The IoT widely gave way in France, thanks in particular to the spheres of influence of FrenchTech but especially to the know-how of our engineers and to the dynamism of young companies which ventured to take part by chance of the IoT. We find even an international dimension. But what about abroad? In India for example.
Young IoT companies which grow up fast
In India, the “buzz” around the IoT is rather quiet. No triumphant starting up for the local IoT, the majority of the companies of the sector are very young and still have things to prove to itself. However, the local ecosystem sets fast in maturity. Start-ups as CarIQ ( www.cariq.in ) managed to collect funds for its intelligent system for cars and should send its first copies by the end of June, 2015. Their promise? Predict the potential problems by car and help to solve them. Another company, Entrib ( www.entrib.com ) promises to revolutionize the productivity and the quality of the factory work for example, thanks to the IoT. Near(on the side of) the playful, there is TeeWe ( www.teewe.in ) of Bengaluru, who arrived on the avecun dongle market HDMI who helps to streamer any
Les efforts du gouvernement indien dans l’IoT
In 2014, the Indian government announced a plan to invest15 billion dollars in the IoT in India before 2020.
The plan predict :
– To create adapted jobs according to the necessary skills,
– To develop the R*D for these technologies
– To develop products IoT which India needs in various domains
With in particular outcasts’ large number of the banking system in India, because of financial means or of simple geographical distance, banks began to employ ” banking correspondents “, who can move in zones which are too much taken away from banks. Distributors and terminals of mobile payment develop also in parallel. With Africa, India is a part of countries which the most adopted the mobile payment.
Brakes in the development
What slows down the development of the IoT in India, it is especially the access to network, little reliable and expensive. Internet credit note is complicated. Also, the connected objects the price of which is still excessive in spite of the low cost of the micro-computer type Arduino’s open-source(type Arduino’s open-spring,chap Arduino’s open-source), Raspberry Pi. Whereas the hardware can be accessible at low level, the development of stable applications requires technical skills and workforce.
In term of safety also, it is still difficult to design connected objects without an important security budget, without a risk of losing data or of being pirated.
Certain products will have no success in India because are not simply adapted. The connected thermostats find use only in temperate countries, with variations of important season.
The IoT will have an impact on the market of the Indian employment. It will create opportunities in the jobs of the digital technology, with a greater need for software developers, but also the jobs around Big Data, analytics all these zones will be strengthened with the adoption of the IoT.
In India, the IoT could represent a key to improve the global quality of life of the Indians because the IoT concerns all the sectors, the health connected, in the improvement of factories and also in the environment of the mass-market retailing. With a more greater targeting of the market and a better service to the consumers, profits could be important.
As in all the developing countries, the IoT is an opportunity to realize infrastructures the most adapted to the energy transition and digital transition, upstream.
