What will the industrial internet of things mean for you?

Agriculture is likely to be one of the industries most affected by IoT

The internet of things is everywhere, and is set to be an integral part of all our lives very soon.

Even our swimwear could soon be part of the internet of things (IoT), if Vodafone has anything to do with it.

As RS Components shows in its infographic below, the industrial IoT revolution will be powered by intelligent machines, using low-cost sensors and long-range wireless technology.

We reported earlier this week that Trinity College Dublin was the first Irish university to join the LoRa Alliance, an international organisation encouraging the rapid deployment of the IoT.

With the ‘age of the machines’ imminent, Ireland is something of a leader in this field, being home to many trailblazing companies working in the area.

For a nice summation of what the industrial IoT could mean for you, take a look at this infographic.
