Technology never fails to bring us exciting development and always promise to make our lives better. In recent years, there has been an explosion of creativity of technology and innovation, with projects that dare conducted in all corners of the earth: from wireless power, 3D printing, gamification, autonomous vehicles and automatic content recognition, to mobile robots and – the topic of this post – The Internet of Things, or, as some call it, The Internet of Everything. Sounds great?
Well, yes because it is. The companies like IoT SENSORS promise no shortage of game-changing, with the ultimate goal of bringing all the inanimate objects to life, in a truly Frankenstein-esque fashion.
What is the Internet of Things?
Internet of Things (IOT) is a scenario where everything – the device, man, network, etc. – has a unique identifier and the ability to communicate via the Internet. The idea is to create a situation where we do not have to control each piece of equipment separately, but have a top-level control over an integrated complex chain of events, through the 'army' of interconnected devices that can communicate with each other and with us.
Internet of everything combines several trends, including cloud computing, the growth of connected devices, Big Data, increasing use of video, and the growing importance of mobile applications compared to traditional computing applications. Internet of Things is the result of the evolution of the tendency of ubiquitous computing, a trend that is assumed to be the need of embedding processors in everyday objects.
