The Internet of Things began to be recommended by Kevin Ashton on 1999 and started popular through Auto-ID centre in MIT. It keeps growing as today we can see Internet of Things implementation in our home and daily life. University student also use Internet of Things as their project.
With many people developing Internet of Things devices, IoT Platform is getting popular and people wants to use IoT Platform to ease their process in building IoT system.
Internet of Things includes many infrastructure which makes devices connected to the Internet, such as electronic embedded, software, sensors, actuators, and network connection.
Real Time Storage Data – Internet of Things technology needs integration with data storage (Cloud Storage), where data storage from sensor or data from other devices need a real time data storage. It is because IoT’s main focus is data streaming.
IoT Protocol Connection – Protocol Internet of Things from every device might be different. This makes developer must do many changes and data conversions.
Data Processing – Internet of Things is focused on faster data processing to make a real time data insight.
Analytic’s – Statistic processing and data management by various data connections and hardwares have to make a result about accurate data analytic.
Internet of Things, also known as IoT, is a concept of a wider implementations of internet connectivity. Some of the advantages is data sharing, remote control, and etc. Include things in physical life. For example is in food and beverages, electronic, collection, equipment tools, also physical things that are connected to local and global network through sensor and stay active.
The Internet of Things has been a hype for couple of days since it began to be recommended by Kevin Ashton on 1999 and started popular through Auto-ID centre in MIT. At this moment, we can see many people is using Internet of Things. Not only in daily life but it begins a university project for their student. To develop easier, developer is using IoT Platform.
Basically, IoT platform has similar features and basic needs as any other platform to build IoT devices. Some IoT platform provides basic service of a platform. But the main use of IoT Platform is to ease developer/maker to build solution faster by using a platform (IaaS, PaaS, or BaaS) to get lower cost infrastructure.
IoT Platform has became one of regular tools. Most developers will use IoT Platform to develop their product and solution also help them scale up globally. IoT Platform is simply helping engineers to build their Internet of Things project faster and also manage them regularly. This includes building engagement with their user.
Bluetooth Beacon or also called iBeacon which was started being popular on 2014 is the beginning of various implementation of beacon, especially in Internet of Things. The Bluetooth beacon implementation is also in Internet of Things sector such as in Industrial Internet of Things such as in logistic and asset management. Beacon can be used as tagging and tracking for goods and tracking.
There are also more implementations of Bluetooth Beacon in Internet of Things especially for Industry. Here are some example:
1. Asset Management
Asset management, smart delivery, and real time access can help you make sure driver and vehicle operate optimally. Saving works that needed paper or needed manual work from human, B;luetooth Beacon makes it simple for industry to track and manage the asset.
2. Smart Logistics
Logistic system should be fast and detail in order reaching manufacturing goals and deliver the product fast. Thousands of products such as medicines and food must be sorted and transported at low temperatures. With IoT truck can manage these temperatures itself. By detecting temperatures, any changes will be detected and it can switch the temperatures inside the truck. Or if there’s any danger, an alarm is raised and an action is sent. This can reduce long term operational cost with a quick action on a small problem.
