This detailed study explores the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) and its applicability to both human and robotic, local and remote operations in the energy and space industries. These IoT devices are primarily Internetconnected sensors used to provide data about their surrounding environments. These environments might be as small as a storage unit or a traffic light, or as broad as a weather system or transAtlantic crossing. Through deployment of automated monitoring systems across major facilities, oil and gas companies are enabled to leverage IoT analytics to improve business and enhance process safety. This study looks at four sectors: energy, Earth observation, remote platforms, and future space endeavors. Within each of these domains we address the current mode of operations and how the application of IoT can increase efficiency, reduce cost, and improve human safety with an emphasis on the extraction, distribution, and transmission of energy.
