Internet of Things (IoT)
The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the network of physical objects—“things”— that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet.
Why is IoT so important?
Over the past few years, IoT has become one of the most important technologies of the 21st century.
Now that we can connect everyday objects— kitchen appliances, cars, thermostats, baby monitors—to the internet via embedded devices, seamless communication is possible between people, processes, and things.
By means of low-cost computing, the cloud, big data, analytics, and mobile technologies, physical things can share and collect data with minimal human intervention.
In this hyperconnected world, digital systems can record, monitor, and adjust each interaction between connected things. The physical world meets the digital world—and they cooperate.
have made IoT possible?
Access to low-cost, low-power sensor technology.
Affordable and reliable sensors are making IoT technology possible for more manufacturers.
Cloud computing platforms.
Machine learning and analytics.
Conversational artificial intelligence (AI).
Advances in neural networks have brought natural-language processing (NLP) to IoT devices (such as digital personal assistants Alexa, Cortana, and Siri) and made them appealing, affordable, and viable for home use.
What is industrial IoT?
Recently, industries have used machine-to-machine communication (M2M) to achieve wireless automation and control.
But with the emergence of cloud and allied technologies (such as analytics and machine learning), industries can achieve a new automation layer and with it create new revenue and business models.
Industrial IoT (IIoT) refers to the application of IoT technology in industrial settings, especially with respect to instrumentation and control of sensors and devices that engage cloud technologies.
