Internet is a very use full thing to people today. People use the internet to make their life easier. IoT is a new concept. It covered a big area. And today, IoT is the main part of human beings. Think, if you forget to switch off your light in the bedroom, now you can switch off the light by using your mobile phone through the internet. In this concept, we call it IoT or the IoT. A lot of people don’t know this concept but they use it. So, what is this, Let’s take about this.
Internet of Things : Definition
The IoT is a system. This is a network of physical objects like embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies that is use for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet.
This concept is use in different fields, They are agriculture, engineering, etc. lets talk about the basics of IoT.
Internet of Things : Basics
IoT united physical objects with the virtual world. Embedded systems connected thought and other long-distance communication technologies have enabled humans to have a better understanding of the world. These complex systems of sensors and actuators are called IoT. IoT is capable of supplementing or augmenting human activities while giving better insight to bigger systems. There are many applications of IoT.
But at the core of this is the micro controllers that power the computing for collecting and processing data. In this unit we will cover the basics of Arduino Microcontrollers with FreeRTOS. you will learn how to program a “thing” to be a part of larger system. You will also learn to collect basic data and analyze it for decision making with regard to IoT application.
So, I you got an idea about IoT.
What is the Internet of things?
The IoT brings the power of the internet, data processing and analytics to the real world of physical objects. For consumers, this means interacting with the global information network without the intermediary of a keyboard and screen; many of their everyday objects and appliances can take instructions from that network with minimal human intervention.
In enterprise settings, IoT can bring the same efficiencies to physical manufacturing and distribution that the internet has long delivered for knowledge work. Millions if not billions of embedded internet-enabled sensors worldwide are providing an incredibly rich set of data that companies can use to gather data about their safety of their operations, track assets and reduce manual processes. Researchers can also use the IoT to gather data about people’s preferences and behavior, though that can have serious implications for privacy and security.
History of IoT
In 1970 the actual idea of connect devices was propose. 1990, John Romkey creat a toaster which can turn on/off over the Internet .In 1995, Siemens introduced the first cellular module built for M2M. After that in 1999, The term “IoT” was use by Kevin Ashton during his work at P&G which became widely accepted. In 2004, The term is mention in famous publications like the Guardian, Boston Globe, and Scientific American. In 2005, UN’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU) published its first report on this topic. After that in 2008, The IoT is born. In 2011, Gartner, the market research company, include “The Internet(IOT) of Things” technology in their research.
So we can see IoT have a long history. This concept is still developing in the world. So we can see a lot of features in the future in IoT.
