IoT or the Internet of Things is the connection of more than millions of physical objects to the Internet and also refers to the collection of data and sharing. This is only possible through processors that are cheap, and wireless networks as it can be easily turned into anything whether it is a pill or a big airplane into the parts of IoT. Another height of digital intelligence is being added to the devices, making them enabled to get communicated with human beings and merge both the world of digital and physical, otherwise, it would be considered as dumb. Any physical device can be easily converted to an IoT device, only if it can get connected and controlled by the Internet. Let’s have an example, A light bulb that can get switched on and off by the apps installed in smartphones is an IoT object as also a motion sensor connected to the offices or to the street lights.
Basically, the term IoT is used when the devices have an internet connection and a network of humans to communicate and only for this reason PC and smart phone are not considered to be IoT devices though now it has been occupied more with sensors. However, a smartwatch and a fitness band might be considered an IoT device due to the pre-installed and fitted sensors into it.
Proper disposal is required for the processors to be cheap and power-saving and also become cost-effective by getting connected to more than a million devices or objects. In 1999 the phrase Internet of Things is formulated by Kevin Ashton, although a decade was cooked up by the technology to get caught up by the vision.
Earlier a suggestion was given to the devices that are connected to the internet which includes blogjects meaning objects maintain the records and blogs of the data of themselves connected with the internet, such as ubicomp, invisible and pervasive computing.
Many applications are being created for IoT. Recently I came across a project of health care where an application for health was created for the IoT by the team of company AleaIT Solutions Pvt. Ltd. They created such applications for the doctors who can track and locate the live location of the patients and helps them to provide the health care facilities wherever the patient is, the disease can be easily treated by the doctors and can help them, to make the cure.
Similarly, many more applications are created by them for IoT which will be useful for everyone not only today but also in the future.
