Data from the Internet of Things (IoT) is quickly becoming important for the field of product development. The data collected from a device can help better understand consumer requirements and allow for more solid decision-making.

DATAVERSITY brought this information to our attention in their article, “How IoT Data Improves Product Development.”

This is taking place is some surprising arenas as well. The collected data is changing the nature of many products. For example, a new device named ‘Health Buddy’, created by Bosch, monitors all the vital signs of a patient and records patient inputs. This device is designed so patients in need can stay in the comfort of their homes and still send health updates to medical professionals.

Healthcare is not the only area taking advantage of the power IoT offers. Home environmental systems and HVAC equipment utilize it for efficient controlling of temperature and air quality.
