Embracing IoT to Empower Indonesia’s Smart Future

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology is promoting the implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology as a smart solution for Indonesia. The real-world application of IoT in daily life opens possibilities for a more convenient world. IoT gives individuals greater control over their lives and the things around them, providing enhanced convenience.

For instance, when a smartwatch is connected to a smartphone, the smartwatch records the user’s activities. The recorded data is then wirelessly transmitted to the smartphone. The user can easily track the number of steps taken and the distance covered. This data can serve as a reference to determine whether the user has engaged in enough physical activity or needs to do more, ultimately improving the quality of life for smart watch and smartphone users.

In conclusion, IoT aims to seamlessly connect devices with devices, devices with users, and users with users. In light of this, the Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology has collaborated with the IoT association in Indonesia to organise the Indonesia Smart Solutions Summit (ISSS) 2023, challenging innovators to create new IoT-based innovations in Indonesia.

Over the past five years, the Directorate General of Resources and Equipment of Post and Information Technology (Dirjen SDPPI) under the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo) has actively collaborated with various stakeholders to develop and strengthen the IoT ecosystem in Indonesia. IoT is a technology that has positively impacted various sectors of life, including industry, transportation, agriculture, healthcare, and more.

According to the Indonesian Minister of Industry, the market share of IoT in Indonesia is expected to grow rapidly along with other advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR), advanced robotics, and 3D printing.

The IoT association’s chairman, Teguh Prasetya, predicted that the IoT market in Indonesia is projected to reach 40 billion US dollars or around 572.7 trillion Indonesian rupiahs by 2025, with 678 connected IoT devices.

Moreover, the report revealed that the country’s manufacturing sector alone is performing at 30 to 35%, and the government aims to increase the sector’s contribution to GDP from 20% to 25% by 2025. The success of IoT implementation is considered vital for Indonesia’s ambition to become a top 10 world economy by 2030.

The potential benefits of IoT include increased operational efficiency, improved health and safety, and increased productivity or sales. There is a possibility of 400 million IoT-connected sensor devices in Indonesia, highlighting the substantial opportunities for efficiency and effectiveness through IoT.

The ISSS, initiated by the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology in collaboration with the IoT association in Indonesia, fosters optimism among Indonesian youth in creating technology-based products that can continue to develop and compete globally. Ensuring timely delivery to the market and successful use cases is emphasised to capitalise on the momentum of technology adoption in industry.

Through initiatives like the Indonesia ISSS and collaborations with IoT associations, the Indonesian government aims to boost the nation’s confidence in creating technology-driven products and pave the way for further growth and global competitiveness.
