The Internet of Things (IoT) and Autonomous Power
The Internet of Things Global Standards Initiative definition: The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects, devices, vehicles, buildings and other items which are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data.
The Internet of Things allows objects to be remotely accessed across existing network infrastructure, to integrate the physical world and computer-based systems, toward the goal of improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. New advancements in the Internet of Things impact how we live but also how we work. As a leader in remote power technology, you will find SunWize Power and Battery help solve IoT power challenges and is a leading solar power provider to remote IoT devices that collect and transmit data via the Internet.
IoT Increasing at a Phenomenal Rate
Since 2008 there have been more objects connected to the Internet than people, and it is estimated that by 2020 over 250k vehicles will be connected to the Internet. Even today, Google’s self-driving cars drive over 10,000 autonomous miles per week – and this is estimated to increase at a phenomenal rate. With the IoT there are limitless opportunities for business and societies, and SunWize Power and Battery stands in the gap to supply off-grid power in the advancement of remote IoT technologies.
In 2015, we had $4.9 billion connected Things and growing. IoT can be applied to things like transportation networks, telecommunications, oil rigs, earthquake monitoring systems, and more. These can help us prepare for disasters, reduce waste, and improve efficiency for things such as traffic patterns and energy all toward the goal to understand and improve how we work and the world in which we live.
