Internet of Things: The Next Engineering Revolution Will Take Place This Year

In the upcoming time, each and everything will be connected. Juniper study anticipated that by 2020, there will be almost 36 billion connected devices. It’s not that they’re totally mutually exclusive; you can merely use your telephone to govern everything.

The Internet of Things has been named the next Engineering Revolution. It will change the manner of all trades, managements, and consumers.

Now that the Internet of Things appears to be firmly implanted in our lives, 2016 may be that revolutionary year when it segues from the “gee whiz” field into practical, daily application, along with all that involves in regard to progress, policy, and principles.

Below are some likelihoods for the “Internet of Things” as it grows up in 2016.


The same solid science that is improving the sort of the electric car will enhance the timing of battery for connected devices. This is a pretty significant development, and will represent a higher number of wireless IP-based devices.

I am also forestalling the emergence of more natural dealings b/w people and “things” in the upcoming year, making devices more practical through voice control and social interplay. This will make “thing” interactions that show less resistance between people and technology, which is a requirement on the march toward IOT ubiquity.

One tacky development that may rise next year alarms the IOT and micro drones, as I understand smaller personal drones will start to appear in 2016. With these fresh IOT devices, people will start to record, share and store the “droneable” seconds of their lives.

Tacky Development

Other people’s secrecy will be of major concern; however will not stop to spread. Videos will be taken and analyzed to create illegal data that’s cross-referenced with concurrent or near-concurrent contextual actions.

Defining who controls all that information and what is done with that information will lead us down some thought-provoking paths; discussions about our current selfie-craze and over-sharing on social media will pale by contrast.

Privacy concerns will come to the frontage as big players around the world enhance their supply of IOT data-gathering devices and services. Authorized jurisdictions will start to carry out more rules that are more satisfactory to the protection of consumer privacy by limiting where and how data can be mined, moved, examined and traded. We won’t be astonished to see a few class activities or criminal trial actions stemming from these matters.

Forlornly, privacy and security catastrophes by numerous large IOT providers in the New Year will be promoters for this augmented awareness. IOT devices, networks, and set-up are already objectives for wicked threat actors, however, the New Year will be marked by at least a few melodramatic IOT hacks.

As the IOT grows in industries like transportation and healthcare, for instance, policies about privacy and security will become a much more persistent concern. 2016 may be the year in which extensive foundational legal and managerial protocols are placed for the IOT.


In 2016, an endorsing authority will start to form so that some level of faith can be converted and conveyed to lift consumer confidence as they “hire” fresh IOT devices in their breaths. These authorities will most probably employ an easy-to-understand confidence emblem certifying that devices obey with a minimum level of safety and data protection.

And nevertheless, two more new communications “standards” will arise next year. Both will pursue to gain worldwide recognition as “THE” standard for connectivity among things, people, and processes; however it’s hard to estimate at this point whether either of them will really fit the bill.


The IOT is not a rebellion in technology, but rather an evolution. Meaning, “things” will continue to progress in accordance with human philosophies about their uses and application. Presently, there is too much uproar for the mass market to really comprehend IOT and the value it can carry to their daily lives.

That confusion is amplified by the variety of non-interoperable yields put out side-by-side on store shelves, and the deficiency of a leading standard. There is still a long way to go before we can ponder the IOT “mature.” However 2016 may be the year we get our first real preview of what a full-grown IOT will appear, and it’s coming along attractively.
