What is IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical object or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data.
IoT allows objects to be sense and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit.
“Things” in the IoT sense, can refer to wide variety of devices such as heart monitoring implants, bio-chip transponder on farm animal, electric clams in coastal waters, automobile with built-in sensors, DNA analysis devices for environmental/food/pathogen monitoring or field operation devices that assist fire-fighters in search and rescue operations.
These devices collect useful data with the help of various existing technology and then autonomously flow the data between other devices
