Moving IoT devices fast-forwards because of the rapid adoption and implementation of IoT sensors and smart devices in various industries. Sensors become smaller every day, cheaper and they drain less power and have more computer horsepower. Also, the capital investment for enterprise IoT become very minimal. IoT devices are everywhere, from the traffic light helping to minimize traffic congestion to the monitor your vital health signs. Sensors are pervasive in your everyday lifestyle.

The more IoT enables devices available to raise the need for more data storage, and the more significant storage space become raised another demand for Cloud computing, thus result in  Bigdata. Thus provide the basic recipe for insight and data analytics and lead in systematic decision making (AI system), which will give a tremendous value from those collected data. (Mann, 2015)

With all these collected data drive the technology and the analytical methods that can be applied to streaming data for IoT device, data in motion. Thus result to automation for all of our life aspect, which will lead eventually to business to monetize the IoT

With all mentioned capability at hand, new industries are born and starting to investigate opportunities for deploying sensors to manage the performance of processes or machinery better, as well as to track the behavior of peoples and anticipate their needs and aims.

One thing is certain the IoT era is inevitable

there are as many as 24 billion or more activated IoT devices by the year 2020—a staggering number of 200% growth figure 2.1. (First, 2017)

One thing is certain the IoT era is inevitable. Wherever it goes, it will get there faster.

The strength of IoT devices lies in their ability to communicate with each other. The more you have on a net, the more complex tasks they can achieve by combining their functions. If your smart car can warn you about the weather and auto-drive you to work, that’s great.  With a mixture of IoT data streams and Bigdata analytic make things get smarter every day.

Below is an excellent example of implementing an adaptive synthetic sensor where it could recognize the environment around us, and send all these raw data to the computer to analyze and give feedback for that particular event. (Laput, 2017)
