IoT Developers-According to a survey of developers by Avnet, IoT is cited most often as the most improved and the most important technology. This is followed by sensor technology, which is an integral part of IoT. Avnet surveyed 1190 members of its Hackster.io and Element 14 communities to find out how they’re focusing their development efforts and what challenges they’ve faced over the past year.
Results from the survey include:
- 26 percent of developers agree that IoT was the most improved technology over the past year. IoT also tops the list of most important technologies (37 percent), followed by sensors (24 percent).
- An overwhelming majority (81 percent) of developers working at startups say IoT security is a major roadblock when launching new products and services.
- One in 3 developers have recently looked for partners to help bring products to market. When looking for a partner, 76 percent of developers prefer the flexibility of choosing specialized expertise.
IoT technology was cited by respondents as the most significant growth in importance, up 14 percent from last year, followed closely by drones and robotics projects, which were up 8 percent. More than a quarter of developers (26 percent) also noted that IoT is also the most improved technology of the past year, followed closely by artificial intelligence at 25 percent.
Those at Avnet see a direct correlation between the rise in IoT technology and the rise in the use of sensors. “When you think about a connected device, it’s connected for a reason,” Bob Merriman, director of strategic planning at Avnet, told Design News. “Most frequently IoT data is acquired through a sensor, whether it’s sensing light or sound.”
Security Is Among the Top Issues
Developers believe that security remains the biggest technological hurdle in IoT deployment (81 percent). Time-to-market is also a great challenge, according to respondents. They say that cost is the biggest challenge once they move from design to manufacturing.
