Some of the added values of IoT already available to the industry can be extended to consumers with many benefits
Traceability. Traceability solutions are deployed by most of the manufacturer, especially in the food and beverage sector, where food safety standards make it mandatory. But in most cases, all the information remains with the manufacturer. What if, as a consumer, we could, with a simple scan of the tomato sauce can we’re considering to buy, know that the sauce in this specific can has been made with tomatoes grown in Piacenza, Italy and harvested on July 23rd, while the can was made in Poland, and its total carbon footprint was of xxx, etc.? Then, we could choose the tomato sauce, or whatever we want to buy based on the criteria we select, and not only based on the price tag.
Mass customization. IoT is providing a lot of flexibility to manufacturing, which means potentially, mass customization, production series of single units. Today we’re used already to personalized our phone covers with our family pictures, why not do the same with a much wider range of consumer goods?
Higher Automation. In industrial field, automation allows to increase efficiency, but as well to limit errors, and decrease risks. Translating this into home context, we could imagine an automatic washing machine, that based on the information embedded on the RFID tag there is now on each of our clothes, would sort them by color / fabric, and adapt the washing program to each batch.
No stock – no waste. One of the value of Internet of Thing is to allow optimization along the supply chain, on a full eco-system and thus be more efficient than doing local optimizations on different fragments. In a fully optimized ecosystem, we would produce only what we need, and avoid stock, which means as well avoid waste.
