Retail (brick-and-mortar and e-commerce) can leverage computer vision to analyze image data and generate insights. With video cameras around a retail store collecting digital images and a Deep Learning (DP) model, the retail store could identify and classify objects accurately and react immediately to what they see. But implementing Computer Vision can be pretty challenging because it needs large sets of data and a scalable and manageable computing power that only the cloud could give.
Creating and controlling microclimates inside greenhouses for sensitive plants such as orchids, exotic fruits, and mushrooms can be pretty challenging. Although there are some monitoring and controlling systems, such as SCADA, that can control environments for such sensitive plants; these systems have limitations when it comes to connectivity and interoperability.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vital component for a Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) solution. An IoT-based RPM system improves patients’ health-related outcomes and helps them reduce expenses. It also allows doctors to optimize patient care and diagnosis efficiency. Doctors can remotely monitor patients in acute conditions on an ongoing basis and immediately attend to patients in distant locations.
Intelligent Transportation System, and smart traffic management systems are an indispensable component in developing Smart Cities. In any city, mobility is a key concern, and not just limited to traffic congestion control and information, but also road safety and efficient infrastructure usage. These technology solutions prepare Smart Cities for coming technology evolutions, including Connected Autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and full deployment of 5G networks.
Temperature-sensitive products like vaccines, drugs, chemicals, or foods like seafood, meat, or dairy, require temperature-controlled environments across their entire supply chain. A slight fluctuation in temperature and the whole batch of products may be spoiled or damaged completely.
Current IT monitoring systems are not designed to operate in challenging and dangerous environments, such as the ones found in underground mines. They won’t tolerate dust, high/low temperatures, humidity, or explosions. If a device were to withstand such conditions, providing reliable and fast communications to various dispersed in-field sensors, video cameras is still a pretty challenging endeavor.
The growing consequences of accelerating climate change have been visible across the world with wildfires, floods, severe heatwaves, and even tropical cyclones in recent years. Climate change presents many challenges to society, as extreme weather events and pollution increases disease infection, while frequent wildfires and droughts threatens livelihoods. Data from an automated weather station (AWS) can be used to detect climate change trends and input into models to predict future changes in our environment.
