With the advent of 5G, changes to the Internet of Things industry are positive and huge. So what is the Internet of Things?
The logic of the Internet of Things is almost the same as the Internet. It is also an Internet-based network, but it has three important characteristics that are different from the Internet. That is, it has the equipment of common objects, self-consistent terminal interconnection, and universal services. Intelligent, its function is to enable all ordinary physical objects that can be independently addressed to implement an interconnected network. In short, it is to use information sensing equipment and networks to connect all items and exchange information, so as to realize intelligent identification and management. However, the application field of the Internet of Things is very wide, and there are more than a dozen industries such as smart home, intelligent transportation, intelligent medical care, and smart cities. So how is the Internet of Things applied to these industries?
Application areas and upgrades of the Internet of Things
Since the Internet of Things has not yet become widespread, probably the most we know about him is smart home, and smart home is also an industry that best reflects the characteristics of the Internet of Things.
In simple terms, the common smart home is to achieve centralized control by connecting some of the home's originally manually operated equipment such as refrigerators, air conditioners, lighting equipment, curtains, etc. with a network, such as by remote control or smart phone, but this kind of The traditional Internet of Things is still too cumbersome and not user-friendly for users. It can only be said that the switches of these furnitures are centralized. But today's 5G and artificial intelligence have changed that.
Because of 5G, all homes will no longer have problems such as control delays; and the development of artificial intelligence is to free users of tedious manipulations. For example, users no longer need to consider whether they need to turn on air conditioning today, because the AI system will The forecast adjusts the indoor temperature accordingly; the user no longer needs to consider the lighting equipment switch, for example, when the mattress senses that the user needs to be ready to sleep, the light will automatically dim or switch to the bedside lamp; even prepare coffee for the user every morning And breakfast, automatic cleaning after the owner goes out, etc., the realization of these scenarios is only a matter of time, and is likely to be in the near future.
The mansion of Bill Gates, the world's richest man, is located on the shore of Lake Washington in the United States, and the home of the protagonist Tony in the Marvel movie "Iron Man" is the best representative of the smart home in the future.
In addition to smart homes, another IoT technology that is closely related to our lives is smart medicine. Smart medicine has a wide range of businesses, mainly including RFID technology management, remote treatment, medical databases, etc., and the popularity of smart medicine has affected hospital information systems. Management and greatly improving the sharing efficiency of medical resources have a significant impact on reducing public medical costs.
And remote treatment in intelligent medical treatment is developing rapidly in China. Application software such as Ali Health and Dr. Lilac have been accepted by most Chinese people. The emergence of such software not only solves the problems of current registration difficulties and long queue time. The Internet of Things can get in touch with hospital doctors quickly and in real time to exchange medical conditions, and realize that minor illnesses and pains do not need to go out.
However, in the era of AI, remote intelligent doctors that can be diagnosed faster and more accurately than real people may appear. Because artificial intelligence can analyze the current judgment through a large amount of past data, the emergence of artificial intelligence remote doctors will bring The impact is subversive.
Impact of the Internet of Things on China
Many people probably don't know that the Internet of Things concept, which seems to be a foreign word, was actually put forward by China. In 1999, a concept called sensor network was proposed at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which is the prototype of the Internet of Things.
Back in the contemporary era, there may not be another country in the world that is more suitable for large-scale development of IoT technology than China. Because China has a large and dense population and is at the forefront of science and technology in the world, so from the perspective of development needs and development foundation, China's conditions are very suitable. For example, the two concepts of intelligent transportation and smart cities can perfectly solve the problems of transportation order and urban convenience in big cities. And China is the first country to start the 5G era, which is equivalent to providing an "acceleration belt" for the development of the Internet of Things.
If you go back four or five years ago, people's concept of the Internet of Things will probably be the same as high-tech such as 3D printing and artificial intelligence during the same period. What's more curious is not optimistic, it seems that this seems to belong to The technology of the future is not possible; however, we have come to the future today. The once amazing technology is now within our reach.
