There is a sizeable increase in the way technology controls our lives now. A very few people in the yester years would have thought driverless cars can become a reality, technology has shrunk our ability to actually do stuffs manually by bringing in automation everywhere. And same is the case with the Next Big Thing becoming obsolete in no time.
The technological deterrence to this obsoletion is not some nascent out of college tech, but it’s been around for more than a decade now. There is an overwhelming promise shown by this technology, IoT (Internet of Things).
To put what this technology does in a nutshell, one could say, it gives you power to control all your home appliances or any device assigned an IP to be controlled via Internet. With IPv6, almost anything and everything can be assigned as a node with an IP; this has strengthened the resolve to create more efficient and intuitive Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication methods.
Similarly, searching for your car keys or TV remote etc., you forgot somewhere in the midst, has got lot easier. Pixie app, a LoT (Location of Things) has made life easier by helping you locate misplaced things exactly where you last left them. Pixie has caught eyeballs because of its rather simple approach to locate things pictured in its mobile app as pixie points, and triangulating it with the pixie beacons.
Centres For Excellence-Internet Of Things (CoE-IoT)
Synergy Technology Services (STS) has been brainstorming to check the feasibility of applications in M2M communication by partnering with product firms to identify and solve IT bottle necks that arise when integrating cross platform technologies.
Our mobility team works in tandem with IoT team to come up with a ground breaking app that will bridge the communication gap and facilitate seamless connectivity between a smartphone and any home appliance that we wish to control.
For this ground breaking app to perform at its peak; always, we have brought in a substantial change in the outlook and approach to M2M communication. For large infrastructures to be controlled using IoT there has to be a comprehensive action plan that can, not only provide but also sustain data overheads in the long run. And this can achieved only through cloud hosted application, this is mostly because of the scalability of technologies with data hosted on cloud.
Telematics is one area which we have been aggressively pursuing to provide best of IT services. Vehicle manufacturers and Logistics corporations are always looking to provide instant support to their customers and continuously monitor their service delivery. We have developed a system for one such corporation to capture a chain of events and deliver real time data over the air.
LoT has caught our attention in crude way; we have setup internal think tank groups to identify and explore areas for innovation and make this technology inclusive.
However, IoT and LoT have a long way to go before it can be viable technologies for everyday use.
And yes, we are working relentlessly to fast track these possibilities and make a tangible impact.
