Once that word crossed your mind, what has appeared in your thoughts? some big things such as Elephant, Dinosaur, or Big things such as buildings? Maybe you may turn your mind a little bit into inovation.
Yes. Big things here is an inovation.
Big inovation. Alexander Graham Bell created telephone on 1876. It was a huge step of inovation for humanity that helped them to communicate with others in far distance. It’s now growing until that inovation we called smartphone. the way we can communicate with other easier and faster. Doesn’t have to be limited by distance. People can communicate with anyone they want in all around the world.
As in this era, big things or big inovation is Internet of Things. The Internet of Things revolves around increased machine-to-machine communication; it’s built on cloud computing and networks of data-gathering sensors; it’s mobile, virtual, and instantaneous connection; and they say it’s going to make everything in our lives from streetlights to seaports “smart.”
Let’s look at one example. In 2007, a bridge collapsed in Minnesota, killing many people, because of steel plates that were inadequate to handle the bridge’s load. When we rebuild bridges, we can use smart cement: cement equipped with sensors to monitor stresses, cracks, and warpages. This is cement that alerts us to fix problems before they cause a catastrophe. And these technologies aren’t limited to the bridge’s structure.
If there’s ice on the bridge, the same sensors in the concrete will detect it and communicate the information via the wireless internet to your car. Once your car knows there’s a hazard ahead, it will instruct the driver to slow down, and if the driver doesn’t, then the car will slow down for him. This is just one of the ways that sensor-to-machine and machine-to-machine communication can take place. Sensors on the bridge connect to machines in the car: we turn information into action.
That’s a simple example of how Internet of Things works. The real question is “How does it apply to real life?”
To anwer that question, people need to have another big things. IN this case id Big Dream. What is your biggest dream so far? Getting things without having to move your body? or eating without having to cook it? All will be easier with Internet of Things.
You might start to see the implications here. What can you achieve when a smart car and a smart city grid start talking to each other? We’re going to have traffic flow optimization, because instead of just having stoplights on fixed timers, we’ll have smart stoplights that can respond to changes in traffic flow. Traffic and street conditions will be communicated to drivers, rerouting them around areas that are congested, snowed-in, or tied up in construction.
You see what i’m talking about here. The new big things in Inovation and dream. It’s up to us how will we grow it.
