For many years now, IoT has been used in the automotive industry. Many vehicles now are fitted with remote sensors that improve road safety by monitoring driving behaviours and enabling proactive driver awareness and education.
In the industrial space, IOT is becoming a norm rather than the exception. It is widely used because it contributes significant value towards employee safety and performance as well as machinery compliance. It helps reduce downtime substantially and provide real-time insights that can help avoid operation downtime and safety risks.
IoT technology is also widely used by the police and emergency forces in many countries. The use of extensive CCTV networks, alarm systems, sound detection devices, and motions sensors help keep the general public safe to an extent never seen before.
Personal and fitness trackers are also now widely used and they greatly benefit vulnerable and elderly people. They are proven to be highly effective in detecting situations where people could be in danger or at risk. By detecting potential dangers, vulnerable individuals are able to get help and support they need.
