The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is an emerging topic of technical, social, and economic significance. Consumer products, durable goods, cars and trucks, industrial and utility components, sensors, and other everyday objects are being combined with Internet connectivity and powerful data analytic capabilities that promise to transform the way we work, live, and play.

In simple terms, the IoT (Internet of Things) stands for the connection of usually trivial material objects to the internet. – Teodor Mitew, Do objects dream of an internet of things?

As explained on IoT For All, in the Internet of Things, all the things that are being connected to the internet can be put into three categories:

  1. Things that collect information and then send it.
  2. Things that receive information and then act on it.
  3. Things that do both.

  1. Hey Amelia! You have described it in a very clear way. The Internet of Things doesn’t just connect physical objects like desks or cars– it also includes locations like classrooms and bus stops and even intangible objects like a store’s payment process. It’s definitely beneficial for our life and promoting smart city development and supporting 5G mobile network implementation. However, everything coin has two sides, there’s no doubt that IoT makes our life easier and convenient but it reminds us to keep security, privacy in mind.

    Here’s a link which deeply talks about the IoT and its impacts: https://epic.org/privacy/internet/iot/
