Introduction of IoT
Iot stands for the Internet of Things. The term “Things” refers to objects (home appliances and devices) that we use in our in daily life. These objects are accessible or connected through the Internet, called Internet of Things.
Internet of Things can be defined as, a network of physical objects that are integrated into the software, electronic devices, and sensors, allowing these objects to collect and exchange data.
The goal of IoT is to extend Internet connectivity from standard devices such as a computer, mobile phone, and electronic devices. IoT makes virtually everything “smart” by improving certain aspects of our lives with the power of data collection, artificial intelligence algorithms, and networks.
For Example: Let’s take the example of Home automation. Suppose, your family goes out for a holiday, and by mistakenly the machine was left switched on. In that case, without IoT, we had no option, and this could also result in the damage of the appliance. But, with the help of IoT, the appliances can be controlled with the help of your mobile or computer, and it can be switched ON or OFF at any time and from anywhere.
History of IoT
The term “Internet of Things” is in existence since twenty years. But the real idea of connected devices has existed for longer, at least since the 70s. At that time, the idea was often called “integrated Internet” or “generalized computing”. The term “Internet of Things” was invented by Kevin Ashton in 1999 while he was working with Procter & Gamble (which was later MIT’s Auto-ID Centre). Kevin Ashton, who worked on supply chain optimization, wanted to draw senior management’s attention to an exciting new technology called RFID. Because the Internet was the most popular in 1999 and it made sense, he called his presentation of the Internet of Things.
