As the saying,
“Everything connects to everything else” IoT or Internet of things can be very
much related to it as IoT’s main enabling factor is the integration of several
technologies and communications solutions. In IoT, the hardware is connected to the
internet to perform various functions.
In today’s scenario, many such
operations are getting implemented as this is proving out to be advance, more
secure technology. Internet of things is a communication paradigm that envisions
future in which the objects of everyday life will be fully occupied with
microcontrollers transceivers for digital communication, and
suitable protocol stacks that will make them able to communicate with one
another and with the users, becoming an integral part of the Internet.
IoT can be used in almost every domain from household to big organizations. It
can be used for home automation, industrial automation, medical aids,
mobile healthcare, elderly assistance, intelligent energy management and smart
grids, automotive, traffic management, and many others.
IoT is generally used
for those devices that are incapable of having internet connections and which
can communicate with the network without the interference of human action.
of Internet of Things:
A simple light bulb in
a room that can be turned on and off through smartphone is a simple example of
IoT. Also, a door that automatically
opens after it recognizes the person through image recognition is an example of
IoT. An IoT device could be as fluffy as a child’s toy or as serious as a driverless
A smartwatch, a fitness band which
helps in keeping track of some of our vitals can be considered as everyday
example of IoT.
Advantages of IoT:
communication between devices which is known as a machine to machine communication
this helps in communication between one or multiple hardware devices and one or
many software devices.
Due to physical
objects getting connected and controlled digitally and centrally with wireless
infrastructure, there is a large amount of automation and control in the
workings. Without human intervention, the machines are able to communicate with
each other leading to faster and timely output.
One of the best
advantage of IoT is monitoring as it helps to monitor the current situation and
helps us understand the situation better so that we can act accordingly keeping
in mind the future perspective.
The time that is
taken by these devices are far less than the time compared to the manual work.
Passing of information and taking quick decision decrease the amount of time
taken to perform a particular function.
Quality of Life
All the applications of this technology culminate in increased comfort,
convenience, and better management, thereby improving the quality of life.
