IoT Startups Operating In Iran Have Made Great Strides In The Past Few Years And Have Launched Good Applications In The Fields Of the Environment, Agriculture, Transportation, Energy Management, Education, Health, And Security, Some Of Which Are Not Only Profitable But Also Prevented From Leaving. Currencies Are Imported From The Country.
Government agencies support the Internet of Things.
In Iran, the Internet of Things is of interest to government officials. The resolution of the fifty-third session of the Supreme Council of Cyberspace dated 1397/7/30 with the title of the requirements governing the Internet of Things in the communication network emphasizes this issue. This decree consists of four articles, the first of which includes basic general and specific definitions.
Articles 2 and 3 include general and specific requirements. Article 4, which refers to leadership and oversight, states: “Within six months, the National Cyberspace Center while dividing national work and setting development priorities, shall prepare a report on the actions taken in the field of Internet of Things in the country and submit it to the Supreme Council of Cyberspace.
” In this regard, the National Cyberspace Center launched the IoT Steering Working Group to create more interaction between organizations and related executive bodies to use the potential IoT capacities in the country.
According to the public relations of the National Cyberspace Center, compiling a strategic document and roadmap for the Internet of Things, leading national master plans in this area, identifying strengths and threats to the development of the Internet of Things in the country, reviewing and dividing national work by identifying all stakeholders and actors Government, non – government, public, and the identification and selection of national pilot projects in the field of Internet of Things are the most important goals of this working group.
In the Sixth Development Plan, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology was tasked with developing, monitoring, monitoring, and directing new technologies, such as the Internet of Things.
For this purpose, the development of the IoT roadmap includes in the work plan of the Research Institute of Communication and Information Technology.
The result of the IoT Roadmap project is technical, economic, and cultural documents, the detailed analysis of which is given in this document. In this document, after presenting the vision and goals of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology in entering the field of IoT technology, a model for the IoT ecosystem will be proposed.
The next step examines all the components of the ecosystem and explains the role and function of each.
The various leading scenarios regarding the Ministry’s approach to market development and IoT business form the next part of the documentary. Then, based on a selected scenario, the Ministry’s goals, strategies, and priority actions for each ecosystem component are presented.

Why is the Internet of Things popular?
The Internet of Things collects almost unlimited and accurate information about people and the environment around them, which, if processed properly, provides accurate knowledge to organizations and individuals.
For example, if you have accurate information about water, electricity, and gas consumption in different seasons of the year, you will plan more accurately and intelligently to manage energy consumption.
The issue is that a memorandum of cooperation was signed between Tehran Electricity Distribution Company and Rytl Communication Services Company to develop smart meter communication infrastructure in Tehran so that the development of smart meter communication infrastructure enters the operational phase.
Do IoT services help improve the country’s economic situation?
One of the biggest problems of the country, about which various conferences are held every year and which is mentioned by the Radio and Television in the form of roundtables and analytical programs, is the issue of energy waste in two areas of water and electricity.
The Internet of Things can effectively reduce energy waste and increase the productivity of home and industrial equipment. When smart meters are widely installed in offices and homes, they help subscribers and offices manage energy consumption.
In addition, one of the important problems of Iranian metropolises is the issue of air pollution, especially in the cold seasons.
IoT sensors and equipment can help protect the environment by collecting and analyzing information on air pollution.
Another important application of the IoT is in the discussion of transportation and fuel efficiency. The use of IoT equipment in the supply chain to combat smuggling and track the status of packages, the optimal use of water in the agricultural industry increases production and reduces waste.
In animal husbandry, tracking sick animals, increasing the lactation of cows, and feeding sheep bring economic prosperity to activists in this field.
Commercialization of the Internet of Things ecosystem
Statistics published by various sites and sources indicate that the exponential growth of the Internet of Things in Iran is a good trend, however, commercially, the import of the Internet of Things to Iran has not yet reached great profitability because most of the activities carried out in This has been done by organizations, research institutes, and private knowledge-based companies, and the contracts concluded in this field have not been on a large national scale.
Commercialization takes several steps, from creating an idea to entering the market.
One of the most important steps in IoT startups is to create the right business model that ensures the profitability and success of startups. The most important factor that makes the Internet of Things commercial is the investment and allocation of funds to construct smart devices.
However, due to currency price fluctuations and sanctions, IT investors try to invest as much as possible in safe and well-known markets.
Internet service providers also try to assess the situation and invest as much as possible in short-term plans. That is why the IoT infrastructure development process is slow.
Despite all the problems, good projects have been completed in the country, and we will get acquainted with some important examples in this field.
What is the situation of the Internet of Things in Iran?
