The prophecy has certainly proved to be correct, and Develco has actively contributed to the development. Forecasters are divided on the pace of this development, and the estimates about the number of things on the Web vary from about 20 billion to 50 billion in 2020. Let’s just be content to conclude that both numbers are large. The driving forces behind are the technological development and useful effect of IoT solutions.
Among Develco’s contributions could be mentioned: Nabby – intelligent baby monitor, Grundfos Alpha Reader – intelligent installation of pumps, Aduro – intelligent stove, Grundfos G501 – intelligent monitoring of pump systems etc.
Note the word “intelligent”. The things, with which we surround ourselves, will increasingly benefit from the setting of intelligent or “smart” if we want to use the English word in the field. Intelligent IT solutions are gaining ground, because they can pick up and handle huge amounts of data and are not – unlike human beings – inclined to overlook, forget, misinterpret, make miscalculations or take a practice day. Communication via the Internet will abolish the challenge of geographical distance and enable Big Data.
Develco Is a Qualified Partner – Both to Hatch the Good Idea and Have It Really Made
We have got and will get more smart devises and systems such as smart glasses, smart cars, smart homes, smart cities, etc. The overall perspective is a world where more and more intelligent physical devices will communicate with each other or with people, and monitor and control processes, wherever they may take place geographically.
Even without major technological insight, one may conclude that IoT requires technologies that are able to collect data, forward and convert these data into information. A technological step further reveals that the IoT requires sensors to capture data about speed, volume, temperature, pressure, radiation, etc. The physical things must be equipped with embedded software that can transform data into information. Communication must be ensured by the data transmission network based on wireless or wired solutions. Another step deeper uncovers myriads of microprocessors, programming and transmission technologies.
Overall conclusion, the IoT is a complex business – both in terms of identifying appropriate options and of developing the optimal technological solution. But do not despair. Develco will help with both challenges and hesitation can be fatal. In many areas, it is essential to jump on the digital train to maintain competitiveness as well as a high and effective level of service.
