How Can Internet of Things Help Combat Corona Virus?
Internet of Things Value proposition in which IoT technologies are fundamentally strong; We can summarize the data received from real-time sensors to the central platforms. In this sense, it would not be contradictory to think that internet technologies of objects will detect and prevent outbreaks like COVID-19.
In his article in the Pravinraj Panicker medium, he mentions that IoT Technologies can detect environments in which the Corona Virus lives and spreads. Article; “It can be a simple thing to detect an environment that can be very favorable for the development of such a virus.
The new Corona Virus has been found to develop at lower temperatures and low humidity environments. Therefore, if environmental conditions in a public place are monitored by IoT sensors, such as those described in this article, IoT sensors / solutions can be programmed and trigger the alarm or automatically change the air conditioning parameters to detect such dangerous zones in the work environment. ” continues as.
At the same time, it is mentioned in the article that the causes of diseases such as corona virus can be detected with Bio-IoT sensors as a future prediction. Alcohol detection devices used in places such as airports will be able to detect infectious diseases such as corona, sars, etc. in the future.
Frost & Sullivan IoT Can Be Key Technology For Stopping Corona Virus
Frost & Sullivan IoT Can Be Key Technology in Corona Virus Prevention
Interview with Pierre Bourque’s Blockchain Radio, Frost & Sullivan IoT Global Research Director Dilip Sarangan; IoT can help by providing an early warning system to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. The fact that any passengers coming from domestic and international airports have a scanner can be of great benefit in terms of determining if passengers have high temperatures or symptoms.
Over the past few years, there has been a lot of pressure to move IoT’s data analysis capabilities from the cloud to the end devices (on the devices themselves). This real-time knowledge and intelligence can detect infected people very quickly to avoid quarantine and spread the coronavirus.
Sarage that; It will be able to detect and prevent environments where viruses come to life with the wide range of sensor networks created by companies, cities and countries.
The first step in detecting and preventing viruses is the development of Bio-IoT sensors. In addition, China can find people with extensive video surveillance solutions, so that with the support of image processing and artificial intelligence technologies, it can find people with anomaly symptoms, track them, and perform their studies to isolate and isolate their domains with absolute accuracy.
Movements and body temperatures of people who have been in contact with Corona Virus can be detected by cameras and thermal sensors in crowded environments such as airports, public transportation vehicles. These data will be processed with data analytics and artificial intelligence owned by the platforms. This can give precise results for early warning and domain detection for management centers.
What Can 5G Do In The Fight Against Corona Virus?
In the fight against Corona Virus, 5G technologies will be of key importance in the continuation of sectoral workflows in preventing the spread of the disease.
When 5G features and scenarios are examined, we will see that 5G supports broadband data transmission with low data delay and too many sensors in small areas.
5G – Distance Education
Thanks to the high speed it provides, 5G can transmit course contents to the servers of educational institutions to a large number of students connected at the same time, gathering students together in a virtual classroom, enabling interactive questions to be asked and answered. Distance education applications will enrich technologies such as AR / VR with 5G. This will ensure that students’ learning and development processes are not interrupted.
5G – Remote Business Meetings
Many companies in the world and in our country have stopped their office work in order to protect the health of their employees and eliminate their concerns, and suggested that their employees continue their business with a remote connection. This will put stress infrastructure, VPN infrastructure and capacity, etc. into stress test, with thousands of employees trying to access remote points over the same connection at the same time.
With the effects of Corona Virus (Coronavirus COVID-19), remote business meetings accelerated the digital transformation and mobile working processes of companies.
The use of remote connection business applications such as WeChat Work, Microsoft Teams, Cisco WebEx or Alibaba’s DingTalk has increased by 13% since the detection of the virus. However, if the effect of the virus continues, it is estimated that the increase will double the predictions.
The interaction of ecosystem-based objects with the proliferation of internet-based solutions and data that seem to be independent from each other will provide opportunities to prevent such crises.
