Iot Applications

IoT can be used in different organisations and can benefit those organizations by improving their data collection methods. Using real time or most up-to-date data, it can improve the way of using and accessing different hardware components including smart devices, and connect to the different online ICT technologies to increase the business value, efficiency and productivity of an organisation (Djahel, Doolan, Muntean, & Murphy, 2015). Acoustic sensor networks, used in various underwater and underground applications are increasingly becoming a part of IoT applications (X. Wang, Li, Zhen, & Zhang, 2016).

IoT services serve organisations by:
