Back in the 90’s automatic doors and self-lighting rooms were fictious devices that were only found in sci-fi movies. Some of us even considered such automatically working devices murky. Funny does it sound today? Things that were once in our imagination alone, are becoming real, and we owe it all to IoT. IoT has invaded our lives, making things simpler. Be it set-top boxes, medical devices, smart home appliances, smart vehicles, or smart curtains, smart taps, smart lights, and smart doors, embedded systems in IoT are revolutionizing the way physical objects are connected, monitored, and controlled in our increasingly interconnected world.
In this article, we will look at the technology that makes systems smart and is in turn making the world smart. Here is a peek into the world of IoT and the technology that works behind it.
Technology behind IoT
All web-enabled smart devices that use IoT and embedded systems, such as processors, sensors, and communication hardware, to collect, send and act on data they accumulate from their environments. They are closely intertwined, with the embedded systems serving as the core technology that connects physical objects to the digital world, providing the intelligence and functionality necessary to enable objects to communicate, collect data, and interact with their environment.
IoT has unleashed a wave of innovation, enabling the development of smart homes, intelligent transportation systems, industrial automation, healthcare monitoring, environmental monitoring, and much more. By leveraging the capabilities of embedded systems, IoT has the potential to transform industries, improve efficiency, enhance decision-making, and improve the overall quality of life.
Here are some application of embedded system in IoT:
- Sensing and Data Acquisition
- Data Processing and Analytics
- Control and Actuation
- Energy Efficiency and Optimization
- Security and Privacy
- Scalability and Interoperability
Application of embedded systems in IoT
Embedded systems form the backbone of IoT by enabling intelligent communication, data processing, and control within connected devices. They incorporate a combination of hardware and software components to gather data from the physical environment through sensors, process that data, make intelligent decisions, and communicate with other devices or cloud-based platforms. This integration of embedded systems in IoT has opened endless possibilities for automation, data-driven insights, and transformative applications across various industries.
IoT devices are typically equipped with embedded systems that enable connectivity using wireless communication technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or cellular networks. They act as the communication gateway, allowing devices to connect to the internet and exchange data with other devices or cloud services.
Embedded systems also integrate sensors and actuators to capture real-time data about the environment, such as temperature, humidity, motion, or light, while actuators enable the control and actuation of physical devices based on the received data. This capability enables automation, remote control, and the ability to monitor and manage physical systems with ease.
Additionally, embedded systems in IoT devices often incorporate microprocessors or microcontrollers that provide the computational power and intelligence needed to process data locally. This edge computing capability allows for real-time processing and analysis at the device level, reducing the need for constant communication with the cloud and enabling faster responses, lower latency, and more efficient use of network resources.
Overall, embedded systems form the backbone of IoT by enabling intelligent communication, data processing, and control within connected devices. They bring together the physical and digital worlds, enabling the creation of innovative applications and services across various domains such as home automation, industrial monitoring, healthcare, transportation, and more.
