Commenting on the report, an analyst from Reports team said: “M2M enables machines to connect and interact securely over a network. It also keeps track of safety and security measures by providing remote access, 24×7 monitoring, and automated emergency response. M2M is an important feature in the telecom and IT landscape as it helps connect remote sensing, monitoring, and actuating devices. M2M communication systems in the transportation sector are gaining prominence quickly in the market. These systems enable communication among smart devices over a wired or wireless networking infrastructure.

According to the report, the increased adoption of communication devices in the transportation sector and the emergence of new players in the market have led to a decline in the prices of communication devices. Also, technological advances have helped the transportation and logistics sector to simplify commercial transportation systems. This has accelerated the development of low-cost communication devices. The cost of sensors is also declining as a large number of established and start-up firms develop sensor devices for IoT. The sensors are an important component of IoT in the transportation system. Declining prices of the sensors have encouraged transportation authorities to build smart transportation systems. Thus, the affordability of components of IoT devices has increased the adoption rate of IoT in the transportation sector.

Further, the report states that the large-scale commercial use of IoT is hindered by the lack of standardization. In the IoT network, standardization is necessary in the technical and application layers. The technical layer involves communication protocols for carrier-level communication, terminal description and service discovery mechanisms, and application data switching mechanisms. The application layer includes terminals, communication protocols, and application specifications. However, there are no specific standards for technical and application layer communications in an IoT framework, which limit the adoption of IoT among the end-users.
