Smarter Healthcare Using IoT Revolutionizing The Medical Industry

Internet of Things (IoT) and healthcare are revolutionizing the medical industry. Smart devices and wearables enable doctors to track their patients’ health through medical apps. Remote monitoring of vital health parameters can help doctors modify the treatment plan and can also save lives of patients by timely action on critical symptoms. Smart medical devices are also making lives easier for patients with chronic illnesses and disabilities. iHealth Smart tracks glucose levels of diabetics, Siren Smart Socks help prevent foot ulcers in diabetics and Widex COM-DEX is a smart hearing aid that can be controlled with an app.

The impact of connected devices on healthcare isn't one-sided — in fact, the healthcare industry is one of the major drivers of innovation and production in the smart device industry. This is especially prevalent when it comes to wearables.

IoT healthcare also enables collection of patient health data for early detection of diseases and preventive healthcare. Cyrcadia Health’s iTBra assists in early detection of breast cancer. Robotic healthcare assistants like Giraff provide visual feeds to bed-ridden patients and stream remote doctor consultations. However, there are inherent risks of data privacy and cyber security vulnerability which need to be addressed for scalability of IoT healthcare.

Convenience And Control Make Smart Home Automation Change Our Daily Lives

Smart home devices make our lives easier, more convenient and comfortable. Some of the conveniences offered by smart home devices are anytime anywhere remote access to home devices like air conditioner, lighting and cameras and voice enabled devices like speakers for playing music and news. As per BI Intelligence’s report, smart home devices shipped will increase from 83 million in 2015 to 193 million in 2020. This includes all smart appliances like thermostats, lighting, cameras, alarms, washers, refrigerators, etc.

The first and most obvious benefit to smart homes is convenience, as more connected devices can handle more operations (lighting, temperature, etc.) and frees up the resident to perform other tasks. But beyond this, smart home IoT devices can help reduce costs and conserve energy.

Amazon leads the home automation market with its central hub Echo, which is voice controlled by Alexa and interconnects all other smart home devices. Google’s Nest has created a self-learning thermostat that can automatically adjust temperature with far-field sensors. Other companies in the home automation market are Apple, August and Philips. With scalability, the prices of smart home devices will come down, leading to further growth in the home automation market.

Smart Home Tech And Green Energy Practices Help The Planet And Your Wallet

Following the United States’ controversial rejection of the Paris Climate Agreement, many citizens here and elsewhere may worry about the planet’s environmental future, or feel frustrated at their own inability to make a difference to combat climate change. Yet individuals can still have a significant, positive impact on the planet’s well-being for future generations, and a good first step is employing smart home tech and green energy practices in their own homes.

According to EPA, electricity usage produces more greenhouse gases than cars in the US. Smart devices can monitor electricity consumption of individual equipment and can remotely shut down energy guzzling devices from a smartphone. Smart light bulbs apart from being more energy efficient than CFL or LED bulbs, are also customizable to change indoor ambience. Changing outdoor lighting to solar powered and choosing smart bulbs with motion sensors, cuts down energy bill.

Low-flow showerheads with LED screens indicating the water temperature and consumption and smart sprinklers connected to weather forecasts, contribute to water conservation. Smart thermostats automatically adjust the temperature and can be operated remotely by smartphones. Upgrading old home appliances like refrigerators, dish washers and dryers with higher energy star rated appliances, further reduces the energy bill.

Smart Security

Smart Security Includes Recognition Of People Wearing Masks And Carrying Guns

Advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) technology are all set to augment the security surveillance systems. Deep Science AI has developed deep learning AI models which can spot individual objects in security camera footage – like people with face masks and guns. The AI algorithm immediately alerts the police with location and description for immediate action. This revolutionary technology costs $2 per camera per day which is about 1/10th of human surveillance of camera feeds.

Deep Science AI is currently focusing on detecting people with masks and guns. However, the future possibilities are endless – like detection of fire, broken windows and employee putting hands up in the air.

The resulting systems do pretty well down to about 30 “pixels on target,” meaning that the gun or face is most confidently detected when it’s that many pixels across in the footage. If one network isn’t quite sure whether something is a gun, the imagery gets sent to a “binary specialist” network that gives a second opinion. If it looks bad enough, it goes to a human, as an alert in a Slack channel, who can alert the authorities. (If no one responds within a few seconds, it goes to a backup human.)

Smart Home Privacy

Privacy, Cost, And Integration Among Concerns Holding Smart Home Acceptance Back

Smart home devices are making lives easier, safer and more comfortable. Tech savvy people have already taken their smart homes to a whole new level of automation, with wide application of sensors, which automatically lock and unlock the doors, operate lights and adjusts thermostats. However, the high cost factor needs to be addressed. Gierad Laput, a Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University, is working on reducing the cost of smart home devices by application of individual sensors to monitor each device. But more sensors mean poor aesthetics and cumbersome devices.

Integrated sensor board has potential domestic and commercial applications. But they are coupled with major drawbacks of data privacy and cyber security vulnerability. These need to be effectively addressed for wide acceptability and scalability.

So Laput and his team wanted to see if they could build just one sensor that could monitor a whole range of activity in a room. And they did. It doesn't look like much; just a little 2-inch-square circuit board that plugs into the wall. The board senses about a dozen different facets of its environment: vibrations, sounds, light color and so on. The sensor communicates wirelessly with a computer, which interprets everything it picks up.

Ease Of Use And Connectivity Will Make The Smart Home Grow

Smart home automation has become a mass reality with wide range of devices and new product launches. From Jim Sutherland’s ECHO IV in 1966 to Tony Fadell’s revolutionary Nest learning thermostat in 2010, we have come a long way. Yet, many customers perceive smart devices as very complicated for use. Smart products in security surveillance, lighting, heating and domestic appliances have shown high acceptance and growth. However, restricted connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Thread, ZigBee, etc. renders incompatibility between different brand devices.

Samsung’s Fridge Family Hub 2.0 has S-Voice assistant and touchscreen for online grocery shopping. Netamo’s smart smoke alarm, compatible with Apple’s Homekit, has ventured with Velux to create smart windows that open and close according to the temperature and indoor air quality. In Germany, Panasonic smart home devices in association with Allianz can detect unexpected motion, glass breakage or water leakage and sends alerts on smartphones. Their service team assist in mitigating risks, investigation and repairs.

Amazon Echo and Google Home are undoubtedly the stars of smart home in 2017, and it's not surprising. In a world where multiple incompatible ecosystems continue to baffle consumers, these seemingly simple smart speakers have built-in, far field microphones and friendly artificial intelligence inside.

Compatibility Is The Key To Amazon’s Smart Home Success

For Amazon, hardware has always been a means to an end. From the Kindle e-reader to the Fire tablets to its TV offerings, the company has always treated the space as something of a loss leader – even with its most popular offerings. Amazon has found success in pricing devices much closer to cost than the competition – something a company can only really get away with if it plans to make up for things somewhere down the road, like, say if you’re in the content selling business.

Amazon’s Echo central hub is an essential part of inter-connected smart home devices. Amazon’s Echo strategy is a huge success with nine times sales this year in comparison to last year. Amazon continually partners with third-party hardware suppliers to manufacture Echo and Alexa compatible smart home devices.

Smart appliance manufacturer Ecobee has announced that its products would be compatible with Amazon platforms, leading to further proliferation of Echo and Alexa. Ecobee’s voice enabled smart thermostat is the proof that Alexa is also a great standalone offering outside the Echo. The Echo line, Alexa and compatible third-party smart devices have powered Amazon way ahead of Apple and Google in the smart home market.
