Internet of things is an idea of connecting the digital machines and devices that can be digitized. This will allow us a better control over the things we possess. Internet of things is a term coined by Kevin Ashton in 1999 while working in the Auto-ID centers.
According to Wikipedia Internet of Things can be defined as:
“The internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items—embedded with electronics, softwares, sensors, and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data”
Internet of things already has been applied in many areas. Listing them all one by one will be impractical to say the least. So we’ve prepared a prominent list.
With the pace we are moving, nobody can imagine the extent to which we can digitize ourselves. “Sky is the limit” is the right term to use; I guess. But let’s try to narrow it down.
Internet of Things is a beast waiting to be unleashed. It presents many opportunities for the entrepreneurs. With all the research and advancement and mostly our never ending desire to never stop advancing in this field will definitely take the Internet of things (IoT) a long way. Or shall I confess, if we invest our time on IoT, IoT will take us a long way.
