The advanced IoT technology has set new world records this year by hilarious demonstrations in smart Tokyo, organizing the big event Olympics 2020. The journey of smart events begins with robotic guides, crowd control by artificial intelligence, and immersive virtual reality has made IoT among maximum preference.
Due to the COVID outbreak, the world’s big cultural event has been postponed for a year, but now IoT careers have made Olympics 2020 possible to be showcased on the world stage. Moreover, history reveals that the most memorable and noteworthy display of human skills gathers a 3.5 billion audience in the 2016 Summer Games and 1.92 billion in the 2018 Winter Games.
To further enhance the audience’s real-time data, the Japanese government indulged the Internet of Things is making the Olympics a big event to huge success.
How does IoT influences Tokyo Olympics?
To feel the real thrill of organizing the biggest cultural event, Tokyo took advantage of IoT technologies to develop smart city notions. The Olympic broadcasting services are responsible for providing Olympic content to all news agencies to expand virtual reality technology. Hence, Tokyo implemented true VR technology for the 2020 Olympics.
Public transit systems are taken care of by the integrated technological solutions of IoT, such as trains, buses, and trams to run on time. Minimal disruptions are expected as the embedded sensors-based IoT smart maintenance has been implemented.
The Tokyo Bureau of the environment has deployed unique energy-saving smart meters to measure the drop in carbon dioxide emissions during events.
How do cutting-edge IoT and 5G technology cater for Big Events?
Overwhelming smart stadiums
The largest telecom company of Japan, Nippon Telegraph, and the telephone group took responsibility for making the Olympic a big event excessively happening and safe. The best technology providers deployed 5G connectivity which enabled regular connectivity and support throughout the event by providing IoT wearables for athletes to have video conferencing facilities to be in touch with their family and friends.
For making the 2020 Olympics a memorable event, smart systems were incorporated into smart stadiums by activating wireless connectivity for high-quality streaming. For more insights about the game or skills shown by the athletes, instant replays on the spectator’s smartphones can be viewed with the help of an innovative stadium app.
The same app also provides information about discounts and restroom availability for the fans to spend their leisure time. Pre-ordered food will also be delivered directly onto the spectator’s seats, which these smart stadium app can manage.

Toyota displayed the best of its technological advancement for Olympics 2020 by providing a fleet of robots. The robots are called Miraitaiwa, and Some are whole-heartedly greeting athletes and guests to the venue, which makes the event hilarious for children.
T-HR3 humanoid robot and T-TR1 robot are responsible for making spectators integrate with a robotic game display. The complete mechanical assistance is never-ending for the Olympics as the field support robot has stimulated the self-navigating strategy to retrieve long-distance thrown objects like hammers and spears.
Apart from the above four robots, other robots deliver food and the athletes, disabled attendees, and spectators.
IoT jobs of citizens have been backed by the National Institute of information and communications technology to find out the root cause of weaknesses in security features. To avoid cybersecurity threats among IoT devices has activated the ministry of internal affairs and communications cybersecurity to mitigate risks during the event.
For resolving the cybercrime issues, various tests have been done by keeping in mind the usage of IoT devices being implemented for the event.
