California, October 20Connected living, a concept that has emerged from the Internet of Things (IoT), is rapidly affecting all individuals. Innovations in information and communication technologies (ICT) are ensuring seamless connectivity, thus laying the foundation for connected living. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Technology Innovations Impacting Connected Living provides an overview of the major drivers, benefits, challenges, and adoption for the following connected living applications:

  • Connected home
  • Connected vehicle
  • Connected individual
  • Connected healthcare
  • Connected workplace
While connected individuals, vehicles and workplaces will benefit the younger generation, connected healthcare and homes can cater to the aged. Technology developers must consider these distinctions when designing products and solutions targeted at connected living. "Wireless communication and cloud computing form the basis of any connected living deployment," said TechVision Senior Research Analyst Sumit Kumar Pal. "The delivery of critical computing resources such as storage and applications, to workforces and homes is substantially increasing the number of connected people." The rising interest in wearable electronics is lending momentum to the connected healthcare sector. Meanwhile, sensor fusion technologies, which enable higher accuracy, are finding uses in location tracking and health monitoring. The employment of energy harvesting techniques to support various devices is also a critical success factor. Furthermore, collaboration among stakeholders from various parts of the value chain in the sensor, microelectronics and ICT industries will help seamlessly deliver the connected living experience to consumers. "In the near to mid-term, connected living will gain traction primarily in developed nations, where cost is not a significant factor," noted Pal. "The advent of low-cost devices and ubiquitous Internet connectivity will gradually encourage adoption and validate the vision of a perpetually connected world."
