The Future of M2M Technology & Opportunities

The Future Of The Emerging M2M

Here at CloudTweaks, most of our coverage is centered around the growing number of exciting and interconnected emerging markets. Wearable, IoT, M2M, Mobile and Cloud computing to name a few. Over the past couple of weeks we’ve talked about Machine to Machine (M2M) such as the differences between IoT and M2M as well as the The Job Future of M2M. And today we will look a little bit further into the opportunities available.

But first, here is a tremendous and well crafted visual produced by the group at ImperialTechForesight from Insect Burger Food Vans to Smart Dust Sensor Networks.

The future of this technology will depend in large part on the advances that are made in the next few years. However, there are many industries which will benefit from having this technology and will expand to exploit it more readily.

HealthCare

This may be the industry that is most affected by M2M for a couple of reasons. Currently, this technology is being used in very creative ways, including having sensors for patients (which we will be discussing in the next day or two) who are vulnerable to having a heart attack. The sensor can detect the signs of an impending cardiac arrest and contact emergency medical services.

In addition, the aging baby boomer population is creating a wealth of new jobs in the health care industry. This massive growth combined with the advancing technology of M2M will means far more opportunities for the jobs related to M2M in the future.

Consumer

Another area where M2M will have a great impact is in the consumer industry where the concepts found in many science fiction films are now becoming reality. When your refrigerator detects that you are low on certain foods and beverages, it will contact your local supermarket and order what is needed and then pay for it using a credit or debit card number.

This type of system can be used with any products that are consumed or used in the home and need to be replaced. The consumer can control the ordering process by having restrictions placed, but the convenience is a great advantage. There will be a growing market of jobs in the M2M field when it comes to consumer-related goods and services.

Indoor Environmental Monitoring

The HVAC industry may soon undergo another revolution that is on par with the introduction of air conditioning to the home. However, the use of M2M will expand beyond just HVAC and involve all the energy applications found within commercial buildings, facilities and perhaps residential homes as well. Recently, Google I/O experimented at the San Francisco Moscone Center by placing over 4,000 environmental sensors that monitored the temperature, air quality, pressure, motion, light and level of noise all through the conference that they held in the structure. The result was a very strong gain in energy efficiency that improving technology will only capitalize on in the near future.

The heavy service based industries for example have relied on field personnel to make troubleshooting visits that can now be replaced with M2M technology that not only senses what adjustments to make, but offers early indications of what machinery may break down so it can be addressed before a major breakdown occurs. Here, those in the HVAC industry along with electricians will gain considerably through the use of this technology.
