03. ICT Application
While the Internet of Things (IoT) market is growing rapidly, miniaturization, low power, and lightening of handsets are essential to take a leap forward, and the introduction of the Internet of Things is a trend that cannot be ignored. So far, the Internet of Things has not been compulsory, but from now on, it would be difficult to live without the Internet of Things.
Until now, if we have put a rather abstract emphasis on the importance of the Internet of Things, we need to think about how the Internet of Things will improve the value to companies, society, and individuals in detail and spread it in the future.
IoT sensors are developing into simplification, ultra-miniaturization, and low power, while sensors are not only collecting information, but also evolving into smart sensors that have modules which contain functions such as processing/analysis/auto-calibration/decision-making. Also, micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) technology for miniaturization of sensors and SoC technology for modularization are being applied.
As IoT devices are being developed from single sensor module to complex sensor module and from complex sensor module to ONE-CHIP complex sensor, it will be able to conveniently implement many functions in one small IoT device because efforts to make them smaller and low-power, lighter have been continued at the same time.
04. Smart farms
By using technologies such as Internet of Things, big data, and artificial intelligence, we can properly maintain and manage the growth environment of crops, livestock, and fisheries products, and manage them remotely using PCs and smartphones resulting that enhance production efficiency as well as convenience.
1st Generation Smart Farm
- Farm digitalization enables remote monitoring and control over the Internet, which greatly improves convenience
- Setting up and control of farming environment still depends on human knowledge and experience.
2nd Generation Smart Farm
- Developed for the purpose of applying to medium and large-scale greenhouses, which occupies more than 95% of Korean greenhouses.
- It is a decision-making supporting system for optimal production through big data such as artificial intelligence and biometric information of plants and animals.
- Reduce costs and increase productivity by utilizing cloud systems instead of individually having high-performance computer systems
