In this revolutionizing time phase, when cars are keyless, clocks are needleless and smart phones getting smarter day by day, we have a phenomenon for staying connected. Yes, the Internet of Things (IoT) is now a well-known field, influencing information technology, management, business and what not. It is a network of technology based devices, digital or mechanical, mechanism or objects, animals and humans that are able to transfer information over a series of connections without any supervision by a human or a computer.
With several technologies emerging from time to time, automation and systems, wireless transferring, control systems, security, all of these contribute to the working of the Internet of things. For a normal person, this terminology is mostly used in the industry in concept of a smart home; automated appliances and system functioning in a house connected to the smart devices enabling the person to monitor, control and alter any functions.
In the early 80’s, the concept of smart work was on the verge when coke vending machines were on the discussion topic, which later became the first internet operated machine, enabling newer projects to be researched and exploited. Small chunks of data are converted into larger packets of integrated codes and messages that lead to innovation from an automated machine to completely human-free production units of factories.
Nowadays, research and development is being performed on the application of IoT, its connectivity, working in different perspectives such as the transport sector, homes, medical department, public services, consumer and many other aspects. The prior studies were conducted on the controlling and handling of data but the areas of the resources from which the data is obtained need to be worked on. This brings in principle of management, connecting allocation of resources with the internet of things (IoT). The idea is to build a virtual store of resources and manage it accordingly, applying different approaches towards performance oriented results with the help of technology.
Some of the application used widely are listed and elaborated below:
The households or simply those who work in offices for a living are the ones having the first impact. The consumer market have several application in the prospect of IoT.
It is based on the platform of smart devices connected in a network that an owner has the capability to control and command, whether at home or away. By the Usage of Alexa and Siri voice command systems to control appliances at home, even without the usage of a Wi-Fi connection.
Industrial IoT aids in manufacturing, packaging, technology operations and workers work efficiency. This manner the connection of operations with IoT provides means of monitoring and analyzing industrial system.
The boost in the usage of IoT devices has increased manifold. The large amount of applications are creating opportunities for penetrating into the field of information technology and computing, aiming to provide quality, benefits economically, socially and reducing human intervention in many matters. According to the statistics, it is estimated to be a 30 billion quantity of IoT devices by 2020, projecting its market value to be 7.1 trilliopn dollars in the future.
