Internet of Things

INTRODUCTION

The Internet of things which is famously known as IOT, refers to the concept of extending Internet connectivity beyond the conventional computing platforms like personal tablets, computers and mobile devices, and into almost any range of traditionally non-internet-enabled physical or "dumb" devices and everyday objects. Embedded with electronics, Internet connectivity, and other types of hardware, e.g., sensors; these devices can interact or communicate with others over the web, and are quite often remotely controlled and monitored.

The IOT has evolved, thanks to the convergence of multiple technologies, real-time analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors, and embedded systems. Traditional fields of embedded systems, control systems, wireless sensor networks, automation that includes home and building automation, etc. all contribute to enabling the Internet of Things or IOT.

APPLICATIONS

Whenever we expect of IoT systems, the most crucial and efficient application that stands out every time is Smart Home ranking as top IOT application on all channels. Just like smart homes, wearables also remains a hot topic among potential IOT applications. IoT solutions offered in the Smart City area solve various city-related problems comprising of traffic, reduce air and noise pollution and help make cities safer. Retailers have already started adopting IoT solutions and using embedded systems across multiple applications that improve the operations of the store such as purchase hike, reducing theft reduction, enabling inventory management, and enhancement of the consumer’s shopping experience.

The three ordinary things that we often don't pay enough attention to, but which I believe are the drivers of all success, are hard work, perseverance, and basic honesty. - Azim Premji, Chairman of Wipro Limited
