The Internet of Things based on embedded technology is transforming the way we work, play and live and its high impact in the future will blur the lines between humans and machines. IoT is making great impacts on the way we interact with the things around us and has paved the way for a more sustainable work environment. Experts say that in a few years down the line, there will be 100 billion physical things connected to the web. Intelligent devices embedded with sensors, hardware and software will be connected through the internet, where these will communicate with each other or in other words communication between machines will occur.

Intelligent devices are greatly affecting our everyday life, as right from the way we communicate to way we drive to the way we receive medical care, light our cities and consume energy, everything has been transformed due to these devices. Sensors embedded in roads control flow of traffic, vending machines sends alert when they need to be refilled, pacemaker installed in the patient’s heart inform cardiologist about a problem before it turns fatal and with sensors in the soil, fields know when they need to be fertilized and irrigated. Thus, we can say that human interventions have been greatly reduced from many regular tasks due to the popularity of intelligent devices that work on embedded technology.

Internet of Things is developing rapidly and the technology is offering several opportunities and services across diverse industries like manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, agriculture, public safety, insurance and smart cities. It is the future of the technology that will make our lives much more efficient and comfortable by significantly reducing the human intervention in work, which today is impossible to execute without the human support. The Internet of Things will give rise to network of devices, objects, systems and data, where all will be working together in sync to execute a specific task.

The major transformations across different sectors are expected to occur due to the Internet of Things, as right from infrastructure sector to healthcare and from manufacturing to automotive and transportation, every sector is going to reap the myriad benefits of this technology. In infrastructure sector IoT will lead to environmental benefits and will lead to significant cost saving with better resource utilization and proper maintenance of critical systems. In healthcare sector it will aid in improved employee productivity and resource usage that will further results in cost saving and efficiency gains. In manufacturing sector IoT will lead to flexibility and enhanced agility and will reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint. In automotive and transportation sector, it will improve customer experience, reduce pollution and increase safety.
