Internet of Things Will Drive Growth in Connected Devices

Wireless connected devices are set to double by 2020 and it's all down to the Internet of Things (IoT). According to technology market intelligence company ABI Research, wireless connected devices will exceed 16 billion in 2014, about 20% more than in 2013, and then more than double that by 2020 with 40.9 billion devices. However hub devices such as smartphones and PCs are set to drop from 44% of the wireless connected devices total to 32% by 2020. Meaning the main driver for the increase in wireless devices will be non-hub devices such as sensor nodes and accessories, which are expected to record a 75% growth between now and 2020. You don't have to travel far to see this trend playing out in reality. Most modern homes are packed with wireless connected non-hub devices such as TVs, thermostats and refrigerators. But it's in industrial operations where IoT is having its biggest impact with manufacturers harnessing smart technology to enhance efficiency, safety and return on assets, and reduce disconnects between the manufacturing and enterprise networks. According to business intelligence research experts Aberdeen Group, as much as 70% of manufacturing executives are focusing on plant-floor data initiatives to drive operational and business excellence.

Applications for Smart City

A smart city uses information and communication technologies (ICT) to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to improve contact between citizens and government.Sectors that have been developing smart city technology include government services,transport and traffic management, energy, health care,water, innovative urban agriculture and waste management.Smart city applications are developed with the goal of improving the management of urban flows and allowing for real time responses to challenges. A smart city may therefore be more prepared to respond to challenges than one with a simple 'transactional' relationship with its citizens. Other terms that have been used for similar concepts include ‘cyberville, ‘digital city’’, ‘electronic communities’, ‘flexicity’, ‘information city’, 'intelligent city', ‘knowledge-based city, 'MESH city', ‘telecity, ‘teletopia’’, 'Ubiquitous city', ‘wired city’.

Major technological, economic and environmental changes have generated interest in smart cities, including climate change, economic restructuring, the move to online retail and entertainment, ageing populations, and pressures on public finances. The European Union (EU) has devoted constant efforts to devising a strategy for achieving 'smart' urban growth for its metropolitan city-regions. The EU has developed a range of programmes under ‘Europe’s Digital Agenda". In 2010, it highlighted its focus on strengthening innovation and investment in ICT services for the purpose of improving public services and quality of life. Arup estimates that the global market for smart urban services will be $400 billion per annum by 2020. Examples of Smart City technologies and programs have been implemented in Milton Keynes, Southampton,Amsterdam, Barcelona and Stockholm.
