Analog technology: Collect information

Analog technology like Internet of Things (IoT) is a system that works with the idea that refers to the applications that run by collecting the environmental data through a remote place, process the data, and then producing the results to be accessed through the internet so the users can use it for further purposes. For instance, about the fitness tracker that uses Internet of Things system inside, it collects the information about all activities you do through the device’ sensors. The data collecting happens near your body and then will be processed digitally through an application inside your phone or other device.

The Advantages of Analog Technology




The analog technology plays the role with the device’s sensors. The definition of analog here is the system or device that symbolizes the changing values as the quantities of variable physical continuously. The analog technology brings advantages such as offering the immeasurable sums of representations. For instance, the moving of hands that can be in any possible time; it can’t be recorded by digital technology that should work with finite numbers.

The accurate work of analog system is another advantage of analog system. It collects data as it is; unlike digital system that always convert the data into numbers. Besides, the digital technology will also not transfer the data as exact as the analog technology does.

In the IoT devices, the data collecting is done by using analog sensors so the data can be used for the operation of the device. In most devices, the analog sensors are combined with the converter of analog to digital. It will translate the raw data taken from the sensors so the digital form is gotten. Then the data will be accumulated and analyzed, as well as offered for the interpretation inside the IoT devices.
