What is IoT or the Internet of Things?
Below is the video transcript.
Greetings, This is Mark Waterman, Director of Design at JADAK.
Perhaps you’ve heard the term IOT or The Internet of Things but wasn’t sure what it meant.
Wikipedia states… The Internet of Things is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data.
Ok, but what are these things?
A great example are smart phones, utilizing the World Wide Web to send emails, texts, images, and other attachments, they share data via the Internet or any other accessible network. More and more devices, machines and electronics, originally designed to sense, monitor, and collect data are also being manufactured with the ability to share content via the Internet. Data as they say is King.
It’s predicted that there will be nearly 26 to 30 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020. That’s a lot of things for sure.
Healthcare has a serious agenda for standardizing, integrating, and securely sharing medical data. The Health Information Exchange (HIE) is a major nationwide health information technology network being developed to do just that. As a result more and more medical devices, health equipment and other supporting healthcare systems are being designed to have access to the Internet and other networks in order to share their vital information.
This specific medical network is what JADAK calls the Healthcare Internet of Things…
Data creation often starts with a sensor. Just like it sounds sensors are devices comparable to our 5 senses of Taste, Touch, Smell, Hearing and Sight. But the saying goes, a picture a worth a thousand words and the camera is the king of sensors. At JADAK we use cameras to allow machines to see, process and share data, that’s called medical machine vision and we’ve been leading experts at it for over 15 years. With a complete selection of cameras, fixed mount and handheld imager platforms, combined with extensive engineering capabilities, JADAK provides healthcare customers solutions to any scanning, inspection and tracking challenges.
Visionary Thinking… these are the words that drive the products that JADAK manufactures and the solutions that we engineer for our customers.
