Internet of Things (IoT) for public safety refers to the use of connected devices and sensors to enhance safety and security in public places such as cities, buildings, and transportation systems. These devices and sensors can collect and analyze data in real time, providing valuable insights and information to help prevent and respond to safety and security incidents. The use of AI and machine learning-based solutions, as well as an increase in smart city projects, are expected to propel the IoT for the public safety market to significant development. Heightened situational awareness is a result of improved real-time performance made possible by IoT. For instance, the fully automated self-parking software developed by Mercedes-Benz and Robert Bosch has been granted approval. This software allows cars to autonomously drive themselves into a parking spot that has been pre-booked at a parking lot in Stuttgart Airport.
IoT technology is being used in various fields, and many government and law enforcement agencies are implementing strategies to adopt IoT devices to enhance public safety. Governments also use IoT devices to predict natural disasters such as floods before they happen to minimize losses. This increases the popularity of IoT devices among the public, leading to growth in the market. For instance, in May 2022, AT&T was the first carrier to introduce location-based routing for wireless 9-1-1 calls across the U.S. The new "Locate Before Route" feature, developed by Intrado, uses device GPS and other hybrid information to accurately identify the location of a wireless 9-1-1 call and route it to the appropriate public safety answering point (PSAP). This ensures that emergency calls are quickly and accurately routed to the appropriate call center for a faster response time.
The IoT in the public safety market has experienced substantial growth in recent years, even in the COVID-19 pandemic the market saw significant growth. Lockdowns implemented by many countries and the rising number of smart city projects in developing nations are contributing to this growth. After recovering from the pandemic, the IoT in the public safety market is expected to continue to thrive. Governments and organizations are installing various IoT devices to improve public safety and minimize the impact of natural disasters, presenting significant opportunities for the market. For instance, during the pandemic use of IoT helped the government in the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients and even provided delivery of essential medications to people in need.
The IoT for the public safety market in North America is expected to grow at a significant speed during the forecast period and this is attributed to the implementation of smart city projects and the acceptance of these projects by governmental authorities have increased the adoption of IoT devices for public safety and security. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to rise significantly throughout the projection period, due to the introduction of new smart city initiatives in emerging countries and the deployment of various IoT devices. These gadgets include cutting-edge communication networks, security measures, sophisticated cameras, and other things.
