How to Capitalize on Telemetry Technology
Transmission of data from and control/analysis of remote device data is the purpose of telemetry technology. It may be best understood as an automated solution for collecting and measuring data, as well as controlling devices by sending commands from a control server to a remote device. Here are some of the common applications in which this technology is used and how it improves business.
Telemetry often serves as a bridge between computing devices and the internet, making it easier to produce smart solutions that unlock information and make them available on the internet. Some of the most common uses of telemetry technology include:
- For homeowners, sending data to a service provider to control and monitor home energy or security.
- For healthcare providers, transmitting health data to a medical facility and getting feedback regarding diagnoses or treatment based on an analysis of the data.
- For consumers, making a credit card transaction as data is sent to the bank’s server which then matches the information with a specific account as well as using RFID tags to track retail inventory and sending this information to others in the supply chain.
- For logistics companies, sending vending machines sales data to a central location so that drivers can be contacted to restock inventory.
