In my previous post, we learned that Internet of Things (IoT) devices are intelligent sensors and actuators that can connect to the Internet and interact with other intelligent, connected devices. All of these devices will generate a large amount of raw data that must be processed in order to be turned into actionable insight. That means there must be software behind the connected devices in order to make them useful.
We live in a hyper-connected world in which evolving smart technology linked across the Internet can manage our daily actively remotely. Where once you actually had to be home to adjust the lighting, you can now turn lights on and off remotely from a mobile device.
Virtual reality (VR) design tools have been growing in importance by bringing new levels of reality to the design process. For designers and healthcare facility owners, VR offers an immersive spatial experience of work-in-progress. Facility owners, especially, can experience space planning in ways not possible with 2D drawings, giving them more information in decision-making.
