2019 IOT trends and forecasts – What next?


Technology is part of our lives. AI and IoT track organizations and consumers want clever city convenience with the assurance that their data is secure. So, what are these technologies anticipated in 2019?

Cambridge, a UK – based technology company Arm has commissioned the Northstar research company to survey 2000 global consumers.

They wanted to find out how consumers understand the technological trends of 2018 and their expectations for 2019.

They also asked their technology experts and futurists what they believe will happen next year and beyond in IoT technology. The forecasts cover IoT in smart homes, personalized delivery, health care and smart cities and buildings.

The adoption of technology is widespread and widespread and the adoption of smart technology is growing.

Two of the three survey respondents (66 percent) said that technology was “more part of my life “in 2018. Only 3% said it was’ less important ‘ a year ago.

Improvements in the availability and quality of intelligent technology products will drive this holiday season a credit card spree.

More than half of respondents to the survey (54 percent) said they expected to spend more on technology – based donations. Almost one in five (18 percent) said they would spend “much more than last year” and another 36 percent said they would spend “a little more.”

The respondents also anticipated that AI would spread rapidly over the next 12 months, with nine out of 10 (92 percent) people expecting AI to be more widespread than it is today.

The convenience of intelligent technology is the main reason for the technology to be “loved” (26%) or “like ” (37%). One in five people appreciated what the technology did for their experience in the city.

About 15 percent of respondents said that they had chosen’ life quality,’ and one in 10 (11 percent) said that they felt that an intelligent technology upgrade was the’ modern / progressive ‘ thing.

However, the respondents were divided as to whether companies are serious about improving data security and privacy. Fewer than 10 percent believe that companies make no effort at all, but the majority of respondents (70 percent) want this effort to increase in the future.


Expect an update in the availability of IoT home products as intelligent home becomes the mainstream. The expansion of intelligent home products for consumers of major household brands will outperform leading consumer brands.

Automation and efficiency are integrated into daily tasks and include lighting, irrigation, heating, cooling and other processes in the home.


Increasing flexibility will be included in the delivery options to personalize the experience. GPS positioning data smartphones and the visibility and tracking of assets using low – cost sensors could enable customers to be delivered anywhere, not just at hardcoded locations such as a home or office.

The deployment of sensors and better connectivity in hospitals means that hospital staffs have real – time visibility where their equipment and orders are located.


This ensures better healthcare quality for patients and reduces the time required to find critical medical equipment.


Intelligent towns will evolve from providing only cost – reduction benefits such as LED lights or better waste management to better citizen engagement and income streaming.

This could include red light detection, WI – Fi hotspot, 5 G services, intelligent towers, detection and analysis of crime and transmission of information. These developments can be achieved using technologies such as machine learning (ML) and image recognition.

Optimized heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and more efficient lighting will benefit energy – efficient buildings. Intelligent buildings are increasingly moving towards space optimization, object detection for security, security, tracking and asset tracking, using advanced technologies such as location services, image vision and ML.
