What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?
The vast network of devices connected to the Internet, including smart phones and tablets,cars, machines in production plants, jet engines, oil drills, wearable devices, and more. These “things” collect and exchange data.
IoT – are bringing a kind of “super visibility” to nearly every industry. Imagine utilities and telcos that can predict and prevent service outages, airlines that can remotely monitor and optimise plane performance, and healthcare organisations that can base treatment on real-time genome analysis. The business possibilities are endless.
If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things – using data they gathered without any help from us – we would be able to track and count everything, and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing or recalling, and whether they were fresh or past their best.
What is the scope of IoT?
Internet of Things can connect devices embedded in various systems to the internet.
When devices/objects can represent themselves digitally, they can be controlled from anywhere. The connectivity then helps us capture more data from more places, ensuring more ways of increasing efficiency and improving safety and IoT security.
