The internet of things

internet of things

Kevin Ashton termed the word “Internet of things” in 1999, but for now it is one of the hottest topics in the world of open source and web development. And it is estimated that by 2020 the internet of things would consist of about 50 billion objects connected with each other.

Connection of physical objects which can be embedded with electronics and controlled through air by means of software over a network is known as the internet of things.

IoT enables the user to connect, control and communicate with their everyday gadgets by creating a smarter way of man and machine interface and more beyond the machine to machine interface by promoting smarter transportation, smarter homes, smart city and smart power grids which may not evolve the knowledge of human in other words autonomous thinking.

Manufacturing facilities utilize the Internet of Things in their manufacturing process in which the welding robots, conveyors and all the necessary production materials are connected precisely through a local network and work accordingly with a collective mind with necessary data and report the engineers involved in the process of production.

The other good example in the internet of things is Tesla’s auto pilot system. By enabling auto pilot the cars electronic embedded system connects with the real time satellite data and with the cars sensors and cameras the car begins to make a collective learning from the shared devices and drive the car itself to the destination without any of the user interface.

There is more chance for Internet of things to become a security nightmare!
