IoT In The Startup Context

IOT (Internet Of Things)

We truly live in a world where easy access via interconnected ‘things’ are creating new opportunities.

Interconnected ‘things’ – big and small have taken over our lives – home, office and city streets – all have become smarter than ever. Extending the internet connectivity beyond standard devices, IoT connects things that you would never think possible. These devices can communicate and interact, these communications can be remotely controlled too. Every device talks to every other device and creates an automated environment. The entire system generates usable data for users and businesses.

IOT & startups – some practical implementations in today’s world

Some of the devices that can be connected are smart TVs, smart speakers, toys, wearables and other smart appliances. Smart city technologies such as those used to monitor traffic and weather conditions are examples of other IoT implementations.

IoT and smart homes

IoT implementations include interconnected devices that simplify living. When a car approaches, it automatically communicates with the sensor on the garage door and the door opens for parking, the thermostat or AC at home is set to the preferred temperature and the lights are turned on and home is as cozy as it could get before you enter!

IoT and the smart enterprise

Employees can locate conference rooms and schedule meetings with the help of sensors located in the rooms to convey whether it is empty or occupied. Before a meeting these sensors can also adjust the temperature in the room and turn on the lights.

IoT in industries

On the plant floor, an assembly line machine fitted with sensors provides data to the plant operator informing the operator when the parts need to be replaced. This helps prevent downtime in industries.

Implementation of IoT has several challenges including security, interoperability, processing capabilities, scalability and availability.

Role Of UI In UX

Role Of UI In UX

Many times, it’s not about how we say things, but how people understand (or perceive) what we are saying. That’s what makes one business different from the other. The key factor for brand communication is the company’s product or website. The best products have two things – features and details. The features attract customers and the details keep them. The UI (user interface) design ensures that the product has all the features necessary to grab attention and all the details necessary to engage customers enough to retain them. Essential the UI and the detailed features ensure a great UX (User Experience).

So, what role does UI play in UX?

  • Well-designed UI makes the digital product intuitive and easy.
  • Makes the product unique and inviting.
  • A good UI design not only gives aesthetic appeal to the product, but also enables it to operate seamlessly.
  • It enables customers to perform tasks effortlessly and logically.
  • It helps in your business’ branding efforts and aids in all your marketing efforts too.
  • UI is also typically responsible for creating a cohesive style throughout the app and ensuring that a consistent design language is applied across the product.
  • Maintaining consistency in visual elements and defining behavior such as how to display error or warning states fall under the purview of a UI design too.
  • It’s the overall impact that a product manages to create in the minds of customers!

There is a thin line between UI and UX – and one cannot be separated from the other. User acceptance and adoption are critical to having a successful product – that is why designing the user interface with care is of utmost importance. It is not just about how it looks, it’s about how it functions and how much impact it can create on the minds of customers.
