There is much more to IoT than connectivity
The significance of IoT in fleet management and transportation sector overall can’t be overstated. Major Middle East markets like the UAE look to improve their transportation infrastructure, digitalization will drive the uptake of telematics, connected vehicles, data processing and analytics in the country and the entire region. There are so many IoT elements that make our transportation smart and they include connected vehicle, telematics solutions, intelligent traffic control systems, in-vehicle wi-fi connection and many more. How about integrating all these elements into one big network of connected things? By adding more and more connected devices and networks we are adding more data that can be processed, analyzed and they used to the benefits of improving overall city operations on the public and private levels.
While creating an intelligent IoT infrastructure will add value to every business’ bottom line and will increase their productivity and profitability tremendously, it can also positively contribute to a much more meaningful impact on a country-wide transportation sector. By connecting multiple devices thus allowing a secure flow of information, we can:
- Become more sustainable and reduce city pollution by dissolving traffic jams and diverting them from highly populated areas such as hospitals, residential blocks as well as schools and universities.
- Improve the overall operational efficiency of any fleet by predicting better travel routes and reducing road congestions.
- Increase emergency services’ response by allowing vehicles and intelligent road cameras to communicate better, channel information about accidents faster and even prevent them by alerting concerned parties about upcoming dangers and road complications.
The Internet of Things is here and information accessibility to the network is even more profound as homes, buildings, offices and even the whole city begins to connect to each other, providing a whole new experience of a connected world and a seamless virtual reality which can only be made possible through strong connectivity. Machines are getting smarter to enable faster and more efficient delivery of services.
