IoT in connected government helps to deliver better citizen services and provides transparency

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an uninterrupted connected network of embedded objects/ devices with identifiers without any human intervention using standard and communication protocol.  It provides encryption, authorization and identification with different device protocols like MQTT, STOMP or AMQP to securely move data from one network to another. IoT in connected Government helps to deliver better citizen services and provides transparency. It improves the employee productivity and cost savings. It helps in delivering contextual and personalized service to citizens and enhances the security and improves the quality of life. With secure and accessible information government business makes more efficient, data driven, changing the lives of citizens for the better. IoT focused Connected Government solution helps in rapidly developing preventive and predictive analytics. It also helps in optimizing the business processes and prebuilt integrations across multiple departmental applications. In summary, this opens up the new opportunities for government to share information, innovate, make more informed decisions and extend the scope of machine and human interaction.

Introduction
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a seamless connected system of embedded sensors/devices in which communication is done using standard and interoperable communication protocols without human intervention.

The vision of any Connected Government in the digital era is "To develop connected and intelligent IoT based systems to contribute to government's economy, improving citizen satisfaction, safe society, environment sustainability, city management and global need."

IoT has data feeds from various sources like cameras, weather and environmental sensors, traffic signals, parking zones, shared video surveillance service.  The processing of this data leads to better government - IoT agency coordination and the development of better services to citizens.

Market Research predicts that, by 2020, up to 30 billion devices with unique IP addresses are connected to the Internet [1]. Also, "Internet of Everything" has an economic impact of more than $14 trillion by 2020 [2].  By 2020, the "Internet of Things" is powered by a trillion sensors [3]. In 2019, the "Internet of Things" device market is double the size of the smartphone, PC, tablet, connected car, and the wearable market combined [4]. By 2020, component costs will have to come down to the point that connectivity will become a standard feature even for processors costing less than $1 [5].

This article articulates the drivers for connected government using IoT and its objectives. It also describes various scenarios in which IoT used across departments in connected government.

IoT Challenges Today
The trend in government seems to be IoT on an agency-by-agency basis leading to different policies, strategies, standards and subsequent analysis and use of data. There are number of challenges preventing the adoption of IoT in governments. The main challenges are:

  • Complexity: Lack of funding, skills and usage of digital technologies, culture and strategic leadership commitment are the challenges today.
  • Data Management: In Government, there is a need for managing huge volumes of data related to government departments, citizens, land and GIS. This data needs to be encrypted and secured. To maintain the data privacy and data integrity is a big challenge.
  • Connectivity: IoT devices require good network connectivity to deliver the data payload and continuous streaming of unstructured data. Example being the Patient medical records, rainfall reports, disaster information etc.  Having a network connectivity continuously is a challenge.
  • Security: Moving the information back and forth between departments, citizens and third parties in a secure mode is the basic requirement in Government as IoT introduces new risks and vulnerabilities. This leaves users exposed to various kinds of threats.
  • Interoperability: This requires not only the systems be networked together, but also that data from each system has to be interoperable. Majority of the cases, IoT is fragmented and lacks in interoperability due to different OEMs, OS, Versions, Connecters and Protocols.
  • Risk and Privacy: Devices sometimes gather and provides personal data without the user's active participation or approval. Sometimes gathers very private information about individuals based on indirect interactions violating the privacy policies.
  • Integration: Need to design an integration platform that can connect any application, service, data or device with the government eco system. Having a solution that comprises of an integrated "all-in-one" platform which provides the device connectivity, event analytics, and enterprise connectivity capabilities is a big challenge.
  • Regulatory and Compliance - Adoption of regulations by an IoT agencies is a challenge.
  • Governance: One of the major concerns across government agencies is the lack of big picture or an integrated view of the IoT implementation. It has been pushed by various departments in a silo-ed fashion.  Also, government leaders lack a complete understanding of IoT technology and its potential benefits.

IoT: Drivers for Connected Government
IoT can increase value by both collecting better information about how effectively government servants, programs, and policies are addressing challenges as well as helping government to deliver citizen-centric services based on real-time and situation-specific conditions. The various stakeholders that are leveraging IoT in connected government are depicted below,

 

Information Flow in an IoT Scenario
The Information flow in Government using IoT has five stages (5C) : Collection, Communication, Consolidation, Conclusion and Choice.

  1. Collection: Sensors/devices collect data on the physical environment-for example, measuring things such as air temperature, location, or device status. Sensors passively measure or capture information with no human intervention.
  2. Communication: Devices share the information with other devices or with a centralized platform. Data is seamlessly transmitted among objects or from objects to a central repository.
  3. Consolidation: The information from multiple sources are captured and combined at one point. Data is aggregated as a devices communicate with each other. Rules determine the quality and importance of data standards.
  4. Conclusion: Analytical tools help detect patterns that signal a need for action, or anomalies that require further investigation.
  5. Choice: Insights derived from analysis either initiate an action or frame a choice for the user. Real time signals make the insights actionable, either presenting choices without emotional bias or directly initiating the action.

IoT in agriculture contribute to,

  • Crop monitoring: Sensors can be used to monitor crops and the health of plants using the data collected. Sensors can also be used for early monitoring of pests and disease.
  • Food safety: The entire supply chain, the Farm, logistics and retails, are all becoming connected. Farm products can be connected with RFID tags, increasing customer confidence.
  • Climate monitoring: Sensors can be used to monitor temperature, humidity, light intensity and soil moisture. These data can be sent to the central system to trigger alerts and automate water, air and crop control.
  • Logistics monitoring: Location based sensors can be used to track vegetables and other Farm products during transport and storage. This enhances scheduling and automates the supply chain.
  • Livestock farming monitoring: The monitoring of Farm animals can be monitored via sensors to detect potential signs of disease. The data can be analysed from the central system and relevant information can be sent to the farmers.

Conclusion
There are many opportunities for the government to use the IoT to make government services more efficient. IoT cannot be analyzed or implemented properly without collaborative efforts between Industry, Government and Agencies. Government and Agencies need to work together to build a consistent set of standards that everyone can follow.

Connected Government solutions using IoT is used in the domain front:

  • Public Safety departments to leverage IoT for the protection of citizens. One method is through using video images and sensors to provide predictive analysis, so that government can provide security to citizen gathering during parades or inaugural events.
