The Internet Of Things
The Internet of Things, or "IoT" is fast becoming a fixture in many areas for industry and community. With the expectation of billions of physical devices around the world connecting to the internet in the next few years, IoT is making it possible to collect, analyse and share data between devices. Real time data promotes the ability to build better products, identify trends, reduce risk and minimise waste in ways that has not been cost effective or practical in the past.
Thanks to cheaper and miniaturisation in devices and wireless networks, it's now possible to turn almost anything, from a simple tag to an A380 Airbus, into an IoT device. The IoT adds a level of digital intelligence to devices that would be otherwise be working in isolation, enabling them to communicate without a human being involved, and merging the digital and physical worlds.
The IoT is currently providing us with a glimpse into the future.
The Adelaide Hills Business Centre is the first to install a public long range (LoRaWAN) IoT Gateway in the Adelaide Hills region and as such are are keen to grow local awareness and community involvement at all levels.
