How did idea of IoT came? What are the trends in IoT?

Hi guys! Welcome to a very interesting session titled:

 "How did the Idea of IoT came?":

which will be very interesting when you will know after this discussion. 

So, let's start!!!

So I'm going to go over three ideas of IoT within the industry before the term coming out. So the first one that I'm going to touch on is the ATM. So there was a gentleman, a Scotsman, john Shepard Baron, and he was relaxing at the end of a long day thinking over what he had done and remembered that he walked right up to a vending machine and got a candy bar. And it was very simple, very easy, and he liked it.

And he thought, if I can do this, it's so easy. Why can't I get my money that way? So he contemplated the idea, and then brought it to a bank Barclay in London, and pitched the idea. The bank liked it. They said, you know, that would be nice.

That's a good feature. So it took a couple of months, but they were able to implement this idea, and that that came about the first IoT adoption. So you have your financial information that's accessible by the Internet, and being able to get that money right away. So that was the first implementation. 

 Coke Machine:

The second one I'm going to talk about was actually at Carnegie Mellon. So some computer science, graduate students had connected sensors to a coke machine. And the story goes that at Carnegie Mellon, there are several different coke machines on campus. But the computer science building had a Coke machine that was 10 cents cheaper than every other coke machine on campus. So needless to say it was a very popular machine.

Unfortunately for the computer science graduate students, it was on the third floor. And so what the students hated would be to walk up the third floor, get to the coke machine, and then find out that it was empty.

Even worse, if they walked to the third floor, got to the coke machine, put their money in press the button, expecting an ice-cold Coke, but received a lukewarm coke that had just been replaced. So what they did was they added sensors to each of the cylinders within the coke machine, so that they can see exactly how full that coke machine is in each column. 


And if that coke had been loaded in that machine for over three hours, then it was automatically labeled as cold. So this idea came about. And all of this information was accessible via the internet. 


And the students enjoyed being able to look at the coke machine from their classroom and know if they're gonna get a cold coke. So right now, at Carnegie Mellon, they have replaced this machine with an updated version, it is also connected to the internet. 


 And the last concept that I'm going to talk about is the toaster that was connected to the internet. And so in 1989, john ROM key was challenged by the president of the interrupt internet networking show. And the President said, if you're able to connect a toaster to the internet this year, then next year's show will give you star placement. So rocky liked this idea.

He was very interested in challenges wanted to show his strength. And so he was able to connect this toaster to the internet. And that President followed through the next year giving him that star placement. This toaster had one setting, and that was power. 


And so the amount of time that it was on dictated how dark that toast was added a couple of years later, who's able to make an end of arm tool to pick up a piece of bread and put it in that toaster. So we have the full automation a couple of years after this. So right now, we have come quite a long way from connecting toasters to the internet.

Some Bonus Information:

 Trends of IoT which convince us to adapt it:

I just want to talk to you about some of the trends of internet of things today in the supply chain and materials handling industry which make us imagine the future of IoT very brightly!!!

 Mesh networks:

So the first technological trend that I would like to talk to you about is mesh networks. So mesh networks are essentially the ability of devices to talk to each other without having to go through a middleman like a router. 

Cellular networks:

The second trend that I want to talk to you about is cellular networks. So this one you might be more familiar with.

I want to give you a brief history of how cellular networks came to be. But rather than going through every individual point, I just want you to notice here that the first system,  the mobile telephony system in 1949, wasn't improved until 1969, with the improved mobile telephone service.

So that's about a 20-year gap, then you get 1g in 1984, that's about 16 years, then from 84 to 2000. That's about 16 years. But then as soon as we turn into the new millennium into 2000, what you start seeing is that technologies keep improving. 

And I'm sure all of us remember here, the razor, the Motorola razor 3g, and then when the iPhone came out, and it started supporting 4g. And 5g is expected to be around by 2022. 


So really, what you see there is that we're having an exponential growth in the deployment of cellular networks and the improvement of cellular networks.

And the third trend that I want to talk to you about is sensors. So rather than just talking about sensors, we've had sensors forever, right? But what I want to talk to you about is the decrease in the cost of sensors. 

 Let's talk about the cost of the average sensor that you will use an embedded device from 2004, up until 2020. So that's about a 16-year run. And what you see here is that the average cost for a sensor was $1 and 30 cents in 2004. 

That sensor for 2020 is 38 cents for the same average sensor. So what this means is that there is roughly a 23% cost reduction, year over year for IoT sensors. 

So, that's it for today guys! Hope it helped you and gave you a detailed info.
