The world was in awe as Jesse W. Reno patented the first working escalator in 1892, calling it, “endless conveyor or elevator,” one of the first steps taken towards automating daily tasks for greater convenience. Although the genesis of the concept dates back to the industrial revolution, they served as the building blocks for the research and development in automation. In the 21st century, automation is seen across a broad spectrum of applications and use cases, Internet of Things (IoT) being one of the most prevalent and widely pursued genres of automation. Today, IoT has made escalators smarter and more power efficient with motion and proximity sensors, a thought-worthy example of how the technology has evolved over the years since its conceptualization.
Prepped as a technology of the future, IoT has witnessed a stable growth, in Europe and global markets, maintaining a consistent 3 percent growth annually. The premise of optimized workflows has leapfrogged industrial efficiencies and time-to-market intervals by a considerable amount, prompting technology connoisseurs to pursue research and development in the field of IoT. Right so, IoT technology is seen as a Skunkworks initiative or as a part of the flagship offering in most organizations; a stride aligns them in line with the growing trends in the technology space.
