The Scope of IoT in Wireless Sensor Technology

Applied Tech Review | Friday, March 26, 2021

With the integration of wireless sensors, the IoT landscape has diversified into exclusive solutions for various ecosystems, with the top industries attaining returns from IoT.

FREMONT, CA: Recent years have witnessed massive advances in the design and applications of wirelessly networked and embedded sensors. Wireless sensor nodes are usually low-cost, low-power, small devices armed with limited sensing, data processing, wireless communication potentials, and power supplies. The fast-paced evolution of wireless sensor technology has boosted the development and implementation of many novel types of wireless sensors. Although distant devices and wireless sensors function closely, they must be scaled to simplify more operations.

Wireless sensors can empower IoT applications to create endless opportunities. The interference of connected devices in redefining the house chores requires no elaboration. From sensors on doors to monitor mobile usage to maintaining leaking pipes & toilets leveraging wireless water sensors, the homes are now smarter, safer, and energy-efficient. However, the home's essential usage comes from security systems that notify the user about untimely access to the property. And then, some thermostats can be monitored to adjust the whole HVAC system.

Cellular networks may not be the primary choice for most applications as the operational IoT project costs are high, and the power needs are beyond the scope. Services like Advanced Driver Assistant Services, vehicle tracking, and traffic routing can adopt high bandwidth facilities. Since 5G is about to roll out, high-speed mobility combined with ultra-low latency can simplify time-sensitive industrial automation and take a step towards the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT). WiFi networks are not useful for battery-operated IoT sensors in large-scale projects.

The concept of one billion connected devices is being completely exploited and isn't the end of the enticement anymore. Smart homes, smart buildings, smart agriculture, smart cities,  and supply chain management are just some areas that the wireless sensor networks will impact. Simultaneously, the scope of connected devices, the risks attached, and the endless applications will set the narrative for the future for the talking devices.
