On a Brief Prowl....
..as I saw the "categories, it was interesting how the initial reaction to the polls was as skewed as it was.   I voted for Smart Homes because I continue to view Smart Homes as the next Holoy Grail (and we've had extensive deliberations here).  Industrial iOT, I Submit, has been with us with thea dvent of robotics..and will continue to be so....

Truly interesting times..as we march on to May w/ all the possiblities.

Re: On a Brief Prowl....
I picked utilities because it's going to be one of the fastest to deploy (since so much is already in place for that), and you don't get revenue till you deploy.  But I think industrial IoT, transportation, and most of all agriculture are the ones with the biggest long run potential.

Especially agriculture; once you've got sensors, networks, bots, and stations that can take the place of peasants, food production can be so amazingly productive that it could well wipe out world hunger in less than a generation. Sadly, our senseless worship of free markets will probably hold back development of that for decades.

I picked utilities for similar reasons. Utility usage will be big for IoT. I don't see smart home technology growing rapidly in the same way...

Re: On a Brief Prowl....
Michelle,

Also, just as scorekeeping, there's a huge overlap between utilities and smart home IoT. Is that gadget that my local power company wants me to add that cycles my AC on and off to share power more efficiently  utlity IoT (it's talking to them and they'll be the actual owners) or smart home IoT (it's running part of my house to reduce my budget, and I'll choose many of its settings).

What I actually want to see in smart homes in smart drains. There ought to be a "flushing water" tank into which the washing machine, roof gutters, and the gross* sediment filter are routed, via a sensing/sterilizing system so that the water is left dirty but kept sterilized; a gross sediment filtering system that the sinks, dishwasher, shower, and tub empty into that extracts the gross lumpy stuff into a soggy but sterile slurry; and a smart flush that uses the flushwater tank to fill up the toilet tanks, and also draws just enough flushwater to wash out the gross particulate slurry.  We could be getting 3-4 uses out of 90% of the water coming into each house AND having fewer clogged drains as well -- there's an IoT application you don't hear much about!

*("Gross in both senses!")

@John My electric company has no such device requests for its customers. I can see the advantages of your filtering sensor+collection basin idea. It would be neat to get something like this for gray water sooner, rather than later. At home water recycling for the solar powered home!

IoT Growth Predictions
I said Industrial IoT because they have gone a great deal of work to automate their processes which provides a huge ROI. Other markets have started to use IoT but many are fearful, feel it is too complex and do not really understand what it is, what to do with it or how to use it.

Re: On a Brief Prowl....
I did too, mostly because of what you said. Has the most room to grow in my opinion.

Re: On a Brief Prowl....
@JohnBarnes, That is a good point, didn't think about how it could benefit agriculture. But on the other side it may help companies generate more GMF (genetically modified food) at a faster rate.
