IoT – Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is a network of connected devices. This connection is enabled by the use of sensors, the internet and the cloud. The sensors gather data which is then analysed using a cloud-based application to make decisions in real time. IoT has shown great potential for both consumer and industrial applications.

FAQs

What does IoT stand for?
IoT stands for the Internet of Things.

Who invented IoT?
Contrary to popular belief, IoT is not a technology. It was not invented by one individual.
The term, ‘Internet of Things’ was coined in 1991 by Kevin Ashton, the director of Auto-ID sensors. It has evolved a lot since then.

What are the major components of connected devices?
In a simplistic scenario, a sensor is attached to a thing. The thing could be a machine or an object of interest. The sensors collect data by monitoring the activities of the device. The collected data is sent over to the cloud platform via the network. On receiving the data, the cloud platform analyses it and gives us the required information to make decisions in real time.
