With precise information on the wind speed and slope of the green, you can choose your club for the stroke. As you repeat this routine, you will be able to identify the mistake you make, so that you can improve on them.

IoT Application – Healthcare



Healthcare is the largest beneficiary of IoT, as information for all patients and the medical practitioner will be available online. Patients no longer worry about maintaining their medical records, and doctors can access the entire information of the patient conveniently. Patients can monitor their health daily and doctors can go through the charts during consultations. The slightest abnormality can be identified and treated by the physician, without missing any symptom.

IoT Application – Smart Home

Ever since Iron-man came out, everyone has been going crazy about Jarvis and how Tony Stark can control everything in his house seamlessly through Jarvis. A smart home can be set up with the integration of all the devices including the air conditioners, lights, washing machine, CCTV camera, locks, etc. The application enables you the control of the devices from any location, as long as, devices remain connected to the server.



The appliances in our homes are getting integrated, enabling the performance of tasks without physical presence. Through integrated applications setting the room temperature, unlocking doors, monitoring the house can be done remotely. You can control and answer the door through applications, allowing the visitor to enter the premises by unlocking the house door.

IoT Application – Automobiles



With the help of IoT driver-less cars have become a reality. After feeding the details of the destination, the car will follow the most convenient path to the location. Big players like Tesla, Google, Apple have been present in the automobile industry and have integrated the use of technology to optimize the use of automobiles. IoT enables the health checkup of the car and suggests maintenance and repair work when necessary. With better health of the automobile, lesser pollutants infiltrate the air around us, making the environment cleaner.

IoT Application – Urban

For urban residents, automated transportation, waste management, energy distribution, surveillance, water distribution, and environmental assessment are the direct results of IoT. Not only will optimal utilization of the resources bring down the costs, but with better distribution, the resources will be able to reach more homes.



Cities will be able to identify the sources of pollution and tackle the root cause of it, making the lives greener and healthier. Trackers will enable data collection of noise pollution and air pollution at different times of the day, and create a chart with proper indices. This information is imperative to effectively combat the menaces in the surroundings and effectively bring down the level of pollution. Urban planners will improve management systems and keep the cities cleaner and safer.

IoT Applications – Agriculture and Industrial


IoT enables the tracking, packing, and shipping of products including the tracking of raw materials, and the condition of the finished products. IoT enables Industries to identify means for efficient production units through the reduction of human intervention. The raw materials are molded into finished products with minimal human intervention, reducing the production time of each product and improving the quality of each product at the same time.



IoT in the agricultural sector has multi-faceted benefits for the farmers and as well as the consumers. With IoT, accurate information is garnered about the health of the crops and soil, and the farmer is able to take necessary action to improve these conditions. The direct result is the higher yield and quality of the crop. With this necessary conditioning, the farmer will be able to produce better from his land than ever before.



For consumers all around the world, this is indeed a great utility of IoT. The higher yield, farmers will sell larger quantities of their produce, thereby reaching more houses and bringing food to many more tables. The other advantage is that with the better quality of their yield, the product will carry healthier nutrients.

These are some of the applications of IoT which have already been rolled out. With further research, many more uses of IoT will be identified which will improve the quality of life.
