Big data is no longer a new horizon of possibilities as the already proliferation of digital data across every facet of life has become a massive force in shaping business decision making and IT strategy for most businesses. In the recent times, we have come across several amusing data-driven technologies that created immense value for our life. Many of these connected devices and gadgets allowing us bigger exposure to Internet of Things (IoT) offered us new ways of communication, collaboration, health and fitness tracking, health management and even managing the environment in our living place.
Let us have a look at few examples of how Big Data is creating value through the Internet of Things.
Waking Up With A Smart Experience
Instead of waking up with the same boring ringtone that your device is gurgling out for years, what about waking up with an illumination that just offers a simulated sunrise experience? Just a soft glow of light increasing gradually as it happens during sunrise would make a nice awakening experience, right? Well, with smart lighting solutions offered by various brands it has now become a reality. These lights learn from the user interactions and can behave contextually thanks to the advanced sensors feeding them user data. All that consumers need to do is to turn on the reminder, set the mood and go to sleep.
Home Environment Control
No, it is not the air conditioning alone that changes the interior environment but now the AI enabled heating and cooling systems can allow more contextual and accurate control of home temperature. Unlike the manual control in switching the temperature, the new smart home environment control technology allows changing the ambience as per the preference of the user at different times. By knowing the preferences of temperature by the user in various times of the day and circumstances this new environment control mechanism can change the temperature.
Fitness Tracking Bands
In the recent times, we have seen the advent of an array of fitness bands that in real time can track the fitness level of the user. The data accessed further through a cloud-enabled app delivers a complete fitness report for a period. From calorie burning to measuring heartbeats and blood pressure level to change of fitness quotient in different practices and tasks, it can measure many aspects that in the long run can help living better and healthier.
Treating Sleep Deprivation
We are overstressed most of the times these days and this often results in terrible sleep deprivation. Well, often by monitoring the sleeping patterns and the habits we can find a solution to this health issue. Now, a Big Data based technology called SleepIQ packed inside a special mattress can accurately measure your breathing rate, heart rate, body movement etc. during sleep. This crucial data further can be put to analysis and measures can be initiated to make sleep quality better.
Big Data Based Patient Monitoring
Monitoring devices in the recent years have got an overhaul thanks to latest GEO-tracking technologies and thanks to these monitoring devices monitoring patients and diseased people have become easier than ever. There have been GPS enabled sticks or bands that can help monitoring patient movement and physical changes in real time. The data gathered from these sensors further can be utilized for a medical report.
