Smart cities utilize emerging and evolving technologies to assist cities in acquiring advantages through technical innovation. When finding solutions to the problems that accompany technological innovation, the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming increasingly important in implementing smart solutions.
Forming the next evolution of the Internet—the Metaverse is the concept of a fully immersive and universal virtual space for multi-user interaction, collaboration, and socializing. This concept of a blended shared space, whereby users can interact with each other in physical/virtual environments and extended reality (XR) in a seamless, immersive, and interactive way, has drawn enormous attention in both industry and academia.
Generative AI enables users to generate new content based on various inputs (including text, images, sounds, animation, 3D models, or other data types). By using neural network technology to identify the patterns and structures within existing data, generative AI creates new and original content. The technology can be a powerful tool for streamlining the workflow of creatives, engineers, researchers, scientists, and others—across all industries.
5G is transforming telecommunication networks and stimulating innovation across different sectors. 5G wireless networks can provide very high data rates and excellent coverage with increased capacity, better quality, and low latency.
Research suggests the IoT will enable us to overcome one of the greatest challenges we face in the Metaverse—how to map data from real life, in real time, into a digital reality.
With the development of both present and future technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions offer many potential benefits to today’s world, especially in healthcare. Currently, there is a high demand for low-cost solutions in connected healthcare and real-time wireless patient monitoring remotely.
