We undertake research projects on various applications for the Internet of Things for our clients. The aim of the this Research initiative is to address the large potential for IoT-based capabilities in the developing countries and to coordinate the convergence of ongoing activities.
Just starting your IoT journey and want to learn about implementations in your industry? We write commissioned white papers to understanding and harnessing IoT in different sectors. These White Papers could be State focused or Sector centric or at times even a combination of the two.
Start or enhance your Internet of Things journey with expert advisory services. Leverage our years of cross domain experience which is backed by a deep understanding of IoT which allows us to help present solution scenarios that give life to your IoT Vision.
The Internet of Things is set to disrupt the way we live and work. Smart homes filled with connected products are loaded with possibilities to make our lives easier, more convenient, and more comfortable. There is no shortage of possibilities for smart home IoT devices, and home automation seems to be the wave of the future.
Real world opportunities for an IoT enabled Campus includes reports of campus traffic - through walking, dining halls and break rooms, and, most importantly, through classrooms and laboratories. The applications could be used as part of a step-wise planning process, or executed continuously to inform ongoing allocation adjustments.
As healthcare costs rise at an unsustainable rate in most of the developed world, policymakers are reaching the broad consensus that maintaining health is just as important as treating conditions. Connected healthcare, especially for chronic sufferers, encourages patient self-management while at the same time reducing costs.
We are always on the lookout for innovative IoT devices, products and even solutions to enrich our offerings.
If you have an innovation - chances are that we would love to hear from you. Do get in touch with us at the earliest.
Obviously with financial feasibility, the opportunity for socio-economic development and enabling political legislation already in place, IoT looks like a great proposition, but, how can it be used in cases relevant and specific to rural India? There are a lot of application areas where IoT can significantly improve the situation.
The military concept of decision cycles places information flow at the heart of all activities from logistics to intelligence; in some cases, information's importance and impact is so great that it is classified in the same category as artillery - as a deadly long-range weapon. With information so central to all activities, the military is naturally hungry for technology or tools that improve communication, routing, or processing of information. The Internet of Things (IoT) is one such technology.
IoT represents a world of opportunity for railroads and the technology providers that serve them. And it's a world strategists in all railroad departments - from information technology (IT) to transportation to engineering to mechanical to communication and signaling - will need to tap into and be engaged with as the digital evolution continues.
We have already released our White paper for 'IoT in Rural India' - you can read it
We shall soon be releasing our white papers on the other sectors also.
We focus on the following core areas - addressing each either individually or together.
The assignments can be either state or country specific.
So what does the specific Indian scenario look like in the grand scheme of things for IoT?
IoT is set to create substantial changes for populations in emerging and developing countries like India. The prospects for widespread implementation of IoT solutions in development contexts are helped by broader technological and social trends:
Prices for sensors, an integral component of IoT applications, have declined by about 80 - 90 per cent over the past five years.
Internet penetration in developing countries is increasing. 35 per cent of people in developing countries now have access to the Internet. And the falling cost of smartphones is driving rapid uptake in Internet access in the developing world. Across emerging and developing countries, a median average of 24 per cent of the population now owns such a device.
Due to the potential of the IoT, both the Central as well as the State governments in India are beginning to develop policies to support IoT innovations. The first ever Internet of Things Policy Document was released by the Indian Government in October 2014 and aims to create an IoT industry in India of 15 billion US dollars by 2020. It also addresses the following goals:
To undertake capacity development (human and technological) for IoT specific skillsets for domestic and international markets.
To undertake research and development for all the assisting technologies.
To develop IoT products specific to Indian needs in all possible domains.
iD-iOT-iCITY (pronounced as idioticity) focuses on Research based White Papers and Advisory Services aimed at harnessing the potential offered by Internet of Things in addressing the various issues related to the Rural Sector in India and other developing economies.
The IoT practice focuses on various sectors wherein IoT can make in impact in improving efficiency. This is supplemented with consulting and advisory services that assist governments and ministries create an approach policy to harness the potential of this technology.
