"IoT" - Internet of Things

Updated: Feb 29, 2020

The Internet is an incredible system/ dimension today. A buzzword which has now alarmed every industry is “IoT” - Internet of things. Be it in any field, from healthcare, supply chain, to manufacturing, the internet has driven the way how we all think, work, and play!

What is Internet of Things exactly?

In simple terms, IoT is used to describe devices connected through the internet. The interconnection between devices allows systems of networks to transfer, and access data freely among each other. These connected devices are called “Smart Devices” - which we've all being introduced to by now, and also used on a daily basis. Some real-life examples of IoT are:

  • Using smartphones to turn on and off electronic devices like TV’s, AC’s, Google Home

  • Digital Health Monitoring

  • Automated Inventory Checking

  • Tracking of vehicles (GPS)

IOT Testing

The IoT is evolving at an exponential rate so quality of the IoT products cannot be simply compromised. The users of IOT technology will always demand for flawless, smooth and uninterrupted workflow. It is always a challenge to develop an optimized software. Organizations who test IoT products are bound to have an edge in coming future in software industry. Testing IoT products needs to have a strong Quality Assurance Strategy. The testing environment should be an exact prototype of the production environment.

Important aspects of maintaining a good quality testing at all levels when testing IoT products includes:

  1. Powerful Test Strategy

  2. Compatibility Testing

  3. Interoperability Testing

  4. Usability Testing

  5. Security Testing

  6. Integration Testing

  7. Automation Testing

Impact of IOT in Oil and Gas Industry

IoT has a big portion in industrial field. Many organisations have come up with remote solutions which help industries to make informed decisions using strong data monitoring, reporting and analytics.In Oil and Gas industry, the sites are always far making it difficult for personnel to reach. With the help of IoT the industries can monitor the site data while sitting remotely in their corporate office. This reduces unnecessary trips to drilling pads, time and cost.

How IoT has reduced the manual overheads of Oil and Gas industry:

  1. Health and safety: The IoT applications monitor the operational parameters, alerts the user about performance degradation or abnormal/ out- of range changes.

  2. Technician Safety: The apps introduce data to the technician which help them know how to manage the assets safely.

  3. Operational Cost reduction: With the IoT, companies can reduce their labor costs by knowing where the personnel are required without unnecessary trips, providing optimized routes to save fuel, show service alerts of tanks based on data and not guesses.

  4. Data Analytics: The data analytics will help companies improve performance, personnel efficiency, map routing to increase drop size and send trucks on best routes.

Future of IOT

Data is increasing everyday, and adding computing power and intelligence to the connected devices will help to make faster decisions, for any organization, and industry. All or most of the processing of IoT devices is now done on cloud, due to limitation of storage and computing power. IoT will help us in learning new things, without even knowing what we want to achieve. The industries who are able to collect the right analytics at the perfect time and place will have an edge.
