The Internet Of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data with each other in an easy and effective manner. Each object is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure.
What Is Internet Of Things(IOT)?
The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, virtual power plants, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities.
Applications Of IOT
“Things”, in the IoT sense, can refer to a wide variety of devices
such as heart monitoring implants, bio-chip transponders on farm
animals, cameras streaming live feeds of wild animals in coastal waters,
automobiles with built-in sensors, DNA analysis devices for
environmental/food/pathogen monitoring, or field operation devices that
assist firefighters in search and rescue operations. Legal scholars
suggest regarding “things” as an “inextricable mixture of hardware,
software, data and service”.
