IoT and Wearables: Rapidly Growing Market

The IoT and Wearables is becoming a new widely accepted market. In different ways Internet of Things (IoT) is Hardware counterpart of software “app” market and becoming a new way to explore creativity. Both Entrepreneur and corporations can leverage the existing internet infrastructure to build business using technology.  Wearable technology is one of cause of IoT’s popularity. There are many different factors need to consider while designing smart wearable product like power, form factor and secure wireless connectivity and also need to make sure of economical and effective means of manufacturing.

Wearable Design: In everyday life whether its health, fitness, learning or just playing can make your life better and this could be possible by using sensors. Sensors and wearables can allows physiological monitoring of any person’s physical parameters such as surrounding and with the size of sensors which is reaching to micro levels makes it possible for wearable products to integrate into it.  There are couple of important factor which needs to take special care during designing of such wearable product life security, data leak, power related issues or maybe something related to security and malicious failure.

Technical Contribution:

There are several technical reason behind success of wearable market and one is obviously decreasing component cost from semiconductor industries makes it possible to create useful product using technology. There are some key semiconductor technologies available at reasonable cost

  • Sensors, These days sensor are getting at micro level with semiconductor technological advancement and these sensor are so precise to measure any parameter around us like movement, direction of movement, temperature, heartbeats and in fact humidity, pressure etc.
  • Most powerful and small compact size microcontroller which are available at very low cost makes most of controlling tasks.
  • Advance power management and low power technology extends battery life.
  • Innovation and advancement in wireless technology allow object to communicate with each other.

It’s been expecting that IoT will enable big opportunity for developers in wearable market to create value added product in business world.