If we look at the formation of the Internet of Things in Iran and the interaction of the private sector with the government, we see that the first spark for the formation of the Internet of Things in Iran and introducing the concepts of this new technology to the private and public sector occurred in 1993 and 1994.
It is not bad to know that Network Magazine also introduced this technology and related architectures in the same years and a fixed section.
In the following years, activists and elites entered the field, and the process of building prototypes began in connection with the smartening of energy, healthcare, construction, and other industries.
Then private and public companies in the form of a leading and decision-making non-governmental working group called the Internet of Things Forum of Iran at http://www.iraniotforum.org/To form and strengthen the Internet of Things ecosystem in Iran, cooperate and synergize with government institutions for proper and effective policy-making and meet challenges, strengthen local capabilities in expanding diverse and practical services in the country, help expand the activities of Iranian IoT actors in International markets and synergies to help create and take advantage of business opportunities for IoT operators.
In this regard, the projects of various companies have taken important steps to advance this goal. For example, Aria Hamrah Company successfully installed smart meters in 17 airports in the country in 1996.
However, in the following years, due to the economic difficulties, the development of the Internet of Things market slowed down, as budget deficits and large-scale management changes prevented the programs from being completed following the set goals.
Despite the various problems in the path of this new technology, IoT projects and startups in Iran are working in transportation, energy management, environmental protection, agriculture, animal husbandry, education, health, building intelligence, and production units.
One of the most important projects in this field is the Smart Tehran project. In this regard, so far, important projects such as my Tehran system, system together, marginal park, API system, transparency system, Tehran data view system, Tehran mobile map called Raya, location recognition system, waste collection and separation intelligence, and integrated payment platform QRCode The taxi fleet has been completed.
Smart road transport
In road transport, we need the intelligent fleet traffic monitoring system (Sepahtan) of the country’s public transport to improve the industry’s efficiency.
The country’s transport, especially the public road transport fleet, and according to the current laws and regulations of the country, pointed out that the product of the cooperation of the NAJA is the Roads and Transportation Organization.
All suburban passenger buses in the country are equipped with this system, and passenger rides and suburban cargo fleets are also being equipped.
Faham, the country’s smart grid
In the field of energy management, we should mention the intelligent system of energy measurement and management. In line with the goals of Iran’s electricity industry to create an intelligent energy network, as a first step, the national smart meta-system plan for energy measurement and management, called Faham for short, is defined and specified according to the needs of the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum by the Energy Efficiency Organization of Iran.
Within the framework of this project, smart meters will be installed for one million electricity subscribers in 6 provinces of Iran.
According to Faham officials, this project needs 60,000 billion rials to be implemented. The main application of this system is intelligent load reading and control and energy management using new technologies.
Intelligent tracking (electronic binding)
Another application of the Internet of Things in tracking is implementing an electronic commitment project for prisoners, which has been implemented in most provinces of the country.
Mohammad Mehdi Haja Mohammadi, head of the country’s Prisons and Security Organization, said: “One of the pivotal plans for alternative custody under the rules is the use of electronic confinement.
“The use of this new technology in the country reduces the criminal population and helps the families of prisoners and is one of the central goals and actions.”
In agriculture, the agricultural early monitoring and warning system is an intelligent system that receives, transmits. It monitors effective environmental parameters such as soil and air humidity, temperature, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, and light pests receives services from meteorological websites. Provides intelligent analysis of climate by considering horticultural and agricultural products.
This processing system uses data mining mechanisms to regularly analyze the received data based on the principles of sustainable agricultural models approved by FAO and the possibility of detecting and predicting the occurrence of dangerous phenomena in agriculture such as water and temperature stresses, diseases related to environmental parameters such as Provides the spread of pests and so on.
Livestock and intelligent animal husbandry
Researchers at the Sharif University of Technology have developed a device that intelligently monitors the quality of animal protection. Sharif Green Communications is one of the startup teams based in the Technology Services Complex of the Sharif University of Technology, active in the Internet of Things, which has designed this intelligent system in livestock intelligence.
Smart meter installation project for subscribers
A smart electricity meter is an electronic device that records power consumption, voltage, current, and power factors. Smart meters send information to the consumer for greater transparency of consumer behavior and monitoring of their system and bill. Typically, smart meters record energy in real-time and regularly provide information to the consumer at short intervals.
According to the Mehr correspondent, in a public meeting on March 30, 1999, during a review of the revenue section of the 1400 budget bill, the members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly agreed with paragraph (d) of note (15) of the single article of the budget bill. They obliged the government to Relevant companies to install smart meters built inside for electricity and gas subscribers with priority for high-consumption subscribers.
