Benefits Of Internet Of Things
The future of all technology is IoT or if you’re not familiar with the term, it’s called Internet of Things. Roughly 50 billion devices are expected to be connected by IoT by the year 2020. As you see, for the IOT to work, every device has to have a piece of software or microelectromechanical system short for MEMS.
Actually, MEMS are small low power sensors, so small in size that 100 of them can be fitted in a dime. Internet of things is capable to sense, act and think but only with the availability of these sensors. They are also the ears and eyes of Internet of Things. Apart from that, the Internet of Things is a network of physical objects that are embedded technology in an effort to sense and communicate or interact with internal states or external environment.
Everything from smart phones that we carry in our pockets, buildings which we live and work, to the cars we’re driving are linked to this massive network of data. Well sooner or later, there would be a global system of interconnected sensors, computer networks, actuators as well as devices that make use of internet protocol which holds great potential in changing our lives that it is usually seen as the next generation of the internet.
Internet of Things is internetworking of the physical devices, cars or also referred as smart devices and connected devices, buildings and several other items embedded with sensors, electronics, software as well as network connectivity that allow these objects to exchange and collect data. To make things a lot simpler, either with or without human touch, devices can connect to other devices. The machine will be able to know the condition it’s in and whenever necessary, perform its own maintenance when it is fitted with these sensors.
There are 10 million self-driving cars that are expected to be out on the road by the year 2020 and expected to reduce traffic accidents and fatalities by up to 90 percent. To be able to bring you to your destination safely, these cars will be communicating to other cars, traffic lights, weather station and even on the very road you’re driving on, all of which become available due to Internet of Things.
Whether you believe it or not, the Internet of Things allows objects to be controlled or even sensed on a remote location across existing network infrastructure which creates an opportunity for direct integration of the physical world in computer based system and then leads to having improved accuracy, economic benefit and efficiency. Sooner or later, everything will be connected to a massive network allowing us to have easier communication through IoT.
