Internet of Things projects now in this session well be talking about the top seven projects which are outstanding themselves in the Internet of Things domain.
Internet of Things?
Internet of Things basically is a concept or a technology which aims to connect all the devices to the Internet and help them communicate with each other using the Internet as a medium. Now, these devices can be anything it could be a TV, it could be a mobile phone, it could be a watch, even your car as such anything that can be connected to the Internet can be considered as a device for an Internet of Things. The intention of using the Internet as a medium of communication is to help you achieve a wider and a greater reach with respect to these devices. Again the end aim of the Internet of Things is to help you create a smart world that's out there. Now, let's talk about each of these projects.
Now a biometric system is something that we always encounter on our daily basis as well because we always either use a fingerprint sensor or we use an iris scanning so it depends from organization to organization. But how does this actually work the system there? Let's take in case of this example has a fingerprint scanner, now the first time that I am presenting my fingerprint it scans the fingerprint and considers this as part of an enrollment process from this fingerprint template.
Would it do? Is that it extracts certain key features which make different from others and stores it into a database from then forward every time that I placed my finger on top of this fingerprint scanner. It creates a template and compares this with all the templates that present in the database if it matches. Then correspondingly let's say gives me an attendance or lets me access a tour if it does not then it raises an alert with respect to that same.
Now, this is just a foundation, as said this biometric system can be the fingerprint. It can be is canny or it can be a combination of both as well voice recognition system is one of the key products in the biometric domain.
Smart Irrigation System
This is something that would really make my life easier through a smart irrigation system. What does it do? Is that it checks the moisture present in the environment or in the water lines that are created? Now to help you understand how it works usually there is two main Internet of Things devices that is used here which is the Adreno board and the Raspberry Pi. Raspberry Pi becomes the main processing unit and Adreno board is placed for each of my water channels. These addressing modes themselves are connected to multiple sensors which are part of this water channel. So what these sensors do is that? They check the moisture present in these lanes as such so.
Let's say a specific link does not meet the minimum required moisture then what it would do is that it would send a signal to the Raspberry Pi again all these devices are connected on the same wireless router network and the Raspberry Pi would identify the lack of moisture and pass a signal to the relay. The relay, in turn, would initiate the water pump and water would be parked. Now in order to ensure that water is not wasted, we would create gate controls and only the gate where the moisture is less, would the gate be open once?
My sensor detects that the moisture level has gone beyond my required limit it would again say another signal to the Raspberry Pi asking it to stop the pump as well. So this, in turn, helps you to save a lot of water and also makes your life quite easier as well. So after this, your only task in your garden would be either setting up new plans or creating new water channels.
Security Camera and Door Unlock System
In order to identify whether to let the user opens the door or not now an evolution to this is that, if it does not find the photo of that person it can notify the concern that so and so person is trying to access this door would you like to authorize this person and add his information to the database or would you like to deny the access to this person as well. Usually, this is used in areas where you have highly sensitive information stored. In order to maintain a strict control to the access to this information as well as another usage of the security camera and/or unlock system can be even at our homes. When we can identify whos come at our home when we're not there and either decide to give them access to our homes or not now.
Smart Home System
A smart home system can be something that really makes our life quite easy. Starting from energy management where the light control system is the AC, the appliances that we use the thermostat, all this is managed in short trying to cut down the power consumption. That's taking place my door management system is also part of this, my security system is also part of this, my water management system again becomes a part of this, Asma again these are key things that really stands out in the smart home system.
But again what I would personally recommend is that a smart homes limitations are where our imagination stops anything that you wish to automate or may wish to make your life easier can be part of a smartphone system. As well now a smart home usually is going to be a base for our next project which is a smart city.
A smart city is an evolution of a smart home. Here it is not just the sensors of a single home that is connected. Here its correlation or a network or a connection between various organizations, various domains as well as various segments of that city as a whole. As such here the life of every single dependent person in that city becomes easier as a whole as well and in turn will really help develop that city to greater extends. As such now the key factor here for a smart city is government support as well and if governments are really willing to take this step then I hope we would see a smart city completely built on the Internet of Things, Maybe the next five to ten years as well.
Zelda Ocarina Controlled Home Automation
The next is something that really stands out on a personal level this is Zelda Ocarina controlled home automation system this is personally something that I feel the closest to a smart home system. Well, most of the elements of the hoop are completely controlled by an ocarina what Alan pan has done here is that he has created a node-based recognition system which completely automates his hope. But rather than telling more about this, let us just look at a quick video which will give you a glimpse into how he has done this and what has he done next on our list at number one.
If you've not already guessed what is Jarvis? It is the artificial intelligence system that Facebook's creator Marc second burg has built for his home automated system. You've already seen the video of Mark Zuckerberg interacting with Jarvis which has MorgFreeman's voice and if you have, not here is a quick glimpse into the same good morning Jarvis video. I have started building a simple AI to help run our home I talked to Jarvis using this app and built it uses artificial intelligence to understand me and figure out. It could recognize people at the gate, let them in automatically and then just tell me about it mark your parents are coming in.
