Internet of nano-objects – Boulevard de la sécurité


The Internet of Things (IoT) is a popular topic in today’s 4.0 revolution. Nanotechnology is the same, hope you have at least read or heard the two sentences above. What about the nano internet of things, a combination of IoT and nano is something to look forward to. Today, let’s discover a technology that is expected to grow very rapidly over the next decade with Speranza.

1. What are nanomaterials?

First of all, we need to understand the concept of nano-things. These are all things made from nanomaterials. Nano is the name taken from the nanometric unit (1 nm = 10-9 m), indicating that the size of nanomaterials is extremely small like cells in biology. These materials often have granular, fibrous or sheet-like structures and are increasingly used in everyday life. Typical examples of nano-objects are nanoelectronic devices, superconductors in electric charges, sensors in medicine, etc.

Nano objects are created from nanotechnology, which began with scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the 80s of the last century. This technology includes a variety of physical and chemical methods for making nanomaterials, typically wet chemical, mechanical, and thermal evaporation methods. In almost half a century, scientists have also created many new methods and made nanomaterials increasingly useful for human life. Industrial nanoproducts are experiencing exponential growth, particularly in the medical and food industries.

2. Internet of Nano-Objects – The Future Trend.

Basically, the Internet of Nano-Objects (IoNT) is the IoT system of nanodevices. These devices vary in size from 0.1 to 100 nanometers, to show how small the image is, we use the comparison to the thickness of a sheet of paper, and the paper is 100,000 nanometers thick! Because of their ability to connect with each other and connect to the Internet, these devices must be designed with great sophistication. In addition, they also have high durability to be able to withstand the pressure of the environment. And the scale of the IoNT system is also smaller than that of the IoT due to the limited signal transmission capacity, usually within a single facility such as a school or senior healthcare facility.

Recalling the IoT, this system is a set of interconnected, self-collected sensors that transmit data to each other via the cloud. Today, systems are integrated with modern technologies such as machine learning, AI and big data to help process data and make decisions on their own without human intervention. The Internet of Nano-Objects also works by the same mechanism as above, but the ability to collect data is much better. Small system sensors can be collected anywhere the user wants. These components communicate with each other in two ways: electromagnetic waves and encoded molecules that store information within them.

An IoNT system has four basic components: the nano-router, the interface device, the nano-nodes, and the receive port. Nanodes are the sensors shown above, and routers help identify nodes and monitor communication between nodes before sending that data to the interfacing device. The function of ports is to control access to the system and the system to the Internet. IoT and nanotechnology are the main trends in the current technological revolution, promising that many improvements will explode shortly.

3. Application of the Internet of nano objects.

The Internet of Nano-Objects, as well as the Internet of Things, is still a potential area. The point system is particularly useful in a small area such as a factory or medical facility. IoNT technology allows emissions, temperature and humidity to be monitored in every corner of a factory. Or build a system to monitor water quality as well as vehicle emissions. The IoNT’s sensors are able to squeeze into every nook and cranny, helping to collect data much more accurately than conventional IoT devices. IoNT is also used in the food industry. Sensors help monitor and control food quality, measure production and storage times.

In particular, the IoTN has excellent applications in the medical field. Nanosensors installed in the patient’s body make it possible to collect health data and give an alert in the event of an anomaly. The IoTN is making a breakthrough in healthcare when doctors can monitor patients in real time instead of having to manually measure as before. Nano-objects also help detect viruses and bacteria and alert doctors and patients
