What to Expect from the Internet of Things in 2019

Date : 1-2-2019

2019 IoT Predictions

As 2018 passes into the annals of history and we move into a new and exciting year ahead, it must be said that it has been quite a ride in the development of smart home and smart city technology.

Over the last 12 months, there has been a continuation in the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT hardware across industry, commerce, retail and smart home setups. This trend is set to continue unabated in 2019, with a predicted 30 billion devices to be in use by 2020.

So, what will it mean for smart homes and industry in the coming year? Here we take a look at just some of the things we can expect from IoT in 2019.

Smart Homes

Home automation has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years, with people all around the world choosing to automate various aspects of their home for convenience and ease. Since 2017, the smart home tech market has grown by more than 250% and is predicted to rise to over $50 billion by 2022. The coming year is expected to see a rise in interoperability and the increased use of devices relating to:

Security – Netcams, door & window sensors, motion sensors

Efficient energy use – Thermostatic controls, remotely controlled heating

Ambience control – Hue lighting & smart speakers

It’s hard to predict exactly what lies in store, but whatever lies around the corner will be designed to make our lives easier and more comfortable.

The Healthcare Sector

Real-time health systems (RTHS) are the hot topic right now in the medical industry, as advances made in technology enable a constantly available stream of patient data for doctors to diagnose and treat people more efficiently. In recent years, concepts like complicated surgery being carried out over the internet when the patient can be hundreds of miles away from the surgeon have been made possible.

We could see more in the way of medical wearable tech to enable doctors to make better-informed decisions, as well as alarm and monitoring equipment to ensure no patient is ever forgotten. 2019 should also see this tech being made available on a much more wide-scale basis.

Smart Cities

As they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day and the realisation of smart cities in the way they were meant to be is something of a herculean task. Much in the way of investment and effort will be put into smart city IoT infrastructure, with the following predictions being made for 2019:

We might be a little way away from the full implementation of driverless cars, but we could see driverless tractors and farm equipment in the following year. Other mass automation may come in mining and manufacturing, with drones and robots becoming widely used.

We may also see smart city residents encouraged to engage with smart tech, with financial incentives like reduced water bills for being a good recycler or for taking public transport. This gamification is something that will help these facilities develop. Also, things like video-as-sensor tech will be increasingly used by cities to increase public safety, save money and optimise operations. All this will hopefully translate to lower costs and a better standard of living for anyone living in a smart city.

In Summary

It’s an exciting time to be involved with IoT and the next few years are predicted to herald a revolution in the way many of us live our lives. From smart homes to manufacturing to the way authorities run our Cities, IoT is most certainly here to stay.
