Covid-19 pandemic has led to the adoption of IOT technologies for various essential purposes.
FREMONT, CA: Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, nations, corporations, and residents throughout the world have seen many aspects of their existence turned upside down. The rising demand for data insights and remote access across every commercial, industrial, and government sector has paved the way for faster adoption of Internet of Things-based technologies and automation.
There are many ways in which IoT has played a significant role during the pandemic, some of which are as follows:
Traffic management and emergency response
With increased public awareness of public emergencies, the importance of clear communications for first responders, as well as their ability to navigate city streets swiftly, has become even more apparent. This is another area of IoT that is fast expanding. IoT-connected devices can give priority and pre-emptive communications for first responders and provide communications for centralized traffic control to keep traffic flowing and emergency lanes open.
Delivering and monitoring medications
In the supply-chain problem of spreading a COVID-19 vaccination over the world, the Internet of Things and machine-to-machine connectivity play critical roles. Vaccines and medications to treat and prevent the virus must not only be widely distributed over the world, but they must also be temperature-sensitive. Therefore, mission-critical instruments, including sensors that monitor temperature and humidity conditions and protect the integrity of delicate material from the lab to the patients, are automated.
Secure connections for work from home
The eruption in the quantity of people working remotely has been the most ubiquitous trend resulting from the pandemic. During the epidemic, they maintained business continuity thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT). It allowed them to stay in touch with their customers, vendors, and workers. Consumer/residential Wi-Fi does not meet business standards for protecting intellectual data and sensitive internal conversations, which is a problem for many firms with a remote workforce today. The most trustworthy solutions give workers a centrally controlled, highly reliable, secure, and robust cellular connection.
One of the most significant acknowledgments to the COVID-19 pandemic has been the deployment of contact tracing to track the virus's progress and notify residents of their exposure so that they can take immediate action. By recognizing small outbreaks and preventing them from spreading into more prominent clusters, contact tracing helps protect employees, students, and others. IoT can help with contact tracing.
