Reading time ( words)
Agile IoT is connecting us swiftly. Every day, every hour, every minute, devices are becoming connected. The Internet of Things (IoT) has gone from a buzzword floating through the echoes of Silicon Valley to a tangible and quickly advancing movement in the world of hardware. But, the effects of the Internet of Things are quickly rippling outward, causing immense changes to the environment surrounding it. And, as it turns out, the IoT revolution is forcing vast changes to companies who want to play in this valiant new world – and those companies are numerous.
The term agile manufacturing is often interpreted differently from the various stakeholders or experts managing production systems. To some extent machine and mechanical setups could be made agile by increasing the number of combinatory sets of mechanical, electrical and software parameters a machine can have. This should make the machine adaptable to many needs and many types of end products. However, agility could also be approached in making the production system as modular as possible, with independent and intelligent components or units cooperating with each other, to create the large number of combinatory configurations. The manufacturing setup is meant to be reusable, smart, and could be shared by many production processes at the same time.
According to a recent study report published by the Market Research Future, the global market of Agile IoT has witnessed an upsurge growth in recent years. The Agile IoT market is growing rapidly over 20.9% of CAGR and is expected to reach at USD ~199.90 billion by the end of forecast period (2017 – 2023). MRFR Analysis indicates that the agile IoT have various components including wearable for self-tracking, open air crop and livestock monitoring using drones, to smart retail solutions for enhanced shopping experiences is a key driver for Agile IoT market. The Agile IoT is a win-win solution and it creates an open, shared, flexible IoT platform that consists of software and hardware gateways that are various sectors.
The factors contributing to the growth of the agile IoT market are: - the semiconductor industry that has been able to weather the fallout from the global financial crisis and realize several years of healthy growth - in part because of the widespread adoption of smartphones and tablets, which created demand for mobile and wireless applications. The industry's average annual growth rate between 2010 and 2013 was about 5 percent. The IoT@Work architecture follows a layered pattern. The layers are defined as abstractions and function groups managing the IoT infrastructure at the lowest layer, i.e. devices and networks, and the IoT applications running on top. In between these two, the function groups include management and orchestration functions that deal with configuration and execution of applications on top of resources and services offered in the IoT infrastructure.
