Creating a smarter, connected world

From smart homes to Industry 4.0, consumer and industrial devices are having chips inserted into them to collect and communicate data.

Overview

Smart watches, connected thermometers and smart refrigerators are just some of the everyday items now connected to the web as part of the Internet of Things (IoT). But the IoT and the increasing digitization of our world has far wider implications than simply how we monitor the amount of milk in our fridges or the number of steps we’ve taken.

Outside the home, connected machines and objects in factories offer the potential for a new industrial revolution (Industry 4.0); smart transport and waste management are opening the way to creating ‘smart cities’; and new wearables and connected healthcare devices have the potential to change treatment options for patients and deliver vast amounts of data to researchers.

Did You Know?

  • ≈29bn

    connected devices are forecast by 2022, of which around 18bn will be related to the IoT.[1]

  • 137bn

    U.S. dollar is the forecasted value of the global IoT healthcare market by 2021.[2]

  • 35%

    of US manufacturers are using data from smart sensors within their set-ups already.
