Healthcare IoT: Smart Technology for Better Healthcare

Healthcare IoT: Smart Technology for Better Healthcare

In order to define the future, we need to identify, predict, analyze, and assess the information provided by every imaginable source. Talking of information, we look for it in the form of Big Data and perhaps the most important source of information is the human body. The Internet of Things is paving way for innovation in nearly every aspect of human existence and soon we will see this technology touching lives, quite literally! Traditionally physicians had a holistic view of the patient’s health condition giving them limited access to the root cause, thereby forcing them to make decisions with very less data. As a result, Electronic Medical Records (EMR) for each patient was maintained. Furthermore, the hospitals and assisted living facilities do not have the resources to monitor every resident and these residents are not capable of, or equipped to monitor and regulate themselves. Many healthcare organizations do not apply data from connected devices to other business processes which creates inefficiency, potential for data loss, and mistakes in diagnosis....

Telematics – An important tool in Fleet Management

Telematics – An important tool in Fleet Management

Technology has gained trust and control over almost every sphere of our lives. Our facilities are turning smart, industries are transforming digitally and the lifestyles have become ever-connected. Companies battle to thrive on this wave of digitization, thereby continuously innovating and creating newer avenues of technology adoption. Telematics, a concept that combines telecommunications and informatics, is one such innovation that technology buffs bank on to fill the gaps and redefine fleet management. Fleet management is the field of monitoring fleet costs, running conditions, downtimes and optimal decision making on trade–offs between fixed costs and running costs of ships, rail cars and commercial vehicles like cars, trucks etc. It includes a wide range of functions such as vehicle tracking, geo-fencing and diagnostics, route-optimization, personalized insurance, vehicle financing and preventative maintenance, driver behavior monitoring and fuel management, vehicle safety and health management. Telematics is the data science that puts together all the critical information you need for fleet management, right at your fingertips. What is it that makes logistics efficient –...

How far is the country from the future of mobility? – Challenges in designing autonomous cars for India

How far is the country from the future of mobility? – Challenges in designing autonomous cars for India

A technological revolution always happens when it is accompanied by changes in and around the entire ecosystem. It is this environment which triggers innovations across the companies and helps create guidelines for the newly formed setup. Likewise disruption created by introduction of autonomous cars is not solely an evolution of traditional cars but in fact it stands to revolutionize various other sectors in the process. An autonomous car is an intelligent thinking vehicle running on four wheels with capabilities to connect with the outside world. It should not be confused with a connected car as the latter only supplies information to the driver using connectivity technologies such as 3G or 4G LTE. It lacks the decision making senses, while the former is self driven and does not require a human to control it. Autonomous cars engage sophisticated technologies like AI, big data, sensory inputs and connectivity to take decisions on behalf of humans on board. Such technologies deploy complex algorithms and reasoning concepts against physical driving conditions to infuse...

Building Physical and Digital Competencies for Enterprise Growth

Building Physical and Digital Competencies for Enterprise Growth

Change is the only constant and it is our only way forward; probably this is why we have been constantly digitizing almost everything we consume. Compact discs (CDs) took over the traditional audio cassettes back in the early 90s and since we have been storing and listening to music in the digital format. Our books have become eBooks. Online content channels stream our favorite TV shows and movies on a single click. Today, businesses and enterprises have started adopting digitization to deliver enhanced customer experiences. By adopting an extremely data-driven approach, these companies are able to design and constantly fine-tune the customer experience. But does that mean a digital change is the only way to fight industrial disruption? No. Merely embracing the change wouldn’t help enterprises ace the race. A strong technology background, an in-depth understanding of physical as well as digital competencies, and finally leveraging the digital assets would account for a well-equipped structure. NikeiD can be looked upon as a great example of building physical and digital...

IoT is enabling endless possibilities in the Smart Building and Home Automation space

IoT is enabling endless possibilities in the Smart Building and Home Automation space

Along with the digital transformation in the automotive and industrial segments, Internet of Things (IoT) has been creating a lot of buzz around smart buildings as well.  From ‘smart home’ to ‘connected enterprise’, IoT has been consistently making our surroundings increasingly intuitive through technology. Disruptive pressure to attain improved operational and energy efficiency is forcing construction managers to look up to smart building technologies for improved occupant experiences. Upcoming trends in the connected building solutions, whether it is about communication interfaces, video surveillance, environmental controls, or energy conservation, can deliver significant cost savings and efficiency gains. Recent disruptions in the Indian telecommunication service industry, such as 4G and competitive data packages by ISPs, will make these trends to evolve at a faster and affordable pace. The smart home revolution happened quicker than anticipated. Many of us might have just realized that the products and expertise required to achieve these futuristic results already exist. The Amazon dash button, as a part of smart home kitchen, allows you to re-order things...
