Love Process Automation? Six Areas you can Automate to Make Life Easier

October 28, 2014

Whether it’s accounts payable automation or workflow automation, those who use enterprise content management systems are already familiar with the benefits of automation. The industry is growing and reaching more businesses and consumers. Internet of Things devices are expected to account for 9 billion connections by 2018, according to BI Intelligence estimates.

Here are six areas where automated processes could make your life easier, both in and out of the office.

Internet of Things at Home

Everyday home objects from refrigerators to lamps are being connected to the Internet. Home entertainment system can also be automated. For example, televisions, audio systems and lighting can be programmed and adjusted to fit a homeowner’s needs. A special egg carton will even remind shoppers when it is time to buy more eggs.

On the Road

Autonomous vehicles could make up a significant portion of road traffic in the future. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has created a policy that includes recommendations about the regulation and licensing of autonomous vehicles. The Internet of Things can help drivers themselves, too. Sensors in parking facilities can be used to help drivers learn when parking spots are available and sensors in buses are being used to help improve maintenance.

Security

Security is at the forefront of consumers’ minds. For example, consumers were more willing to pay for a smart smoke alarm than a smart refrigerator, according to a report by Acquity. Security cameras allow for the monitoring of property through a smartphone. Phones can also be used to lock and unlock doors.

The elderly in particular can benefit from the security features of home automation. For example, seniors can receive help with the push of a button and be connected to emergency help. Seniors could also use the security cameras to check who is at a door without having to get up and check.

Health care 

The health care industry is one area that could benefit from automation. For example, automating patient data collection and analysis can save doctors’ timePill bottles can tell patients when they miss a dose by either glowing or sending them a text message. Heart implant defibrillators can send information to a doctor if it has wireless capability.

Sports

Internet-connected sensors are also being used for sports. One company has made devices that attach to baseball bats and can measure the bat’s swing speed and the angle. The company’s CEO told Computerworld he believes that one-day sports sensors will be everywhere and provide a stream of information for coaches and athletes. Other researchers are hoping to use sensors to alert coaches or parents when an athlete receives a concussion.

Travel

Travelers could one day benefit from security lines that tell travelers how long the wait is and from an auto-rebooking system that determine if a traveler will miss their flight based on their GPS, thanks to the ability to be connected to the Internet. For example, at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, a system monitors Wi-Fi connected devices to measure how long it takes for a device to move through security. A screen with wait times is posted near the security checkpoint. The data doesn’t just help travelers move through the line faster, the information can help airlines and the Transportation Security Administration to decrease wait times.
