Smart street lighting for example could cut energy costs by around 35 percent by automatically dimming when no activity is detected. Smart logistics could ensure that perishable items and medicines are delivered in peak condition. It's estimated that this could save European businesses up to 300 billion euros a year in wasted products. In agriculture too, probes measuring temperature and moisture will enable farmers to produce higher yields with less wastage.
