IoT for Environmental Sustainability everything from monitoring levels of ozone to monitoring national roads for level of dust and forests for air pollution
Although the technology Internet of Things or IoT is relatively new and still in development phases, the impact that it is having on our society is already evident. IoT has taken almost every industry by storm. From business to communication and from healthcare to music every industry is being affected by IoT in one way or the other.
However, one of the most interesting use of this technology that is still under consideration and early development phases by the experts is how we can use IoT to create a more sustainable environment. This technology has a great potential to help us in making our environment more sustainable and help us in our fight against pollution all across the globe.
Using IoT environment sensors for various applications can take an otherwise highly labor-intensive process and make it simple and efficient. It involves everything from monitoring levels of ozone to monitoring national roads for level of dust and forests for air pollution.
The applications of IoT in environmental monitoring are broad − environmental protection, extreme weather monitoring, water safety, endangered species protection, commercial farming, and more. In these applications, sensors detect and measure every type of environmental change.
Current monitoring technology for air and water safety primarily uses manual labor along with advanced instruments, and lab processing. IoT improves on this technology by reducing the need for human labor, allowing frequent sampling, increasing the range of sampling and monitoring, allowing sophisticated testing on-site, and binding response efforts to detection systems. This allows us to prevent substantial contamination and related disasters.
