If you have heard or read about IoT, chances are you’ve come across a number of different perspectives. Despite how complex IoT seems, it essentially comes down to four areas:

  • Physical objects may be tagged with technologies such as barcodes, QR codes, RFID, NFC tags etc., and you need a separate scanner device (e.g. a smartphone) to interact with them.

  • Physical objects may also be connected to the IoT directly with an embedded low-powered computer device.

  • The connected devices may have sensors that collect data (for example measuring environment temperature) as well as actuators that trigger actions (for example starting an engine). You can use them to both monitor and control physical objects.

  • Analysis of the collected data is performed for insights on how to optimise existing processes.

So how do you apply these building blocks to your business transformation journey? Call us on +44 (0) 3339 397 967 to find out how Infraware can help you capture and analyse untapped data.
