One of the latest core offerings by the tech trends, is now catching up with all the enterprises and organizations at large. Also, with the IoT now being a major player in the technology – Internet of Things (IoT) is when the same would be expanded to a larger set of sectors such as manufacturing, energy, healthcare facilities, and transportation.
Most of the companies at large are using new IoT strategies and technologies – connecting the sensors, devices and machines in the physical world to the internet creates multiple new digital opportunities for industries.Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or things that are connected to the internet.
The main objective of IoT is to enable the objects communicate, sense or exchange data with each other. The interaction can be happened between human-human, human-things (objects), and things-things. Here, the devices connect to the internet through a technological communication mode such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart, iBeacon, NFC, and Zigbee Wireless, etc.
Generally the mobile phone is used as a bridge between the devices, through which the devices communicate to the internet and communicate with each other. The administrator of these devices can access the data collected by these devices or manage the devices from anywhere using mobile app or mobile browser.
Example for IoT: Let’s say you are on your way to a meeting by car, you get stuck in the traffic. If your car has access to your schedule or mobile calendar, it can notify the concerned person that you will be late (If your car is embedded with a location tracking sensor, and programmed with the actual time taken to reach the office). Here, the actions can be automatic or manual between the things-things and human-things.
